The 2-day Kruger Camping Safari is the ideal option for travellers on a tight time schedule.
It’s a chance to explore the southern section of the iconic Kruger Park and get a taste for why it’s one of the most popular safari destinations in Africa.
Guests stay in canvas safari tents in a private campsite in the historic Pretoriuskop Rest Camp. It’s the perfect choice for an authentic safari experience, with views of the beautiful woodland surrounds.
Pretoriuskop Rest Camp
Pretoriuskop Rest Camp is located in the southern section of the Kruger National Park which is renowned for its incredible biodiversity and high concentration of wildlife and birds. It’s surrounded by kiaat woodlands and savanna grasslands which is home to the Big 5 and an array of antelope.
Accommodation at Pretoriuskop Rest Camp ranges from budget-friendly campsites for tents and caravans and self-catering bungalows to family cottages and luxury guest houses. A recent addition is a luxury tented campsite that is situated on the fence overlooking the surrounding leafy woodlands.
There is a fully-stocked convenience store at Pretoriuskop Rest Camp and the restaurant which offers tourists simple, affordable meals. Pretoriuskop Rest Camp is best known for its spectacular swimming pool that’s built up against a flat granite boulder.
