GETTING THERE



DIRECTIONS
FROM JOHANNESBURG/PRETORIA

  • Take the N12 / N4 highway to Nelspruit. From Nelspruit, take the R40 through White River and onto Hazyview. At Hazyview turn right onto the R536 towards Paul Kruger Gate, Kruger National Park.
  • Once through the gate, drive straight (on the H11) for approximately 12km. You will reach a four-way crossing (do not take the left turning to Skukuza Camp unless you want to do some shopping, see the camp, have rest break or you have some spare time).
  • Proceed straight for another 2km until you reach a T-junction. Turn left at this junction, cross the low water bridge over the Sabi River and continue for approximately 1km until you reach another four-waycrossing, where you turn right (onto the H1-2).
  • Approximately 4km later you will cross the Sand River.
  • Again, keep heading straight and approximately 1km after the second Maroela Loop turning; you will seea dirt road on the left, signposted “Rhino Walking Safaris”.
  • Turn left (ignoring the No Entry Sign) andproceed for 2.5km. The road will then turn sharply left, with Rhino Post Safari Lodge a further 2.7km on.

Notes on Entering the Kruger Park:
The Kruger National Park has several entrance gates, although Rhino Walking Safari guests are advised to enter through Paul Kruger Gate, as it is the closest to the lodge. Guests must enter the Kruger Gate 45 minutes before closing time to allow sufficient time to drive to Rhino Post. Guests who know in advance that they will be unable to make the gate 45-minutes before closing time can arrive as late as 7pm. There will however, be a surcharge per vehicle (refer to rates) for an escort to accompany guests to the lodge. Prior arrangements are necessary to ensure this is available.
