Skukuza Rest Camp: Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre

Skukuza is the largest rest camp in the park. The rest camp is situated in the southern part of the park on the bank of the Sabie River.

Makings of the Centre

The conference has been built as part of SANParks’ commercialisation strategy which was adopted in 2001 and which also included the need to diversify the product offering. The main target market for the conference facility is the South African business sector.

This state of the art facility which consists of the main hall and 4 breakaway rooms offers facilities for up to 500 people. It is set in the heart of Skukuza rest camp and is accessible by road via the Paul Kruger Gate. It presents a unique opportunity for a relaxed conferencing atmosphere with its own ambience.

The naming of the Centre

The conference centre as a whole is named after Corporal Nombolo Mdhluli who served the Kruger National Park during the period from 1919 until his retirement in 1958 (nearly 40 years of service). His exact age was unknown, even to himself. He started working for the Kruger National Park (then still known as the Sabi Game Reserve) at the old Rolle ranger post, which was a railway halt on the old Selati railway line some 55 km north-west of Skukuza. The Main Hall and the four breakaway rooms are named after the Big 5. The breakaway rooms are all the same size and two of the breakaway rooms can be joined together and used as one venue.

  • Main Hall – Ndlopfu
  • Breakaway room 1 – Ingwe
