Punda Maria Restcamp - Kruger Park
lies in the northernmost part of the Kruger National Park, 10 km from the Punda Maria Gate. The camp is situated in the Sandveld region which is often described as the botanical garden of the Kruger National Park.
Numerous plant species occur which are unique to the area. Game species most likely to be sighted include impala, zebra, buffalo, elephant, eland and sable. The area is also a birder’s paradise.
The 22 km Mahonie Loop that circumnavigates the camp is surely one of the best potential bird and tree drives in Southern Africa. A trip to Pafuri Picnic Site is also a must for birders and botanists. The road via Klopperfontein Dam can be very rewarding.Facilities at Punda Maria Restcamp - Kruger Park

Punda Maria is a nice, small camp which was renovated a short time ago. The facilities in the shop and the restaurant are good. The personnel is friendly and helpfully. However the terrace of the cabin is too small to enjoy breakfast with 3 persons.
Very neat and quiet. Nice to stay and not crowded. Staff friendly and helpful. Saw a lot off animals. Will re-visit Punda Maria again.
Only problem was that the plug to the frigde was behind the fridge and not plugged in so could not use it.
