About Black Rhino Lodge and The Pilanesberg
Black Rhino Game Lodge is one of the smaller lodges in the Pilanesberg.
If it is a smaller more intimate lodge you are looking for then this lodge is definitely for you.
Just a 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg, this lodge is close enough to make it a quick and easily accessible one or two night getaway.
The Game Lodge has 18 very spacious and luxuriously appointed bedroom suites.
Each comfortable air-conditioned suite offers a television, tea/coffee making facilities, mini bar and private patio that opens out into the bush. Each suite has an open plan bathroom with a closed toilet. There is a separate bath and shower and most rooms have an outdoor shower as well.
Black Rhino Game Lodge is set amongst the trees of an old Tamboti forest at the foot of an ancient volcanic crater that boasts one of South Africa’s most exciting Big 5 eco-tourism destinations, the greater Pilanesberg National Park.
The 58 000 hectares of wildlife wonderland and the magic of African bush, is the ideal location for a luxurious bushveld breakaway.
Located in the west side of the ‘Malaria Free’ Pilanesberg National Park, and only 33km from Sun City, The Black Rhino Game Lodge is built between a Tamboti forest, overlooking a busy waterhole, which is a hive of bird and animal activity, and a playground for the elephant. On many occasions, the stillness of the night is broken by the roaring of lions, and the franklins singing the morning wake up call.
Unlike any other national game park, the Pilanesberg hosts a combination of animal, bird, insect, reptilian and vegetation species, such as the Brown Hyena, Springbok, Red Eyed Bulbul and Camel Thorn tree. These species are normally found in dry areas, co-habitat with Impala, Black Eyed Bulbul and the Cape Chestnut trees are normally found in wetter areas. The Pilanesberg National Park is a perfect combination of the Kalahari and the wetter Lowveld.
