We enjoyed our stay in a little room number 8 Original looking huts. Simple, clean & functional inside. Rest camp area was well utilised. Food and service at the restaurant were delightful. Nice swimming pool. Good hill run to start the day 😄

We visited this camp and spent two lovely nights sleeping in the 1930's chalets and found them to be comfortable and clean. Small but nice. The camp is kept clean and well managed with a fascinating game hide with a waterhole that is frequently visited by animals. One could actually stay at the hide all day and you should see... More

Because this is a small camp and very far from citylife we had the best experience of all the camps. Sightings of a pride of 12 lion stalking a warthog enjoyed with only 1 other vehicle and good had good views of buffalo and elephant. The camp receptionists very friendly and helpful. Camp shop small as expected but had everything... More

we stayed on the campsite (again) with our rooftop tent, initial idea was to stay in mapungbuwe NP, but during our morning drive there we didn't see too much game, a lot of construction still going on and the campsite was out the park .. so we went on to Kruger which is always rewarding.. Being a friday and start... More

It's a lovely open campsite with trees. There wasn't a lot of grass but still comfortable.The staff were friendly and helpful. There was plenty wildlife in the campsite - bushbabies and buck. Watch out or the monkeys though! The waterhole is lit at night. We saw a huge herd of buffaloes at the waterhole late in the evening. We also... More

We booked one of the excellent luxury tents here for several nights. Lovely accommodation, beautiful views, well equipped for simply self catering and private braai meals. Large fridge. Everything spacious and very clean. Comfy bed and nice bedding. Service and friendliness of staff very good. Nice little shop. Pleasant Snacks (we didn´t have any full meals) at the small restaurant.... More

Punda Maria Rest Camp is on the Northern tip of the Kruger National Park which is not as popular and over-populated as some of the Central and Southern camps. I enjoy this camp for specifically the above. Accommodation is also more available than in some more popular camps and sometimes less expensive. The Pool is a welcome sight on the... More

We rented the family cottage. It was wonderful, very spacious and well laid out. All the cutlery that we needed was available and the unit has a convenient dining area outside, where some nocturnal animals visiting frequently. The staff is very friendly and it is a nice, quiet camp. We had a lovely stay and will certainly visit again.

We stayed in a 3bed bungalow, it is smaller than the usual bungalows in the other camps. To stay in the safari tents is probably a better option. The camp location is great, it is on a waterhole, where we had great sightings: elephants, a huge herd of buffalos, hyena and various antilopes. The restaurant is small, but serves good... More

This was our first stay here... and all in all the camp is neat and well kept. But the rooms are literally on top of each other in one long line. So when you open your door about one meter to your right or left your neighbours are right there. So having kids is quite difficult as you're really spending... More
