Kruger during December.

Unread post by Andries Peyper » Mon Jun 13, 2016 8:46 am

Good morning.
Before getting to Kruger in December. We will arrive in Kruger in just over a month from now. 14 lovely days just where we want to be. Also new this year to me and my wife, is a round of golf. Looking forward to seeing animals close by. Any advise on gof at Skukuza?
Okay then, back to Kruger during December. This will be our first Christmas and New year in the Park. This will also be a first camping for some family members. My questions is, why are there still so many stands available now. Maybe to hot? Another thing, can camp management arrange 3 stands close together or is it a case of first come.
So our countdown start today.
Thank you.

Andries

December is definitely the hottest and busiest month in the park, especially around Christmas and New year. I would recommend that you e-mail the Hospitality manager at the Camp you are staying at, and reserve stands close together. I have done that numerous times, and they always allocate me stands close together.

Andries for info on Skukuza Golf club and restaurant
Which camp do you plan on staying in for December?
The only one you can pre book a stand is Tsendze, which is booked via Mopani camp, all the others are first come first served!
Also some info on Kruger in December

You can try the hospitality manager to keep stands, but depending on your dates I don't know if they will be able to. It would mean closing of a section and they would have to section that off from beginning of Dec holidays which would be unfair on others. Because different people come and leave daily you cannot guarantee sites next to each other.

RobertT thanks for the info. In that case we will see what happens when we enter Berg en Dal on the 24th of December. Maybe we get some stands close together.
