We had the most amazing day at Rain Farm Game & Lodge. I never realized we had such magnificent beauty a stone throw away from our home. Our ranger was extremely knowledgeable and super friendly. The picnic that followed by the lake was awesome. Next time, we're going to book a cottage and stay all weekend :)

Was part of a party of 26 for breakfast for which they had almost a week to plan for.
Unfortunately poor planning from their kitchen resulted in quite a few of the group being disappointed with their meal. The general consensus was good venue but service not worth mentioning. Definitely not worth the money.

I was their on Saturday 25th just for a morning visit. Staff extremely assisting and friendly. Unfortunately due to me having to go to work that nite I could not do a game drive. However I was able to see a few of their amazeing animals and breathtaking views on their deck. While I enjoyed breakfast. The establishment is very beautiful with the coolest looking chapel I've ever seen.

We went to rain farm for a picnic. Food was average, kind of "mass produced" and very boring presentation. Picnic spot was nice. Just be careful of ticks on picnic blankets. Saw a crocodile in the dam. The emu tried to rob our food but was easily chased off. Fellow picnic-ers put loud music on, this should be prohibited.

We had an Easter lunch there. Sure won't visit again. Below average food, no music (despite being told they will turn it on). Bad service and definitely not worth the money paid. We passed a lot of places to get to the rain farm and we're regretting it.

Drove all the way from pretoria to see what all the hype is about and a birthday. The view and buidling is beautiful. The food is horrible paid R250 for a buffet food is tastless no meat only fat served the rossoto is bland and dull. The mens toilet is very dirty toilet paper in the floor by the toilets. I would not recomend this place to ANYONE. If you do stay here order pizza!

My visit to the Rain Farm was extraordinary. We enjoyed a fun-filled Game Range Drive, followed by a lovely romantic picnic. This is definitely a place to enjoy the beautiful gifts nature has to offer. The staff are friendly, accommodating, and provided excellent services. I would definitely recommend The Rain Farm to anyone who wishes to enjoy a good time out, and experience the beauty of the animals in their natural habitat.

I love outdoors so I accepted a "luxurious" stilted tent accomodation only to find out that with all doors closed and mosquito net undone, there were still more bugs on my bed than outside. Spent a few hours and left same day as check in. Risked a drive at night coz I felt it was safer than staying there.

Absolutely lovely place to just relax and unwind. My son and I just spent Christmas weekend. Food, service and staff are excellent… just ate way too much of the delicious food (LOL)! Loved the Luxury Tent on stilts accommodation. Beautiful walk down to the river and my son had a great time at the shooting range! We will definitely be back and come for day visits more often… so nice and conveniently close to Durban and surrounds, yet it feels like you are miles away in the country! Excellent! Loved it!

Very disappointing. 1. Everyone got lost on their way to the venue and when we eventually arrived we were told that their website had been "hacked". When did they find this out — if they were aware of this why did they not send us the correct directions. 2. Our mid-morning tea was left outside to dry out — we were in a meeting an no-one let us know that our tea was ready. 2. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and did not expect a "bar lunch" i. E. A choice of either beef, chicken or vegetable hamburger. It was a very embarrassing experience as we invited guests to join us for the celebration and some had come from as far as Johannesburg and Estcourt. 3. It was not the most friendly and comfortable environment and I would definitely not recommend this venue to anyone.
