Highlights of Rhino Post Safari Lodge
- Eco-friendly lodge
- Ideal to combine with walking safaris at Plains Camp
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi riverbed, within a 12,000 hectare private concession in the Kruger National Park. This unique wilderness area offers the ideal place for encounters with the Big Five from the comfort of open safari vehicles.
Approximately 10km north-east of Skukuza, this private concession shares a 15km boundary with Mala Mala in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, with game moving freely between the two reserves. Rhino Post Safari Lodge focuses solely on game drives whilst its sister lodge, Rhino Post Plains Camp, focuses on walking safaris. Often people combine a couple of nights at Rhino Post Safari Lodge before continuing to Plains Camp for a 2 or 3 night walking safari.
Each of the eight luxury suites has an impressive view of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and private deck. The suites are set out in an open plan style with wooden floors, thatched roofs, canvas walls, minibar, telephone and overhead fan. The stylish bathroom has a freestanding bath, under a window which can be fully opened to provide a semi-al fresco experience, as well as twin basins, separate toilet and outdoor shower. The main lodge, with its extensive wine cellar, cosy fireplace and bar is the perfect spot for a sundowner overlooking the waterhole in the dry river bed. For something special, spoil yourself with a little pampering in the rejuvenation centre or enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool.
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 ambience. The utmost care was taken to minimise the environmental impact of the lodge, and to that end, no concrete was used in the building’s foundations. Battery power is used for lighting and a special indigenous Reedbed System processes the bathroom waste, and other waste is sorted and recycled wherever possible.
A Day at Rhino Post Safari Lodge
A typical day at Rhino Post Safari Lodge would include an early start with a cup of coffee or tea, after which you set out on a game drive. Returning to the lodge you enjoy a leisurely brunch and time to relax around the pool and watch the abundant wildlife amble down to the waterhole. In the late afternoon after a delicious high tea, you enjoy an evening game drive, winding down with sundowners, watching an African sunset and spotting nocturnal animals in the park. Afterwards sumptuous meals are served in the camp’s dining area, which is set under magnificent Tamboti trees.
