Whether they are in Pilanesberg for sightseeing or are just passing through, visitors frequently choose to stay at the Black Rhino Game Lodge. To ensure that you have a wonderful time during your stay, the hotel provides several services, conveniences, and luxuries.

The malaria-free Black Rhino Game Reserve is located on the northwestern flank of the Pilanesberg National Park. It has its own secure, private entrance on the western border. There are no boundary fences between the two areas, so the wildlife is free to roam throughout both of them and the Big Five are also found in Reserve itself. 

Because of this, you will have the opportunity to view the vast majority of the animals that can be found in the Pilanesberg, such as the Big 5, the critically endangered African wild dog, a variety of rare antelope, and more than 354 species of birds.

This lower-lying reserve’s vegetation, which is predominantly sweet veld, is a nice contrast to the predominantly mixed sour veld found in the Pilanesberg, and it offers excellent opportunities to view elephants, black and white rhinos, buffalo, lions, and leopards.

The Black Rhino Game Reserve also possesses full traversing rights, which enable game vehicles operated by privately owned lodges to travel between the Pilanesberg National Park and the Black Rhino Game Reserve. 

This allows you to appreciate the seclusion of the reserve in addition to the resources of the national park, as well as the myriad sights and sounds that the wilderness has to offer.

The guests will be greeted on their journey of discovery by a team of enthusiastic hosts and game rangers who have years of experience. Open-air vehicle safaris through this picture-perfect game reserve will be a highlight for guests, and they will also have the opportunity to experience magical moments by the fireside while dining under the stars.

 Many people’s experiences in this one-of-a-kind region of Africa will leave them with fond memories.

The Black Rhino Game Lodge is the perfect place for a family to get away, and its spacious luxury suites will provide our guests with both comfort and elegance during their stay.

It is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for some peace and quiet, as well as excellent opportunities to watch birds. The central gathering area is a popular vantage point for watching elephants and buffalo because it looks out over a busy waterhole that is bustling with activity from a variety of animals and birds.

Accommodation

While accommodation in Pilanesberg National Park is as diverse as the park itself, with resorts, safari tents, and bush lodges, as well as chalets and self-catering, the exclusive lodges in the private Black Rhino Reserve, which was recently added to Pilanesberg National Park, will especially appeal to discerning travellers.

With some lodges only ten minute’s drive away, Pilanesberg Game Reserve is a good option for visitors who want to visit the internationally acclaimed Sun City.

With Luxury and Deluxe Suites, Black Rhino Game Lodge is an ideal family retreat. The central gathering area is a large open space that invites outdoor living, with views of a busy waterhole that is a hive of bird and animal activity and a favourite playground for elephants and buffalo.

The well-appointed open-plan lounge and dining areas spill out onto shady timber decks, which provide excellent areas for relaxation and game viewing.

The main lodge has 20 Luxury Suites and 3 Deluxe Suites. The suites are lavishly furnished. Each air-conditioned suite has a private patio with views of the surrounding forest as well as tea and coffee-making facilities.

Activities

The Black Rhino Game Lodge is a beautiful bushveld hideaway. It offers two exciting game drives per day for guests to explore the breathtaking landscape and get up close and personal with the wildlife that calls it home.

The Pilanesberg National Park is unique in that it is home to a wide variety of animal, bird, insect, reptilian, and vegetation species, including the Brown Hyena, Springbok, Red Eyed Bulbul, and Camel Thorn tree. The Pilanesberg National Park is a cross between the Kalahari Desert and the wetter Lowveld. The absence of malaria in the Pilanesberg is a significant advantage over other game parks further north.

The Million Dollar Golf Challenge and other spectacular events are held in Sun City, which is only a 33-kilometre drive from the Black Rhino Game Reserve.

A variety of exciting activities are also available, including game drives, bird watching from a viewing hide, bush walks (seasonal and at an additional cost), and in-room spa treatments (on request and in advance) Game drives are not permitted for children aged 0 to 5. 

At the discretion of management, children aged 6 to 11 are permitted on game drives. Children 12 and older are permitted on game drives at the full adult rate.

Quad Biking is very popular, with guests being taken on four-wheelers for adventure and wildlife while negotiating natural obstacles en route. These quad-biking adventure trails wind through the Letsatsing Game Park and are led by knowledgeable guides.

Guests can also try their hand at archery under the supervision of qualified instructors.
