During this two-day safari, you'll be accommodated for one night in a hut with two beds, at Pretoriuskop Rest Camp. Pretoriuskop is the oldest rest camp in Kruger National Park. The design and layout of the camp, as well as the style of the accommodation, easily give away the age of the camp. But although it has a rich and interesting history, Pretoriuskop has been brought up to date and it remains a very popular camp for overnight guests.
One of the most memorable styles of accommodation that you’ll find in the camp are the huts. They are beautifully laid out in circles, giving you a sense of community within the camp. There are 30 huts available and they sleep between two to six people. These huts have no bathrooms or kitchens. Instead, you will need to rely on the communal facilities.
It is always important to remember where you are. You are in the Kruger and it is wild even if the camp is seemingly calm. You need to keep your eyes open at all times for some of the other creatures which often sneak into the camp unseen. When walking anywhere, be on the lookout for snakes, spiders, and scorpions. They’ll generally stay well out of your way but it’s best to always be aware of what is around you.
Accommodation level: Budget
A few wilderness trails surrounding the camp
A licensed restaurant and cafeteria known to offer refreshing, affordable meals
A stunning natural rock pool for guests to cool off during the summer months
A variety of different accommodation units fit with modern furnishings and basic amenities
