About Balule Rest Camp Kruger National Park SANParks

Deep in the heart of the Kruger National Park, in the most exquisite topography, lies a small satellite camp named Balule, after the Tsonga word for the Olifants River. This camp is one of the best places for guests to experience nature first-hand, situated more or less in the centre of the Park, just south of the Olifants Camp. With only the most basic of facilities and no electricity, a low fence is the only barrier that separates you from the wilderness, resulting in a true back to basics experience. It is this unique wilderness feel of the camp that makes it a firm favourite with backpackers, the caravanning community and other visitors who want to get away from it all.
