Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge
Safari Lodge in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park,
Zululand, KwaZulu Natal
Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is the only private lodge in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, providing guests with exclusive luxury and outstanding service within South Africa’s oldest national park. Each luxury room or villa is stylishly decorated and includes a spacious bedroom with impressive views from the bathroom, outdoor shower and outdoor deck. From each carefully considered space, you can watch the wildlife below, uninterrupted in their natural habitat as they have been for decades in this protected area.
Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge offers luxury safari accommodation and all rooms are positioned to take advantage of the spectacular views and offer guests the utmost privacy and comfort. The modern, high-end decor is softened by four-poster beds dressed in crisp white linen.
Along with game viewing at the lodge and on morning and evening game drives, Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge offers a host of authentic Africa experiences - from wild bush walks to traditional Zulu homestays and rejuvenating spa treatments. In keeping with the Isibindi ethos, Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is a joint venture between the National Empowerment Fund and the local Mphembeni community who own the land on which the lodge is built. People from the community have been trained to work in various departments and now constitute 97% of the lodge staff.
2 Game Drives daily
At Rhino Ridge you have a unique window on Africa’s wildlife. From each cleverly-designed open space, you are able to watch rhino, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and perhaps even the elusive painted wolves (wild dog) at the local drinking hole in the bushveld below, uninterrupted in their natural habitat, as they have been for decades in this protected natural area. With expansive views from every room, this setting is everything you could ask for - and more! - in a luxury safari lodge.
Nothing can quite prepare you for the experience of walking in the wild of a game reserve in Africa. And Hluhluwe iMfolozi is no theme park – this is the real thing, a vast safari park with untamed lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and one of the highest concentration of white rhino of all wildlife parks in the world.
