Rhino Post Safari Lodge is set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed, in a 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park - an excellent game viewing area where regular encounters with the Big Five occur. The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Safari Lodge was built using just stone, canvas, wood and glass to create an authentic bush ambience and to blend into the natural surrounds.
Game drives make the most of the wide network of Kruger Park roads to explore the incredible biodiversity that makes Kruger a world icon, and continue after dark when the self-drive tourists have departed. No off-road driving is allowed on game drives - both out of respect for nature and its long term sustainability and because in the Kruger Park it's just not necessary! The most popular and regularly used routes in the Kruger National Park are tarred as it is a major attraction worldwide and it is necessary to keep the roads in good condition both to handle the amount of daytime traffic experienced in busy seasons, as well as to ensure that the Park can remain accessible even through the rainy season. Animals tend to take advantage of the smooth, warm roads, which also see more game in the winter months because these roads are situated close to the rivers.
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 sundowners.
Each of the 8 comtemporary bush suites are built on raised stilts with large glass windows overlooking the riverbed. Each suite has a private viewing deck and the bathroom includes a deep freestanding bath as well as an outdoor shower.
In addition, guests can experience sleepouts from Rhino Post Safari Lodge. Guests are transported by safari vehicle to the sleepout platforms, accompanied by a guide. Sundowners can be enjoyed on the platforms overlooking a waterhole, while your guide prepares dinner over an open fire.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.

Rhino Post and Plains Camp were super. They do the little things that make it special. We'd go back again. At Rhino there was a bottle of sparkling in our room on arrival, hot water bottles in the beds, quiet game drives and just the two of us on the first one, great wine cellar and the walks and guides were fantastic.
Travel Butlers itself was superb! We learned that you requested certain rooms for us and everything was arranged flawlessly and at a great price. We would certainly call on Natasha again and recommend the company to friends and family.
