VenueSkukuza rest camp is the largest camp in the Kruger National Park and is located on the banks of the scenic Sabie river. The camp hosts two well-facilitated conference venues; the smaller Goldfields Auditorium, and spacious Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre. Goldfields Auditorium seats up to 158 delegates in a theatre/cinema style format, and Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre accommodates up to 750, with a range of dynamic seating arrangements available. Both conference facilities offer a range of equipment for delegates to use.
When you drive through the imposing gates into Skukuza you find yourself in an administration centre abuzz with scientists, rangers, and conservationists. A wealth of knowledge can be gained in the information center, while adults and children can attend lectures in the nearby environmental education centre. A museum has been constructed at the railway siding, which was used on the Selati line in the 1920’s. You can have a meal in a restaurant housed in two old railway carriages from the same period.
The myriad of birds and wild game in the area is easily spotted by going onbush walks and game drives. Wildlife documentaries are shown in an outdoor amphitheatre. There is a magnificent 9-hole (18-tee), par 72 golf course available for golf enthusiasts on their Kruger National Park safari holiday.
Also worth a visit is the Campbell 1929 Hut Museum. This national monument was one of the first tourist huts to be established in Skukuza and houses interesting relics from the period. Skukuza has over 200 huts, making it the Kruger National Park’s largest camp.
