Location | Luxury Tented Lodge, Kruger National Park | Mdluli Safari Lodge

Inside the heart of  the Kruger

You’ll find us inside the Kruger National Park, not far from Pretoriuskop Rest Camp.

Drive: 5-hours drive from Johannesburg. Fly: 45-minute shuttle from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA), 1 hour 30 minutes from Skukuza Airport.

Once inside the Park, the lodge is easily accessed through a private road near the Numbi Security & Control Point. From there, it’s approximately 6km/20 minutes drive to reach the lodge main gate. Look out for sightings en route!

Numbi Gate is the nearest entry gate to us. All guests are required to adhere to gate opening and closing times.
