Travelling with Rhino Africa
At Rhino Africa, we're all about shaking things up, doing good and making a difference – whether it's for Africa's wildlife, landscapes or communities. But don't worry, we're no boring bunch – we're all about living it up in luxury too!
So, when you travel with us, expect to be wowed by lavish locations and extravagant experiences that make a real impact on the world. Here are just some of the ways you can enrich your safari in Africa (without even trying).
Safari at Londolozi
There's no question that a safari at Londolozi Private Game Reserve leaves a lasting impression. Set in the heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park, a stay at any of the Londolozi camps promises adventurous Big 5 encounters, lazy leisure and wellness, and tantalising fine dining.
Live it up in leopard-laden lands while giving back to the community! Your Londolozi safari can be a wild ride for more than just yourself. By supporting rural education and healthcare whilst also safeguarding the haven rhinos and other iconic species call home, you're helping to elevate the entire wildlife and human ecosystem.
At Thornybush Game Reserve, safari adventures and luxury lodgings are the norm, making it one of the top spots in Southern Africa. But that's not all! This reserve is also known for its unique community and conservation efforts, making it a one-of-a-kind destination for your African escapades.
Experience the ultimate blend of luxury and impact by visiting the Nourish Eco Village and the SEDIWA (Sustainable Enterprise Development in Wildlife Areas) Hub.
Together with Thornybush, these organisations are forging a powerful alliance for community and conservation. Here you can witness the transformation of local children and adults, empowered through valuable training, hands-on learning tools, innovative entrepreneurship and self-sustainability programs.
Safari at Singita
Singita's many lodges in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Rwanda are like a luxury wonderland of spa treatments and gym shenanigans, shimmering swimming pools, boutique stores and galleries that are a feast for the eyes, and wine boutiques that'll make you swoon. But don't let all the fun and games distract you from the fact that Singita is also a sanctuary for wildlife and conservation efforts.
Singita is a trailblazer in the wild world of safeguarding biodiversity through out-of-the-box wildlife management techniques and an unwavering commitment to sustainability.
They're on a mission to bring species back from the brink of extinction, protect vital ecosystems, and empower local communities. And, let's not forget, their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions is like a breath of fresh air, paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable future.
Safari at Phinda
Phinda Private Game Reserve is often described as "Seven Worlds of Wonder" because it contains seven distinct habitats. The luxury reserve is also close to the Indian Ocean coastline boasting pristine beaches and colourful coral reefs, so you can enjoy both bush and beach experiences.
At Phinda, they're not just proud of their impact experiences – they're downright giddy about them! Guests are welcome to jump in on routine monitoring or research projects, all in the name of saving the precious species of the reserve.
From tagging along on a privately guided pangolin research excursion and helping the vet team notch a snoozing rhino's ear to getting up close and personal with an anaesthetised elephant as they swap out its tracking collar, you can make a tangible difference.
