Mopani Camp (restcamp /north western Kruger)

11 to 12 May 2022 (1 NIGHT)

The pervasive Mopani tree found in the Pioneer Dam area of Kruger National Park lends both its aesthetic and its name to this primary rest camp. Thatched buildings with rock faced walls blend seamlessly into the natural environment, materials used to construct these buildings including rough stone, wood and thatching-grass.

Huddled against and overlooking the banks of the dam, visitors can take advantage of the winter trend for park animals to move towards water sources as they migrate towards the dam's edge, providing excellent viewing opportunities.

The Tropic of Capricorn loop and the Nshawu pans areas allow for game viewing from open plains which host blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra, buffalo and the rarer tsessebe, as well as the smaller Black-Backed Jackal and caracal.

Accommodation is an en-suite cottage that sleeps two people.

 

Shingwedzi Camp (restcamp / north eastern Kruger)

12 to 15 May 2022 (3 NIGHTS)

Centered in a quiet clearing along the banks of the Shingwedzi river, this eponymous camp provides a well-balanced Kruger National Park accommodation offering of luxury holiday and authentic, outdoor camping trip. Shrouded in mopane trees, the area produces sightings of waterbuck, nyala, kudu, and elephant, as well as a variety of bird species. While the river does dry up in summer months, animal sightings are more frequent in winter as groups challenge each other over quickly disappearing pools left in the wake of the disappearing river.

Accommodation is in a private en-suite unit that sleeps two people.  

 

Pafuri Border Rest Camp; Guest House (far northern Kruger)      

15 TO 17 May 2022 (2 NIGHTS)

The baobab dominates the skyline and once you reach it you notice that the road starts to wind down into the Luvuvhu River Valley and the Pafuri region of Kruger and into another world. Land of giants, place of silence, ancient space a description alone is not enough to capture the place that is Pafuri. This is a place that whispers the Africa of the past, where the roar of a lion carries across a land of ancient baobabs, gorges and fantasia.

The ground is littered with the tools of our early ancestors, each stone telling a story. Crooks Corner, the infamous point of connection of three countries, played a role in the colourful recent past of the area. Accommodation is in the private Mockford House that sleeps 8 people in 4 bedrooms – three of them en-suite. The guest house boasts a braai area, camp swimming pool, veranda, lounge and dining room.

Sirheni Bushveld Lodge (restcamp/northern Kruger)

17 to 19 May 2022 (2 NIGHTS)

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 a lion making at kill at the dam, and a resident leopard is often seen coming down to drink at the dam.

Accommodation is a private en-suite cottage under thatch that sleeps two people. Fresh linen and towels are included.

 

Letaba restcamp (north Kruger)

19 TO 20 May 2022 (1 NIGHT)

The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The character of Letaba Camp depends heavily on the tall shady trees (Sycamore Fig, Natal Mahogany, Sausage Tree and Apple Leaf), expansive lawns and indigenous gardens where tame Bushbuck wander. Visit in winter and you will find the gardens a riot of colour, with several species of Aloe and the Impala lily in full bloom at your accommodation in Kruger Park. Elephant, hippo, crocodile and lion are prevalent. You may get a chance to see waterbuck, elephant, kudu, buffalo and impala in this region.

Accommodation is an en-suite cottage (serviced; fresh linen and towels) that sleeps two people.

Satara restcamp (central Kruger)

20 to 22 May 2022 (2 NIGHTS)

Situated in an excellent game viewing area, Satara has relatively open bushland and the game is plentiful and diverse. Satara camp itself has a rustic charm, with the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara camp is well wooded, and the birdlife is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. Owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roar of lion.

Accommodation consists of a private en-suite unit (includes fresh linen and towels) that sleeps two people.

 

Lower Sabie (restcamp/southeastern Kruger)

22 to 25 May 2022 (3 NIGHTS)

Large numbers of game are attracted to the abundance of water, sweet grass and foliage in the vicinity of Lower Sabie Rest Camp, giving rise to a diversity of game, almost unequalled anywhere else in the park. The area is also rich in lion, cheetah, elephant, hippopotamus, rhino, herds of buffalo up to 800 strong, and is known for its high density of warthog.

Accommodation consists of and en-suite private cottage that sleeps two people, which is fully serviced (fresh linen and towels) under beautiful, thatched roofs overlooking the Sabie river. 

Departure day

We always fit in an early morning game drive, and of course, a hearty breakfast before departure to Nelspruit airport.
