Pros: Perfect location and knowledgeable staff. Saw the Big 5 on our 1st 2-3 days of our stay
Cons: It was perfect.
Pros: My husband and I stayed at Elephants Plains and had a wonderful experience. Staff was really attentive to every single detail and really kind. Game drive was absolutely outstanding. We were really able to see a lot of animals and our guide was very professional and explained us a lot. Then the lodge and food was just perfect. We will definitely come back and we highly recommend it.
Pros: One of the best place we have ever been. Exciting experience the afternoon game drive: the tracker and the guide have been wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable and the service very attentive. Pleasant breakfast and dinner.
Cons: The scheduled guided walking in the morning have been cancelled without any notification and they left us waiting for walking depart for 40 minutes until we have decided to ask further news (as we had asked at the time scheduled for depart at the reception and they confirmed the guided walk was going to have place in few minutes). The concern is due to the fact they haven't informed us promptly and proposed nothing as alternative activity despite the walk has been paid by us.
Pros: The hotel staff is amazing. Our room (the honeymoon suit) was great and nice but air condition did not work (nights are still very cold early Sep and waking up at 5 am for the morning drive in a called room is not that pleasant). Our guide/ranger was OK but we had better guides in our previous private game reserves. Food was good, not amazing. Some meals were very good, some average. Leopards viewing is amazing.
Cons: For the huge money we spent we expected the air condition to work. They tried to fix it but with success. As I mentioned, Leopards viewing is amazing but the overall wildlife viewing was slightly disappointing. Many say that Sabi Sand is the best reserve for game viewing. As far as we can judge it is not! We saw many leopards, we got real close to them but other than that - not much to write home about.
Cons: Nothing this place is amazing, magical and allowed me to see these animals so close and felt safe at all times. Elephant Plains was the highlight of my trip to South Africa
Pros: Great lodge! Staff are fantastic. Special thanks to Dillon our Ranger/Driver and Life our Tracker. We saw the big five plus thank to Life a leopard take down a small antelope. Amazing stay.
Pros: We stayed in a luxury suite which was very comfortable with amazing views from our verandah, including elephants and other animals in the dry riverbed below. The game drives far exceeded our expectations with exceptional sightings of several leopards and a large pride of lions including cubs. We saw all of the big 5 and Darren and his tracker Chris gave us the most wonderful safari experience. We have travelled all over Africa on many safaris and our 3 night stay at EP was by far the best and the highlight of our South African holiday.
Pros: Highly recommend! We were sadly only able to stay one night but were able to see the Big 5 within our two safaris. The food was amazing. The room was perfect and very comfortable. The staff were gracious and welcoming. 10/10
Pros: Clean and well organized
Pros: The game drives were simply incredible! And our ranger was very knowedgeable, answering every question we had with plenty of details. The food served at the lodge was very good, and the staff very fiendly and available to our requests.
Cons: Only negative aspect is that you need to pay a fee when entering the park gate and reach the lodge. I understand that this fee is for the park and not the lodge, so it has to be paid to access every lodge within the park. However this fee is is not specified anywhere on the booking page, and it would be nicer to know before booking, and not after reaching the destination.

Pros: The meals were simple adequate and delicious . Never left the table either underfed or stuffed with food . Exactly what one would expect from a Game lodge that does not try and be a boutique hotel as well . The game drives were informative and excellent and the drivers and spotters were excellent ambassadors for the Lodge . Fellow guests were also part of the enjoyment
Cons: Have to think hard and honestly cannot come up with anything
Pros: stayed here twice before - have found the service has gone down a bit. cecelia was very accommodating and helpful
Cons: staff were not as attentive tables were not set drinks/ barmen were not very good quality of the food options was not at its best. game ringer - did not communicate very well
Pros: A magical stay at Inyati. Staff were incredibly friendly and we had the most amazing guide who showed us the most wonderful time.
Pros: It was a beautiful place with great food. Met nice people from all over the world and staff was very nice. Best part of the game drives was the off roading through river beds and sometimes just through the bush. We had the thrill of tracking a leopard and her baby and found another leopard with his kill in the tree eating as hyenas gathered below.
Cons: The wildlife wasn’t as dense in Sabie Sands as we expected and we couldn’t leave to go outside or back to room without escort due to resort not being fenced.

