Pretoriuskop Camp is situated in the south-western part of the Kruger National Park and is only nine kilometers from Numbi Gate (60 kilometers from the Paul Kruger Gate and 50 kilometers 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 harbors 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 that has eight 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 at the campfire.
