    Enjoyed our stay here in our lovely bungalow and the kids loved the pool. The view from the restaurant over the river is fantastic, a place where you could sit all day long. The food in the restaurant isn't bad either.

    Gorgeous camp and if you are lucky enough to get one of the 4 units with a view over the dam then you are in heaven with the hippo’s, birds, crocs and sunsets. Great restaurant and you can buy wifi from the conference centre. Great...More

    This camp is the newest in Kruger and the place is very beautiful and clean. The staff is nice and the restaurant had wonderful food and cappuccinos. Wildlife viewing was plentiful, especially on the road between letaba and mopani.

    We stayed four nights in Mopani. Clean, excellent beds, good food, and friendly staff. In addition, the Mopani shop had very reasonably priced beverages and the like. The main breakfast area overlooked the dam and sightings of elephants, hippos, crocodiles and myriads of birds were...More

    That's some 210 kilometers, and over 4.5 hours driving. In Kruger this is a very long distance, as you cannot drive fast. So it depends on your arrival time whether you can reach Mopani before gate closure.
