Pretoria to Skukuza Camp, Kruger National Park

Hippo at Lake Panic Hide near Skukuza, Kruger National Park

On the way to Skukuza.

Skukuza is the Largest Rest Camp and the administratve headquarters of the Kruger National Park.

We entered the Park via the Phabeni Gate which is just 38kms from Skukuza,

A stop at the Lake Panic Hide a few kilometres from Skukuza is a good start to your Kruger adventure.

Skukuza to Olifants Camp, Kruger National Park

Olifants Camp and surrounds

Olifants Camp is situated on top of a hill which towers over the Olifants River. The views from the lookout platforms allow one to see the river below, just as an eagle would see it from the sky.

The surrounding area offers plenty of elephant, hippo, lion, hyena, as well as panoramic views over the Olifants River. A visit to the Elephant Museum at Letaba Rest Camp is well worthwhile.

Olifants to Tamboti Tented Camp, Kruger National Park

Tamboti Tented Camp.

Tamboti is a satellite camp of Orpen Rest Camp. it is situated in the south western section of the Kruger National Park. There is no shop and you need to obtain everything you need when you check inat Orpen Camp. All the tents overlook the Timbavati River and the sunsets are breath-taking.

It is an ideal location to start your trip through the Blyde River Canyon.
