Rhino Walking Safaris are based on a private concession inside the Kruger National Park that shares a 15 km unfenced boundary with the famous Mala Mala Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand Reserve. There is an abundance of wildlife moving freely between the areas giving some of the best game viewing in Africa. Rhino Walking Safaris offer a combination of safaris with a traditional 4* safari lodge and a chance to spend a couple of nights in their tented Rhino Plains Camp. There is also a raised sleep-out platform, located 4m above ground in the trees where guests can opt to overnight.
Guests are treated to a mixture of game drives in 4×4 safari vehicles and walking safaris accompanied by armed Rangers and Trackers. Follow animal trails on foot through this environmentally sensitive area that offers the Big Five as well as a diversity of fauna and flora.
Spend a couple of nights at the lodge before you head out on foot to plains camp to spend 2 nights under canvas and enjoy game viewing as part of a walking safari.
Rhino Post Safari Lodge
The main lodge, Rhino Post Safari Lodge is set under magnificent Tamboti trees and is built with natural materials – stone, wood, thatch and canvas – to give it an authentic bush feel.
Stilts raise the 8 spaciously appointed suites from the riverbank allowing guests to view the Mutlumuvi riverbed with ease from the bedroom, bathroom and private wooden deck. The suites are set out in an open plan style with wooden floors, thatched roofs, canvas walls and an overhead fan.
In the heat of summer, cool off in the swimming pool and watch the wildlife amble down to the waterhole for a midday drink. At sundown, enjoy a cocktail in the comfort of the lounge with its extensive wine cellar, cosy fireplace and bar.
Plains Camp has four African explorer-style tents nestled in an Acacia Knobthorn thicket, which overlooks the spectacular Timbitene plain with its abundant wildlife. This 8-bed camp is built in authentic pioneer tradition and reflects the ambience of a 19th century naturalist’s retreat.
By prior arrangement guests can also enjoy a night under the stars at the Sleep Outs, which are elevated wooden platforms.
