I know many people says that this camp is to busy, and yes it can be, but having said that it is still one of our favourite camps - IF one can get a river view bungalow. We always stay in Skukuza during the middle of the week and have stayed there on several occasions. It was very quiet and peacefull. We just looove these bungalows and the view with hippos and bush babies waking us up during the night - pure bliss! There are many roads to travel around this camp with great sightings. Staff have always been very friendly towards us.

I stayed over a weekend and was privileged to have one of the guesthouses on the edge of the camp, so after check in .

We arrived I the camp at around 2pm and it took about 45 minutes just to check in. Then we decided to go down to the restaurant and fast food area. On arrival, I thought that maybe there was a political rally or music concert or something - the place was inundated with people and I was astounded that so many people were in the camp - was like visiting the Rand Show on opening day in the olden days!

I suspect that the Kruger Park is now allowing so many day visitors in on weekends and the place is now so damn crowded during this time that the idea of a peaceful and tranquil visit to this camp at the wrong time

Room Tip: I was lucky enough to stay in one of the guesthouses - beautiful accom

The reception staff are friendly and most helpful. The camp is clean but can get very busy. Predator sightings around the camp are good with leopards, lions and wild dogs being seen nearly every day.

Room Tip: The river-facing bungalows are nice as they are away from the noise generated by the restaurant and conference centre and you get to see animals by day and night. The February 2012 floods have deposited a lot of sand in front of the camp so animal sightings from the camp should improve!

We stayed in nine camps so its a reasonable assertion to say Skukuza aws not up there but its not too bad either. Its a very large restcamp so it weels a bit like a small town which probably isn't what you're looking for on a safari. However it does have an ATM, bank, post office and very good shop so if your on an extended trip maybe woth stocking up.
We went to the Selati resteraunt which is situated in the former train station housing the trains and so very nice and the food was decent though the service very, very slow but probably still worth a go if you have good company. We had a six bed hut which clearly had mice in the roof but was comfortable otherwise and situted right on the perimiter. All in all maybe worth a one night stay if you are doing an extended tour of the Kruger

Room Tip: Get a hut on the perimeter fence and get up at 5 to see the animals

In short. We booked for 45. Were told check in was at 11H00. Arrived at 12H00. And then told nothing is ready we must come back at 14H00. Sat next to the road for two hours and went back. Then told there is not enough vehicles for the game drive we booked and paid for and that ten people would have to not go. But after battling for over two hours they say they will try and squash everyone on. Then arrive at the accommodation and no beds are ready. Electricity doesn't work and they still busy cleaning. The staff have a don't care attitude and I can honestly say that all of us will never! Ever! Recommend or set foot back anywhere close to this pathetic place. They are quick to take your money but deliver absolutely nothing in return. So sad to think this is what we expose our international visitors and schools to. No wonder they always complaining about lack of education. This is a prime example why we don't bring our children here. Instead of being a relaxing and educational experience it's purely aggravating and stressful.
