Travel to Kruger National Park

Overnight at Berg-en-Dal Rest Camp,
Kruger National Park
Berg en Dal Rest Camp

Situated on the banks of the Matjulu Spruit, the camp is one of few surrounded by beautiful, rocky hillsides. Staying true to the natural theme of the park, the camp is set in natural bush although it does have planted gardens. As one of the newer camps in the Kruger, guests are treated to stunning, modern lodgings that still hold that rustic appeal which can only be found in this wild part of the world.

The buildings in Berg en Dal Rest Camp, Kruger National Park are set within natural bush and the gardens planted with flowering shrubs and aloes, leaving much of the natural habitat unchanged within the camp. Berg en Dal is one of the newest camps in the Kruger National Park and offers visitors outstanding accommodation and lodging facilities.
Berg-en-Dal is home to a variety of impressive indigenous wildlife, including white rhino, kudu, impala, giraffe, elephant, reedbuck, klipspringer, wild dog, grey rhebok and warthog. Leopard have been seen drinking water from the dam in front of the camp, or regularly spotted in various areas around the camp.


Day 2

Travel to Satara Rest Camp

Satara is one of the busiest camps in the Kruger National Park. The camp is situated towards the middle of the park and it offers some of the best game viewing in the Kruger. The bush around the camp is open and the area is well known for its nearby lion populations.


While it doesn’t have a memorable historical background, Satara has more than made up for that by building its reputation for being one of the best camps for spotting wildlife.

Lions have always lived in this part of South Africa and with the abundance of grazing animals, lions can often be seen near to the camp. There are a few prides living in the area, and if you don’t spot them during the day, you are sure to hear them at night when the world is quiet and you are settling in for the night.
Satara is known as the “cat camp” as it remains the best camp to visit if you have the hope of seeing lions, leopards and cheetahs. The area around the camp is incredibly fertile and the lush grass attracts all kinds of antelope, the perfect meal for the big cats of the park. The best place to spot the cats is in the Muzadenzi area.


Day 3 

Travel to Letaba Rest Camp

The Letaba Rest Camp in the world-renowned Kruger National Park is an idyllic rest camp, situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park.

The name means 'river of sand', and the sandy riverbed is an excellent location for game viewing, particularly elephant, which thrive in the area. Letaba is a green oasis in the surrounding mopane veld, and remains a firm favourite with visitors. At night the stars overlook a symphony of sounds. Owls, nightjars, frogs, fruit bats, crickets and cicadas all vie to be heard, until the lion roars, then all are silent.

A visit to Letaba Camp’s Elephant Hall is a must.
The museum houses the enormous tusks of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ – the seven greatest elephants ever to roam the Kruger National Park. A number of bird and animal hides, particularly the Matambeni hide on the northern bank of the Engelhardt dam, offer excellent vantage points for birding. The spectacular landscape is a treasure trove of sights, smells and textures to delight the senses of any keen traveler.
