Mpila Camp Review

In the central Imfolozi section of the park, Mpila is humbler than Hilltop Camp and more reminiscent of some of Kruger's older camps. Choose among 12 fully equipped one-room chalets with ensuite bathroom, kitchenette and deck, 2 three-bedroom cottages (these come with a cook who will prepare the food you've brought with you) 6 self-catering chalets, and in the Safari Tented camp, 13 two- and four-bed self-catering tents with ensuite bathrooms. Three luxurious lodges with resident chef and ranger are also available. Gas is available, but you can only buy curios and sodas at the camp shop, so stock up with groceries before you arrive. Be sure to book your bush walks and game drives on arrival, as they work on a first-come, first-served basis.
