Skukuza is a big restcamp with a very decent new restaurant, Cattle Baron. (Better than Mugg & Bean in my opinion.) Location is very good for game viewing in the area. This time, we stayed in a bungalow (LB2D) which was surprisingly nice! Maybe this is one of their newer or renovated bungalows?! (Because I remember previously staying in one... More

Some might find the size of this camp a bit off-putting but it is very well run. We were fortunate to stay at the Nyathi Guesthouse so we essentially had our own area overlooking the river - a spectacular view and a v nice house. One thing people should know about these bigger houses however is that the ALL 4... More

Spent 6 nights in the park - staying at various parks board accommodation. Cattle Baron restaurant was lovely, location and animals fantastic. But of the 5 camps we stayed at this was by far the worst accommodation as the bathroom was very mildew and caused room to smell

Skukuza, being the largest of the rest camps, has everything you could need. The check-in staff were extremely helpful, and pleasant. We stayed in a safari tent, which was absolutely spotless. It was very hot, but the fan worked a treat.

We stayed in Skukuza 2 nights in a bungalow on a recent 4 night trip through Kruger (in Pretoriskop and Satara the other nights). By far, Skukuza had the most amenities and best food options. I like the location--really close to the river, fun animal-watching at breakfast/lunch. Easy to head out on drives and find a ton of animals (check... More

We spent a few nights at Skukuza Rest Camp during our trip through South Africa. The huts are well-equipped for cooking, bathing and sleeping and kept very clean. Due to the fact that there is no air con in the bathroom it can get very hot there. Game drives depend on the luck of the draw really. We were very... More

This is a very large camp. We stayed in 4 camps in total (Punda Maria, Shingwedzi, Pretoriuskop and this one). Views from the restaurant are excellent. It's located right at the edge of the river. Restaurant is the best we encountered in all of the 4 camps. We stayed in a BE2 bungalow. Nice and roomy, but a noisy A/C.... More

We stayed in Skukuza rest camp during our trip to Kruger. We entered the national park through the Paul Kruger gate and this was the first camp. Our first day excursion was from Paul Kruger gate all the way to Crocodile Bridge via Lower Sabie and back. We were a little late (past the curfew) while coming back from our... More

Skukuza can be reached by plane, bus or car. Check-in in the early morning is an ethereal experience as everyone and everything is just waking up from the previous night's game drive, and slowly getting into the swing of the day. Rondawels are well-equipped for cooking, bathing and sleeping, and are ok value for the price. Animals frequently come into... More

Great view of the river. Best shop in the Kruger. But very disepointed with the Cattle Baron restuarant, it's super expensive. Camp site is to full and crowded. Bathrooms, lawns and gardens aren't nearly as neat as it use to be.
