Our family spent two nights at Satara as part of a Kruger trip in July. 1. Game viewing - "Everyone says" that Satara is one of the best spots for game viewing and we agree! The landscape around Satara is more open than elsewhere in the park - in out two nights we saw lions, elephants, rhinos, jacket, buffalo, giraffes,... More

Stayed here two nights with teen son on month tour of Southern Africa. We loved this camp and stayed in one of the cottages which was spacious, comfortable and clean. Enjoyed both night and morning game drives offered through the main office, seeing leopard, lion, cheetah, hyena, and lots of other terrific game sightings. Our guides were exceptional on these...

I like Satara a lot - we had a bungalow with outdoor kitchenette (no oven, but there is a braai). It was spotlessly clean and as described on SanParks website. Great location for wildlife viewing. Everything was good!

Have stayed here many times, previously camped which is ideal for kids growing up - especially if you get a spot right next to the fence - you can hear all the animals at night. We stayed in a 2 bedroom hut in section D of the rest camp. The hut had 2 bathrooms & a large kitchen with all... More

Stayed 2 nights at Satara Rest Camp in June. Once in D and once in E. Night reverberated with lion roars when we were in E. Saw Hyena (not to mention Impala, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, wildebeest) right around the camp. Both bungalows in D and E worked well. D once looked newer and the shower/toilet were very new. All worked... More

Entering Kruger from Orpen Gate we started seeing wildlife straight away. We thought Satara was a perfect choice of camp. The accommodation exceeded our expectations with everything we needed provided in clean, comfortable accommodation. We were impressed with every aspect and the Mug&Bean is certainly an asset if it suits to eat out. Also highly recommend the Sunset Drive as... More

Restaurant was very good had lots of options. We had a two person hut. They had a outdoor show going on that night that both adults and kids loved. Everything was super clean. Reception staff were fantastic. You could comfortable walk to all areas of camp. The morning walk was very good.

Satara is a new camp in Kruger. The accomodiation rooms are clean and new. The trees and planted plants are small so inside of camp is not so green if you compare the other camps in Kruger. There is no river or lake wiew in the camp area so people eat only under the trees in the restaurant

I have been lucky enough to visit Kruger Park since 1995 and Satara remains by far my favourite rest camp. Views may not be as spectacular from inside the camps as at Olifants and Lower Sabie, but once outside the camp gates, sightings are more plentiful and just as spectacular. You are far enough from Skukuza that seeing other cars... More

We just stayed for one night at the Satara Rest Camp and also here the restaurant had just been renovated. It lacks the great views of Olifants or Lower Sabie rest camps. Again reasonable accommodation. We used Satara in transit from Lower Sabie to Olifants Camp.
