Directions to Hamiltons Tented Camp, Central Kruger Park

Hamiltons Tented Camp is situated in the central region of Kruger National Park with the closest entrance gate being Orpen, 46km away.

Access can also be gained from the South by entering the park at Paul Kruger Gate which is approximately a 3 hour drive. The drive from Johannesburg will take 6-7 hours on well-maintained roads – a very long journey though and not recommended for guests with limited time.
