We had a wonderful holiday in the Kruger National Park. We stayed at Pretoriuskop for three nights. The accommodation was quite dated, but comfortable, clean and acceptable. It is still very affordable. I have no hesitation in recommending the Kruger National Park and all it camps to anybody who has a love of nature.

We stayed in an EB 5 hut. 5 single beds, table 4 chairs, fridge, cupboard,sink, linen, air con (yay), serviced daily(yay)!!! Great rest camp which has a pool and restaurant. Huts are clean well maintained, as are the bathrooms. Thumbs up from us. Huge bonus was spotting three of the Big 5 on our early morning drive!

The basic accommodation is clean and well maintained. Remember this is not a luxury camp. I don't understand that the restaurant is operated by Wimpy, which is not typically South African and not what is expected for an African experience. The location is far from the best game viewing areas. The surrounding grass is long and makes finding game difficult.... More

Basic lodges (especially the bathroom) and moody receptionist, who did not want to give us any information. Did not feel welcome here, but atleast it was just for one night. Park itself (shops) were ok, but probably won't come back here.

I stayed in the EB Huts, 2 sleeper with communal kitchen and communal ablutions. The Communal faculties were excellent and very clean. The camp shop, Wimpy and reception area are great and I can see a lot of work has gone in to renovating them. The swimming pool is brilliant and definitely needed in the heat of the day, it... More

Pretoriuskop is a reasonably priced self catering accommodation option within Kruger National Park. The décor of the chalets is outdated and this is a pity, however they were spotless and came with all equipment as stated. We have stayed in the 2, 4 and viewed the 6 sleeper units. The 2 sleeper we had came equipped with kitchen and all... More

This is the oldest camp at Kruger and therefore a bit outdated. The little houses are simple and provide enough room (at least ours, there are smaller huts on the premises as well). It offers all you need for a short stay: kitchen, shower, grill, a supermarket and a Wimpy-diner.

Still a nice camp to stay. Great area to see lots of game and rare game too. But the chalet we were given had a strong, stale cigarette smoke smell and there was still a dirty plate in the microwave with some sort of fatty sauce in it. The gamedrive was nice and we saw quite a few animals. But... More

Authentic accommodation and all round great facilities. We explored the Kruger each day on self drive tours, however the twilight game drive run by Management was awesome, the information and amount of game we saw was well worth the cost.
