Rhino Post Safari Lodge (Northern Kruger National Park, Limpopo Province) South Africa

 
 
 
Location:

Rhino Post Camp is a 16-bed lodge, set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed, in a 12,000 ha private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park. This unique wilderness area offers Eco tourists the ideal place for encounters with the Big Five and allows visitors to track elephant and rhino on foot or view them from the comfort of open safari vehicles.

The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Camp was built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch and canvas to create an authentic bush ambience. Each luxury suite is exquisitely decorated and includes bedroom and lounge with impressive views of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and decked patio.

 
 
 
 
Accommodation:

Accommodation at Rhino Post has been built to impose a minimum impact on the surrounding environment, cresting the tops of hefty stilts. Luxury suites are finished with living rooms, spectacular views of the nearby riverbed, el fresco shower facilities, and affixed decks.

Rhino Post’s “base” lodge is a luxurious collection of wooden buildings, styled in colonial bush opulence. Guests can base themselves at the 16 bed luxury Rhino Post Safari Lodge, or travel to Plain’s Camp for walking safaris – or even spend a night sleeping out under the stars. Staying at Rhino Post means you get access to the Kruger Park’s roads even after the gates have shut for the night.

 

 

•Luxury suites built of stone, wood, thatch and canvas, and using environmentally-friendly water and waste recycling systems
•Spacious suites, all on their own stilts and raised above the riverbank
•Each suite has its own shaded patio
•Indoor showers, plus an outdoor shower protected by reed curtains
•All suites look out onto the river, which is frequently visited by game

 
 
 
Facilities:

• Swimming pool
• Patio/lounger area
• Bar
• Restaurant
• Lounge with fireplace
• Wine cellar

 

Following a walking safari or game drive, guests can relax in the revitalizing swimming pool, take in the views from the 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, cozy fireplace and bar, is the perfect spot for a sundowner. For something special, spoil yourself with a little pampering in the rejuvenation centre.

In the spirit of wilderness areas worldwide, Rhino Post Camp has been specially designed and built to have minimal impact on the environment. Few permanent structures were used in the construction of this magnificent camp. Low energy lighting, solar assisted power production, natural materials, raised walkways and bedrooms are but some of the low impact measures we have taken.


 

Activities / Walking Safaris:

Rhino Walking Safaris lets you discover nature’s hidden wonders in specially tailored walking trails through a 12,000 ha 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 and good sightings can be expected.

Rhino Walking Safaris also has 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. Highly qualified guides share their wealth of bush knowledge with you – from the identification of animals, trees, grasses, insects and birds to the medicinal uses of plants, folklore and basic tracking and survival skills.

 

 
Plains Camp:

In keeping with the ethics of Rhino Walking Safaris "tread lightly on the land", no trees were cut down in the construction of this lodge. No concrete was used, all structures are made of canvas and wood. This lodge was specifically designed for low energy consumption and makes use of generators for its power needs.

Plains Camp (PC) is where our walking safaris take place. It consists of 4 luxury furnished tents with en suite facilities, hot running water and all the comforts of home. When making use of the Plains Camp, guests have the opportunity to go on Game Walks. You will follow rhino trails and elephant paths for approximately 3 to 4 hours exploring, riverine forests, river beds, open plains and African Savannah. The duration of the walk is dependent on the fitness and wishes of the group.

The camp is in the middle of a 12,000 ha private wilderness concession, where it seems the rest of the world no longer exists, and guests are ensured of superb game sightings.

There are several trails available, all of which cater for every possibility; be it one camp, two camps or all three.

Some of the suggested trails are:

• 5 night trail
* 2 nights at Rhino Post Safari Lodge

The Walking

Our walking trails are limited to eight guests who are guided by two armed rangers. Our guides meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualification possible in South Africa.

After an introductory brief on the “do’s” and “don’ts” of bush walking safaris, the guide will structure the trail taking into account the fitness level of the group and any special requests. Departures are before breakfast and again in the late afternoon to avoid the midday heat, with the average walk being between three and four hours. Walks may be lengthened or shortened depending on the group’s desires and fitness levels.

Our guides will share their wealth of bush culture, the identification of animals, trees, grasses, insects, birds and the medicinal uses of plants, local folklore and basic tracking and survival skills. Nothing is predictable in the bush, therefore each safari offers a potentially new experience.

 

 

A Typical Trail

A typical trail may start at Rhino Post Safari Lodge where guests enjoy morning and evening game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles. On the day of departure from this lodge, just after mid morning breakfast, guests will be transferred to their tented accommodation at Plains Camp.

The heat of the day will be spent at this camp enjoying our small Africana book collection, or the plunge pool overlooking the Timbetene Plain and waterhole, which is often host to zebra, buffalo, giraffe, elephant, rhino and lion. High tea is followed by an afternoon walk and sundowners and then back to the camp for a hearty dinner. The following day after an early morning wake-up and an invigorating cup of fresh coffee (or tea) in the lounge, guests set off on trail where our guides will share their experience of the diverse areas situated within the proximity of Plains Camp.

For something completely different and a totally unrivalled wilderness experience, guests are able to walk from Plains Camp to our Sleepouts. These are 4m high elevated wooden platforms with tents on the top level where guests will be able to literally sleep out under the stars! This is the only place in the Kruger National Park offering this unusual accommodation.

Important notes

As per notes for Plains Camp and Sleepout, please be advised:

1) Scheduled departure days for Plains Camp

• Arrive Tuesday for a 2/3 night stay
• Arrive Friday for a 2 night stay
• Arrive Sunday for a 2 night stay

2) Sleepouts are highly dependent on weather conditions. PLEASE be aware that should the weather be unfavorable on the day of the Sleep Out (heavy rain) or if there has been heavy rain in the days preceding the Sleep Out, you may have to remain at Plains Camp (due to the platforms being inaccessible).

Plains Camp strives to keep guests together during their trail, without the inconvenience of different guests arriving and departing throughout their stay. With this in mind, if the first guests to reserve their trail at Plains Camp request the Sleep Out, then all subsequent reservations will be required to participate. Should all guests not wish to participate in the Sleep Outs; there will be no Sleep Out for the duration of the trail.
