“Once In A Lifetime...”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

… may you find such a magical place as Rhino River Camp. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. We absolutely adored this camp and miss being there so much. The manager, Alberto, and the staff were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The food was INCREDIBLE, the service was outstanding, and our safari guide (Joel) was top-notch. I actually cried when I had to hug Joel goodbye on our last day!

We stayed in the lovely tent at the end of the path and fell asleep to the river running and the sounds of the bush. Coffee was brought to our tent at the exact second of our wake-up call, and the post-safari afternoons were spent lounging by the pool before our evening activity. Treat yourself to something wonderful and stay here.

Thank you to everyone at Rhino River Camp for making our stay in Meru so memorable. I fell in love with Africa from the moment I arrived and cannot wait to return. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for an amazing holiday! We will be back and miss you all!

My family and I stayed in this lovely camp over the New Year and would like to return again. They gave us a fabulous tent with an outdoor jacuzzi and view of the forest. The facilities are clean and well-maintained. Service was superb and food was impeccable. The manager, Andrea Maggi, a very warm and friendly Italian guy, was there to see to our comfort. On New Year's eve, he served a traditional Italian dish and popped a bottle of sparkling wine not just for us but for all the staff as well, so we had an impromptu family-style celebration. If you want to have close encounters with wild life in the camp itself (such as bush babies and exotic birds), then this is the place! From the Martinez family

Room Tip: Don't come during the rainy season because the roads can get rather flooded. But the camp has a...

This is the ultimate example of "glamping" or glamorous camping. The setting, the staff and especially Alberto were warm, welcoming, efficient and so very friendly. The food for all meals was fantastic and the ambience was peaceful and interesting. The game drive in the rhino sanctuary and Meru National Park was exciting and offered a wide variety of animals and the drivers were experienced and very accommodating. I only wish we had been able to spend more time there.

Room Tip: All are equally great - it is the setting and the staff that make the Rhino Camp so excellent.

Thank you Alberto, Jacqueline for a perfect stay, hard to express in words ! We were treated with love. Hard to believe the former chef was even better !! Impeccable service from every single person of the staff ! You were our 6th camp and a perfect wind down after 2 weeks of safari in Kenya. Beautiful tropical green and relaxing environment. Great guides, authentic park and beautiful birds !

Room Tip: The new family room is amazing!

It was a really amazing experience - our 2 last nights in Kenya after a safari trip to Samburu which was perfect in every way... If you never slept near a waterfall you will never understand. Beautiful scenery, hard to describe...A nice spacious tent with a stunning view on the waterfall only a few steps from your terrace. Lovely birds singing as loud as possible to be heard over the waterfall noise, Very delicious meals served wherever you would like it to have.Super efficient and attending staff with Wilphus as their head (who is in charge of everything, it seems). The amazing bush-babies coming for the slices of bananas at down. Very experienced safari stuff who will show you all possible attraction of this area... we will love to come back and we will advise all our friends this fatastic place. Yes, and one more thing: no mosquitoes!!!

Rhino River camp in Meru National Park North Kenyais a wonderfull camp in the shadow of old treesproviding always fresh air in the dry Meru , like a perfect oasis,and with a superb swiming pool close to clear water falls ,merveillous sound at night and delicious cuisine presented with art which may challenge the best 4 stars restaurants;
Excellent hospitalitywith an Italian touch ,staff always smilingvery attentive and most of game drives I could see a lot of animals particularly black and white rhinos so endangered and endemic species (lot of reticulated giraffes, lesser kudus , gerenuks , grevy zebras...).and spectacular landscapes,more ,Elsa's grave, lionness of Joy Adamson and climbing a crater with indigenous trees to contemplate vast wildernessworst a visit,
Perfect tents and gentle ambiance make this camp so invinting ;GO To discover one of the best camp I have experienced after 20 trips in Africa !!!!Formidable
