Maroela

Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Orpen's small, cozy satellite campsite on the Timbavati River is just 3 km (2 mi) away from the Orpen Gate. It can be hot, dry, and dusty at any time of the year, but you'll feel close to the bush among thorn trees and big shady maroela (marula) trees. There's an ablution block with showers, a communal kitchen, and freezers for your perishables. A small hide (blind) overlooks a water hole, and there's lots of excellent game in the vicinity, including cheetahs, lions, and rhinos.
