Mopani Rest Camp

 

Mopani Rest Camp (Kruger National Park, Shongololo Loop, Kruger Park 1350) — Mopani Rest Camp is located on the banks of one of the original dams, which means visitors sometimes prefer to remain in the camp for excellent game viewing. The Pioneer Dam is fed by the Tsende River, and the surrounding bush is lush and green for most of the year. The camp is named after the Mopani tree that is a dominant species in the area.

Mopani Rest Camp lies very close to the Tropic of Capricorn, and in fact there is a drive called the Tropic of Capricorn loop which allows you to drive along the parallel of latitude. It’s an excellent area for birding. Mopani Rest Camp offers a variety of accommodation from budget-friendly cottages to more luxurious guesthouses. Dine in a beautiful setting at Tindlovu restaurant, or enjoy a sundowner at Pioneer Dam. The magnificent Lonely Bull Trail starts at Mopani Rest Camp. This is a four-day trail that crosses the divide between the Mingerhout Dam and the low-water Letaba Bridge.
