Berg-en-Dal

Berg-en-Dal

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.

Letaba Camp

Letaba Camp

Letaba River Camp

Situated alongside the Letaba River, the camp boast loads of benches from which to watch waterbuck, hippo and crocodile in the water. Around sundown, these benches are packed out. You can have drinks served to you there, even though the viewing area sits on the outside of the restaurant.

Lower Sabie Camp

Lower Sabie Camp

South East Camps

In this rest camp, the  bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the  most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides  generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants  produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at  different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the  endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River  establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle.

Mopani Camp

Mopani Camp

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 Camp

Olifants Camp

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.

Orpen Camp

Orpen Camp

Western Camp

Orpen Rest Camp is positioned on the western border of the Kruger
National Park. The name of this camp originated from the person's surname who donated the
land. The untouched open plainsand scattered trees
are covered by sweet grass which the animals
cannot withstand and therefore it attracts many browsers. If
you feel lucky, this is a perfect area to see a cheetah, lion and leopard.

Punda Maria Camp

Punda Maria Camp

Being the northernmost outpost of the Kruger National Park, Punda Maria Rest Camp seems to serve as a first or a last stop for many visitors. But don’t let this turn your stay at this intimate camp into an overnight one, because there are two things that make Punda Maria entirely unique – the accommodation is different from all the other camps and so is the vegetation surrounding the camp.

Roodewal Bush Lodge

Roodewal Bush Lodge

Roodewal Bush Lodge is a secluded, private lodge situated 44 kilometres 27.3 miles) north of Satara, on the banks of the Timbavati River. This unique Kruger Park accommodation boasts individual sleeping units, ideal for wonderful celebrations in the bush.

Satara

Satara

Central Camps

Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion.

Shingwedzi Camp

Shingwedzi Camp

Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Park and is the largest of the northern region’s 3 restcamps. It is a somewhat old-fashioned (though modern), friendly camp of lovely trees, impalala lilies and bungalows with shady verandahs.

A few scenic game drives from the camp is available, like the one following the Shingwedzi River in a south-westerly direction towards Tshange lookout point, or south-east  towards the Kanniedood Dam and Crocodile Pool near the Mocambique border. The riverine forest around and north of the camp is home to a number of Kruger Park’s leopard community, as well as a variety of other game species.

Skukuza

Skukuza

Kruger HeadQuarters

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

Talamati

PVT Camp

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.

Pretoriuskop Camp

Pretoriuskop Camp

It is immediately apparent to any visitor that Pretoriuskop is unique as brilliant red trees adorn the camp, pre-dating the decision to make exclusive use of indigenous plants in laying out rest camp gardens. Nostalgia prompted an exception to the rule for Pretoriuskop, the Kruger National Park's oldest rest camp, and exotic flowering plants were allowed to stay, enhancing the strong sense of the past that is so pervasive.

Crocodile Bridge Camp

Crocodile Bridge Camp

Crocodile Bridge is a small and delightful camp situated in the south-eastern corner of the Kruger National Park, on the banks of the Crocodile River. The Camp also serves as an entrance gate into the Park and is only 10 kilometres from Komatipoort and the N4 national highway.

Renowned for its dense and varied population of lion prides, Crocodile Bridge is tucked into the Southeastern corner of the Kruger Park, and shares the northern bank of its name sake, Crocodile River. The area exhibits genuine San rock art, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the history and culture of Crocodile Bridge
