Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers early morning and evening safari drives. Safari drives are conducted in specially adapted open Landcruisers, with professional guides. To preserve our wilderness concession, no off-roading is practiced.
In addition to driving on our 12,000 hectare concession, we have exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANparks has allowed us 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 own property.
A typical day would include an early start, a cup of fresh coffee or tea, after which guests set out on their safari drive. Guides at the lodge meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African wilderness are exciting, informative and safe.
In the late afternoon after a delicious high tea, you can enjoy an evening safari drive, winding down with sundowners, watching an African sunset and spotting nocturnal animals in the Park.
One can also combine your experience at Rhino Post Safari Lodge with a stay at Rhino Walking Safaris - our exclusive, tented camp offering an unforgettable guided walking experience, and even a night under the stars at the Sleepout Decks. These must however be pre-booked prior to arrival.
Pre-book a night at the Sleepout decks. You will leave Rhino Post at approximately 16h00 to drive into the wilderness concession and spend the night under the stars on raised platforms. Enjoy a meal cooked over an open fire and look out for animals drinking at the waterhole below before curling up sleep, lulled by nature’s night sounds.
Golf in Skukuza
Play a round of golf on the Kruger Park’s unfenced golf course. Enjoy sightings of hippos and crocodiles, while pitting your wits against both the 9 hole (18 tee box) course and the baboons, impalas and warthogs that roam the fairways.
Tailor Made Birding Safaris
Pre-book a private vehicle and guide to spend time recording and photographing as many of the Kruger Park’s 529 species of birds that you can. Your guide will tailor the drives to your specifications, with focus on birds, bird identification, and time spent in different habitats to maximize your experience.
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 own room. In-room spa therapies are available on pre-booking between 06h30 and 13h30 daily. Please book at least 24 hours in advance to avoid disappointment and confirm your treatment by 16h00 the day before

FIVE GOOD REASONS TO BOOK AT RHINO POST SAFARI LODGE
Rhino Post Safari Lodge has been offering a chic alternative to the traditional park visit with exciting extra options thrown in, for thirteen years now. And what a fabulous thirteen years it has been! We have been nominated for and received awards, and developed a following of regular guests and friends that we look forward to seeing at least once a year. Some guests on their first visit are surprised by the ways in which we differ from both the standard Kruger Park experience and the trendy private lodge experience. Ninety five percent of them love it and keep us really busy with referrals and repeat visits, and five percent of them don’t understand the differences. So here’s how we’re different, and why… READ MORE »
