The Rhino Ride invites riders of all skills to come and enjoy a weekend away in one of the most magnificent landscapes our country has to offer, the Manyoni Private Game Reserve.  We encourage riders to enjoy the event as a ride as opposed to a race, allowing the riders to appreciate the views and magnificent scenery the reserve has to offer.

A total of 70km will be covered over the 2 days.

The route will follow the same course as last year’s Rhino Ride, – with the addition, due to popular demand – of a 20km chicken run on day 1. We are hoping this will tempt the not so avid riders to join in the festivities.

Day 1, 40km or 20km

The first 30km of the route is relatively easy going, but don’t be fooled the last 10kms really tests one stamina with a couple good hills! A delicious cooked breakfast sponsored & prepared by Mkuze Spar is served on route at around the 20km mark


Day1 walking

Day 2, 30km

This is the ‘easy’ day – but don’t be fooled the thick sand at the river crossing, it tests the best of us!

During the weekend not only will you be treated to breathtaking views,  magnificent Zululand scenery & the Big 5,  but you will also gain an awareness of the challenges the reserve & we all face in the fight against rhino poaching.

With your help the Zululand Rhino Reserve Foundation will use all funds raised to protect the rhino on our reserve.
