The camp is a place prepared for caravans, hostels, small cottages and luxury bungalows with air conditioning. Build a tent is possible, but probably with much count. The amount of game is to unimaginable. The Kruger Park are books, zoologists and artists working there for life. It occurs here 137 kinds of mammals, 112 species of reptiles (including snakes 50), 49 fish species, 33 amphibian species, 227 kinds of butterflies.
