We have been sampling his wares for over a month now, and with another fortnight to go I am delighted to report that everything we have eaten has been of excellent quality: tender, flavourful and reasonably priced.
Keep up the good work Oom Kallie!


Oooh that sounds promising. Where is his butcher shop? Do they do game?

Hi!
For the last two years I have been able to find camp chairs in the park. I am flying from the States so cannot bring one. I have found them at Lataba and at Satara shops. Hopefully they now all carry them.

Also - it is correct that if you fly into KMIA as opposed to Skukuza airport you will have more rental car options but then you must drive the N4 which I hate personally. I prefer to fly into Skukuza and hire a car from Avis. You can prebook the car on their web site.

The shops have been upgraded and have really nice stocks of food and other needs. Of late I have found that once in the park there have been no needs to leave for any reason until it's sadly time to fly back to the States.

Enjoy your trip.

Bottled water in Kruger camp stores?

Unread post by Schoemanskloof » Mon Aug 14, 2017 1:39 am

Good evening/morning - not many nights until we get to enjoy our time in Kruger again. We haven't been for awhile, and wonder if there is a reliable source of bottled-water in the camp shops? Hopefully large containers (gallons, here in the US) we can buy frequently, at all of the camps with shops.

We assume that there is bottled-water (large containers) in the PnP-type stores in Phalaborwa. If that is not correct, please let us know as well!
One of our party has a weak stomach (traveled Europe and had stomach issues frequently) and is worried about where to get bottled water while in the park.

Thank, sincerely,
-ljr.

Yes, there is always a good supply of bottled water in the park shops. You can also buy 5l of water at Pick n Pay.

But, Kruger drinking water is of a high standard. But travelling from the US you will find the bottle water inexpensive.

Also, I suggest packing some tummy meds. I always keep Imodium with us as you can buy basic medication in the park shops but not for upset stomachs.

Fermented water does go down well on a hot sunny day :)
