Medical Practitioner Skukuza : 24 hour phone line 0137355638

This number is on the travel document issued at the gate.

There are two doctors, and their rooms are marked on the camp map. It is best to call and make an appointment, as they also serve the staff village, unless of course, it is an emergency.

There are directions to their consulting room leading from the split in front of the conference center.

We urgently needed medical aid one Sunday morning some years ago.
Having departed Skukuza early that morning in order to have a breakfast at Tshokwane on our way to Shingwedzi we were possibly a little too hasty having our breakfast.
We had finished eating at one of those stupid combination tables, the ones with seats on either side of the tabletop. My wife not seeing an ugly protruding nail on the lower support plank, tore a deep and long gash in her calf. I applied first aid but realised that she urgently needed stitches for the deep cut.
We backtracked and on the way phoned the doctors rooms at Skukuza to be told that the doctor was on a short game view but would be contacted and probably be waiting for us when we arrived.
Luckily there were no speed cops on duty that morning, because I beat the doctor to his rooms where we received first class medical help.
In the end all ended well and we still had a lovely trip, but my wife, to this day has an ugly scar to testify to our ill-fated brekkie at the old Tshokwane picnic site
