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

This was our 2nd trip into Kruger as part of a 2 week holiday to SA. Rhino Post are a good 3 - 4 hour drive from Nelspruit, depending on whether you stop a long the way and also which gate you enter the park via. I’d recommend the Paul Kruger gate as it’s the nearest to the lodge so... More

Hi Kristian B Thank you very much for your great feedback. We are in the process of negotiating with SANParks for alternative ways of avoiding traffic at peak periods. The Kruger Park's public roads however are built along the best game viewing areas (near rivers and dams) so they remain a good game viewing option. Fortunately after gate closing times,... More

I have not stayed in the lodge - only dealt with the customer service and General Manager of the lodge due to overbooking.

Stayed on night as part of organized safari. Game drives with ranger Colin were great, with lots of animals spotted. Food was good. Location right in nature is fantastic, the private little hut had a veranda, outdoor shower, and hot tub was magic. Leaving this place made me sad.

This is the most amazing place... nestled deep in the wilderness, yet stock full of luxury. After excellent morning and evening safaris, we enjoyed excellent, gourmet style meals and crystal place settings. I felt like royalty on safari. Our hostess, Nikki, and her husband (his name escapes me...), were top class and very sociable. The guides were light hearted and... More

The Rhino Post Lodge is immaculately maintained and cared for by managers who value the personal touch. They had brunch and dinner with us and shared their stories. They've managed the lodge since it was launched 11 years ago. All the staff were very friendly, introducing themselves so we were all on a first name basis. Mingling with the other... More
