Rhino Sands Safari Camp
Mkuze | Zululand
We would like to introduce you to South Africa’s newest luxury safari destination, Rhino Sands Safari Camp. We’re getting back to the basics of safari…canvas, nature, romance and luxury all combined into one incredible experience in the big five Manyoni Private Game Reserve right in the heart of Zululand.
At Rhino Sands, we embrace the idea of a bespoke safari experience. While the daily rhythm revolves around game drives and meal times, each day is set to be a little bit different than the one before. With a maximum of only eight guests in camp at any time, your stay is guaranteed to be a personal and exclusive experience.
In addition to the black rhinos, the reserve is now home to all of the big five (rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion) and has seen the re-introduction of two endangered carnivore species, cheetahs and African wild dogs. We have become one of the premier wildlife-viewing destinations in Kwa-Zulu Natal and we are one of the most beautiful reserves in the area with varied landscapes from acacia thornveld to open savannah to the riverine forest. Game drives on the reserve are regulated and coordinated by the ecotourism businesses to minimize the impact on the environment and the stress on the animals and to provide guests a better and more intimate game viewing experience.
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.
The entire camp is set under canvas upon wooden platforms within the riverine forest. The main camp area features a reception office, casual bar lounge space, formal lounge, and both formal and casual dining areas. There is also a large boma area complete with bush oven for guests to enjoy dining fireside beneath the stars.
