Rhino Post Safari Lodge is situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park.
Rhino Post Safari Lodge 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 Park’s public roads for evening game drives, well after gate closing times (sunset), ensuring guests an unforgettable experience.
The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Safari Lodge was built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch and canvas to create an authentic bush ambiance. Each luxury suite is stylishly decorated and includes a spacious bedroom with impressive views of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and patio deck. 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.
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. 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.
