Pretoriuskop Camp is one of the oldest camps in the Kruger National Park and located along an ancient explorers highway that’s rich in history. Much of its rich cultural heritage has been retained by keeping the traditional round huts but modern facilities have been added such as a restaurant, shop, petrol station and one of the best swimming pools in the Park.
The units are traditional 2-sleeper bungalows known as Kruger rondavels (round huts).
