Pretoriuskop Camp, is situated in the south-western part of the Kruger National Park and is only 9 kilometres from Numbi Gate (60 kilometres from the Paul Kruger Gate and 50 kilometres from Skukuza Rest Camp). The surrounding vegetation is varied with some well-developed woodland, grassland and the granite dome of Shabeni Hill.
Pretoriuskop Camp is the oldest Rest Camp in the park and takes its name from the nearby kopje (hill) where Voortrekker, Willem Pretorius, a member of Carl Trichardt's 1848 expedition to Delagoa Bay, is buried. Between 1836 and 1860, groups of Voortrekkers investigated various possible routes through the Lowveld to the Portuguese harbours in Mozambique in an effort to establish trade.
During this safari program, you will spend the night at Pretoriuskop Restcamp located at the famous Kruger National Park. This tented safari camp offers an affordable and authentic safari experience where you will be hosted by local safari guides and hosts. This camp is an intimate safari camp which has 8 safari tents. All tents are equipped with comfortable twin beds, luxurious linen, electricity, camp chairs, carpeted flooring, and large windows with mosquito nets. There is also a fan to cool you down in summer and electric blankets to warm the cold winter evenings. The communal bathroom and safari tents are serviced daily. Moreover, each tent has a small deck looking onto the camp fire.

Freshen up, with time to pack.
I grew up in Pretoria and spent any spare time that I could get my hands on in the bush. After I finished school I worked in the UK as a chef but missed South Africa too much and returned to my love of the bush. I love all aspects of nature, not only the big game. I have a huge passion for the smaller animals (especially snakes) and really believe that looking for the smaller animals will usually lead you to the big ones. Tented Adventures is an awesome place to be as I get to live my dream and share my passion with new people every day.
I am the camp host at Pretoriuskop and my main duties involve cooking, cleaning as well as hosting guests. I love what I do, everyday I get to meet different people coming from across the world which is so fascinating. We get to share stories, and they often ask me for my recipes, because they so love what I cater for them. My plan is not to stay as a camp host, I want to grow and learn the industry become one of Tented Adenture's best safari guides as well as a top senior manager. With my charisma and the enthusiasm, I believe I have what it takes. Can't wait to meet you!
