Shimuwini restcamp (restcamp/ northern Kruger)

31 DECEMBER 2018 TO 1 JANUARY 2019 (1 NIGHT)

Centered in a quiet clearing along the banks of the Shingwedzi river, this eponymous camp provides a well-balanced Kruger National Park accommodation offering of luxury holiday and authentic, outdoor camping trip. Shrouded in mopane trees, the area produces sightings of waterbuck, nyala, kudu, and elephant, as well as a variety of bird species. While the river does dry up in summer months, animal sightings are more frequent in winter as groups challenge each other over quickly disappearing pools left in the wake of the disappearing river.

Accommodation is in three private en-suite serviced units that each sleep two people.

 

Mopani Camp (restcamp/north western Kruger)

1 TO 4 JANUARY 2019 (3 NIGHTS)

The pervasive Mopani tree found in the Pioneer Dam area of Kruger National Park lends both its aesthetic and its name to this primary rest camp. Thatched buildings with rock faced walls blend seamlessly into the natural environment, materials used to construct these buildings including rough stone, wood and thatching-grass.

Huddled against and overlooking the banks of the dam, visitors can take advantage of the winter trend for park animals to move towards water sources as they migrate towards the dam’s edge, providing excellent viewing opportunities.

The Tropic of Capricorn loop and the Nshawu pans areas allow for game viewing from open plains which host blue wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra, buffalo and the rarer tsessebe, as well as the smaller Black-Backed Jackal and caracal.

Accommodation is in a private guest house with four en-suite bedrooms that each sleep two people, which is serviced with fresh linen and towels. It also has its own private outside entertainment area  and bush views.

Letaba (restcamp/northern Kruger)

 

4 TO 6 JANUARY 2019 (2 NIGHTS)

The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The character of Letaba Camp depends heavily on the tall shady trees (Sycamore Fig, Natal Mahogany, Sausage Tree and Apple Leaf), expansive lawns and indigenous gardens where tame Bushbuck wander. Visit in winter and you will find the gardens a riot of colour, with several species of Aloe and the Impala lily in full bloom at your accommodation in Kruger Park. The Aloes attract a variety of birds, including the White Bellied and Marico Sunbird, Crested Barbet, Blackheaded Oriole and Black Eyed Bulbul.

Accommodation is in three private en-suite cottages (serviced; fresh linen and towels) that each sleep two people.

Departure day

We always fit in an early morning game drive, and of course, a hearty breakfast before departure back to Phalaborwa airport.
