Rhino Post Safari lodge and **** Plains Camp is in the Kruger itself

With action packed Kruger National Park game drive safaris, guided walking safaris and an optional Sleep-out experience in Big 5 territory.

Day 1:  Your safari adventure begins

06h00 Your Driver will meet you in the foyer of your Johannesburg hotel and transfer your to the departure point for your luxury shared shuttle and a road transfer to Skukuza airport where you will be met by your Rhino Post ranger and transfer to the lodge

OR choose a 1 hour fight from Johannesburg to Skukuza  

Upon arrival at Rhino Post Safari Lodge you will be greeted by our friendly front-of-house team and welcomed with a chilled home-brewed iced tea on our deck overlooking the river bed before you are shown to your suite.

You will be offered a high tea at 15h30 in the lounge overlooking the waterhole before departing for an afternoon / evening game drive at 16h00.

Game drive safaris are conducted by professional rangers in open 4×4 vehicles.

Rhino Post also has the exclusive use of 170 kilometres of road within the Kruger after dark when other visitors are confined to camp.

Our afternoon drives stop for sun-downer drinks and snacks at sunset before continuing into the night in search of wildlife,

The drives return to the lodge in time for guests to freshen up and enjoy a drink before a sumptuous dinner on the deck.

Dinner is sometimes complimented by even more game viewing as animals come down to the waterhole to drink

Overnight: Rhino Post Safari Lodge  – Fully inclusive of all meals  ( brunch, high tea and dinner ), teas, coffees and twice daily game drives 

Day 2:  Scheduled Game Viewing Activities 

Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers early morning and evening safari drives. Safari drives are conducted in specially adapted open Land Cruisers, with professional guides.

In addition to limited 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 respective properties.

Day 3:  Safari Game Drives and Walking Safari 

Early wake-up call, and will have time for a cup of tea or coffee before heading out on your game drive.

Midway through your game drive, your guide will stop for a tea or coffee break before returning to the lodge.

Once back at the lodge, brunch will be served. Brunch is usually served between 10h00 and 10h30

At 14h00 we check out and you will be transferred by 4×4 to Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris), a trip which takes about 30 minutes and is a mini-game drive in itself.

After settling into your 19th century explorer-style luxury tent and being shown around the camp, high tea is served

After your rangers have been through the safety precautions, you will set off on a Safari walk which is always an exhilarating experience. All walks are led by two armed guides.

You will later return to the vehicle in time for sun-downers and enjoy a night drive before returning to camp for a excellent dinner around the camp fire.

Overnight:  Plains Camp  – Fully Inclusive of all meals  (brunch, high tea and dinner), cold drinks, house wine and local beers, teas & coffees, morning walk and afternoon walk/game drive

Day 4:   Walking Safari Trail

All walking trails are enjoyed in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday heat, with the average duration of the morning walk being between 3 and 4 hours.

On each walking safari our guides will share their wealth of “bush culture’’ – not only identifying flora and fauna but also explaining the medicinal uses of plants, local folk lore and interpreting wildlife tracks in the sand.

A hearty brunch is served after getting back from the morning walk.  Choose to take the opportunity to cool off in in the plunge pool or simply relax on the deck while doing some more game-watching over the Timbetene Plain.

High tea is followed by an afternoon walk and a evening game drive.

Drinks around the fire, followed by dinner complete the day.

Overnight:  Plains Camp  – Fully Inclusive of all meals  (brunch, high tea and dinner), cold drinks, house wine and local beers, teas & coffees, morning walk and afternoon walk/game drive

Day 5:   Your safari ends

After a light snack and tea or coffee you’ll be taken on another safari walk.

After the walk brunch will be served.

You’ll then be transferred to Rhino Post Safari Lodge for check out.

Then transfer back to Skukuza for your road shuttle back to Johannesburg arriving late afternoon.

Depending on your travel arrangements, you may need to forego the morning activity at Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris).

Optional Sleepout from Plains Camp

Sleepouts are optional and need to be pre-booked.

Our Sleepout experience operated from Plains Camp or by special request from Rhino Post Safari Lodge, is unique amongst lodges in the Kruger National Park and offers guests the experience of sleeping under the stars on elevated platforms.

Sleepouts are totally weather dependent. The first guests to reserve a trail determines whether a Sleepout will be included on that trail or not. If the first guests who reserve the trail request the Sleepout then all guests on that trail will do a Sleepout. If the first guests to book the trail stipulate that they do not wish to do a Sleepout then nobody on that trail will be able to do a Sleepout.

Should you opt for the Sleepout experience, our trail guides will provide you with a light-weight backpack in which to carry a change of clothes and essential toiletries.  After tea, your guides will lead you on an hour-and-a-half walk to the Sleepout decks, stopping along the way to view wildlife.

The platforms are elevated about four metres above the ground and guests sleep on individual sleeping decks in a tent made of mosquito netting. After you have settled onto your deck, you will enjoy sundowners overlooking the waterhole. While your dinner is being prepared over an open fire the night sounds will bring another dimension to your bush experience. Your guides will ensure your safety at all times.

The four decks accommodate a maximum of 8 people and there are two bathrooms that each have a flush toilet and shower.

After coffee or tea and a light snack the next morning, you’ll walk back to Plains Camp for breakfast and a shower or swim.

Note:

  1. Sleepouts will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather
  2. The first guests to reserve a walking trail determine whether a Sleepout will be included on that trail or not. If the first guests who reserve the trail request the Sleepout then all guests on that trail will participate in the Sleepout. If the first guests to book the trail stipulate that they do not wish to do a Sleepout then the Sleepout option will not be available.
