Maroela is a small camp situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2km east of Orpen Rest 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.
