A HUGE thank you to Christopher, David and Winston for a fantastic experience yet again. The setting of the temporary camp is awesome and the best in the Park. We had wonderful walks and the information provided was brilliant. The food was pretty good and Winston should be proud of the meals that he has prepared. It was our 17th... More

Nyala trail base camp overlooks the Levubu river with a spectacular view of nature. There are no fences but our safety never felt compromised in an area where the big five walks freely. Our guides David and Christopher were very good and the camp cook did a great job. The area is not renowned for masses of wildlife but we... More

We are a group of regular trialists, all with over 10 walks behind us. Nyalaland has been a favourite of the group in the past, but after having our trip cancelled last year due to the floods, we were trepidatious to what lay in stall for us this year.

What a privilege to be able to do these bush walks with excellent and knowledgeable guides who really tried hard to give us what we wanted - unfortunately... More

For the first time visitor to Kruger or for those of you who have never done a walking trail, then Nyalaland is FANTASTIC! However there is an infinitely better walking trail done on the Makuleke side. Accommodation: Simple A-frame huts that sleep two. Two single beds with about a 0.5 meter space between. Communal ablution. Clean and well serviced. Location:... More

All I can say is that I am truly blessed to have been able to go on this trail in the Kruger National Park, and recommend this activity to anyone who loves the bush. It was undeniably one of the most personally profound trips for me. The camp is based in the north of the KNP, and you enter through... More
