Located in South Africa :: Kruger Park
Category: Camping :: Park Camp


Punda Maria is set at the foot of the pretty Gumbandebvu Hill and is the northernmost SANParks camp in Kruger. This quaint camp provides a convenient base from which to explore the bird-rich Luvuvhu Valley, botanically diverse sandveld and magnificent archaeological ruins of the ancient citadel of Thulamela. Punda Maria is a play on the Swahili for zebra, 'punda milia' (meaning Striped Donkey). The campsite is equipped with with or without power point and ablution facilities with hot water. A maximum of 6 people per site. The camp is shady and peaceful, with a distinct character of its own. Some of its original white-washed, thatched buildings with rough-hewn leadwood verandah posts, built in the early 1930's, are still in use today.
