We stayed one night and it was very adequate. Facilities need upgrading and the rooms a good clean and best recommendation I can give is that it was well located to travel through Kruger. We had no expectations so were not disappointed but one would not want to holiday there for long.

Overall experience was good, we had two bungalows and one had bats which kept on passing their droplets onto the bed as well as grass from roof it was bungalow 155, I caught a bad case of sinusitis because of that, its in the jungle after all! The rest of our stay was great, our late night drive was amazing.... More

We had one night at Satara..... Rondavel basic, but had all we needed..... One of the highlights of our entire South Africa trip was the sunset game drive..... Knowledgeable and expert guide...... Once it got dark, we were lucky enough to encounter on/ close to the road a wide variety of game.... Elephant, rhino, hyena, porcupine, wild cat, lion, owls... More

Badly in need of a renovation and some strong management. We had the pleasure of a rat in our sitting room and rat droppings all over the bed linen. By the time this was discovered all the staff had disappeared for the night so there was little we could do other than to sleep in the car for the night.... More

Good base for safari and observing animals. Everything I found appropriate place. Nothing extra impressed, but not offend. Overall satisfaction. The willingness of the reception could be better, but eventually managed to arrange everything. On the one two nights that great.

My trip was self drive through Kruger National Park. This was a simple clean basic accommodation. This is not a resort or a private game park lodge. They do have a couple of stores and a cafe. Open air cinema. You do need to make sure you are there by gate closing time as with any of the camps in... More

Satara camp is and old camp and fairly run down and would need some renovation very soon. Its major asset is its location in the best game viewing part of the Kruger (lion country). The rondavels (round huts) situated on the perimeter do have a nice view and yes, you really can see animals like hyienas and antilopes go by... More

We had a family unit for 5 adults so size was excellent. Well maintained but not properly cleaned. As usual, forget about the restaurant - you need to braai. This is Kruger. Night drive staff were a disgrace. First night truck did not start and no backup. Could have happened 20 km into the park - radio did not work.... More

Fresh ingredienrs for a juicy chicken burger. Very quick and friendly service which is great seeing that we have to exit the park at kruger gate before closing time. Would have been great if they had fans at the restaurant. It is very hot and humid in summer.

We were 1 night in Satara Rest Camp and 2 nights in Lower Sabie Rest Camp. Same price per night, but what a difference in their amenities. In Satara, the bungalow was not clean, with significant amount of spider webs, mosquito nets in very poor condition around windows, air conditioning out of use… We didn’t feel any welcome; we felt...
