Pretoriuskop is one of our favourite camps, it has the most fabulous pool and last year we saw 7 wild dog about 3km from camp and we were with them for about 20 mins on our own!! :D
we've had fab rhino sightings also
My girls love this area because of the history of 'Jock of the Bushveld'
It may be hard viewing in the summer time but we have had some fantastic sights there.

Enjoy your trip. :thumbs_up:

We stayed in P/kop for 2 nights recently and did see a lot of monkeys and some Baboons in camp, even saw some young Monkeys playing and a little baboon joined in with them and played happily for ages. :wink:

The staff were trying to chase them with a catapult but as soon as his back was turned they were back again.

We made sure our doors and windows were closed at all times even when sitting outside on the little verandah, which was just as well as we had a big male Monkey come boldly up to the door several times and peer in, then jump up on the window sills trying each and every window in turn.
He wasn't at all scared of us altho we didn't do anything to aggravate him just in case.

ECV hello, we stayed in a hut last July, we found bedding and towels,a small cake of soap and two glasses and two extra blankets, we moved the table and chairs outside so we could sit around the braai and eat, we only stayed for one night but we had a good nights sleep as well as being very warm, hope you have a wonderful visit to the best place on earth

Not to worry Helsinki, the EB2 huts have a fridge and aircon - so there are plugpoints. And every hut has its own braai. :D

Enjoy your trip! :thumbs_up:

Help Needed

Unread post by jts » Fri Apr 26, 2013 12:28 pm

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,

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!
