Kruger National Park - Pretoruiskop Rest Camp

Pretoriouskop is the oldest rest camp in the Kruger National Park. The design and layout of the camp, as well as the style of the accommodation, easily gives away the age of the camp.

But although it has a rich and interesting history, Pretoriouskop has been brought up to date and it remains a very popular camp for overnight guests.

Pretoriuskop Rest Camp - Wildlife

It is always important to remember where you are. You are in the Kruger and it is wild even if the camp is seemingly calm. You need to keep your eyes peeled at all times for some of the other creatures who often sneak into the camp unseen. When walking anywhere be on the lookout for snakes, spiders and scorpions. They’ll generally stay well out of your way but it’s best to always be aware of what is around you.

Pretoriuskop Rest Camp - Health

Most of the Kruger is within a malaria area. While most locals will forgo medication, if you are an overseas visitor, we highly recommend seeing your doctor and getting the right medication before you arrive. The symptoms of malaria might only show up after you have returned from your holiday. Prevention is better than cure. Malaria can make you feel really miserable!

Pretoriuskop Rest Camp - Weather

Pretoriouskop, along with the rest of the Kruger, is in a summer rainfall region. This means that summers are wet and humid, with the vegetation overgrown and the rivers often flooding low lying bridges. You can expect most of your summer days to end with a thunderstorm or a sudden downpour that will ease the stifling heat. If the heat is not your thing, you might prefer visiting in the winter. Even so, winters here are very mild and you won’t need too much extra clothing.
The season in which you visit the park will also have an effect on the camp times. There is a strict policy, for your own safety, to be within the camp at a certain time.

Pretoriuskop Rest Camp - Animals for View

The Kruger is not about staying in the camps all day. It’s about that mind-blowing safari experience. Pretoriouskop is situated in one of the best areas in the park if you want to see all kinds of animals without driving around for days on end.
The vegetation might be a little thick, especially during the rainy summer months, and this can make it a little difficult to spot a well-hidden animal. Nevertheless, you are certainly going to be in for a visual treat when you are touring the area.
Animals of all kinds have been spotted on the popular routes in this region, as well as on the secondary roads that are scattered around the main routes. Leopards and buffalos are regularly sighted. You’ll have to keep your eyes on the trees if you hope to see a leopard as they are often well hidden in the shade.
It is also not uncommon to come across elephants, impalas, red duikers, kudus, waterbucks and lions. A day’s drive can take you to Skukuza and back, giving you ample opportunity to see all kinds of interesting animals.
A Kruger Park safari is not the only way to see the animals in the area. There is always the option of taking part in a bush walk. There are a variety of wilderness trails in the area, the most popular being the Napi Trail which will take you into the woodland bushveld.
