Why Rhino Walking Safaris?

The most captivating reasons to explore with us

In 1978 SANParks offered visitors to the park the opportunity to walk in the Kruger National Park with armed guides which proved to be a massive success in ensuing years. Rhino Walking Safaris identified the need for a similar opportunity to be offered to discerning clients wanting to be close to nature, but with more of a ‘glamping’ feel. Since 2002 Plains Camp @ Rhino Walking Safaris has filled this niche in the tourism market by providing specialist walking safaris in the Kruger National Park.


Experienced guides with a passion for nature

When contemplating heading out into the bush on foot, in an area rich in game, including the somewhat infamous big 5, you want to know that you are in safe hands. Guides at Rhino Walking Safaris hold the highest possible academic and practical qualification for guiding on foot and are backed up by assistant Trails Rangers with a lifetime of experience. We usually employ our assistant Trails Rangers from retiring SANParks Field Rangers, most of whom have spent almost all of their working lives patrolling the Kruger Park keeping a sharp eye out for signs of poaching, disease or unusual activity.


Live like an African explorer

Most wilderness trails either involve carrying and pitching tents or staying in a reasonably basic base camp – with shared ablution facilities, simple meals and no bar facility (though you may bring your own drinks). At Plains Camp, we have established a well-appointed camp with large en-suite tents, comfortable extra-length beds and quality linens. An honesty bar (with soft drinks, beers, ciders and house wines included in the rate), and a plunge pool in which to cool off on a hot day just adds to the ease of camp living. The chef prepares a hearty brunch, tasty high tea and three-course dinner from fresh ingredients. Served at a table set with white linen, candles and silverware, this is the best way to end an exciting day in the bush.


Kruger the way it was meant to be

With 12 000 hectares of unspoiled wilderness to explore (not previously accessible to the public – and currently only accessible to guests of Rhino Walking Safaris), there is very little to disturb you while on a walk. The guides may choose to walk from the camp, or to drive out and walk from the vehicle – all without seeing any of the public visitors to the park.


Immerse your senses in what the Kruger has to offer

There are different ‘layers’ to experiencing the bush. The first and most commonly done is to go out on game drives looking for bigger animals and changing landscapes. The second, for serious bush-lovers and connoisseurs – or those looking for a closer to nature experience – is that of seeing everything from the ground. Walking, taking in the sights, sounds and scents of nature – even tasting wild fruits, and learning about the little things sometimes missed while on a drive; not to mention experiencing the thrill of seeing the big game on foot. With a four-hour morning walk and shorter late afternoon walk combined with a brief game drive, there is plenty of opportunities to get the most out of this experience.

Adventures all around

New exciting experiences including the option to pre-book additional nights at Rhino Post Safari Lodge or the Sleep-Out decks. Within 10kms of Plains Camp lies Rhino Post Safari Lodge, the ideal place to start or end your walking safari – with in-room massages, a deep freestanding bathtub and an outdoor shower to ease you back into (or out of!) civilisation. Game drives in this game-rich area are usually very fruitful. Experience the best the wild has to offer and sleep out under the stars on a raised deck (our Sleep-Out decks) on a high-density foam mattress with nothing but a soft duvet and sheer shade cloth between you and the night sky.
