“at the gate but in the wild”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2008

I was a little suspicious of staying at one of the camps right at an entry gate into the park, but we found the Opren Camp to be very quiet, very peaceful, and very nice, and far more intimate. Actually, it felt far more natural and less touristy than some of the interior big camps like Sukuza.

Stayed March 2008

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Orpen Rest Camp is situated centrally on the western border of the Kruger National Park. It is a small camp that derived its name from the surname of the donor of the land, Eileen Orpen. The scattered trees and wide-open plains covered by sweet grass attract many browsers. This in turn, attracts the eye-catching cheetah, lion and leopard. Well known for its diversity of habitat and wildlife, Orpen offers visitors an excellent opportunity to experience close encounters with elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard in a natural environment. Wild dog, cheetah, zebra and giraffe are also indigenous to this area, a paradise for the wildlife enthusiast. ... more   less
