Orpen Rest Camp - Kruger National Park

★ ★

Located centrally in the Kruger, Orpen Camp offers guests an authentic bushveld experience. With the choice of safari drives and game walks travellers enjoy the open plains that surround the camp. Comfortable and convenient accommodation in bungalows and cottages is available for all guests.

The scattered trees combined with the wide-open plains which are covered by sweet grass attract many browsers. This type of wildlife then, in turn, draws the cheetah, leopard and lion. Famous for its excellent density of wildlife and habitat, this Kruger Park rest camp provides visitors with the chance of significant wildlife experiences on safari drives and walking safaris.

Close encounters with rhinos, elephants, buffaloes, lions and leopards in a natural environment make for an unforgettable safari holiday. Also indigenous to this region of South Africa are the wild dogs, cheetahs, zebras and giraffes which make it a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts.
