Khama Rhino Sanctuary was the first self-drive safari on our 2-week trip to Botswana. We enjoyed spotting the animals - rhinos, giraffes, antelopes, warthogs and birds. The only downside was that we had hoped we could hire a guide on the spot to accompany us in our car, but were told there was nobody there who could do so in spite of ten or so staff members sitting by the entrance two hours before closing time. ;) We did love the experience though, the landscape and the wildlife viewing were great.

We stayed in a family chalet. The chalets are horrible. Very dirty, drafty, and no cutlery or towels. Linen is provided, but due to the cold we slept in our own sleeping bags. In addition, for the 3 of us, we had to pay Pula400 as a conservation fee when entering the rhino sanctuary. In my view, it’s not worth it and should be avoided at all costs.

The camp sites have no electrical points or dish washing facilities. Ablution very far from the camp site number 2. Ablution was clean, however vary small and crammed.
Location is good, reserve is good, but it needs better facilities.

Friendly and efficient staff at the reception. They have a restaurant at the reception. We camped in D1 and D2 . Campsite 9 is close to ablution block. The ablation was clean and had hot water. No electric points at campsite.

3rd time staying at Rhino, as it’s ideally located between the border and the Delta.
The chalets are falling apart and in need of a refurbishment.
The ‘restaurant’ never has the full availability of the menu and cooking is slow and not that good.

Still a good opportunity to see game and the park is well tendered.

After so many years of being a regular Khama Rhino visitor, thought I'd finally share my over the years experience.

Normally I do self drives with friends usually on the way to my hometown (Palapye). The staff is always sweet (bring your I.D). Locating the animals is always so easy though at times the Rhinos and Giraffes are difficult to find 🤦. But overall the drive around the sanctuary seeing all the animals is super refreshing.

I've spent a night in one of their A-line chalets before. The rooms were clean, I wasn't really impressed with the cleanliness of the floor of the outdoor shower, the toilet was sorta okay.

As for the toilets in the sanctuary itself for public use during drives, they are not really well monitored but they are okay-ish.

Enjoyed the self game drive, although the morning was hot we easily spotted animals seeking shelter from the sun in some shady tree areas. We were fortunate to spot an abundance of Rhino as well as Zebra, Giraffe, Impala, Waterbuck and various BirdLife. You need an AWD or 4X4 to self drive the sandy roads or book a drive with a guide at reception area. Ring your ID as they will need it to make copies when registering you. Only thing we spotted that needed attention was the Toilets! Urinals we’re flooded and so was the wash basin. Hopefully that gets sorted out quick.

the Sanctuary is not one of the top attractions in Botswana, All is about the Okavango....yet it is worth going to. There is a little gift shops where good stuff costs 1/2 than in Gaborone. And the guides are knowledgeable and clearly familiar with the habits of the animals.
The rhinos are superb and...a bit scary...what if they don't like us? They are big!!!!But they look at you through those small eyes...judge you are not a threat and go back to lie down under the shade of a tree. One can take loads of photos of these big, white creatures. Then there are smaller ones, antelopes, with their swirling horns, and the tall necked giraffes, who look a bit scared...even though they should be accustomed to the inquisitive eyes of people. There is plenty of time to look at the wildlife. What one does not see here is elephant and hippos...but elephants may cross the road at any time in Botswana and hippos are in the Okavango delta. Rhinos are a bit different, with that big heavy head...I wondered about what they think.
WE spent much time simply staring at a rhino family. And as much as I love penguins, I realized that there is something unique in this part of Africa. There are mysterious animals and there is the connection to the ancestral world whence humans came out from

Spacious campsites with big trees. Good ablution facilities with hot water. Lovely bird hide and rhino's on the pans. Restaurant is a bit of a let down.
