The Congress will take place onsite at the international conference facility within Skukuza Rest Camp; convenient and state-of-the-art. The conference centre was designed to blend with the existing safari theme, while still maintaining a high level of comfort, complimented by up-to-date equipment and amenities. The centre is a walk away from all accommodation.

Skukuza Rest Camp is well situated in the heart of ‘Big 5’ territory. The Rest Camp is fenced-in, making it safe to move about freely. Game drives or safari walks into the park can be organised for those wanting to go in search of wildlife. The camp overlooks the Sabie River where big game such as elephants are often found; there is also a high concentration of predators like lion, hyena and leopard. There are a few food options available at Skukuza. You can easily self-cater in your chalet (making use of the camp grocery store) or you can get affordable meals at the quick service café or restaurant.

The Kruger National Park is one of the great wilderness areas in Southern Africa and protects roughly 3 million hectares (an area larger than Belgium). The extraordinary diversity of life here includes the Big Five (Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion, and Leopard) and many smaller mammal and bird species. During your stay you will be given the opportunity to head out and explore this unique environment.
 
South Africa is a country of contrasting landscapes and cultures. Its’ people are united under one “Rainbow Nation” and recent events such as the 2010 FIFA World Cup has meant an improvement in infrastructure and tourism. We so look forward to welcoming you to our little part of African paradise. The Kruger National park brings you back to basics and gives you a wonderful wilderness experience.
