I stayed at the Skukuza Restcamp in October 2012 as part of a tour through Kruger NP and was here for one day/night before moving on. I can say off the bat that I've stayed at many different national parks around the world, and while Skukuza wasn't the best, it was far from the worst, and pretty nice accommodations overall.
- Air Conditioning - and yeah, it worked well, I love it cold
- Ceiling fan - gives you the option of both aircon or the fan or both
- Clean, well-kept room
- I liked how the housing resembled traditional rondavels, a nice touch when visiting a new country
- The bathroom, while dated, was very clean and in good order, no mold, damaged tiling, staining, nothing
- An in-room safe - not what I expected in the middle of Kruger NP
- Nice outside area - a table, chairs, refrigerator, sink, and cooking dishware ready to use
- As mentioned, the rooms are a bit dated, but that stuff doesn't really bother me, figured I should mention it, though
- Beds were a bit stiff and the sheets/covers were a bit thin
- The interior lighting was a bit spotty, leading to a shadowy room at night, but not a real big deal
Again, overall, this was a stop for the night for me - if I was staying for a week, I might want a little more room or a little nicer accommodations, but as others have said, you can't beat the location. I'd definitely recommend it to others, particularly families, seems very well-suited for them.
Thanks for reading, just let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help!
