From the warm welcome you receive upon arrival, to our comfortable chalets, hearty home style cuisine and highly experienced ranger, every guest departs with unforgettable memories and the imprint of Africa in their soul.

The lodge overlooks the perennially dry Mutlumuvi riverbed. With wooden decks built around a forest of riverine trees, shade is plentiful. Raised wooden walkways link eight thatched suites each offering their own outdoor shower and private deck. The lodge is designed with vast areas of open space, large glass doors and windows helping to bring the outside in. Wherever you are – at the pool, the bar, in the lounge, taking a bath or shower, or just relaxing in your room, we endeavour to make you feel as if you are always at one with nature.

Game drives are the predominant activity at Rhino Post Safari Lodge, you are afterall in the Kruger National Park. However, guests are offered additional activities which include chilling at the swimming pool or on the bar deck watching for animals coming to drink at the waterhole.

Kruger National Park

Over and above the much-publicised ‘Big 5’ (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino and buffalo) an impressive 147 mammal species inhabit this remarkable reserve which is a greater variety of species than in any other park in Africa. In addition, it boasts 517 bird species (including migratory birds), 49 fish, 34 amphibian, 114 reptile and over 2000 plant species (including 336 tree species and the Big Five of trees: Baobab, Fever-Tree, Knobthorn, Marula, and Mopane). All this in a conservation area that is roughly the size of Israel.

Before the Kruger Park was declared a national reserve in 1884 by President Paul Kruger, the game had been almost completely wiped out by hunters. Since then it has grown under the careful curatorship of South African National Parks (SANParks) into a world-renowned safari destination with a network of 1 800kms of well-maintained roads and more than 290 000 large animals, attracting more than 1 million visitors per year. Today the fascinating and varied Kruger Park wildlife includes everything from aardvark to zebra as well as intriguing unrelated species such as baboons and baboon spiders.

Safari activities

Rhino Post offers a truly authentic safari experience in the Kruger National Park.

  • Game Drives In addition to driving on the 12,000-hectare concession, the lodge has exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANParks has allowed them 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 respective properties.
  • Sleep-Outs Pre-book a night at the Sleep-Out decks and spend the evening under the stars sleeping in individual tents on raised platforms. You will leave Rhino Post at approximately 16h00 and be transferred via vehicle to Plains Camp. Part of the adventure is enjoying a meal cooked over an open fire whilst looking out for animals drinking at the waterhole below before curling up to sleep, lulled by nature’s nocturnal sounds.
  • Star gazing Our telescope is available for all guests and offers a magnificent view of the African skies at night and study the constellations
  • Golf Play a round of golf on Kruger Park’s unfenced golf course in Skukuza. Enjoy sightings of hippos and crocodiles, while pitting your wits against both the nine-hole (18 tee box) course and the baboons, impala and warthog that roam the fairways.
  • In-room massage therapy Whether you need to de-stress with an Anti-Stress Massage, recover flexibility with a Deep Tissue Massage, or just pamper yourself with a Tribal African Wrap, our professional spa treatments take place in the privacy of your room. In-room spa therapies are available between 06h30 and 13h30 daily. Please book at least 24 hours in advance to avoid disappointment.

Making a difference

Andlane Beauty World. At the time of meeting with Elizabeth Andlane, who had started a small community project, Andlane Beauty World, they were producing floor polish and cleaning materials and their recorded monthly income was R65; they were running at a major loss. Rhino Post Safari Lodge was not able to purchase the cleaning materials as we use strictly environmentally friendly products but suggested that they add environmentally friendly guest soaps to their range of products and together with the management of Jock Safari Lodge taught them to make soaps, with Rhino Walking Safaris providing equipment, ingredients and basic bookkeeping training. This quickly increased their turnover and put them in a position to service their bank loans and provide Rhino Post Safari Lodge and other lodges with their lovely handmade Rooibos Tea and Honey glycerine soaps.

Transport Projects: As a contribution to the local community in and around the Kruger National Park, we assisted a local in setting up his own taxi business. Originally contracted to transport our staff we assisted in paying off the vehicle he was using and after we had it serviced we gifted it to him, together with R10 000 to assist in setting up his own business outside of the Kruger Park. We currently support additional local community members by paying them to transport our staff to work and back.

Magazines for Schools. All the latest magazines which we subscribe to for our guests’ pleasure are bundled up regularly and handed out to the staff who have children at school in the local communities so that they can be used as teaching resources.
