The Kruger never really dissapoints - mainly because you go there for the wildlife and not the comfort of the accommodation! Skukuza is not my favourite camp as it is very busy and I normally prefer more peace and quiet, but we booked our trip a little late and this was the only camp with space. We stayed in one of the luxury chalets which I can highly reccommend as they are on the quieter side of the camp and quite close to the river. The chalets in Skukuza are a little old and outdated, the beds are not too comfortable and the bathrooms are still tiled in those green 1980's style tiles. That said, our chalet was well equiped and the shop in the camp had everything we needed.
