Pleasant riverbed location
Rhino Post has a pleasant location next to the bed of the seasonal Mutlumuvi river with game viewing from the main viewing deck at a small waterhole. We recommend this lodge when used with its walking operation, RWS Plains Camp.
Drives confined to roads
Rhino Post is at one extreme of a 120 square kilometre concession in south Kruger. This is zoned as wilderness so, unusually for private lodges, off-road driving is not permitted under any circumstances.
Limited concession network
There is a network of gravel roads within the concession but drives may not deviate off these in pursuit of sightings and they are not particularly dense. Quite a lot of driving is done outside the concession on Kruger Park roads as a consequence.
Krruger roads at night
Rhino Post does score in having unique after-hours access to 170km of roads in the public park which are not otherwise accessible. These are used for game drives. You will encounter folk driving around in their own vehicles if you are on the tar roads when the restcamp gates are open.
Kruger's closed gates
The public Kruger roads after dark are interesting nevertheless – animals are drawn to the residual heat after the sun goes down. We have seen the Big Five here in a single (long) drive after dark.
The lodge sleeps sixteen people in eight suites. Each is stylishly decorated and includes a spacious bedroom with views of the riverbed from the bathroom, outdoor shower and patio deck.
Facilities are commensurate with lodges at the same price level – dining is a communal buffet. There is a good sized pool. Massages are available in your suite. However, given its traversing limitations, it serves best as a base camp for trails elsewhere.
