This camp is one of the newer camps in Kruger. It has a Baobab tree in the camp close to reception. The swimming pool is great. The restaurant is really good and the view of the dam while having a sunset supper is fabulous.
We stayed in a 4 bed perimeter view bungalow. This overlooked the Pioneer Dam and we had a wonderful time eating our food from the Braai while watching a lone Male Elephant on the other side of the dam.

A signature feature is the huge gnarled old baobab tree in the heart of the camp.
