More about this accommodation
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is just 20 minutes from Skukuza, the main rest camp, in the heart of the world-famous Kruger National Park. The concession shares a 15 km unfenced boundary with the Sabi Sand Game reserve and an abundance of wildlife moves freely between the two reserves. Set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed, the lodge enjoys its own exclusive traversing area of 12 000 hectares, as well as the use of the Kruger Park's roads for game drives.
Low Impact, Environmentally-Friendly Luxury Lodge
The utmost care was taken to minimize the environmental impact of the lodge - no trees were cut down and no concrete was used in constructing the buildings. Stilts raise the spaciously-appointed suites above the riverbank, allowing sweeping views out across the Mutlumuvi Riverbed. Each luxury suite is laid out in an open-plan style with wooden floors, thatched roof, canvas walls and ceiling fans. The modern en-suite bathrooms have a deep free-standing bath, double vanities and separate toilet. There's also a private outdoor shower screened by thick reed poles and own private decked patio.
Good Food, Fine Wine and Great Game Viewing
Enjoy sumptuous meals in the camp's dining area, set under magnificent Tamboti trees. The lounge has an extensive wine cellar, bar and cosy fireplace. After a game drive, you can cool down in the swimming pool or relax on the shady patio and watch an abundant array of wildlife coming down to drink at the waterhole.
Part of Rhino Walking Safaris Group - choice of game viewing options
Rhino Post is one of three camps operated by Rhino Walking Safaris and is often used in conjunction with Plains Camp. Rhino Walking Safaris specialises in game walks and gives guests the opportunity to experience animals in their natural environment, in real-life close up; always accompanied by an armed, experienced ranger. These operators also have exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park's public roads for evening game drives. You'll be spoilt for choice with a combination of game viewing: from multi-day walks to game drives to primitive sleep-outs on raised wooden platforms in the wild.
Rhino Post is easy to get to by road or by air. From Johannesburg, it's a 6 hour drive.
