Accommodation

PRETORIUSKOP REST CAMP ǀ SANParks accommodation in Kruger National Park

Private tented camp, sleeping up to 16 people

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 modern tented campsite that is private and 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. 

Children of all ages are welcome at Pretoriuskop Rest Camp.

GREENFIRE GAME LODGE ǀ Luxury accommodation in Balule Private Game Reserve

9 deluxe suites, sleeping up to 18 adult guests

Greenfire Game Lodge is a dramatically revamped ecotourism destination located on Balule Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger. The 50 000-hectare reserve is one of 18 unfenced private reserves that fall within the Greater Kruger, which lies adjacent to the iconic Kruger National Park. Game roams freely between the two vast wilderness regions so you’re guaranteed incredible Big 5 wildlife sightings.

The luxury safari lodge is best known for its striking contemporary architectural design, isolated location and magnificent views over a seasonally-dry Mohlabetsi River. No effort has been spared to deliver an exclusive safari experience where the ultra-chic facilities of a modern safari lodge blend seamlessly with its stunning natural surrounds.

Each ensuite chalet lies nestled in a lush riverine woodland area, carefully positioned on the escarpment so they feel completely private. Floor-to-roof glass-fronted lounges lead out onto a private deck with panoramic views of the Balule bushveld. It’s an eco-conscious lodge so there is no air-conditioning but the suites are cleverly designed to allow air to breeze in and cool it down, and in winter sunlight pours in to warm up the suites.

Guests need to be 12 years and older to stay at Greenfire Game Lodge. Children aged 12-18 years are charged as adults.
