The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Safari Lodge was built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch and canvas to create an authentic bush ambience. Each luxury suite is stylishly decorated and includes a spacious bedroom with impressive views of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and patio deck.
Stilts raise the spaciously appointed suites from the riverbank, allowing guests to view the Mutlumuvi riverbed with ease from the bedroom, bathroom and private viewing deck. The suites are set in an open plan style with wooden floors, thatched roofs, canvas walls and a ceiling 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, complementing the contemporary floor.

Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers professionally guided morning & evening safari drives conducted in specially adapted open Land Cruisers. Driving is done on both private gravel roads within the concession and on Kruger National Park roads. To preserve our 12,000 hectare wilderness concession, no off-roading is practiced. In addition, we have use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANparks has allowed us the exclusive advantage of being able to utilise 170km of Park roads after gate closing time – when all other park visitors have to be back in camp.
One can also combine the Rhino Post Safari Lodge with a stay at Plains Camp, where one can enjoy the wilderness on foot, and even a night at the Sleepout Decks for a truly unique experience.
