Orpen Restcamp
is located in the Kruger Central area of Kruger National Park in the Northeast region of South Africa.

Set on the southern bank of the Timbavati River just beyond the Orpen Gate entry into the park, this place is relatively small, with accommodation for around 60 people in 9 multiple-roomed chalets. Facilities include a pool, restaurant, shop, laundry and filling station. Walking safari and night vehicle safari can be booked at reception.

- located next to a main entrance gate
- impersonal restcamp
- high visitor traffic
- traffic congestion at wildlife sightings
- basic facilities
- small pool
- relatively simple build
- non reserved guests allowed access

Orpen Restcamp is aimed primarily at domestic self-drive traffic and budget bus tours. Even for these people there seems little reason to overnight here, unless perhaps all the accommodation further into the park is fully booked. Not somewhere that we tend recommend to our guests.
