Sirheni Camp enquiries and reservations:

Sirheni Camp “Best kept secret in the Kruger National Park”

‘Sirheni’ is a Tsonga word that means ‘cemetery’, after a type of elephant graveyard at a site near to the camp.

Sirheni Bushveld Camp nestles on the edge of the Kruger National Park’s northern plains within the Mopane veld of the region.

The Sirheni Dam, on the Mphongolo River, lies next to the camp.
The accommodation facilities and the camp’s two bird hides overlook the dam and a wide variety of game and birds are attracted to it.

Visitors have been awakened to the sounds of lion and hyena, as there are often kills at the dam. Sirheni has a resident leopard that is seen on a regular basis, often coming down to drink at the dam.

Sirheni Camp in Kruger National Park has two superb hides positioned about 100 metres (328 feet) apart and connected by a trail which follows the length of the perimeter fence. Like the balconies of most of the cottages, they are raised quite high, giving views over the water and surroundings.

The hide on the perimeter fence, overlooking the Sirheni Dam, is a good place for doing some bird watching. The hide is also the best place for sightseeing and observing game coming down to the water for a drink. Perhaps you could catch a glimpse of Sirheni Camp's resident Leopard which is seen on a regular basis, often coming down to drink at the dam.

Night drives enables the vacationer to take part in the nocturnal nightlife activities of Kruger's secretive creatures. Guided bush walks, in the company of trained field and transportation guides with backup rifles, take groups of up to 8 people out into the bush for a few hours.

Track Rhino, Elephant and Lion on foot and learn and observe fascinating facts about the African bush.
