Your private group safari near Durban just got a whole lot merrier!

We recently wrapped up the much-anticipated renovations of The Cottage and we are thrilled with the new look. Photographs just don’t do it justice though, so you’ll to have come and see for yourself. And because it can now sleep six people in three bedrooms, you can bring another two friends or family members on safari – the more the merrier!

The two ground floor en-suite bedrooms have each been fitted with an outdoor shower. So you can be completely at one with nature, while knowing that the only neighbours ‘peeking’ are birds in the surrounding trees – we promise! It really is a special experience watching the clouds float by or the stars twinkling in the night sky above, while you are freshening up.

The next addition to The Cottage is strictly kids-only…

We have built a cosy two-bed loft room at the top of a wooden staircase especially for the kids. While there is no bathroom attached to this room, the brand new third bathroom ensures everyone is seen to and comfortable. Children of all ages are welcome at Rhino River Lodge. For the safety and enjoyment of all, little ones under four years may not participate in game drives on the reserve.

The Cottage features a cozy lounge, dining room and a beautiful, modern kitchen that is fully equipped for self-catering purposes. There is one thing that, importantly, hasn’t changed. It is The Cottage’s piece de resistance – the private swimming pool!

So, now that we’ve tempted you with booking into the spruced-up Cottage, who are you going to bring with you on your private group safari near Durban? If you decide to make it a family safari, we have a short list of tips that are proven to ensure both young and old have an epic holiday. Find them here.
