        With only a few 'tents' (more of a cottage, clean and with quite a lot of amenities I must say), it's a very remote, quiet and nice camp in the park. The tents are located overlooking a waterhole, illuminated by night. It's a great experience...More

        This is a very remote camp. The camp has only 4 tents and you do not have to go out to look for wildlife since the wildlife will come to visit the waterhole. The camp attendant keeps the place spotlessly clean and it is interesting...More

        Grootkolk is a great wilderness camp. Its remoteness, like Bitterpan, makes it an interesting place. It is supposed to have great game and we were just unlucky not to have seen lions and leopards when we were there. However we loved this camp. The rooms...More

        We went to Grootkolk a few years ago. Loved it but the accommodation was very old and grimy. It felt dirty but was probably just old, specially the shower. Has it been renovated?
