Guests stay in bungalows in Pretoriuskop Rest Camp in southern Kruger National Park.  

Pretoriuskop Camp is one of the oldest camps in the Kruger National Park and located along an ancient explorers highway that’s rich in history. Much of its rich cultural heritage has been retained by keeping the traditional round huts but modern facilities have been added such as a restaurant, shop, petrol station and one of the best swimming pools in the Park.  

The units are traditional 2-sleeper bungalows known as Kruger rondavels (round huts).

  • Breakfasts and dinners are prepared in a camp kitchen in a private section of Pretoriuskop Rest Camp and served in our open-air dining tent. It’s a lovely way to experience the African bush, dining under the stars around a campfire. If it’s raining, dinner will be served in the camp restaurant. 
  • Pretoriuskop Rest Camp has an onsite restaurant for take-aways and a Park shop for drinks and snacks. Stock up before leaving for the 3-hour game drive but please note; no alcohol may be drunk on the open safari vehicles during game drives.
