Everything was perfect. We felt like we were royalty, the service was so good. The food was sensational. We had the same ranger every time we went on safari so he knew what we had seen and what he had to look for. Great knowledge.

We spent three nights at Black Rhino and had a wonderful stay. Lovely staff who worked hard to make our trip so special for us. We had two guides who were very good and so we managed to see the big five but also learned so much about the flora and fauna of the area. My daughter has severe food...

Excellent game drives both in the local reserve and in the Pilanesberg game park. Our guide Steyn was very knowledgeable and seemed to just 'know' where the best sightings would be. We had white lion males walk past the jeep about 2m from us, cheetahs, a brown hyena, elephant and buffalo to name a few... But the absolute highlight was...

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Game drives were good despite the drought! Our ranger, Steyn, was very knowledgable and went through a lot of effort to maximise the game drive! Room was amazing, food satisfactory.

From the moment Eva from reception came out to meet us on our arrival, to when 21 elephants bade us farewell a couple of days later, we were treated like VIP guests. The lodge staff, accommodation, meals, setting and game viewing were all beyond expectations. Our very knowledgeable game ranger Phillip hosted 2 drives of around 3 hours each daily,...

This was a totally different break to what we are used too. You don't get to see 'The Big Five' on every holiday. The whole stay was amazing.
