All guests are to meet at Rhino Post Safari Lodge by 13:00. Guests are transferred to plains Camp at 14:00 in an open 4X4 game vehicle. If coming from Johannesburg, to arrive in good time, you should leave Johannesburg by 07:00.

The concession shares a 15km boundary with Mala Mala in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, with game moving freely between the two reserves and comprises environmentally sensitive areas previously unexplored, with a huge diversity of fauna and flora.

After settling into your tent and exploring the camp, high tea is served followed by a brief on the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of bush walking. Our guides meeting the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualification possible in South Africa. After the brief, you will depart with two armed guides for an introductory walk, returning to the vehicle in time for sundowners. After which you will enjoy a short drive before returning to camp.

All walking trails are enjoyed in the morning or late afternoon, to avoid the midday heat, with the average duration of a morning walk between 3 and 4 hours.
