Rhino Lodge is situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, a massive man-made lake formed by the damming of the mighty Zambezi River in the late 1950s. It is also situated within the Matusadona National Park, a remote wilderness area which has been designated as an Intensive Protection Zone for a small but successful population of the endangered black rhino.

The remoteness of this protected area, together with the plentiful water supply provided by the lake, combine to make the Matusadona home to a wide variety of wild animals. The Big 5 are all found here as well as hippo and crocodile and a wide variety of water birds make use of the lake. Kudu, warthog, zebra, bush buck, impala, and numerous antelope species as well as over 350 documented bird species are also here.

Rhino Safari Camp is small and highly personalized, staffed by people who are passionate about their land, their environment and the wild animals in it. We are here to offer you comfortable spacious accommodation with outstanding views, a superbly comfortable night’s sleep, loads of hot shower water, freshly prepared home-style meals, game-viewing activities that get you up close and personal, followed by a cool drink by the fire at the end of the day and an unforgettable meal beneath the canopy of the night sky. All in uncontrived natural surroundings in one of Africa’s few remaining wilderness areas.

Rhino Safari Camp offers a balance between the mobile tented camp and the ultimately luxurious permanent camps. We do not have electricity and live with what nature provides, with a few added extras. We recharge batteries with solar panels, use petrol-driven pumps for water, refrigerate and cook with gas, heat water in wood-fired boilers, and light the camp at night with paraffin lamps, candles, and the flickering light of the camp fire.

At the entrance to the camp is the main boma, the central area where we meet, eat and relax. This spacious platform is completely open at the sides allowing the breeze from the lake to cool the interior. We use both upstairs and downstairs sections for dining and relaxation. Downstairs is a discreet bar and buffet area with a dining area and camp seating area, while upstairs is a comfortable living area and alternative dining area with magnificent views of the lake and the animals as they wander along the shoreline.

We also have a small but practical selection of reference books and reading material on offer, and a selection of traditional games to keep you occupied. Tea, coffee and other beverages are available to guests throughout the day in the boma, and all meals are freshly prepared at camp, with maximum nutritional benefit in mind.

Everyone at Rhino Safari Camp is there to ensure that your stay is an enjoyable as possible. With the spirit of Africa, our staff are unobtrusive and friendly in their interest and concern for their guests.

Tailormade Safaris- Matusadonha offers mobile tented accommodation for a minimum of two guests to a maximum of 12 guests. Tailormade Safaris is a small owner-run company that prides itself on Tented Adventures that create tailor-made, once-in-a-lifetime experiences for our guests.

Matusadonha National Park is located on the shores of Lake Kariba. This park boasts some of the best walking areas in Southern Africa and with very good chances of tracking elephants, lion and the endangered Black rhino.

Spending a lot of time on foot, guests have the opportunity of enjoying this highly thrilling experience of tracking wildlife in an area with the Big 5. On our Tented Adventures along the shores of Lake Kariba, we have a boat in order to be able to enjoy wildlife coming to drink surrounded by dead trees that stand like friendly ghosts characterising the Matusadonha shoreline scenery.

Accommodation at our tented camp in Matusadonha is in 3 x 3 m dome tents, with en-suite shower and toilet. Our beds are wide and comfortable because most of our guests come for extended periods of time to the bush. For example, it is not unusual for our safaris to remain up to eight or ten nights, at one or two locations.

Camp is lit at night by paraffin lanterns. Food is cooked in camp over a campfire and fresh bread baked. Meat, fruit and vegetables are supplied fresh from reliable suppliers and stored in a refrigerator and when required ,the camp will be resupplied during the safari.

Mineral water is supplied for drinking and when ice is available, it is made from safe filtered water. To round up the experience, we also believe in good food and good wines when guests finally come back to camp after having followed an elephant bull for several hours on foot or a pack of wild dogs hunting.

As a way to ensure continuity in interpretation of the wildlife experience and natural surroundings on guests’ journey, we offer the services of private professional guides on safari. Working together with the local guides, camp management and staff, a private guide will make sure that all guests’ needs are met and special interests pursued as far as possible.

Our latest development at Tailormade Safaris is the introduction of tours and transfers around Zimbabwe. We have introduced a small fleet of vehicles that can carry from two to 15 guests for access around all cities in the country and the remote bush locations. All our transfer vehicles have internal air-conditioning and a trailer for luggage, leaving our guests with a bit more spacious comfort.
