Just a short drive from Skukuza, Rhino Post Safari Lodge is tucked away in a private concession along the river bank pretty much in the middle of nowhere. With just 8 cottages, separated far enough from each other and all overlooking the (mostly dry) river and, most important, lodge's own waterhole one can enjoy the privacy and complete peace and...

Just returned from a visit to Rhino Post. It was a wonderful experience! The staff are warm and welcoming. The accommodations are comfortable and well appointed. The food is excellent. The wine selection is extensive. But the main reason for going and enjoying your stay is that the rangers are great at taking you out to find the different animals:... More

When we were looking for a quick weekend away in the Kruger Park, there were so many to choose from. After spending hours trying to find the feel right place, I came across the Rhino Post Safari Lodge. We have visited different Private concessions previously, and must say that this Lodge is most definitely in the top category. We spent... More

My wife Lorna and I stayed here for three nights at the end of a 5 week tour of South Africa and Swaziland. What a way to end an unforgettable trip. It is very hard to say anything original about this place. The accommodation, staff and food are out of this world. Everybody works so hard to ensure you have... More

Our VBT Tour group spent our pre-cycling trip here for 3 nights! My fave hotel in all of South Africa! Staff treated us royally, food, welcome drinks and SA wine delicious! Our African hut with canvas walls and outdoor showers with monkeys overhead was charming. There are glass windows and sliding doirs off veranda so baboons won't get in. We... More

We stayed at the lodge for 3 days, and the facilities and surroundings were great. So was the food. The service was good and the staff there was very friendly and helpful.

I stay at Rhino Post Safari Lodge with a friend who is a serious meditator. Half way through our stay I inquire how her meditation sessions are going and am surprised when she replies “Terribly!” I ask why and she explains “It’s just too beautiful here. I can’t bear to close my eyes.” This sums up my experience too. I... More

What an amazing start for our visit to the Dark Continent. The two night three day stay was a perfect amount of time to stay at the lodge. The lodge is in Kruger National Park. Great care is taken to protect both guests and animals. The guests are caged during the drives on open land cruisers that have elevated bench... More

Stayed for 2 nights at Rhino Post in fall 2014, and it really was an amazing experience. Loved everything about it! The rooms are charming and the game rides spectacular and well organised. Our ranger (Colin, if I remember correctly?) is a star! Food was excellent, too, and staff is lovely. If I'd ever come back to Kruger, I'll make... More
