Rhino Sands is an intimate high end safari camp featuring just 4 guest tents in the heart of the Manyoni Private Game Reserve.

Rhino Sands is situated within the Manyoni Private Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal, one of the best value Big 5 private reserves in South Africa. The Reserve covers a large area of 23,000 hectares of beautiful wild bush and hill country with healthy populations of the big five and plains game.

There are only four guest tents, set upon wooden decks and decorated in a classical safari style. Each of four luxury tented suites are tucked away in the riverine forest with spectacular views of the Msunduze riverbed. Each tent features a lounge, bathroom with bathtub and shower, private deck with plunge pool, outdoor shower, and bedroom that can be configured as a king or two singles.

The main camp features a reception, lounge, bar, and multiple dining areas, including our traditional boma, and the main camp is connected to the safari tents via a raised wooden walkway that weaves through the riverine forest.

Rhino Sands offers two daily game drives of 2.5-3 hours guided by expert game rangers on open safari vehicles. Rhino Sands guarantees a maximum of six guests per vehicle, ensuring comfortable space and prime game-viewing ability for each guest.

Rhino Sands combines excellently with wetland safari in St Lucia iSimisilango Wetlands and beach hotels on the KwaZulu Natal Coast, it is 3-4 hrs drive from Durban Airport.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
