"We absolutely enjoyed the 3 days we spent at this lodge. The staff was great and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. The food, oh wow the food was good,3 meals a day and high tea. It was excellent all round. The game viewing was excellent we saw the big 5 in a weekend. My hubby and I were celebrating our anniversary and my birthday and the Lodge went over and above what we expected. The busy chef took time to bake a cake for me and the staff wished me a wonderful birthday with their African rendition of happy birthday. I felt really special!!! On our anniversary day they prepared our room for a romantic turn-down with candles and champagne that was such a lovely touch. We loved this lodge as well as the overall service we received."

"The Black Rhino Lodge is definitely worth a visit. The staff is friendly, food was nice and the rooms are big!! I especially enjoyed the shower outside in the sun! We saw lots of animals during our game drive, unfortunately no cats, except for some lions very far away… But we had the pleasure of having the manager of the lodge as our ranger. He was knowledgeable, fun, relaxed and very friendly. We enjoyed every game drive! The waterhole by the common restaurant area is also nice."
"We visited and stayed here at the start of our South African holiday and had a great time. The room was great, the meals very good and the two safaris we did were great. We would highly recommend this place."

"We stayed at the Black Rhino for two nights, and each was fantastic! Our safari tour guide Philip obviously know all his stuff and have us the best information on all the animals. We saw giraffes and rhinos on every safari, and a lions on one as well. An elephant came right up to the waterhole in front of our room- which is considered normal. The food is to die for and we even got a fire show by one of the guys! Already planning a return trip! Only 15 minutes from Sun City."
"Very nice for a quick weekend getaway - lovely, spacious rooms - loved the outdoor shower. Beautiful lodge, great service. Didn't see a lot on the game drives, but guides made every effort to keep it interesting. Wouldn't mind going back"
"fantastic experience at the black rhino game park. We saw elephants drinking at the water hole, rhinos, lions, wildebeests, giraffes and lots of others. Our two girls aged 7 and 8 also had a great time. Accommodation was lovely. Food plentiful."
"My 23 year old son and I spent a wonderful 5 days on Safari at the Black Rhino Game Lodge and were not disappointed. All the staff were warm and friendly, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the food was amazing. We ate breakfast and watched Elephants at the watering hole and ate lunch and watched Zebra, Impala and wilder beast. The whole atmosphere was so relaxing. The rangers were very knowledgeable and shared their information perfectly, answering questions, stating facts but also knowing when words were not needed. Their motto was " If you are happy, then we are happy" and they worked tirelessly. We saw most of the big 5 and actually witnessed a Lion Kill right in front of us which was awesome! I came away feeling 'changed' somehow, spiritually and mentally because of the peacefulness and relaxed atmosphere but also as if the animals had given me some sort of therapy! The Black Rhino Game Lodge has a special place in my heart and we will definitely return."
"The Black Rhino Lodge proved to be exceptional value for money. The price included all meals and game drives and I was blown away by the entire experience. The Staff were warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. The lodge itself is exceptional, and is relatively modern without being intrusive to the environment. Its perfectly designed to allow maximum light and we had a view of the surrounding bush at all times. Wonderful lounge area to relax in, with more than enough couches to sit and view the watering hole nearby. The highlight of the place were the game drives. Matthew, our guide , was respectful of the reserve and the animals and very knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to see the Big 5 on one Drive. As a local, it impressed me that this lodge did not ruin the environment to create a monstrosity in the wild but created a perfect lodge, modern and un-intrusive, that blended in perfectly. I would definitely go back and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Pilansberg."

"Having just got back from Black Rhino Lodge a few days ago after my second trip there in two years I was still blown away by the magic of the concession and the staff at the lodge. I stayed at Black Rhino for 6 nights and I can not think of one single thing to complain about. The staff were fantastic. Dale greeted us with a welcome drink and smiles, Casper and Mari Li, cooked amazing food was that was delicious, with something for everyone (and even would cook something fresh if requested), Daniel was gracious and warm and Spencer did an amazing fire display at the Boma night. Our room was number 14, opposite the water hole. Stunning views with Impurla, Leopard and Kudos regularly making an appearance while we watched with a drink. The room is comfortable with everything you could need. Spacious, air con, comfortable huge bed and shower was powerful and hot. We even were visited by a few big creepy crawlies that Spencer came and took out for us. There was nothing that was to much for the team to do for us. We felt incredibly spoilt. On top of all of this we had the best ranger, Matthew S. Having gone last year and experienced the beauty of Pilansberg Park I thought I had seen it all but no. Matthew brought the park alive time after time. With breathtaking views, that brought me to tears at the beauty of it as well some amazing sightings, Lioness with cubs, two lions kills, cheater, leopard, elephants, baboons, hippos, zebra, rare black rhino and white rhino sightings, kudos and so so many more. Every drive (and I had 12) was a real adventure. We even found the big five several times over the 6 days and on one drive found the big 5 in 2 hours!!! Matthew is the best ranger for sure. I would highly 100% recommend Black Rhino whether for a couple of days or like me, nearly a week. One word to describe the entire experience and the staff that springs to mind is AWESOME!!!!!! Thank you again Black Rhino and see you all again soon xxxxx"
"The drive to the lodge is a rather treacherous road with potholes everywhere - but makes for an adventurous start to a superb weekend in the bush. Staff were great and service was just superb. All meals were buffet, but what a great selection there was. Game drive was insightful with some great animal sightings. Accommodation was wonderful with a nice outside patio - from where I saw some Kudu in the veld. The outside shower makes for an awesome shower there is an indoor one too if it does get too chilly in winter. Overall a fantastic stay - most definitely recommended for a relaxing stay in the bush."
