The perfect location close to Numbi gate. A late arrival due to flat tire was effortlessly accommodated. Friendly staff, great facilities,perfect location. The swimming pool is the perfect summer escape. Chalets are ideal-Braai under a blanket of stars. Just perfect.

The best camp in the South – It is peaceful and quiet with not a lot of traffic coming through. It gives easy access to a lot of very good routes in the south of the Park as well as two of the main gates. Pay the extra and book a perimeter chalet – these are excellent. As with all... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pretoriuskop Restcamp this weekend. Long-time visitors to Kruger will know that restcamp accommodation is basic but spotless and we were again not disappointed. The accommodation is affordable with just enough luxury to not take away from the bush experience. The staff are friendly and happy to help with any request. The camp itself is... More

The rest camp is very basic and for what you are getting pretty pricey. The rooms sleep 4 in a single rondawel and it can be a bit cramped, however the communal bathrooms are very clean and well kept. The game sighting was the worst of all three places we stayed and i would most certainly NOT recommend this to... More

Spent 3 nights at this camp in Kruger Park. Clean, daily service and perfect for those without campers or tents. Very reasonably priced and had everything one needs. A store, a restaurant, and braii (or bbq ) pits for all. If you are not out on a safari there are lovely grounds to stroll and a gorgeous pool to swim... More

Yes I know Pretoriuskop is a little dated as far as rest camps go, but this remains a special place not only for nostalgic reasons but also for the quality of the game viewing. I highly recommend the morning walks - we saw rhino and elephant up close as well as a distant sighting of the extremely rare and rarely... More

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.
