Malelane Camp - Johannesburg
The secret to seeing great game is to leave the a Camp within 1/2 hr of the gates opening in the morning. Plan your breakfast stop at a picnic spot about 2hr later and then return to Camp for lunch and to relax. In the evening, take about a 1 1/2hr round trip to explore the area near your Camp.

Directions to Malelane Camp
Malelane is a beautiful satellite camp to Berg-en-Dal, located near to the Malelane entrance Gate. This makes it particularly convenient for travelers driving through from Joburg. There is no reception at Malelane camp, and all administrative issues are handled by staff at the nearby gate, which many guests feel adds to the charm of this popular spot in the park. This small camp is located on the banks of the impressive Crocodile River, and is therefore situated on the Southern border of the Park.
The small size of the camp lends itself perfectly to guests looking for a slightly different Kruger Park experience, away from the larger camps and accommodation options.
