Introduction

The ultimate wilderness experience at two of our exquisite lodges, Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris) in the Kruger National Park and Chundu Island in Victoria Falls.

RhinoPost Safari Lodge and Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris), are situated on a 12 000 hectare private wilderness concession located entirely within the world renowned Kruger National Park (KNP).

The concession offers some of the best game viewing opportunities in Africa and the Big Five – elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo - can be seen, as well as a wide diversity of other fauna and flora.

We are located 20 kilometres from Kruger’s Skukuza Airport and share a 14km unfenced boundary with the Mala Mala Game Reserve and the Sabi Sands.

Plains Camp is situated in the heart of the concession overlooking the spectacular Timbitene Plain and waterhole.  Nestled in an Acacia Knobthorn thicket, Plains Camp offers four creatively elegantly furnished African explorer-style luxury tents, with en-suite and hot running water.

The construction and location of the camp helps visitors achieve a sense of being part of nature, whilst still enjoying the serenity of a comfortably appointed camp that would have delighted the great explorers of the 19thcentury. 

The camp forms the ideal base for safari walks with experienced guides who enthral visitors with the knowledge of the bush and its residents. Depending on availability and the weather, guests at Plains Camp may also have the option of sleeping out under the stars on the elevated decks at the Sleepout.
 

Chundu Island, located on a private island concession on the Zambezi River, Chundu Island offers the perfect foil to the hustle and bustle of Victoria Falls.

The surroundings and construction of the lodge sets a ‘Seychelles meets Zambezi’ mood and the spacious palm thatched suites sheltered by huge riverine trees along the edge of the island overlook the mighty Zambezi River, the fourth largest watercourse in Africa. Chundu Island falls within the Zambezi National Park which boasts a wide range of wildlife. Elephants, hippos and other animals are often seen on the southern bank of the river a few hundred metres from the lodge.

The best of both worlds is on offer here, with a combination of water activities and wildlife viewing. 

Game drives and walks, canoeing on the river, fishing and birding, and stunning sunsets are just some of the attractions of the barefoot island-lifestyle at Chundu.

Guests choose activities upon arrival at the lodge and are regularly briefed about the various activity options on offer.
