Rhino Post Safari Lodge
Location: Set on the banks of the Mutlumuvi Riverbed on the Southern
end of host concession, the elegant 16 bed Rhino Post Safari Lodge is host luxurious trails “base” lodge.
Lodge: Built using natural materials of stone, wood, thatch & canvas, the utmost care was taken to minimise the environmental impact of the lodge, and to that end, no concrete was used in the building's foundations. Careful consideration was taken in the layout of the camp, battery power is used for lighting, special indigenous Reedbed System processes the bathroom waste, and other waste is sorted and recycled wherever possible.
Suites: 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. Each ensuite bathroom includes a deep, freestanding bath, "his and hers" basins, a separate toilet and an outdoor shower protected by thick reed poles. The bathroom floor is attractively decorated with delicate mosaic designs complimenting the contemporary floor. All the suites have mini-bars and telephones linked to all areas.
Location: Plains Camp is situated in the heart of the wilderness concession overlooking the spectacular Timbitene Plain & waterhole. A 30 minute drive or approximately 3 hours walk from Rhino Post Safari Lodge.
Camp: Built in authentic pioneer tradition, it has the serenity of a 19th century naturalists rest, nestled in an Acacia Knobthorn thicket. Guest will either arrive at Plains camp on foot or by lodge vehicle, depending where their previous night was spent.
Tents: Plains Camp offers 4 comfortably furnished African explorer style tents, en suite with hot running water and all the comforts of home with the African Wilderness on your doorstep. A generator and a back-up battery system power overhead fans and 24 hour lighting. The generator system can be used to re-charge camera batteries at specific times.
Location: The elevated wooden Sleep Out platforms are located within the concession; approximately 1.5 hours walk from Plains Camp.
Platforms: Guests will arrive on foot at the platforms in the early evening carrying a lightweight rucksack containing a change of clothes, a pillowcase, a sheet inner for the sleeping bag and refreshments. After hanging up mosquito net tents, fly sheets (only if necessary) sundowners can be enjoyed on the platforms overlooking a waterhole.
To ensure a varying and complete concession experience establishment suggest that guests participate in a trail that encompasses all three experiences, Rhino Post Safari Lodge, Plains Camp (primarily walking) and Sleep Outs, as each is unique.
Establishment specialise in luxury walking safaris, the most rewarding way to discover and experience the secrets of the wilderness. Host walking trails are limited to 8 guests guided by two armed rangers. Host guides meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualification possible in South Africa.
Host guides will share their wealth of "bush culture": the identification of animals, trees, grasses, insects, birds, the medicinal uses of plants, local folk lore and basic tracking & survival skills. Nothing is predictable in the bush therefore each safari offers a potentially new experience.
