Visitor Tips

  1. All accommodation, ablution and kitchen facilities are serviced by cleaning staff on a daily basis.
  2. Day visitors will no longer be allowed to bring or consume alcohol in public areas such as parking lots, picnic sites, wildlife viewing areas or roads, gates and all other areas designated as public.
  3. As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.
  4. Most rest-camps have retail facilities and restaurants. Tariff prices do not include meals.
  5. Plan your trip – do not try and cover too great a distance. The Kruger National Park is a massive tract of land and frequently visitors try to cover too much ground. Slow travel and regular stopping produces much more action than covering a lot of ground.
  6. Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods.
