Very nice, privatly owned, camp in Kruger park, very well maintained with a great staff. Maybe one of the best rangers we had during our trip (Thx Joey) The luxury tents are great with wonderfull views (we had an elephant next to our tent at night) The camp has a great atmosphere. A bit of luxury in the middle of... More

A buddy and I wanted an amazing safari experience at Kruger and Rhino Post did not disappoint. We had two nights at the lodge, one night at the Plains Camp and one night under the stars on the platform. All were fantastic. It's amazing that they can run such a clean, high-quality operation so far removed but they do. The... More

Dear Bambatta66 Thanks very much for the great review. I agree with you, combining Rhino Post with a stay at our trails camp for the walking enthusiasts is the way to go! Not to mention the sleepout... So glad you enjoyed it, and we hope to see you again. Kind regards Nikki More

Just spent 7 amazing nights in Rhino Post. Not our first time on safari so high expectations, Rhino Post cannot be faulted. Accommodation is very comfortable and staff are first class. Rhino Post does not offer a manufactured, tourist version of SA,instead they provide a delightful base coupled with great expertise to enable guests to explore the many natural wonders... More

Have just spent 1 blissful night at Rhino Post and 2 even more blissful nights at Plains camp with my partner ,Louise. The setting, accommodation, game viewing and general experience is difficult to describe- we left with the feeling that we had shared in something special. Most important for me was that it is clear that the entire operation is... More

What's better on a South African trip to Kruger National Park than to sleep in a 5-star tent lodge 100meters from one of the few wet watering holes during the dry season? The scene was worth the visit. Saw more animals than if I had gone for all the evening drives. Even met a leopard right at the gate as... More

We visited in later July 2015 and booked a package that was 2 nights and the Plains camp and 1 night at Rhino Post. All 3 nights were beyond what we expected, and by the time we left, were already taking about how we need to come back and do maybe 4 or 5 nights instead! I'll break this down... More

June 2015 was our 14th visit to RPSL and it was just as amazing as the first time! We cannot say enough good things about the Lodge - the rooms are beautiful, spacious, the beds are huge and very comfortable and the outdoor showers a nice touch. The food is world class and the desserts are out of this world,... More

We chose the package which offers two days at Plains Camp with walking safaris followed by two days art Rhino Post. I would recommend this unreservedly, with the former being small luxury tents, and the latter slightly bigger and smarter. Gerrit and Nikki work ceaselessly but unobtrusively to ensure your stay is top notch. Little things like the staff remembering... More

What a wonderful experience, two and a half days in absolute heaven.
