South West Kruger Camp
Berg-en-Dal is situated on the bank of the Matjulu Spruit with a view of softly undulating hills to the east.
On the northern and southern sides dry riverbeds and a dam border the camp. There are large trees along the streams and dry riverbeds. Special care has been taken to preserve the natural vegetation in the camp. Berg-en-Dal is also the only camp set in a rugged mountain environment.
With walls built from authentic buffalo dung, Camp Shawu reflects the Africa described by famous explorers of colonial times. Located in the 20 000 hectare private concession in the south-eastern section of the Kruger National Park, the camp has five large rooms overlooking the Mpanamana Dam. All the rooms are equipped with romantic ball-and-claw baths, a sitting area facing the fireplace, ceiling fans and outside shower. Large verandas provide the ideal location to view the game coming down to the dam to drink. The central facility has a lounge, indoor and outdoor dining area and a splash pool. Camp Shawu offers walking trails on request, where guests can experience a typical old-fashioned safari first-hand. Safaris in open four-wheel-drive vehicles are also available.
Mopani Rest Camp is one of the largest camps in the north, yet it doesn’t feel this way at all. The bungalows are positioned with lots of vegetation in between, so the bush hasn’t been compromised as much in the construction process. This creates the sense of being constantly surrounded by nature. The intimate feel of the camp is further enhanced by the fact that Mopani has two satellite camps, thereby dispersing the guests and giving everyone their own little spot in the veld.
Olifants Rest Camp
The Olifants Camp is situated on top of a hill, providing amazing views over the Olifants River. The name Olifants is derived from the Afrikaans word for Elephant, an animal regularly spotted in this area. This Kruger Park lodging is warm and welcoming, where comfortable accommodation and great wildlife opportunities are the order of the day.
Singita Boulders Lodge is set along the banks of the Sand River in Singita’s privately owned reserve within the Sabi Sand Reserve. The lodge is a celebration of the tranquillity, space, and light which flows throughout this incredibly vast area. Inspired by the geometry of the boulders on which it rests, Boulders Lodge is an inviting oasis where organic interiors integrate seamlessly with the raw African beauty outside.
Named after the Tsonga word for ‘cemetery’ that describes a type of elephant graveyard near to the camp, Sirheni Bushveld Camp is located on the edge of the Kruger National Park’s northern plains. Running past to the Mphongolo River's Sirheni Dam, the camp's accommodation facilities and two bird hides survey a wide variety of passing game and birds. Guests may be awakened to the sounds of of a lion making at kill at the dam, and a resident leopard is often seen coming down to drink at the dam.
Skukuza is the Kruger National Park's largest rest camp and administrative headquarters. It is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. The camp is well foliaged and there are some lofty trees along the river’s edge. Activities and facilities are diverse, as are the animals and plants found both within the camp and in the surrounding areas.
Talamati is a Xitsonga word that means "Lots of Water”. Yet, despite the meaning of the name, the river is actually dry.
The clay soil however, acts as a giant sponge holding a vast reservoir of underground water and keeping the vegetation lush all year round. Talamati Bushveld Camp is situated in a large open valley, affording superb game viewing opportunities. The luxuriant grassveld in the area attracts large herds of grazers, and the predators never lurk too far behind.
