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. For those of you who have always dreamed of walking in the KNP, being at one with nature, the animals and the elements, what an experience. We were very fortunate to stay at Plains Camp which caters for walks/hikes, just what the doctor ordered. The entire stay was... More

Spent 4 days with Rhino Post. 2 nights at the camp and 2 nights at the lodge. All the staff were exceptional. All very attentive and focused on ensuring we had a memorable time.

You could spend the whole day sitting on the patio watching animals visit the watering hole outback. The staff takes the time to learn your name and chat with you. We had Joey as a guide, and would highly recommend him to anyone visiting. Regardless of your safari experience, he's able to cater to everyone.

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.
