Day 4

Rhino Post Safari Lodge

Rhino Post Safari Lodge offers both early morning and evening games drives. Game drive safaris are conducted in specially adapted open Land cruisers, with professional guides. To preserve our wilderness concession, no off-roading is practiced. In addition to driving on the 12,000 hectare concession, the lodge has exclusive use of some of the Kruger National Park public roads at night. SANparks has allowed the lodge the added advantage of being able to utilise 170km of Park roads after gate closing time, which is when all the self-drive tourists have left and when the other concessions have to be back on their own property.

A typical day would include an early start, a cup of fresh coffee or tea, after which guests set out on their game drive. Guides at the lodge meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African wilderness are exciting, informative and safe.
