TraceyCampbell - December 12, 2007

We have just revamped the Garden Route section on our website, to hopefully make it more ‘user friendly’. 

 We now include more general information about what there is to see and do, including a comprehensive guide to family fun, golf courses and beaches, as well as the ability to search on accommodation in the major towns (Knysna, Plett, Wilderness, Tsitsikamma). 

We have also included a short section on the scenic Route 62, which is the alternative way of driving to / from Cape Town to this popular tourist destination.

Rhino Walking Safaris In Kruger

Paul Campbell - December 11, 2007

Rhino Plains CampWe have recently updated the information for the Rhino Walking Safaris concession in the southern part of the Kruger Park (access via Paul Kruger Gate).

Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers fully inclusive rates including accommodation, meals, teas & coffees and game drives with optional safari walks also offered.

Rhino Plains Camp rates are fully inclusive of accommodation, meals, cold drinks, house wine and beers, teas & coffees and safari activities (primarily walking safaris).

The lodges are both in a very game rich part of the park, and most guests choose to split their stay between the two camps as this gives the best mixture of game drives from Rhino Post Camp (where you will get to see more of the reserve and have the chance to get closer to preditors which cannot be approched on foot) and walking safaris from Rhino Plains Camp (tracking Rhinos on foot is an unforgettable experience).
