Sirheni Camp is located on the banks of the Mphongolo River and is surrounded by Mopane plains in Kruger Park, South Africa.

Sirheni Camp is the northernmost camp of the Kruger Park's 5 bush camps, forming an oasis in the surrounding Mopane plains. Its 15 cottages sprawl along the northern bank of the Mphongolo River, under a leafy canopy of huge Jackalberry, Leadwood, Tamboti, and Knob Thorn Trees in Kruger Park, South Africa.

Sirheni Camp forms part of a concept in bush lodges in the Kruger Park, South Africa. Smaller, more luxurious camps are built in the more remote areas of Kruger.

Sirheni Camp is private, which means that only residents are allowed in the camp and on the access roads to the camp. Each of these smaller camps are situated within easy reach of the larger rest camps so that guests can make use of the larger camps amenities and shops if needed.

Entrance gates and restcamp gates are closed at night.

Visitors must ensure that they arrive at the entrance gate in good time to reach the restcamp before closing time. No permits will be issued for late arrivals. There are regular domestic flights to and from Phalaborwa Kruger Park Gateway Airport, which is just 4 kilometres (2.4miles) from Phalaborwa Gate.
