We stayed here for 3 nights and just for those of you that don't know its quite small and very close to the river. The keeper of the camp is not that friendly in comparison to the other camps and the ablutions were also not...More
Absolutely amazing satellite camp away from the hustle and bustle of the busier camps. Clean and well maintained. The only downside is that the rondawals don't have any windows (which result in them being very hot even at night) and we would suggest that an...More
Great nice clean camp and units. Will suggest that they install gauze doors so you can leave doors open for airflow in the rooms. Rooms very hot! Bathrooms nice and clean. Pack a battery operated fan. Very friendly staff!
We travelled to Kruger Park in November 2016 and spent 4 nights at Balule satellite camp, what a wonderful peaceful campsite! If you don't want the hustle and bustle of the bigger rest camps then Balule is a great choice, bear in mind though that...More
One of the nicest places in the park. There's nothing...no noise, no people, no signal, no electricity...Just open skies and hippos snoring. The hostess in charge of cleaning and bringing the candle lit lantern at sunset is the best! Facilities available are more than adequate....More

Deep in the heart of the Kruger National Park, in the most exquisite topography, lies a small satellite camp. Named 'Balule' after the Tsonga word for the Olifants River, this camp is one of the best places for guests to experience nature first hand. Situated more or less in the centre of the Park, just south of Olifants Camp, Balule lies close to the mighty Olifants River. With only the most basic of facilities and no electricity, a low fence is the only barrier that separates you from the wilderness, resulting in a true back to basics experience. It is this unique wilderness feel of the camp that makes it a firm favourite with backpackers, the caravanning community and other visitors who want to get away from it all.
