Cellular Reception and Wi-Fi
Guests can pick up calls at the major rest camps.
Thoroughly defying Maslow’s traditional Hierarchy of Needs, our urgent desire to be connected at all times is now fundamental to life as we know it. Although the Kruger isn’t really the place to stare at a smartphone, cellular reception is available in patches around the major rest camps (but don’t count on high-speed data).
