Rest Camps In the Kruger National Park. Includes Private Camps

Kruger National Park Rest CampsThe main camps are well known and with the exception of Crocodile Bridge (for some unknown reason) all have restaurants. It is best to refer to the SANParks website for up to date information on occupancy for these camps. On the map the yellow dots are the camp locations. I have shown these relative to rivers rather than roads since much of the better game viewing is associated with the proximity to important river systems. The LIGHT BLUE represents perennial rivers and the DARK BLUE seasonal rivers in the Kruger. For river names check here … the information for each camp is shown below and this information is organised from north to south. Read the journey taken to record all this information

Bushveld camps are smaller and off the beaten track. It is possible to make single or block bookings for these camps. This type of bushveld camp does not have shops or restaurants and only bona-fide ‘residents” are allowed access. All units have a fridge and are equipped with cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and a stove. All units have private ablution facilities. Communal freezing facilities for ice and food are provided at Biyamiti, Shimuwini, Talamati and Sirheni.
