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: In the Punda Maria section of the park. Large baobab in camp has resident spine tails.
Walks: If you want to walk the Levhuvhu (Lanner Gorge) - it takes about 2 hours by vehicle to get to the walking area - recommended. Do not walk the Levhuvhu near camp as there are human settlements on the other side and these detract from the wilderness feeling.
Guides: I guess this is the luck of the draw. Our guides were not that great. They spoke in their native tongue to each other constantly and interacted with us only if we asked a question. They did not enjoy sharing their knowledge of the bush. Perhaps their knowledge was limited.
Camp Staff: Not happy. A young guy had taken over from his father and he did not seem impressed with his lot in life.
Overall recommended however if you can afford a couple of thousand rand more then do the Pafuri walking Safari with Wilderness (I did it first and will do it again and again and again). Nyalaland will not see me again. The two experiences are like chalk and cheese.
