No, camping equipment will not be supplied. When you book a camping site you literally reserve a piece of land with a power point and a braai/barbeque area. You will need to bring your own camping equipment.
If you are not keen on bringing your own equipment then the next best option is to stay in a budget safari tent.
All Camps with camping sites have communal ablutions and kitchen facilities.
No. You will need to book two separate camping sites as only a maximum of 6 people are allowed per camping site. If the camping sites are booked under the same reservation number they will be next to each other.
You can have one large tent and one vehicle per camping site. If you are camping with a small tent, then an exception can be made and a second small tent will be allowed.
The maximum number of 6 people per site may however not be exceeded.
Only one Caravan/RV with a side tent and one vehicle will be allowed per site. If you have a generator you may only use it one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset this is to reduce and minimize the noise levels in the Park.
All the campsites are supplied with power points with the exception of Punda Maria and Skukuza, which have sites with both a power point and no power point.
Tsendze and Balule are the only two camps that have no power points and are the ultimate camping spots for the adventurous camper.
Space can be limited, especially during peak season, so only one car/vehicle per camping site is allowed. If there is a second car/ vehicle you will be charged an additional rate, however, the maximum of 6 people per site may not be exceeded.
Most Rest Camps allow ground sheets, however, special arrangements/ permission must be organized at the reception office of sites where lawns have been planted.
If you plan on visiting the park with a Caravan/RV you need to reserve a Camping Site. A Camping Site is a piece of ground with a power point where you can park at night and sleep.
Most camps have a designated Camp ground. You cannot simply arrive and choose a spot you will need to check in with reception and you will be assigned a Camping Site.
During the day you can explore the park and if you have a reservation the same spot will be available to you again that night should you choose to sleep in the same Camp again.
Pre-booking is absolutely necessary. Availability especially during peak periods like school holidays is very limited. Camping sites during the June/July holidays get booked up within a few hours a year in advance.
If you arrive at the park without a reservation there would be no space and you would need to leave the Park at the end of the day before the gates close.
