Amenities & Facilities
Rhino Post Safari Lodge
The lodge is situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park.
This private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park 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 good sightings can be expected.
Set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi riverbed is our luxurious trails base lodge. From here guests can travel to Plains Camp for walking safaris, as well as overnighting under the stars at our unique Sleepouts. Rhino Post Safari Lodge is an elegant 16 bed lodge from where we embark on our twice daily game drives. As well as making use of our private concession roads we have exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Parks public roads for evening game drives, well after gate closing times (sunset), ensuring guests an unforgettable experience.
Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers both early morning and evening games drives. Game drive safaris are conducted in specially adapted open Landcruisers, with professional guides. To preserve our wilderness concession, no off-roading is practiced.
In addition to driving on our 12,000 hectare concession, we have exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANparks has allowed us the added advantage of being able to utilise 170km of Park roads after gate closing time - when all the self drive tourists have left and when the other concessions have to be back on their own property.
A typical day would include an early start, a cup of fresh coffee or tea, after which guests set out on their game drive. Guides at the lodge meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African wilderness are exciting, informative and safe.
In the late afternoon after a delicious high tea, you can enjoy an evening game drive, winding down with Sundowners, watching an African sunset and spotting nocturnal animals in the Park.
Sleep outs - Unrivalled wilderness experience
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is unique in offering this unrivalled overnight bush experience in the heart of the Kruger Park.
All Sleep Outs must be arranged during the reservation process. Sleep Outs can be enjoyed from Rhino Post, however if less than 4 people are attending a surcharge is applicable.
When embarking on a Sleep Out from Rhino Post you will depart on your afternoon drive after high tea and eventually before the sun sets you will arrive at the Sleep Outs. After being orientated around the structure you will choose your platforms and the guide will light a cooking fire.
The Sleep Out platforms overlook a waterhole where you will enjoy the Sunset whilst sipping a refreshing sundowner While your guide prepares a traditional South African braai on an open fire, you can relax and enjoy the sounds and senses of the African Bush as night settles..
After dinner you will retire to your individual platform and enjoy sleeping under the star studded sky – your experience heightened as you share the wilderness at night, while safely guarded by our observant guides.
The rumble of the elephant passing by or the roar of the lion at the nearby waterhole, are the only noises that might disturb guests in this peaceful wilderness. The following morning, guests will enjoy a light snack after which they will depart back to Rhino Post for a hearty brunch.
The Sleep Outs are highly dependent on weather conditions. PLEASE be aware that should the weather be unfavourable on the day of the Sleep Out (heavy rain) or if there has been heavy rain in the days preceding the Sleep Out, guests may have to remain at Rhino Post due to the platforms being inaccessible.
