Rhino Post Safari Lodge is situated at the southern end of our 12,000 hectare private wilderness concession in the Kruger National Park. The concession shares a 15km unfenced boundary with the famous Mala Mala and Sabi Sand reserve with an abundance of wildlife moving freely between the two reserves. The concession is noted as an excellent game viewing area with encounters with the Big Five and where good sightings of wild animals can be expected. Rhino Post Safari Lodge is set under magnificent Tamboti trees on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed. The nature of a wilderness area is that there are no permanent structures, so Rhino Post Safari Lodge is built with natural materials – stone, wood, thatch and canvas - to give it an authentic bush feel. Each of the 8 suites are beautifully decorated with the bedroom and lounge area having wonderful views of the riverbed.

The food was amazing, and the staff were very friendly. Our guide was the best part of the whole stay. Disliked · 10 pm you were sent to your room, and all electric outlets were turned off until morning. You could not charge your electronics after 10pm. We wanted to sit around the fire pit and talk with other guests, but were informed its lights out at 10pm. If you want a military style vacation you will love this place. They tell you when you eat, have a snack, and when you have to go to bed. Once you are in your room at night you are not allowed to leave. The rooms are not rooms, let me explain. We were under the impression for 750.00 per night that the rooms would be just that a room with electric, a/c, and wifi. Also, drinks are not included with the nightly rate. The rooms are on stilts and are made of tent material. The front our the rooms that goes out onto the balcony do have glass and a door. It was so hot in the tent that the ceiling fan was not helping to cool the room down. The floors made lots of noise when you would walk from the bedroom to the bathroom. Our neighbors had their glass doors open, but screen pulled to get some air into the room, while they went to lodge to get a drink to come back and find a troop of monkeys in their tent room destroying everything. They also had a special at the time for 918.00 for two nights, but when I asked about getting a reimbursement of the difference we paid I was told we will get back with you. I still have not heard, so I guess once they have your money thats the end of that conversation. If you want to be told when to go to your room, and you enjoy expensive camping this is the place for you. I was under the impression for spending 1500.00 for 2 nights plus tax and drinks that this was a luxury resort. Contacted booking.com about the price being lower, as they advertise price match,but they wouldn't help us either. Posted below is a screen shot from booking.com with the lower price. Live and learn I guess. Hopefully the photos and my review will help others with making a decision about staying here.

Response from Nikki Meyer, Marketing at Rhino Post Safari Lodge
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Beachtails28 We are so disappointed to hear that you felt your stay wasn’t good value for money. Tented camps have both advantages and disadvantages, the inside temperature is a disadvantage, but we do have ceiling fans for summer and electric blankets for winter which make it more comfortable. The advantages are that we can operate in a wilderness area without causing damage and putting in big concrete foundations, and of course that it provides an authentic bush experience, where you can hear the night sounds. When the generator goes off at night, it does mean that the wall plugs don’t work, but the lights, electric blankets and fans continue to work on a battery system; so we do advise guests to charge their phones between 05h00 and bed time. The airhorns are an additional safety feature in the rooms as back up if the phone system goes down. It is a complex and sensitive microwave linked system that requires a specialist technician to adjust when something goes wrong, and we don’t want to leave our guests without a means of calling for assistance in an emergency. I am concerned that you felt that you were ‘sent to your room’ at 10pm. This is definitely not normal. I have spoken to your guide, and he says that the other guests left at 10pm, and he asked you if you would like an escort to your room or if you would like to stay at the bar. He says that he did not intend for you to feel rushed, and he apologises for having given that impression. Guests are welcome to enjoy the decks and the bar area until 12pm, and in fact, there have been instances where guests have stayed up far later than that. If this happens, your guide has to leave by 12pm in order to get enough sleep to be able to safely drive his guests early the next morning, but he is relieved by a management member who stays up with the guests, serves drinks and ensures that they are safely escorted to their rooms when they’re ready. We do ask guests not to leave their rooms without an escort at night, as we are located in a wildlife rich area, and at night, we do have elephants, lions and leopard that come to the waterhole to drink. This is not meant to be restrictive, but rather a safety precaution. We do warn guests on check-in that they should close all doors when not in the room, because the monkeys are inclined to raid rooms. This is one of the hazards of bush living. We managed for many years to keep them out of the lodge area, but unfortunately visitors don't always understand the harm it causes when they put food out for them (we understand, that they look really cute, but sadly they don't understand the difference between taking what is offered and helping themselves!) Meals are served at set times, to fit in with the game drive schedules, but we are flexible and can arrange earlier breakfasts for those not going on drive, as well as packed meals for the road. Dinners are a little trickier, in that we have to have completed dinner service by 10pm in order to allow for service staff to leave the park by 11pm, but we're happy to serve dinner earlier on request. I understand that your disappointment stems from discovering that we offer a last minute SADC special that is available to Southern Africans booking two weeks or less prior to arrival, which our receptionist was unable to price match for you. We are aware that this can be contentious, but it is not in any way intended to take advantage of our international clients, it is simply a way of filling beds at the last minute, and providing an opportunity for locals to also enjoy the luxury of a private lodge which is normally beyond their reach because of the local currency status. Unfortunately operating a small, exclusive lodge in a remote area is a very expensive business, and we do our utmost to keep our rates as reasonable as possible. You will probably have noticed that we also don’t take advantage of a ‘captive market’ by keeping our incidental prices low (bar, laundry and curio shop). We were so thrilled when your husband mentioned that this was his best ever South African safari experience, and are really sad to hear that we didn’t live up to your expectations.

Rhino Post Safari lodge offers an incredible escape from the modern world, albeit they have Wi-Fi and air-conditioning in the dining room! From the moment we arrived we were treated as family by all the staff. The accommodations are large wonderful patios overlooking the river bed, a wonderful bathroom with tub and, the best, and outdoor shower! Showering out in the open with views of game walking by is just incredible. The food was a delight with a different menu everyday. From the incredible breakfasts, to the afternoon high teas to the sumptuous dinners, you will not lack for food! As for the reason to visit, the game drives. Warren, our guide, is an incredibly enthusiastic guide who has that uncanny knowledge of animals and what they are going to do! Being in the public areas of the Kruger Park can be rather stressful due to all the traffic especially with good sightings. Warren just seemed to know what the animals were going to do and invariably we were always right there, in front of all the other vehicles. When we came up on a wild dog sighting there was already an incredible traffic jam, but sending what they pack may do he maneuvered his way past everyone to the other side of the road. We were the only vehicle on that side and the pack start moving toward us and Warren back the safari vehicle up for miles so that we had a front seat view. An incredible experience. Will definitely be back

Overall the service in the lodge was excellent which was beyond our expectations. The room was beautiful and very clean. The bed was king and very comfortable and the outdoor shower was inviting. We have an amazing view of the river bank from our balcony and also from our shower. You can lie down relaxingly by enjoying the view on impalas and hyenas with a glass of cocktail. On top of that, the Game Drives were spectacular (thanks to Vusi we saw every Big-5 in two days). We felt well pampered by the staffs which made our stay so pleasant.
