Rhino Post Safari Lodge is situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park. The concession 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.

Stilts raise the 8 spaciously appointed suites from the riverbank allowing guests to view the Mutlumuvi riverbed with ease from the bedroom, bathroom and private wooden deck. The suites are set out in an open plan style with wooden floors, thatched roofs, canvas walls and an overhead fan. Each en-suite 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 complimenting the contemporary floor. All the suites have mini-bars and telephones linked to all areas.
Built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch & canvas, 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. Careful consideration was taken in the layout of the camp, battery power is used for lighting, special indigenous Reed-bed System processes the bathroom waste, and other waste is sorted and recycled wherever possible.

The Kruger Park has strict gate closing times (before sunset) for their rest camps & access gates. We are allowed to utilise certain public roads for night/evening drives well after gate closing times. In terms of our ‘tread gently’ policy, we do not allow any off road driving, preferring to explore the wilderness on foot.
Game drives are available from Rhino Post Safari Lodge with an alternative option being a full or ½ day game drive on the Kruger public roads with a picnic lunch en-route. The full or ½ day option is by prior arrangement.
