Rhino and Lion Reserve – A Day Filled with Adventure

The Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is an extensive natural highveld grassland only 45 minutes from Johannesburg. This popular nature reserve is visited by thousands of tourists, both local and international, every year.

The Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is a privately owned 1-600ha reserve where you can enjoy beautiful, fully equipped luxury chalets. On top of that a luxury-tented camp has been added, also with full facilities, to complete the look of the Rhino and Lion Reserve. While there remember to take your binoculars and camera, as you will have plenty of photo opportunities with over 200 bird species to view. The South African National Bird of Prey Centre regularly displays a variety of birds of prey but remember you can also view them naturally on the reserve.

The actual Rhino and Lion Reserve was founded in 1985, with an aim to preserve this beautiful area for private relaxation. It all started off with 2 White Rhinos imported from a German Zoo, from there a few of the antelope species was added. Now 25 different species are accommodated, a total collection of 600 heads of game.

If you only have time in your schedule for a day visit then by all means come and enjoy all the facilities at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve! As well as having access to the entertainment area you can also hire a thatched lapa and gain entry to the Lion and Predator camps.

This heritage site also provides you with sporting activities, like swimming and volleyball; to keep the whole family entertained. If a good braai on a warm summer evening is what you are looking for, braai facilities are available as well as a kiosk to get snacks or anything you may have forgotten, like that illusive toothbrush. You can also enjoy an ice cold drink at the Crocodile Pub while you watch the crocodiles lie around. So altogether the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is really a complete family holiday hidden around the corner from you in Johannesburg.
