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

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
