Rhino Walking Safaris
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park. The concession shares a 15km unfenced boundary with the famous Mala Mala and Sabi Sand reserve with an abundance of wildlife moving freely between the two reserves. The concession is noted as an excellent game viewing area with encounters with the Big Five and where good sightings of wild animals can be expected.
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is set under magnificent Tamboti trees on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed. The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Safari Lodge is built with natural materials – stone, wood, thatch and canvas - to give it an authentic bush feel. Each of the 8 suites are beautifully decorated with the bedroom and lounge area having wonderful views of the riverbed.
Following a game drive, guests can relax in the revitalising swimming pool, take in the views from the shaded patio and watch the abundant wildlife amble down to the waterhole for a midday drink. Sumptuous meals are served in the camp’s dining area, which is set under the trees. The lounge, with its extensive wine cellar, cosy fireplace and bar, is the perfect spot for a sundowner.
For those more adventurous guests who would like to experience the bush on foot – Walking Safaris are offered from Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris) which is not only distinctive in its design – with only four East African Safari-style tents, but also in the way things are done. The manner of trail is similar to those of SANParks in that it is a proper trail with walks of up to four hours allowing one to submerse ones senses in a hands on experience. It’s not just a mid-morning stroll after breakfast.
And if the best of both world’s is not enough – there is the added attraction of an optional night spent out under the stars at the Sleepout Decks under the care of a qualified guide! We are delighted to be able to share this matchless blend of Kruger in style with our many return guests and supporters of ethical and responsible environmental tourism.
