Rhino Safari Camp
Rhino Safari Camp is a simple, very rustic camp run by owner Jenny Nobes, whose gracious hosting and enthusiasm for the area and its wildlife is quite humbling. It’s set in Matusadona National Park on Rhino Island (known locally as Elephant Point), on the shores of Lake Kariba. When water levels are low, the island is linked to the mainland via a narrow land bridge which allows the movement of game to and fro; when levels are high it’s cut off by a narrow channel.
Our view of Rhino Safari Camp
Rhino Island is a great place to spend two or three nights. It’s remote and rustic, and delivers really authentic safari experience. Meanwhile, the vast expanse of water all around differentiates it from many safari camps in drier parks.
Due to Zimbabwe’s recent troubled past, Rhino Safari Camp hasn’t had the visitors, or the investment, that it’s needed in recent years. As the result, some of the camp’s fabric feels quite tired. However, Jenny’s great hospitality, coupled with high-quality guiding and good game-viewing, go a long way to make up for this.
