Meet and greet

Mopani Camp (restcamp /northwestern Kruger)

(1 NIGHT)

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 serviced (fresh linen and towels) cottage that sleeps two people.

 

Shingwedzi Camp (restcamp / north eastern Kruger)

(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 a private en-suite serviced unit that sleeps two people.  

Punda Maria Camp (restcamp / far northern Kruger)

(2 NIGHTS)

Punda Maria camp is situated in the Sandveld region.

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. 

Accommodation is an en-suite serviced unit that sleeps two people.

Sirheni Bushveld Lodge (restcamp/northern Kruger)

(2 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 serviced cottage under thatch that sleeps two people. 

 

Letaba restcamp (north Kruger)

(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.

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. Aloes attract a variety of birds including the white-bellied and Marico sunbird, crested barbet, black-headed oriole and black-eyed bulbul.

Accommodation is in a private one-bedroomed cottage (serviced) 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.
