I've lived in South Africa now just over two years. In that time I’ve tried to get out and about and do as much as a possibly can. I've stayed at numerous lodges and done game drives in many different parks but I keep coming back to Rhulani as my favorite. The entire atmosphere at Rhulani just lends itself to a rustic, yet luxurious and comfortable escape. The staff are hands down, incredible. From the welcome to the lodge, to the meals, to the turn down service, or building a fire in your iron stove during the winter, the staff goes above and beyond to ensure that you have an incredible experience. I even stayed with my friends last year for my birthday and the staff went out of their way to ensure that it was a special and memorable day.
Beyond just the relaxing atmosphere of the lodge, the friendliness of the staff, what is also great is the wealth of knowledge that each game guide has when they take you out into the park. In my many trips to Rhulani, I've had two of the three different guides on staff. They go out of their way to make sure they take you to see the animals you're interested in, and will search tirelessly to find the animals you desire. While not always on a game drive will you get to see every animal you'd like, they do their utmost to make it happen. The guides have a great ability of making their time with you, not just as a guide taking you to see animals but by the end, as a new friend.
During my time in South Africa, I've recommended Rhulani to many friends and co-workers, everyone who has stayed, has come back to thank me and looking forward to the next time that they will be able to return to Rhulani. In my trips there I've been lucky to see all of the Big Five, enjoy amazing food, a relaxing and private atmosphere, and truly an amazing stay each time that always has me wishing I could stay even just one night longer. If you are considering staying at Rhulani, you won't regret and you'll leave with new friends that can't wait to welcome you back and make you feel like you're returning home to family and friends every time you stay.
