The Camp is an intimite and exclusive safari experience with a maximum of eight guests in camp at any one time. Each Guest tent has its own private living space, verandah and pool and outdoor shower.

Introducing Rhino Sands – Opened October 2017

Designed to bring an authentic safari experience in traditional East African style to Kwa-Zulu Natal, Rhino Sands Safari Camp is an 8-bed luxury tented camp set on a peninsula in the Msunduze River in Manyoni Private Game Reserve.
Rhino Sands Safari Camp is the vision of the owner-management team from Rhino River Lodge created to offer safari guests an intimate way to reconnect with nature and one another. The safari experience has been crafted with an eye towards classical elegance, with intimate hosted meals dining on fine local cuisine, romantic sundowner stops, and entertaining evenings with your ranger around a camp fire.

The entire camp is set under canvas upon wooden platforms within the riverine forest. The camp has been constructed with minimal disruption to the natural forest, highlighting rather than dominating the surrounding environment. The camp is eco-friendly and electricity runs on a solar installation. The main camp area features a reception office, casual bar lounge space, formal lounge, cozy fireplace, and both formal and casual dining areas. There is also a large boma area for guests to enjoy dining fireside beneath the stars.

Guests can stay in one of four luxurious custom-built private tented suites located amid beautiful riverine forest, each featuring a private living area, outdoor shower, and swimming pool.
Each tent opens completely on three sides so guests can immerse themselves in the wilderness experience. All tents have stunning views of the river bed below.
The camp has been designed and decorated with an emphasis on the romance of the classical safari experience, with a nod towards traditional safari styling but including all the modern luxuries.