Pros: Property extremely luxurious, staff highly professional and friendly. Stay was excellent and food and experience too. Highly recommend!
Pros: The location and the romance of a time gone by.
Cons: Needs maintenance and a thorough deep clean. It’s dirty.
Pros: The location and facilities were unique, an area of stunning natural beauty! Everything was clean and we have to mention, that they put a big effort to every single detail.

Furthermore, the staffs goodbye performance at the end was a warm and sincere surprise too.
Cons: There is nothing what we didn't like.
Pros: Being on the river bed with no fencing, plenty of wild animals, only a few guests, friendly staff, amazing food, bathtub overlooking the dry riverbed with animals passing through.

Pros: Hi , I have sent emails about this a few times .... you ask us to pay in advance yet when it comes time for us to get our money back from you its another issue.

Cons: I liked everything
Pros: The hotel itself was beautiful the meals were fantastic most of the staff was nice and welcoming rooms were very clean
Cons: Some of the reception team was rude
Pros: Close to kruger Park entrance
Cons: Under full construction without any notice ahead. Noise disturbance all over. Pool is just for Instagram pictures. key cards not working and you always has to ask of you want to go to the room which can take a while.
Pros: Just around the corner at the Kruger gate. Nice place to stay.
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Although the dinners outside were nice, a few more evenings inside would have been nice. Watch out for monkeys, one "stole" an orange from inside the room, when housekeeping left the door open a tad too long...
With a stay at Rhino Post Safari Lodge in Kruger National Park, you'll be 15.8 mi (25.4 km) from Manyeleti Game Reserve and 8.4 mi (13.5 km) from Londolozi Game Reserve. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The staff were incredible, nothing too much trouble and how they remember all the guests names is beyond me. Our guides on the drives were enthusiastic and you could tell how they love doing what they do, Bonga and Greg we really loved the time spent on the drives with you. The animals really put on a show for us, this is a wonderful time of year to view game, even had a leopard cross the road as we were turning into the Skakuza airport road. It was everything we hoped it would be and more, hope to return again pretty soon. Was pleasantly surprised by the price of drinks at the bar and in the mini bar in the room.
Cons: We are not big on communal eating, but this is the way at most lodges. Would like to see handles on the bath for us oldies to cling too when getting in and out. But this is really nit picking, we have no complaints really.
Pros: When my wife and I arrived, I was under the weather but RPSL took good care of me. I went to visit a MD they organized for me in a nearby town and I improved a lot. They prepared a few special meals that also helped a lot. We were able to eat under the stars a couple of nights. — Very romantic! Because I was not feeling well, I stayed behind from some of the Safaris. My wife saw animals she had missed earlier in our trip and even though I was back at the Lodge, many animals ca me to visit the water hole rear the lodge. When I could finally go with her, I got to see the big 5: Elephant, Leopard, Cape Buffalo, Lions and Rhinos And Hippopotamus. And Giraffes too, Thrilling! That’s more than 5– Our safaris guide was very attentive and kept track of who had see what and made sure everyone got to see what they came for (as far as the animals would let him)
Cons: Could not have been more pleased!
Pros: An amazing camp stay. Staff were excellent! Location was awesome!
Pros: Everything! The place is great and it gives the best experience for a Safari, since it is open you really have the feeling of be in touch with African nature with some great experiences involve: elephants just some meters away, baboons drinking water outside your beadroom, and even lions in the surrounding. The guides know some much about the animals so we learned so much about them. The breakfast is great with a lot of options, also the meal before the afternoon safari and all the snacks they give you for the safari, dinner is also amazing and all the facilities are breathtaking. The way to the beadrooms is great and open (guides walked with us a nigh) so even go there is an adventure and the rooms are beautiful, clean and with an amazing view.
Cons: Nothing, I just loved everything :)
Pros: Awesome location. Great view and game driver. Staff is very passionate. Good food and great evenings with travelers from all over the world at the fire pit. Worth the money.
Cons: Only one small thing. More to eat during the morning game drives. Take something with you. But just a detail.
Pros: Amazing game drive with the guide Banga, very friendly and super passionated. Great food and very personal service Confortable room giving the real into the wild experience
Cons: It was winter time so the room was a bit cold.
Pros: In a great part of the Kruger, situated along a dry river bed, abundance of animals and wild life. Rustic, but very comfortable.
Pros: Amazing service. Incredibly personal and exclusive
