The private reserve has been incorporated into the Pilanesberg and safari operators have unrestricted access to its public roads. Te Black Rhino Safari Lodge offers guests luxury accommodation and an exclusive safari experience.

On this popular tour, you’ll discover the scenic wonders of this unique reserve which lies at the base of an ancient volcanic crater and in a transitional zone between the dry, arid Kalahari Desert and lush Lowveld region. The geology and ecology of the reserve are fascinating, and it’s famous for having the highest concentration of game in the country. On top of that, Greater Pilanesberg is a malaria-free region. 

Before the drive back to Johannesburg, you have the option of a game drive in a closed tour vehicle in Pilanesberg Game Reserve or spending a few fun hours at Sun City.

Accommodation

BLACK RHINO GAME LODGE ǀ Luxury accommodation in Greater Pilanesberg

23 luxury suites, sleeping up to 46 adult guests

Black Rhino Game Lodge is a luxury safari lodge located in a malaria-free private game reserve that lies on the western boundary of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Black Rhino Private Game Reserve has been incorporated into the 58 000-hectare Big 5 game reserve and game roams freely between the two reserves. Access to the private reserve is restricted to the safari operators and paying guests.

The thatched safari lodge lies nestled in a grove of shady Tamboti trees in a quiet corner of Pilanesberg, which was established in an ancient volcanic crater. The protected wildlife region lies in an ecological transition zone; between the dry, arid Kalahari and the lush Lowveld. The unique biosphere supports species from both ecozones.

Each elegant suite is airconditioned, has an ensuite bathroom and outdoor shower and a cozy lounge that leads out onto a patio that overlooks a busy waterhole. The open-plan main lounge, bar and dining area is elegantly decorated and the high thatched ceilings lets in gorgeous natural light. Enjoy lazy days around one of two plunge pools after you return from the early morning game drive.

Children of all ages welcome at Black Rhino Game Lodge.
