The Rhino Rating System


Expert ratings from our travel team


With so many different ways of grading hotels, it is difficult to know what to expect. The Rhino Rating system gives you the verdict straight from the Rhino's mouth.
 
We make a point of personally visiting and evaluating all the lodges and hotels that we feature on the website.
 
If a place is truly awful, we won't feature it at all.
 
 

What do we look for?

We prefer to go on the overall experience and to focus on the owners and managers. If they are caring and passionate about their establishment, the rest normally follows suit.
 
We look for exceptional character, genuine friendliness, value for money, spectacular views, exciting experiences, great food, real coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, big baths, attention to detail, convenient amenities, crisp percale cotton sheets and cleanliness. The unique and the luxurious.
 
And of course we listen to the feedback from all our clients.
 
 
 
5 Rhinos = Rhinotastic! Mindbogglingly exceptional in all departments.
 
4 Rhinos = High quality accommodation and service.
 
3 Rhinos = Good value for money.

2 Rhinos = For careful budgeters... If it's the only option.

1 Rhino = A crashing disappointment. Don't worry, we won't send you there.
