Mopani restamp (north-western Kruger)

20 to 21 September 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. 

Huddled against and overlooking the banks of the dam, guests 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.

This area allows for game viewing from open plains that hosts blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra, buffalo and the rare tsessebe as well as the smaller black-backed jackal and caracal.

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

 

Sirheni Bushveld Lodge (northern Kruger)

21 to 24 September 2022 (3 NIGHTS)

Sirheni 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.

 

Punda Maria restcamp (far northern Kruger)    

24 to 26 September 2022 (2 NIGHTS)

Punda Maria camp is situated in the Sandveld region, often referred to as the botanical garden of the Kruger National Park. The camp itself is recognised as the best opportunity to witness the elusive Nyala antelope, and bird watching in the area is without equal.

The area notes kudu, nyala, buffalo and Sharpe’s grysbok as just some thriving local inhabitants, alongside wild dog, elephant and lion.

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

Shingwedzi restcamp (north-eastern Kruger)

26 to 28 September 2022 (2 NIGHTS)

Centered in a quiet clearing along the banks of the Shingwedzi river.

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 small pools left in the wake of the disappearing river.

Accommodation is a private en-suite unit that sleeps two people (serviced with fresh linen and towels).

Letaba restcamp (northern Kruger)

28 to 29 September 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.

The character of Letaba Camp depends heavily on the tall shady trees, 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. Elephant, hippo, crocodile and lion are prevalent. You may see waterbuck, elephant, kudu, buffalo and impala in this region.

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

Departure day

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