Family Cottages
We have two family cottages at the private game lodge that can accommodate up to four people. Each cottage has two double bedrooms (one is a second story loft-style room), a shared bathroom, a living room/kitchen, tea and coffee making facilities, a fully stocked mini bar, and a private boma. The facilities are perfect for a small family that would like to share accommodation or groups of friends that would like a little extra space. The cottages are equipped with ceiling fans and feature thatched roofs and stone tile floors to keep the room cool.

En-suite Double Rooms
We have four double en-suite luxury rooms at our private game lodge. Each room has either one double bed or two single beds covered by a large mosquito net, with a bathroom, a sitting area, and a private veranda. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities along with a fully stocked mini-bar. The rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and feature thatched roofs and stone tile floors to keep the room cool.

The Homestead
Stay in open, elegant surroundings, at Rhino River Lodge's exclusive Homestead. The house can accommodate up to four guests and boasts little extra luxuries like vast windows looking out onto the grounds. A spacious lounge opens onto the edge of the camp‘s boundary with un-touched bushveld views. Comfy double beds make this the ideal getaway for a special "spoil-yourself" occasion. A private plunge pool and open deck complete the indulgent experience. The Homestead offers the standard Rhino River Lodge conveniences including tea & coffee making facilities, a fridge, cool stone floors and ceiling fans.
