Bush Sleepouts

Rhino Post Safari Lodge Located on the banks of the Mutlu riverbed, the Lodge is the “base” lodge from where guests have the opportunity to travel to the Plains Camp for the thrilling walking safaris. From here safari enthusiasts also have the chance to sleep under the stars at one of the lodge's unique Sleepouts. The Sleep Out platforms overlook a magnificent waterhole where the sunset can be admired while sipping a refreshing sundowner. While the guide prepares a traditional South African braai on an open fire, guests may relax and enjoy the sounds and senses of the African Bush.

In evenings guests retire to their platform and enjoy sleeping under the star-studded sky. The rumble of an elephant passing by or the roar of a lion at the nearby waterhole, are the only noises which might disturb guests in this peaceful bushveld. After a light snack the next morning, guests depart back to the Rhino Post Safari Lodge for a hearty brunch.

Swimming

Guests may refresh in between game drives in the lodge's outdoor swimming pool which is beautifully set overlooking the bushveld.

Bird watching

The Kruger National Park in South Africa is home to more than 500 bird species, some of which are not found anywhere else in the world.   Rhino Walking Safaris provides travellers with tailor-made packages including a special birding safari.  Bird watching enthusiasts can look forward to admiring the 'Big Six': Ground Hornbill, Kori Bustard, Lappet-faced Vulture, Martial Eagle, Pel’s Fishing Owl and the Saddle-bill Stork.

In addition to these, Hornbills, Starlings, Vultures, Rollers, Bee-eaters and Shrikes make this region of South Africa a prime birdwatching area. Raptor viewing is extremely rewarding with Bateleur, Martial, Black-breasted Snake, Brown Snake, African Hawk, African Fish and Tawny Eagles seen regularly. In summer birders can spot the Wahlberg, Steppe and Lesser Spotted.

The Sleep Out platforms overlook a magnificent waterhole where the sunset can be admired whilst sipping a refreshing sundowner.  While the guide prepares a traditional South African braai on an open fire, guests may relax and enjoy the sounds and senses of the African Bush as the night sets in.

After dinner guests retire to their individual platform and enjoy sleeping under the star studded sky.  The rumble of an elephant passing by or the roar of a lion at the nearby waterhole, are the only noises which might disturb guests in this peaceful bushveld.
