Voted #1 in Getaway Readers’ Top Spots

Getaway’s top-voted spots to stay in Kruger and beyond – Private camps and Greater Kruger

Excerpt from Getaway’s Reader Survey, first published on 31 August 2021

Within the park are a number of private concessions and commercial camps, and these rank highly among Kruger visitors. Then there are the camps and lodges in the surrounding reserves that make up greater Kruger, which are favoured for their offering of luxury and exclusivity.

When it comes to greater Kruger, the offerings are endless. Based on readers’ votes, these are the favourite private camps in Kruger and surrounding reserves.

1. Mdluli Safari Lodge

Mdluli opened its doors in early 2020 and is already a favourite, taking the number one spot. Closest to Numbi gate, Mdluli is an 850 ha piece of land within Kruger, which benefits the large Mdluli community living outside the park. This property, with 50 safari tents, is a luxurious but affordable option for Kruger visitors.

Unique to this part of the park are the granite rock formations within Mdluli. Guests can walk up to the granite viewpoint, with panoramic views over the Kruger landscape. 

Mdluli Safari Lodge – team response

As a brand new property, we are thrilled to be in the company of such exceptional properties that have been around for so many years – and to have taken the #1 spot!

Thank you to you, the South African travellers, that have visited us, and become part of our story.

In line with Government and hospitality industry regulations, we have made sure to leave no stone unturned to ensure safety and impeccable cleanliness throughout the lodge and its facilities – front and back of house.

Rest assured, we have spared no details in ensuring safe hygienic surroundings for our guests, and our team. With all the safety precautions in place, you are free to kick back and relax, and allow all your stresses to fade away.

Our brand new lodge is uniquely designed in that:
Each luxury tent is positioned at a distance of at least 15m from the adjacent tent, with a private access walkway and private patio.
The open architecture of the public areas allows for fresh air flows and expansive spaces to be very comfortably socially distanced from other guests.
