About Rhino Sands Safari Camp

Rhino Sands Safari Camp is a luxury tented retreat situated in Manyoni Private Game Reserve, a well-known Big Five safari destination in the beautiful KwaZulu Natal province. Built as an eco-friendly lodge, Rhino Sands Safari Camp is unique in that it offers guests an authentic safari experience in traditional East African-style canvas tents. Set within the lush riverine forest, the camp is designed to offer guests a way to reconnect with nature in a peaceful, fully-equipped setting.

With only four luxury tents, guests are guaranteed a personal and exclusive safari experience in spectacular surroundings, where private decks host to splash pools overlooking the bush await. Guests will also be treated to twice daily game drives, delicious homecooked meals, attentive service, nightly campfires under the stars, and sunset sundowners with a view. A stay at Rhino Sands Safari Camp will have you returning time and time again.

Rhino Sands Safari Camp Setting

KwaZulu Natal is often considered a traveller's dream with its subtropical climate and natural environment that lends itself to adventure, and exceptional game-viewing. As one of South Africa's premier wildlife destinations, the Big Five Manyoni Game Reserve offers intimate access to world-class game-viewing, as well as an exciting Zululand wilderness rich in birdlife.

The guest experience at Rhino Sands Safari Camp revolves around two daily game drives that occur within the private reserve, and given the intimate nature of the destination, guest safari experiences and sightings will always be small and respectful – creating an unforgettable opportunity to experience Africa’s iconic wildlife.

Rhino Sands Safari Camp impact highlights

Manyoni Private Game Reserve was founded in 2004 when 17 private properties dropped their fences to form a reserve that became home to a population of black rhinos. The 23,000 hectare reserve in the heart of Zululand is one of the most animal-rich and species-diverse areas of South Africa. Rhino Sands Safari Camp has been built and operates with minimal disruption to its natural surroundings. It has been designed sustainably and the environment and the impact upon it has been considered with every decision made in running Rhino Sands.
