Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a holiday during which I also visited Cape Town, the Winelands, Victoria Falls and Joburg, all expertly arranged by 2by2 Holidays. During my holiday I enjoyed some wonderful experiences but the hightlight of my trip was my stay at the Rhino Post Safari Lodge. The Lodge offers accommodation which I would describe as understated luxury, the food was excellent and the camp had, at all times, a relaxed feel to it. The camp is built next to a large watering hole which is used by the animals and so it wasn't even necessary to leave camp to see some amazing sights, including lions, elephants and buffalo. However, what made this place so special, for me, were the staff. Sharon, Marli and every member of their team were fantastic. They were, at all times, incredibly friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our Game Ranger, Ben, was also a star. Thanks to Ben we saw all of the Big 5, on numerous occasions, and additionally we enjoyed many amazing sightings of other animals and birds. Ben's knowledge of the animals and his dedication to ensuring that each game drive was both memorable and great fun was incredible. I would have no hesitation in recommmending Rhino Post to anyone. However, don't just take my word for it. During my stay at Rhino Post I met a documentary maker and travel agent with over 15 years' experience in the travel industry. He told me that Rhino Post is "as good as it gets".
