Our guide, Humbu, was very experienced and our coordinator, Jacqui, provided us plenty information but was not overbearing. The in-lodge drinks were reasonably priced. The food was excellent. We enjoyed dinner on our arrival day and had breakfast on our departure day. We...

We chose Black Rhino Lodge as it was a little cheaper than some of the other lodges in the Plianesberg National Park.
