Visitor Tips

  • All accommodation, ablution and kitchen facilities are serviced by cleaning staff on a daily basis.
  • As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.
  • Most rest camps have retail facilities and restaurants. Tariff prices do not include meals.
  • 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.
  • Besides a bank (only open Monday to Friday and Saturday morning) at Skukuza and an ATM at Skukuza and Letaba, no cash withdrawal facilities are available in the Park.
  • 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. The restrictions will not apply to overnight visitors who will be allowed to bring in own alcohol for consumption in the privacy of their booked accommodation and the restaurants. Like day visitors, overnight visitors will be bound by the same rules of not drinking in public.
  • Vehicle fuel is available in the main rest camps in Kruger. Fuel stations within the Kruger National Park accept legitimate petrol/fuel/garage cards, any VISA/MasterCard cards or cash as a form of payment.
  • Currently bedding is supplied in all accommodation.
  • Cooking Utensils and Refrigeration are provided in most accommodation units. Exceptions will be indicated when booking.
  • All rates can be discounted at the discretion of the park or rest camp management. (The travel trade will not be subject to these discounts but rather to the negotiated agreement. Pensioners attention is drawn to existing pensioner discounts.)
  • A maximum of only one caravan or mobile home or park home is allowed on each campsite.
  • Consult our reservation staff or watch press for details for out of season discounts and promotions.
  • Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods.
  • Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, a hat and sunscreen lotion. Also remember to take along medicines such as anti-histamine and lotion for insect stings and bites.
  • Do not leave any food unattended, as thieving monkeys and baboons are a constant threat.
