It just doesn't get any better than this. Cozy, comfortable accommodation and all the wildlife of Kruger. It's basic, but what more do you need than a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a braaie? And of course as always in Kruger, the staff are fantastic.

Our family of four stayed in satara camp for 2 nights . Satara does not have the view like Lower Sabie but is apparently good for the viewing lions which we did. The rondawels are clean , beds are good, shower water was nice and hot.No frills but good for what you need. We did morning and night drives and... More

Bathrooms and kitchens were clean. The restaurant was decent. The campground was crowded the week of Easter. The electrical plugs were taken up by other campers by the time we got to the camp, but I was able to charge my camera batteries in the bathroom. I highly recommend the night drives. I wish that I would have signed up... More

Great basic accommodtion, right in park. Just the basics, bring in food and drink as only limited selection available on site. Beds were comfortable and unit was clean. Lots of animals around, but large animals are locked out. Would stay here again

We booked a family cottage. The cottage is enormous! 6 people can comfortably live there for a while. It's also well maintained, and the number of animals roaming around is pretty large and they're fun to watch. There are two restaurants: one pizza place (delicious pizza at that!) and a restaurant. Vegetarians are better off eating the pizza.

Sightings & Safari - 5/5 - We were lucky to see 4 full grown lions right outside the camp on the night drive..sheer luck I guess..they were sitting/strolling just 100mts away from the camp gate, right in the middle of the tar road. Food - Best to carry own meat, food & drinks..there are resturants but mugg & beans -... More

The Satara Restcamp is in quite good condition, and reasonably well-maintained. The restaurant is now a Mugg & Bean, and a huge improvement on what was there before. It has a well-stocked shop with a good range of merchandise including fresh produce. Our accommodation (two huts) was OK, and had a with fridge (behind secure wire door), and hotplate and... More

satara was our last stop in the kruger and of the 3 camps were we could find a booking for camping, the biggest. i would say that the ablution blocks might not have been enough for the big camp, no waterhole here, a well stocked shop and the first camp we found that now has a mug and bean and...

old fashioned and lots of flies in the kitchen which needs an update, lots of space and great surroundings outside. Wildlife aplenty. Needs a revamp. This accommodation houses six people, better to go for smaller, newer accommodation in my opinion. Good rest camp with great mug and bean restaurant and gift shop, pool etc...
