Punda Maria Rest Camp, Kruger National Park

Punda Maria is the northernmost of SANParks rest camps and is in a great position for bird watchers.  It is supposed to be a 6 hour drive from JNB airport but add on an hour or so to allow for traffic and getting lost.  It’s best to start in the morning so if your flight arrives late, plan on staying near the airport and pick up your rental car in the morning so you can inspect it properly.
