The Pioneer Dam of the Kruger National Park is instantly recognised by its large population of the attractive Mopani Trees, not to mention the gorgeous restcamp in the area which lends its name & aesthetics from these magnificent species. Mopani restcamp, its exquisite thatched accommodation & stone buildings, an extension of the bushy surroundings, combines its perfect position relative to the dam for viewing of the wildlife seeking a reliable water source, providing excellent game viewing opportunities.

Accommodation at the charming restcamp is provided in a series of bungalows, all with bathrooms and fully equipped kitchenettes. The Pioneer Dam Bird-Hides and Shipandane sleep-over as well as wildlife film screenings are additional activities provided at the Mopani restcamp. Onsite facilities include a ladies bar, restaurant, shops, laundromat, conference facilities and auditorium as well as a delightful swimming pool.

Visitors on the lookout from the camp's numerous vantage points will spot elephants, waterbuck, buffalo, hippos and lion.
The open plains surrounding are populated with many species such as wildebeest, zebra, tsessebe, and the call of the jackals.

"Our guide was Gert and it ended up being myself and my fiance only on the your, despite not having booked a private safari. Gert was brilliant. His knowledge of the park, animals and birds was encyclopaedic and entertaining. He had a great dry sense of humour, laid back and tried to facilitate our requests. The accommodation and food etc were nice, but the safari was just great. Highly recommended."

Three of us did the budget/economy tour and were surprised at how amazing it was for being a "budget tour". The drive to/from Johannesburg with Dez was smooth. The lodge was perfect; a really nice place and the meals were delicious. The best part of the tour was our guide, Robbie Williams. Robbie is extremely experienced and with him we saw the big 5 plus more. I would recommend nhongo to anyone!

Robbie was the most fantastic guide! He really took his time to explain everything to us and went out of his way to give us the best experience/time. Waking up for a game drive with him even after a short night was the biggest pleasure and we couldn't have asked for anything better!! Thank you so very much!!
