About Balule Rest Camp Kruger National Park SANParks

Deep in the heart of the Kruger National Park, in the most exquisite topography, lies a small satellite camp named Balule, after the Tsonga word for the Olifants River.

This camp is one of the best places for guests to experience nature first-hand, situated more or less in the centre of the Park, just south of the Olifants Camp.

With only the most basic of facilities and no electricity, a low fence is the only barrier that separates you from the wilderness, resulting in a true back to basics experience. It is this unique wilderness feel of the camp that makes it a firm favourite with backpackers, the caravanning community and other visitors who want to get away from it all.

PLEASE NOTE: from 1 September 2017, all visitors over 18 years old will be required to produce their identity document (ID), passport or alternative valid identification e.g. driver’s licence card for scanning upon entering/exiting the Park.

PLEASE NOTE: the rates are subject to the number of adults and children staying. Quotes will include the 1% Community Levy, but will exclude daily conservation fees, which are to be paid directly to camp on arrival.
