Mopani Camp (restcamp /north western Kruger)

 

Our vehicle

18 TO 19 SEPTEMBER 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 cottage that sleeps two people.

 

Sirheni Bushveld Lodge (restcamp/northern Kruger)

19 TO 22 SEPTEMBER 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 a private en-suite  cottage under thatch that sleeps two people. Fresh linen and towels are included.

 

Punda Maria Camp (restcamp / far northern Kruger)

22 TO 24 SEPTEMBER 2020 (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 some of its thriving local inhabitants, alongside wild dog, elephant and lion. The diminutive suni antelope can also be best viewed from The Mahonie Loop, known to be the best venue for this in the entire park. Pafuri plays host to many of the area's nyala, impala, and occasional bushbuck.

Vervet monkey, baboon, hippo and Nile crocodile are to be found in the area and on the riverbed. Early arrivers heading down Nyala Drive may well be lucky enough to see bush pig.

Accommodation is an en-suite unit (includes fresh linen and towels) that sleeps two people.

 

Shingwedzi Camp (restcamp / north eastern Kruger)

24 TO 26 SEPTEMBER 2020 (2 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.  

 

Letaba restcamp (north Kruger)

26 TO 28 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 one-bedroomed cottage (serviced; fresh linen and towels) that sleeps two people.

 

Olifants, Nshawu Guest House (restcamp / north eastern Kruger)

28 to 30 SEPTEMBER TO 1 OCTOBER 2020 (3 NIGHTS)

This camp is ideally situated in the central Kruger. Our drives and activities include several dams, open savanna and thorn thickets with some amazing riverbeds and pools to explore. Elephants, lion and buffalo are prolific in this area as well as the endangered cheetah.

Nighttime at Olifants plays host to unbelievable African wildlife sounds, and you are sure to see many animals at the waterhole by simply sitting in the game viewing hide for an hour or two. Bird watching is also prolific. A resident troop of baboons is always seen foraging around the camp in the evenings.

Accommodation is a one-bedroomed private en-suite cottage (fresh linen and towels included) in private Nshawu guest house that sleeps 8 people with your own private breathtaking views of the Kruger.

 

Departure day

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