Introduction

Maroela is a small camp situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2km east of Orpen Rest Camp.

This camp is one of only two camps in the Park that exclusively caters for guests with caravans and for campers. There are no other pre-erected accommodation structures in this camp. Close to the fence, visitors can indulge in watching a variety of animals that visit a small watering hole. There is also a rustic viewing platform overlooking the Timbavati River.
