Rain Farm

“The rooms are well appointed and very clean. Everything works. The game drive was superb – Peter our ranger was very passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife. The lodge itself was great especially as we were able to watch the Springboks win the world cup on the big screen TV in the pub on Saturday. The only downside we had was that we had a resident bat in our room that came out at night while we trying to sleep. Lawrence was extremely accommodating here and put us up in another room. They promised to address the issue and remove the bat.”

Serene Getaway

Serene Getaway
“An amazing place to visit for a getaway from the city rush.
The staff were super friendly and welcoming and the meals were delicious and affordable.
The game drive was wonderful, as we saw all of the animals on the farm and the guide was incredibly knowledgeable on the animals and made the drive much more fun.
The Hartebeest unit was neat and tidy, however the metal roof of the unit was a little noisy at night from all the things falling on it.

Wonderful experience, I would definitely be visiting again.”

We went for the full package, dinner, bed and breakfast in the giraffe room with private swimming pool, game drive and picnic and luxury turndown. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and highly recommend Rain Farm.”

Absolutely stunning views

Absolutely stunning views
“I visited from Florida USA. Very nice place to stay. Its under 100 US dollars a night and a typical African safari costs around 200 dollars. So for under 100 dollars you can sleep on a game reserve with wifi internet, and walk safely unguided and see wild giraffe, impala, zebra, wild a beast, wart hogs, etc. Pretty far from civilization but safe with 24/7 security and worth staying at least 1 or 2 nights.”

Why have I not found this place before now?

Why have I not found this place before now? !!!!
“What a fantastic place. 15 minutes of an easy drive out of Ballito. Stunning in every way. Rustic feel with 5 star service. Friendly and attentive staff who went out of their way to make us feel very special. A game drive with snacks was actually a fantastic informative experience with a wonderful table full of cold meats/cheeses;crackers;fruits and wine or other drinks when we returned to the lodge. Total surprise and we felt very spoilt.
Our lodge, Giraffe, was beautiful and we had zebra; kudu bull and giraffe all right outside our front door in the morning.
I cant recommend this place highly enough and I will definitely be going back. Cant wait to try the treetop tents next time.
Thank you so much Rain Farm.”

an amazing experience

“What an amazing experience we had with my friends in Rain Farm game and Lodge, The place is beautiful, peaceful and clean. The beautiful view of the animals and such a friendly and welcoming staff they have. Looking forward to visiting the place again.”

We have never been to Rain Farm Lodge and always saw events and pictures on our Facebook pages, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary and also we would be celebrating being together for 12 years so we were looking for a special place to celebrate. We loved every minute of it, from the friendly staff to the friendly guests, the amazing food at the restaurant. We went on 2 game drives and a trailed and we encountered animals on all these occasions, we learnt about the animals and plants around us and also about the history of Rain Farm lodge by our trusty guide Jason. We stayed in the Zebra accommodation and were blown away at how stunning this room was, if you want to cater for your self or dine at the restaurant Rain Farm Lodge caters for this. The pictures of this beautiful lodge really doesn’t do this place justice and we will definitely be coming back again. If you are staying in there beautiful accommodation or simply visiting for the day you wont be sorry as they have activities to keep the family busy, even if you just want a quite break to take in nature and have some peace and quite this is the place.
Thank you once again for the friendly hospitality and a special thank you to Jason, Rob, Jo and Natasha for being extra welcoming.
