Activities Included in Your Stay

Embark on an unforgettable journey filled with adventure and discovery as you explore the array of activities included in your stay at Rhulani Safari Lodge.


Sensational game-viewing opportunities await you at Rhulani Safari Lodge, whether from an open-backed Land Cruiser or at the waterhole that is located directly in front of the lodge.

Birding paradise

Immerse yourself in a unique birding paradise – observe some of the over 400 bird species to be seen in the Madikwe Game Reserve on daily safaris and around the lodge. Rhulani has been awarded a special Birding Accolade by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.

Luxury safari cuisine

Dine under the magnificent African night sky, warmed by a roaring fire. And when we are not having dinner in the boma, there are a variety of other indoor and outdoor dining locations available. For those special occasions, enjoy a romantic dinner on your own private deck.

Our traditional Southern African cuisine is complemented by a selection of world-class South African wines.

According to the World Travel Market Global Trends Report 2010, 50% of the world's population can no longer see the stars at night because so few places remain where people can enjoy the skies pollution-free. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the grandeur of the heavens under a star-filled South African sky. Weather permitting.

Swimming pool and relaxation area

Enjoy a cocktail around the swimming pool, which overlooks the Madikwe Game Reserve. Or lie on loungers on our wooden sundeck and enjoy the warm African air.

Children’s activities

Your children will have fun in the playroom, which has toys, art supplies and DVDs. We also have babysitters to keep an eye on them while they are in the playroom, or when they take time off to hunt for bugs together.

Curio shop

Treat yourself to some fine souvenirs or find the perfect gift for those back home ... browse our well-stocked curio shop that offers a wide range of South African artistic creations as well as safari clothes.

Tshembo Hide

During the quiet hours, linger in the lounge at Tshembo Hide, our underground observation hide at the waterhole. Get a frog's perspective of the iconic animals and birds that inhabit Madikwe Game Reserve.
