A look at the evolution of tourist accomodation in the Kruger National Park

The Wolhuter Hut in Pretoriuskop Rest Camp dates from the 1920’s and has been preserved to offer a glimpse into what a visit to the Park was like when it was still in its infancy (it is no longer used to accommodate guests):

The accommodation on offer today is much more sophisticated and spacious – this is one of the new bungalows in Lower Sabie Rest Camp:

There’s a huge variety of accomodation options available in the Park today, ranging from the very rustic to the very luxurious, to cater for almost all tastes and budgets.

    What a change. Somehow I miss the sheer simplicity of the rondavels that were a part of my family’s visits to Kruger. I guess change is inevitable and I’m sure those new, more luxurious accommodations make it a more comfortable experience. Have a great weekend dear de Wet family.

      Thank you very much Jackie!

      We really enjoy taking part in the photo challenge, but have to admit that it’s hard sometimes to find a contribution that also fits with our theme here at de Wets Wild!
