See the Kruger Big 5 in a Nutshell

Join us for a short but memorable 2 Day and 1 Night Big 5 Kruger National Park experience – where nearly 2 million hectares of unrivalled diversity of life forms fuses with historical and archaeological sites. This is Africa and where your game viewing experiences await.

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.

You base is located within the Pretoriuskop Rest Camp in the famous Kruger National Park, home to Africa’s Big 5. Our tented safari camp offers an affordable authentic safari experience where you will be hosted by local safari guides.

Our intimate safari camp has 8 safari tents all equipped with comfortable beds, luxurious linen, electricity, camp chairs, carpeted flooring, large windows with mosquito nets; there is a large tented lounge and dining area. Our communal bathrooms (shared with the Pretoriuskop Rest Camp camping grounds) and safari tents are serviced daily and each tent has a small deck facing the park.

The safari tents have two single beds (can be converted into a double/king) and a fan to cool you down in summer and electric blankets to warm the cold winter evenings.

With regards to drinks – we only provide tea/coffee/water at our camp. Please do bring your own refreshments (alcoholic too) (although there is a well-stocked shop in Pretoriuskop should beverage and food items be required). We have a fridge to keep all the items cold.

Our ablution facilities are within the Pretoriuskop camping site, close to us, and they are communal – we do provide bath towels.

Guests can enjoy the swimming pool facilities at Pretoriuskop – but please bring your own swimming towels for these purposes.
