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 just on the other side of the fence, only meters away. The major problem with these rondavels especially for foreigners is that they are tiny: just walking space around the bed and nowhere to put your suitcases. There are other room types but not on the perimeter.
We did not try the restaurant, but they have a well stocked supermarket where you can find everything you need to have a BBQ or braii as they say in Africa.
You have an outside kitchen on your balcony. You really need to lock the metal door which protects the fridge otherwise monkeys will come and steal everything and leave you a big mess.
There is no wifi even at the reception.
Satara also has a gas station and you really need to top up here.
