The conference venue is in the Skukuza rest camp and all delegates are strongly recommended to use accommodation in this camp only. Because of distances between camps, restrictions on travel outside the camp after dark, and gate closing and opening times, it will not be practical to use accommodation anywhere else.

The accommodation consists of a variety of bungalows and campsites.

Only book your accommodation directly via the conference organisers. Do not use any another website or agent. We have secured all the accommodation. Details on how to book accommodation will be made available on the website.

When you drive through the imposing gates into Skukuza you find yourself in an administration centre abuzz with scientists, rangers, and conservationists. A wealth of knowledge can be gained in the information center, while adults and children can attend lectures in the nearby environmental education centre. A museum has been constructed at the railway siding, which was used on the Selati line in the 1920's. You can have a meal in a restaurant housed in two old railway carriages from the same period.

The restcamp is located in the southern region of the Kruger National Park. Also worth a visit is the Campbell 1929 Hut Museum. This national monument was one of the first tourist huts to be established in Skukuza and houses interesting relics from the period.
