Our History

Rhino Post Safari Lodge, Plains Camp (home of Rhino Walking Safaris) and the Sleepout Decks in the Kruger National Park were established in 2003.  This was our beginning. 

We were considered something of a Cinderella, and previously marketed under the banner of Isibindi Africa Lodges.  Now, many years later, under the banner of Seolo Africa, these lodges run at an extremely high occupancy, beating the occupancies of most (and often all) of the private concessions in the Kruger National Park.  We are very proud of the fact that we have achieved success without compromising our values, and that we are now known for authentic, affordable and amazing bush experiences.

On the back of this success, our directors decided to expand, and recognised a niche market perfect for us in Zimbabwe.  Chundu Island opened in November 2017 on the Zambezi River and will be a complementary destination to the Kruger Park. This will once again meet the needs of the enthusiastic eco-traveller by providing authentic, ethical and responsible experiences as an add-on destination to make the trip out to Vic Falls worthwhile (Chundu is only 21km from Vic Falls).  Guests can look forward to enjoying not only the incredible sights, but to experiencing island-style living, water activities and game drives and walks.  Once again, we have kept it real, wonderful and affordable.

Masuwe Lodge, our preferred partner in Victoria Falls offers the best of both bush and adventure and we have partnered with them to ensure that our guests are able to enjoy an all-round safari experience.

Seolo means “termite mound” and in true termite style you can look forward to further developments as we grow our business and our community.
