Pretoriuskop is situated in the south-western part of the Kruger National Park only 9 km from Numbi Gate. The camp lies in a hilly region with many interesting, picturesque rocky outcrops and granite hills. Rare species like sable and rhino are fairly often sighted in this area, as well as the more prolific species such as impala, zebra, giraffe and wildebeest. The road to Skukuza is well worth driving, 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 beauty. Southeastwards runs the original transport riders’ route, and several historic places, such as the Voortrekker Road, the birthplace of Jock of the Bushveld and the Albasini Ruins are within a short drive from the camp.
