The road to Skukuza Camp in the Kruger Park, is well worth travelling, and even better are the views from Hippo Pool and Doispane Road, from which you can look down on the Sabie River and its riverine vegetation. South-eastwards runs the original transport riders' route, with several historic places, such as the Voortrekker Road, the birthplace of Jock of the Bushveld, and the Albasini Ruins, (an early trading store) all within a short drive from Pretoriuskop camp.
