Pretoriuskop Restcamp

Game Reserve And Bush Lodge Accommodation in Kruger Park

Named after a nearby hill under which Voortrekker Willem Pretorius, of Carl Trichardt's 1848 expedition to Delagoa Bay, is buried, Pretoriuskop camp is one of the oldest in the park and provides guests with a sense of nostalgia as they surround themselves with this vestige of the area's past.

One such example are the striking red trees, pre-dating the camp's decision to exclusively use indigenous plants in the park, thus highlighting the camp's unique character.

Important to note is that children under the age of six are not permitted on game drives, and children under the age of twelve are restricted from game walks.

Pre-booked, overnight activities include excursions down the Napi Wilderness Trail. Trails like this must be booked up to eleven months in advance to allow the camp sufficient time to coordinate and plan group sizes.

Other activities include the Sable Trail camp walk, and the Madlabantu 4x4 Adventure Trail, which is a weather sensitive activity.

The Mestel Dam hosts hippopotamus, while the Shitlhave Dam often produces reedbuck. The area also boasts regular sightings of wild dog and cheetah, as well as spotted hyena and leopard.

The most dominant tree in the camp is the silver cluster-leaf, while many other fine examples of Natal mahogany, marula and sycamore fig can be found.
