  • Lush Private Lodge

    Black Rhino Reserve, Pilanesberg National Park

    Lush private lodge owned and managed by the  Lupini family is a boutique private safari lodge, set within the Black Rhino Reserve in the greater Pilanesberg National Park and run on Italian hospitality, offering luxury accommodation, dining, and safari experiences.

    Lush is a contemporary lodge, shaped around the environment. In fact, it is a shepherd’s tree – sheltered from the wind and warmed by the morning sun, between hill and plain – that marked the position of the main lodge. Its minimalistic décor and natural finishes put the focus on the view, which at once draws you outside. With this in mind, multi-level interior-flowing-to-exterior spaces are designed for outdoor living. Spend time between safari activities reading or playing board games on the couches, sipping coffee in the bar lounge – a favourite spot to rendezvous at any time of day – or stargazing from the deck.

Access also to the public section of the park increases your chances of encountering a large variety of wildlife.

    Pilanesberg is home to over 7 000 animals, including all of the Big 5, up to 25 other mammal species, more than 350 kinds of birds, and innumerable reptile and insect species.

    Visiting Lush as a guest, you are assured a private, unique safari experience, with the rare opportunity to see the black rhino. Lush private lodge has traversing access to the whole of Pilanesberg, including the Black Rhino Game Reserve and the park’s limited-access Wilderness Area, established for the protection and breeding of this critically endangered Black Rhino, threatened by poaching.

    Conservation Initiatives

    Other successful park conservation initiatives are the Brown Hyena Project and Cheetah Project. The brown hyena is classified near threatened and is at risk due to the mistaken belief that they are harmful to livestock. The cheetah is currently classified vulnerable, though there is call for its reclassification as endangered, and is under threat from poaching, habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflict.
