Late Arrivals

  • Rhino Post Safari Lodge will not be held responsible for guests arriving at the gates after closing times.
  • Guests must allow sufficient time to travel through the park and arrive at the lodge before sunset.
  • Guests are not allowed to travel on Kruger Park roads after sunset.
  • Always allow extra time for animals blocking the road.
  • Remember the speed limit is 50kms in the park – please take this into account when planning your trip.

Please Note: If guests are not in time at the respective gates, the SANParks personnel will not allow them to enter the park and they will have to find alternative accommodation for that night.

We are required to adhere to the SANParks rules and restrictions. Guests must arrive at the gate on time in order to make it onto the concession by Gate Closing Time. Failure to adhere to these times can result in refused entry by SANParks, and having to find alternative accommodation outside the park for the night (for your own account).

Late/early transfer arrangements and permits can be arranged by the lodge – but are dependent on the Kruger Park officials agreeing that the case is an emergency.

NOTE: Guests arriving for Rhino Post Safari Lodge and Plains Camp are advised to enter through the Kruger Gate.

If the necessary pre-planning is not done, it can result in guests having to pay the full conservation fee at the gate of entry, and no reimbursements will be made.

If guests are travelling via another route which makes an alternative gate more practical, the reservations office must be informed prior to travelling so that alternative arrangements can be made for the other gate. Last-minute changes on the day of arrival can be accommodated if the guest/agent contacts the lodge directly prior to their arrival at the gate, to inform them to make the necessary changes.

Rhino Post Safari Lodge is accessible in a normal 2 X 4 vehicle. Travelling time by vehicle from Johannesburg to Rhino Post Safari Lodge is approximately seven hours (500km). Click on the directions below to download a PDF
