Mopani Camp (restcamp /north western Kruger)

Our vehicle

21 TO 22 AUGUST 2020 (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 a private en-suite two-bedroomed cottage that sleeps four people.

 

Shingwedzi Camp (restcamp / north eastern Kruger)

22 TO 25 AUGUST 2020 (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 two private en-suite serviced units that each sleep two people.  

 

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

25 TO 27 AUGUST 2020 (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 - no description is 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)

27 TO 30 AUGUST 2020 (3 NIGHTS)

Sirheni Bushveld Lodge 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 two private en-suite cottages under thatch that each sleep two people. Fresh linen and towels are included.

 

Letaba restcamp (north Kruger)

30 AUGUST TO 1 SEPTEMBER 2020 (2 NIGHTS)

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. The Aloes attract a variety of birds, including the White Bellied and Marico Sunbird, Crested Barbet, Blackheaded Oriole and Black Eyed Bulbul.

Accommodation is in a private en-suite two-bedroomed cottage (serviced; fresh linen and towels) that sleeps four people.

 

Roodewal Bush Lodge (bush lodge/northern Kruger)

1 TO 3 SEPTEMBER 2020 (2 NIGHTS)

 

Situated 44km north of Satara, on the banks of the Timbavati River, Roodewal is unique as it features the privacy of each individual sleeping unit, that makes it ideal for parties, corporate incentives, and small wedding parties. The whole camp can be occupied by the party that makes the booking, and the units are spaced to offer privacy to each guest. Another lovely feature at Roodewal Bush Lodge in Kruger National Park is the private viewing deck, built on stilts which overlooks the Timbavati River.

 

The en-suite bungalows are serviced with fresh linen and towels. The entire camp is booked out and can sleep 18 people in total in several en-suite bedroom cottages.

 

Orpen restcamp (restcamp/north western Kruger)

3 TO 4 SEPTEMBER 2020 (1 NIGHT)

The area around the camp allows for watchings the nomadic Senegal (Lesser Black-winged) Plover, and, on a few occasions, Montagu's Harrier. White-faced and Comb (Knob-billed) Ducks, Little Grebe (Dabchick) and Lesser Moorhen, African Rail and African Crake, as well as Wooly-necked, Marabou, Open-billed (African Openbill), White and Black storks may all be seen in the camp and surrounding areas. Addtionally, the camp is home to a wealth of raptors, shrikes, nightjars and owls.
Your accommodation consists of two x two-bedded en-suite units that each sleep two people, serviced with fresh linen and towels.

Departure day

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