Mopani camp is situated on the banks of the Pioneer Dam and is named after the mopane veld that surrounds the camp.

The camp is one of the newer camps, like Berg en Dal in the south, so it has a more modern feel to it.

It has a restaurant, shop, petrol station, swimming pool, bar, lounge, laundry and a walking trail within the camp.

Most of the bungalows are private and have been built among the natural vegetation...

The area is not great for consistant game sightings but we have had some good sightings such as lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard.

If you are patient, drive slow and go on your game drive when the animals are most active (cooler hours of the day) you will find them!

The Shipandani and Pioneer dam bird-hides are close to the camp and are good places to sit and wait for the animals.

"It's 764 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 information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, South Africa
