We were 3 in Kruger over a long weekend and stayed in the park in a government run rest camp. This is run by SAN Parks a govt. of South Africa parks organization and provides an affordable alternative to the expensive private lodges. Skukuza is one of the larger rest camps in the Kruger National Park and we were happy with our accommodation. We were in #152 which comfortably slept 3 in 3 single beds. It was self catering. The kitchen/dining is part of the the little covered patio/balcony in front. There is an adjacent parking spot for 1 car. Each cottage also has a small outdoor grill. We had no one in front of us and a short 2 minute walk to the camp shop, restaurant and cafeteria. We spent $150 per night for the 3 of us and brought our own food.saving on eating out. There are monkeys around and you have to be careful to keep your food stuff away when you are not there. The fridge has no lock and will be raided if you do not turn it around and push it against the side wall so that the door cannot be opened.
We took some of the game drives and were not particularly impressed. They were okay and we expected to see a lot of animals, but I guess even having a trained ranger cannot not guarantee that. The early morning game walk was more fun and we were on foot protected by 2 armed rangers.
Next time we will try another rest camp in the park. The roads are tarred and wonderful but there is a 50 km per hour speed limit, and you cannot get out of your car. We saw lots of elephants, a few lions, wildebeest and kudu, plenty of impala (more than any other animal there), a few rhinos, many giraffe, baboons, zebras and birds. We wish we had an SUV instead of sedan as that affords a taller vehicle to view animals from.

Room Tip: Buy your beer at the shop. It is half the price of the cafeteria.

Being our 2nd trip back to Kruger , we knew Skukuza camp is not to be missed.
It's a big busy camp but what is surrounding the camp make up for everything .
Camp has everything you need for BBQ and the night drives are fantastic! A must go! Service is average.

We brought our family out from Australia to experience Kruger National Park for 3 weeks. The 10 of us stayed in Absa Guest House at Skukuza for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The Guest House was very roomy, having separate units for sleeping and a huge separate living area which was very well furnished, huge and extremely comfortable. The area was fenced from the rest of the camp so was quite private and the children (6,8,9,10) were able to run around and explore quite safely. The river frontage had hippos, crocodiles, elephants and buffalo to watch and was a constant source of observation. We had wonderful, cheery help from Veronica, who was assigned to the Guest House. We cooked our own meals, having plenty of utensils. In previous years, my husband and I have always stayed in Lion Cottage, on the riverfront, and have always found it spotlessly clean and comfortable.

The camp is clean and you can relax.
You can cook your own meals with a small super market or choose to eat cafe style or more up market.
The staff live with their families at the camp and were warm and friendly.
We spent most of our time travelling the national park with early morning starts and later afternoon returns. So the park was ideal and a welcoming end to the long days spotting the wild life.
The park is designed the suit all the travellers from the budget traveller, campers, family and groups.
We were told by visitors who have been to the park a few times that it is best to visit out of peck season as it can get very crowded.
This was our first visit and we would happily return.
