Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre
The 2019 Species on the Move Conference will be held in Kruger National Park in north-eastern South Africa. The Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre is in Skukuza, the largest rest camp and administrative centre for Kruger National Park. The rest camp is situated in the southern part of the park on the bank of the Sabie river. The centre can accommodate up to 400 people and Skukuza has a range of accommodation options, including camps, huts and a hotel.
Kruger National Park is considered safe for travellers – all the people you’ll meet are either tourists or staff working for the tour operators, accommodations or park authorities. Skukuza rest camp is fenced and gated, so you can walk to and from the conference centre, accommodation and restaurant.
