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 where good sightings of wild animals can be expected.
1. Natural Surroundings and Sociable Atmosphere
Rhino Post Safari Lodge is not just a beautiful, and contemporary design built from canvas, wood and glass – it blends into the natural surrounds with no sculpted gardens or fences. The ambience is relaxed and friendly. Guests join their guides and management around the dinner table in the sociable atmosphere of the Kruger Camps, while enjoying the level of service and luxury expected from any upmarket game lodge.
2. Drives in the Kruger Park After Dark
The exclusivity of a sixteen bed lodge, and outstanding service combines beautifully with the full Kruger Park experience.
4. Additional exciting experiences including the option to pre-book additional nights at our Trails Camp or Sleepout Decks
And if the best of both world’s is not enough – there is the added attraction of an optional night spent out under the stars at the Sleepout Decks under the care of a qualified guide! We are delighted to be able to share this matchless blend of Kruger in style with our many return guests and supporters of ethical and responsible environmental tourism.
5. Reasonable Rates and Bar Prices
Zoned wilderness areas are very few and far between. The most important factor is that they are not developed with road networks and have no off road driving – making them completely wild and unspoilt – a pristine wilderness area may not even have an aircraft fly over it; we are however a primitive wilderness area which allows for only very well managed and supervised recreational use and very strict conservation ethics. The animals in these areas are not habituated and there is no damage to nature. These areas are zoned in such a way either because they are fragile environments, contain rare species or simply because they are good grazing areas for game and so are the obvious choice to protect biodiversity for future generations. In our case it’s all three. It’s an excellent game grazing area, has sodic patches which make it fragile in terms of erosion, and have all of the following rare species seen intermittently:
We are able to drive on the boundaries of the concession, as well as one road that bisects the concession. All other driving takes place on Kruger Roads with a road network of 170km that we may use even after hours. This gives us the advantage of having a much wider area to traverse as we are not confined to the concession area at night, and even the opportunity to revisit kill sites where predators are feeding after hours when the public are back in their camps.
