Maroela camp is a small camp and is situated on the banks of the Timbavati River, on the western border of the Kruger National Park, approximately 2 km east of Orpen Rest Camp. 

You access the camp on the Tamboti tented camp entrance road as both camps are situated close to one another and both face the Timbavati River.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
