Orpen Rest Camp Location Map

Set on the western border of the Park, Orpen is a small camp. There is no restaurant and the small shop stocks only the bare essentials. There is a pleasant shady area with braai facilities.

There are lots of birds flying around the many trees, and the routes leading from Orpen are rich with game.

Recommended accommodation is in one of 3 guest cottages, which can sleep up to 6 people.
