Rhino Walking Safaris specializes in guided walking safaris on a 12 000 hectare concession in the iconic Kruger National Park. A maximum of 8 guests are accompanied by 2 highly experienced FGASA trained armed trails guides on walks through the heart of Big 5 territory. Early morning walks last between 3 to 4 hours with a half hour refreshment break.
Afternoon walks leave the camp after high tea and last for approximately 45 minutes whereafter the guests alight an open 4×4 vehicle to continue looking for animals well after dark.
A typical day would include an early start, a cup of fresh coffee or tea, after which guests set out on foot led by their two highly experienced Trails Guides to explore the wilderness concession. Guides at the camp meet the stringent requirements of the South African National Parks and senior guides hold the highest guiding qualifications possible in South Africa, to ensure that your encounters with the African wilderness are exciting, informative and safe.
Early morning walks last between 3 to 4 hours with a refreshment stop along the way. On returning to camp guests are given an opportunity to freshen up before enjoying a hearty brunch. The day is then yours to relax at the plunge pool overlooking the vast Timbertene Plain while keeping an eye out for animals going to the water hole or read a book from the small Africana library or simply doze off in a comfortable armchair on the deck in the shade of the Acacia trees intermittently scanning the horizon with binoculars to check for any animals.
As the day begins to cool off guests enjoy high tea in the dining tent after which they leave for a shorter walk of approximately 45 minutes. As sunset approaches the guests will alight a 4×4 open land cruiser to drive to a picturesque spot to enjoy sundowners to the tune of the African sunset. Sunset heralds the time for the evening game drive to start looking for the elusive leopard and other fascinating nocturnal creatures.
At approximately 7.00pm guests return to the lodge, freshen up before going through to the dining tent to enjoy a delicious dinner followed by star gazing at the fire pit deck.
