- Big Five
- Private Reserve
- Authentic Safari feel
Located in the Kruger South area of Kruger National Park, Rhino Post is a small, traditional lodge with close links with the walking safari base, Plains Camp. Family friendly with good game opportunities this is a great alternative to the much more expensive options in nearby Sabi Sands.
The lodge is situated on the banks of a dry riverbed and has excellent views over a popular waterhole. A formal dining room, lounge, outdoor deck and swimming pool make the communal areas perfect places to unwind after long days exploring the bush. As the only private concession within the reserve, the concession shares 15km of unfenced border with the Sabi Sands Reserve and as a result the area has excellent game viewing opportunities in ‘Big Five’ territory. Twice daily game drives are led by deeply knowledgeable rangers with exclusive rights across the concession. Not limited to safaris, in room spa treatments, bird watching and sleep outs can also be booked as well as a round of golf in nearby Skukuza.
Eight tented ‘bush suites’ house 16 guests all raised on stilts above the riverbed with far reaching views. With an emphasis on a small environmental impact, all the suites are constructed out of natural materials creating an authentic, traditional atmosphere. Each suite has a ‘his and hers’ bathroom with free standing bath, outdoor showers and private decking area. The facilities are simple but sufficient and the result is a true feeling of being in the bush.
Children are welcome at Rhino Post, although there is a maximum of 6 children under 8 years to be guests at any one time. The game drives have a minimum age of six which is relatively young in comparison with most camps. Triple rooms can be arranged to accommodate one child and childminding services are available making this a great choice for younger families.

Tailor-made Classic 10 days
A fabulous and memorable holiday to Africa and a big thank you to Lisa at Tourdust for her in depth knowledge and for designing our once in a lifetime trip.
The original thoughts were to stay in Cape Town and then go on safari. After many discussions and a lot of patience from Lisa we settled on Capetown, a safari in Botswana and Victoria Falls. It turned out to be the most special and amazing holiday that we have been on.
Cape Town accommodation was great, modern, clean, spacious and close to the V&A. The views at the back were of Table Mountain! We opted for guided tours to Cape of Good Hope and whale watching. Our guide called Chris was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and chatted to us alot and was great with my children.
Next was Botswana and Muchenje Lodge. The location was fantastic with views over the Chobe river. Right from the start we were looked after so well and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We went on lots of different safari drives from early morning, late evening and all day ones and my favourite was on the river itself as we were able to get really close to the elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Our guides were brilliant (particularly Rambo) and helped us to find all the animals we wanted to see, even the elusive wild dogs and leopards.
Meals were at set times, which was lovely as it meant we could talk to the other guests and hear about their day and it was nice that some of the guides joined us as well. We also loved the singing and dancing that the staff did after one meal.
Final destination Zambia and Victoria Falls, where we stayed at Waterberry Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi. An amazing location right on the river bank.
We did a guided tour to Victoria Falls and yet again we had a brilliant tour guide.
From our lodge we did a river cruise, saw a magnificent sunset and we tried our hand at fishing which was great fun.
I would love to go back to Africa again to visit some other countries and I will definitely use Tourdust again. Thank you so much Lisa.
