Check in took forever after rich we were given a broken key and couldn't get into the unit. Once in the aircon didn't work in 1 of the rooms, the mosquito mesh was shredded and the oven didn't work. Management was of no assistance in finding us another unit or camp to stay in. I'll come back as a day... More

This was the last camp we stayed at during our recent trip around the Kruger and we were both much impressed with the changes that we noted since our last trip in 2009. Reception was efficient and we were through the paperwork in minutes. Our rondavel was in the A circle, and although not a perimeter hut, we found it... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Satara. Our group of 5 stayed in 3 adjoining 'huts'. These have round concrete walls, a thatched roof and are equipped for 2 including toilet, shower, fridge freezer and barbecue space. The huts are rustic and reasonably basic but comfortable. We ate at the Mugg and Bean restaurant which was excellent with... More

Satara Restcamp is located in one of the best game viewing areas of Kruger National Park. The accommodations are simlpe but you will find everything you need. We just spent the night at the camp, so we're not able to talk about the surrounding too much, except that you will find a restaurant and a shop. A suggestion of us... More

Accommodation is basic, on the small side. But clean and gives you easy access to great game viewing. Helpful, pleasant staff. Mugg and Bean, and Debonairs a vast improvement on old tired restaurants.

We arrived at Satara after our first full day of driving in the park. The first thing which struck us was the size of the place (we had spent our first night at Berg-en-Dal, a much smaller camp). Reception was efficient and our group of twelve were split between a three bed bungalow and the Stanley Guest House. This is... More

Another frustrating Kruger campsite. Big and open, with little shade. People who haven't paid for power occupy the powered sites (they just don't plug in) which meant that we had to circle for 20 minutes before we found space with a power outlet (and this was 11 am, not late afternoon!). The Park authority needs to sort this out.

We stayed in one of the bungalows on the perimeter, a much nicer setting than many of the interior bungalows arranged in circles even though there isn’t much of a view. We could hear lions at night, which was quite a treat – the camp is also well-situated for lion viewing nearby. As at other SAN Parks rest camps, the... More
