Rhino Post Safari Lodge is situated on a 12,000h private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park which shares a 15km unfenced boundary with the famous Mala Mala and Sabi Sand reserve. An abundance of wildlife moves freely between the two reserves.
The concession is noted as an excellent game viewing area including the 'big five'.
Set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi riverbed, Rhino Post Safari Lodge is an elegant 16 bed lodge. Twice daily game drives from the lodge are offered.
As well as making use of private concession roads, the lodge has exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park’s public roads for evening game drives, well after gate closing times (sunset).
The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures. Rhino Post Safari Lodge was built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch and canvas to create an authentic bush ambience.
Each luxury suite is exquisitely decorated and includes a spacious bedroom with impressive views of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and decked patio.
Stilts raise the spaciously appointed suites from the riverbank, allowing guests to view the Mutlumuvi riverbed with ease from the bedroom, bathroom and private viewing deck. The suites are set in an open plan style with wooden floors, thatched roofs, canvas walls and a ceiling fan.
Each ensuite bathroom includes a deep, freestanding bath, “his” and “hers” basins, a separate toilet and an outdoor shower protected by thick reed poles. The bathroom floor is attractively decorated with delicate mosaic designs.
Following a game drive, guests can relax in the revitalising swimming pool, take in the views from their shaded patio and watch the abundant wildlife amble down to the waterhole.
Sumptuous meals are served in the camp’s dining area, which is set under magnificent Tamboti trees. The lounge, with its extensive wine cellar, cosy fireplace and bar, is the perfect spot for a sundowner.
The utmost care was taken to minimize the environmental impact of the lodge and to that end, no concrete was used in the buildings. Careful consideration was taken in the layout of the lodge, walkways are raised, battery power is used for lighting, a special indigenous Reedbed system processes the bathroom water and other waste is sorted and recycled wherever possible.
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.
Rhino Post Safari Lodge also offers golfers outings to Skukuza Golf course – The Kruger National Park has a unique 9-hole golf course (18 tees) near Skukuza Rest Camp. Built in 1972, the course is unfenced and open to the reserve for a wild round of golf. Prior arrangements are necessary.
To ensure a varying and complete concession experience, we suggest that guests participate in a trail that encompasses Rhino Post Safari Lodge (game drives), Plains Camp (primarily walking) and our Sleepouts, as each type of accommodation and activity is different from the other.
