Rhino Sands was created as an eco-friendly safari camp in 2017 to reflect our family’s love of safari and commitment to conservation. It is designed to offer guests an intimate way to reconnect with nature and one another in classic safari style. Our team was each individually selected in large part due to their passion for safari and their love of Africa‚Äôs wild places. The team is overseen by Dale and Shannon Airton.

At Rhino Sands, we offer guests an eco-friendly safari experience in a tented camp that has been built and operates with minimal disruption to the natural forest. It has been designed sustainably, maximising airflow for natural cooling and running completely off solar-powered electricity. Offering organic coffee and teas, wines produced using biodynamic methods, seasonal menus, and biodegradable and organic amenities, the environment and our impact upon it has been considered with every decision made in running Rhino Sands.

The safari experience at Rhino Sands revolves around two daily game drives. The day begins just before sunrise with coffee around the campfire. The morning game drive departs as the sun begins to rise in the sky. Game drives all occur within the Big Five 23,000 hectare Manyoni Private Game Reserve, and tend to last 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on sightings and the distance travelled. The area is well known for its plentiful game viewing of iconic African species like lion, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and many many more. All drives are conducted by expert game rangers and take place on open safari vehicles, with no more than six people per vehicle, ensuring comfortable space and prime game-viewing ability for each guest.
