Simply put this is the most amazing and stunning experience of my life. This camp is clean and small and you fell as though you are staying with friends in an eco-paradise rather than paying for an experience. The staff are beyond amazing they felt like family by the end of the stay. The grounds are meticulously maintained with a...

If there was one Safari on your 'wish' list I highly recommend the Rhino Safari Plains Camp. A nostalgic Ernest Hemingway approach. The living quarters are sensational, very comfortable and clean. To be able to lie in bed and listen to wildlife is a sound I will never forget. Waking up to zebras nearly at your tent and wilderbeast galloping...

WHAT an experience. I was taken here (by my wife) as a surprise and hoped to see Rhino. Never in my wildest dreams did I think we'd get as close as we did. The onlpy comment I made was that they could do with a telescope or powerful binoculars so that you could sit and watch the water hole from...

If you are not afraid to come close to wild animals while walking this is a fantastic experience. The guides know their job well, we never felt unsafe or that we would disturb the animals with our presence. We had a great time.

You walk in single file with 2 guides. Wonderful experience. Evening safari drives with sunset cocktails. Dinner is a 3 course set menu. Drinks are charged to a sheet and paid for at the...

We spent 2 nights at the Plains Camp (in between 2 nights at Rhino Post) and had a really awesome experience there. The "tents" are more like cabins with canvas walls - private en suite bathrooms and comfy real beds and wooded floors, with traditional furniture and ceiling fans. We felt like we were in an old world safari camp,...
