We did a scouting trip outside of Kruger gates while on a recept trip and found a little gem. I am very very anti Forever Resorts, not a fan in the least but since we found this little place I have decided to rethink my opinion. It's tiny 40 stands more or less and over peak season Easter they had 3 campers there (shock) they charge R290 a night and have a lovely pool, pristine abulsions, the best I have seen by far and perfect green grass on every site. Lots of shade and is 2km from a Kruger gate. So when Kruger is fully booked this little gem is virtually empty. I prefer staying in Kruger myself so the chances of us staying there are minimal but I would use them in a heartbeat as a one nighter when doing a long trip between North and South Kruger.

They had a special over Easter of R100 per night for 4 nights. Wish this place were near JHB, I love a place like this near us. Well worth a look if you want into Kruger over peak season but can't get bookings in Kruger itself.

Purchase a wild card, then the cost to enter the park is zero. Best of all you can get one that covers a lot more than just San Parks.

Wild card comes in different flavours check here.

Sorry Wilsur I have no clue, we have the family Wildcard so don't pay at all. Well worth the money since we are spending 50 plusdays in Kruger this year.

Did not mention the safari park has pensioner special prices of R150 I think it was and the R290 was the price in peak season. Out of season was much cheaper. Also although it is out the park we saw a Preggy African Wild Cat there, amazing sighting and stunning bird life too. I did take pics so will add them later on. :)

Frown  I really thought I had taken pics but when I checked now the only pics I can find are of the AWC and birds, I did not take one.  I know we filmed it but that does not help up now, sorry guys.

Ons het ook die Paasnaweek daar gekamp omrede ons nie plek in die Kruger kon kry nie. Ons het R250 per nag betaal. Die kamp is letterlik 200m van die Kruger hek af. Ons het die Kruger as dagbesoekers besoek en omrede ek eers my wild card hernu in Junie voor my lang vakansie in die wildtuin, moes ek die toegang (conservation fees) betaal as dagbesoeker. Dit is R50 per volwassene en R25 per kind onder twee of drie (nie seker nie)

Ek kom oorspronklik van Phalaborwa af en buiten die wildtuin, was dit ook lekker om weer deur die dorp te ry en al die ou bekende plekke te besoek. Sal sonder om te skroom enige tyd weer daar gaan staan afgesien van die feit dat ons vleis vir braai die tweede aand gesteel is terwyl ons in die kamp rondgestap het.

Dankie Willem ek het nou goeie nuus (amper) gekry want die lang naweek in Junie is on implimenterings naweek en dit gaan moontlik met 'n maand uit geskuif word.  Nou het ek 'n brein wave gekry om daai naweek soontoe te gaan.

Wat dink jy ?
