Over the last 13 years, Rhino Africa has been repeatedly recognized as “Africa's Leading Luxury Safari Company”. To ensure exclusive access for our tour operations and to become involved in one more step of our clients' experiences, in 2010 Rhino Africa launched a specialized property division. Starting with the award winning luxury boutique hotel, MannaBay, we have begun creating luxurious properties across the continent's key destinations. Having conquered the Cape, Rhino Africa is proud to announce the launch of our brand new development, Silvan Safari, opening in the Sabi Sands region in November 2017.
Silvan Safari Lodge is conceptualized to redefine the notion of luxury safari, by providing guests with exclusive access to an authentic African bush experience paired with exceptional service. From waking to the resounding roar of the lion as the spectacular African sun rises over the midlands, to dipping in the crystal safari pool, champagne in hand, as the silhouetted landscape disappears with the sunset; Silvan Safari pushes the boundaries on an all-inclusive escape. Surrounded by lush vegetation on the outskirts of the Kruger National Park, Silvan Safari will boast six aesthetically pleasing modern suites each equipped with a private plunge pool. The main lodge, suspended in the indigenous treetops, provides majestic panoramic views of the Manyeleti River. The lodge will also host its very own spa, encapsulating the epitome of a luxurious safari experience.
To turn this sensational concept into a reality, we are seeking an artisanal Spa Therapist to handle all massages and treatment related activities, as per Silvan Safari Lodge's operational and treatment standards, in a safe and satisfying way. With a passion for people and a desire to soothe away the stresses of the day, the naturally intuitive Spa Therapist will leave guests feeling rejuvenated after a long day in the bush or kick-start their morning with an energising full body experience. The ideal candidate would have physical stamina, good health and work well under pressure, within a collaborative environment. We're searching for a compassionate, empathic individual with sophisticated communication skills and a positive attitude, to surpass guests' expectations.
Specific responsibilities include, but will not be limited to:
Providing individualised bodywork treatments and massage services that meet the guests' needs and expectations
Obtaining the guests' basic medical history, assessing guests' needs as well as any problems or conditions and suggesting appropriate therapy based on the guests' health

Handling emergency procedures and reporting any accidents to your manager
Attending all scheduled meetings, classes and training sessions and ensuring that knowledge required within Silvan Spa is passed on to co-workers
