We (SO,myself,LO and her boyfriend) have just returned from spending 5 fantastic nights in Pretoriuskop, we booked 2 huts (number 71 and 72), they were spotless and well maintained,the abultions were kept clean constantly, hot water was available everytime we went to shower, the kitchen areas were clean everytime we went to use the stove and to wash dishes,the shop was well stocked and the staff were very helpful and also very pleasant. Well done Pretoriuskop, you will remain close to our hearts forever because you were the first camp that we were ever privileged to visit and we will continue to visit you every year.

Hi all :D

I need some help with information on the six sleeper units at Pretoriuskop, those that have the two bedrooms with three beds each separated by the bathroom (BG6). Under accommodation types it says with either bath OR shower. There are only two of these units in the camp - does anyone know which number has the shower?

Sorry if the question has been asked before but I can't seem to find the information on it :redface:

I was also a newbie to the Pretoriuskop area last year, and I was amazed at how many dirt roads there are.
Have a good look at the map, and you can plan some routes.
It is an area well worth visiting, though like anywhwere in any park, sightings cannot be guaranteed!! :thumbs_up:

You may be lucky enough to see Sable which are in that area. :thumbs_up:

Hope you have a wonderful trip. :dance:

Hi Yoda,

No better place in Kruger than the pool at Pretoriuskop -- your kids will spend hours there in the heat of the day. Go for an early morning breakfast drive to
* Afsaal... and return via transport dam.
* Mathekenyani granite hill to stretch legs and run around a bit.
* Lake Panic/Skukuza Nursery (kids can move around there a bit + lovely picnic table in the shade)
* Albasini ruins --perfect way to start the day.
Loaf in camp till 3:30 pm and enjoy an evening drive when its cooler...
God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten

I see that a cattle grid has been put in at the entrance and was wondering if the resident Impala have sadly been 'hoofed' out? They were not around the night we stayed there :(

Last November I sa wild dogs getting as close as 10 meters towards the camp gate. They were definetely looking for prey. I have no idea what would have happened if they had seen some Impies insight the camp :big_eyes: I think it makes absolute sense to keep the Impalas outside the camp!

Hi

We are booked into a BG6 unit at Pretoriuskop, I would like to know if the bathroom facilities are directly accessible from the sleeping areas or are they only accessible via the veranda

Hi andrew1nesbitt.

We stayed in a BG6 before, and the bathroom was only accesable via the verandah.

Hope this helps.

HI Helpful Formites:
Trying to book the best possible accommodation in Pretoriuskop (June 2015) but see the map and ID's are a bit confusing. I have booked BD2M thinking that is as near to the perimeter as you can get..., but now thinking I may be wrong. Can you tell me what is the best accommodation in this camp and what is the ID for that location and where on the map it is??

Thank you!!!
Dana

Hi Dana

We stayed in 133, and I would say 134 is even better as next to the fence. But any of those, 117 -134 are nicely situated.

I think the one D is for a double bed, and the V for a view.
133 etc

map

I was just browsing through this thread and I saw those photos of the fire. Can anyone tell me what caused it and how much of the camp was damaged? It seems as thought it was quite an inferno.

As far as I recall, it was lightning and pretty much that entire restaurant block was destroyed.
I know I have a book somewhere that describes it, will try and look it up.
