Skukuza restcamp is a rather big rest camp with many facilities. We stayed in a family room for one night October 2013. The rondavel is alright with three beds and bathroom. The room was clean but somewhat dated, in need for an upgrade. It is okay, but do not expect too much. The shop was okay, but they had run out of supplies regarding groceries etc. We had dinner at the restaurant down by the river. The food was okay, but nothing special. If Skukuza is you first stop in the park, bring your own food and do the Brai – barbecue instead. It is a much better alternative.
Our daughter was looking forward to take a dip in pool, but the water was dirty and the pool area was terribly managed which was a real disappointment. In the Kruger park we also stayed in Satara which we preferred due to the atmosphere, location and feeling of the camp.
