Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge is the only private lodge situated inside the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park so all our game drives start from the lodge. Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge offers both early morning and afternoon/evening game drives. Game drive safaris are conducted in specially adapted open game viewing vehicles, with professional guides (maximum 9 people per vehicle). To preserve our wilderness no off-road driving is practiced. In addition to driving on our private concession within the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park we also have unlimited access to the greater Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park where you have the opportunity to spot the Big 5. Our guides meet the stringent requirements of Ezemvelo Parks Authority and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African bush are exciting, informative and safe.

Early morning tea/coffee, rusks & fruit are served on the deck before setting off on your morning drive. Another refreshment stop is made during the morning drive after which you return to the lodge to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast.

High tea is served in the early afternoon after which guests can enjoy an afternoon game drive with a sundowner break before driving into the early evening looking for nocturnal creatures. On arrival at the lodge guests are given the opportunity to freshen up before enjoying a delicious dinner on the deck.
