Skukuza Kruger National Park

If you want to go fast, go alone

If you want to go far, go together

Discon 2018 is off to a grand start!  All Skukuza accommodation has been booked by the clubs that practiced Walala Wasala  – you snooze you lose!  We have a waiting list for accommodation and are moving to arrange alternatives to staying in Skukuza itself.

Rotary Conference Accommodation

Reservations can ONLY be made with either Constance or Neleni at 012- 4265111. At this stage you will go onto a waiting list.  You MUST quote Number R5717101 and the name of the club You Represent. So before you phone, first enquire from your fellow members on the number of units your club requires. Each club should have ONE representative who secures the reservation and, initiates ONE payment for each of the deposit and final payment.

If you are prepared to miss the evening events, you could book into Pretorius Kop or Lower Sabie; or at a resort outside the park.

Walala Wasala applies to your bookings. The sooner you book, the better the chances that you can get accommodation.  If you wait until conference registration starts early next year, you may not be able to get a place to stay.

Arriving at Kruger National Park

Special arrangements are being made at the Kruger Gate, the nearest gate to Skukuza. If you enter here, you will find that on production of your reservation confirmation, the daily conservation fee will be waived. We are trying to arrange a slick entry process to speed you through the gate. Note that the gates will be instructed not to allow non-registered walk-ins.

Kruger National Park Rules.

Please remember the Kruger National Park has a strict set of rules, laid out on your entry permit.  In particular, please take note:

  • Speed limits are strictly applied, particularly to people speeding to a gate deadline.
  • Malaria prophylaxis is strongly recommended and should start a week before you enter the Park.
  • Recent experience has shown the danger of sticking any part of your body out of the window, and indeed windows should be closed when dangerous animals are near you.
  • All meat products you take with you must still be in their commercial packaging.
  • All visitors must have positive identification.


Skukuza has a unique golf course and block bookings have been made for you on Thursday and Friday.  Please contact [person] on [phone no] or [email] to book and pay for your fourball.

Dietary requirements

All lunches and the dinner are buffets, which will allow those with most dietary requirements to choosethe items that suit them.  If you have special requirements, please note these on the registration form.
