we had a great one night stay at the rest camp

A nice rest camp, clean and comfortable beds, basic self catering facilities in twin room, great place to stay for exploration of northern area of Kruger and area should not be missed. There was miscommunication when we booked a night tour, and we missed out on our pick up, this was quickly rectified and we greatly enjoyed a personal tour late in the night with the manager of the site.

The accommodation was good and clean. The food at the restaurant was good too.

Our wonderful stay in Kruger was capped with 3 nights at Punda Maria. We had a very private campsite and were able to pick up a number of new bird sightings from our tent! Kruger is an absolute gem - probably still the most exciting and rewarding places we have in South Africa and Punda Maria provides the visitor with a real bushveld safari atmosphere.
