We had booked a night in pretoriuskop based on its proximity to numbi gate. Although the san parks website stated to avoid numbi gate, the drive there was relatively speedy, albeit bumpy. Better than going to nalelane gate, where there are easily delays of 45 mins due to roadworks.
We entered pretoriuskop just before 6 (closure), and reception was efficient. We found our 2 four-sleeper round huts easily, and although basic, they do the trick. The shower though needed some fine tuning, and was either boiling or cold.
The shop had quite a good selection, and we could find all ingredients for a braai. In the morning we walked through the camp, and it was well kept, neat and tidy.
Before we left we used the petrol station with a courteous attendant.
All in all it is a nice smallish camp in wellkept grounds. We encountered some good game around the park as well.
As a negative, the restaurant was closed. Although it was planned to reopen on march 26, we were there on April 8and it was still closed. No word of this on the san parks website!
