Would recommend we stayed at three seperate locations and this area was fantastic for seeing Lions, would recommend the night drive. Comfortable and affordable will go again.

Unexpectedly upmarket experience in this monster rest camp. Rooms are very pleasant with some nice modern touches like the window blinds and cushions on the bed. Our room did not overlook the river but was only a minute's walk away. Ate one night in the buffet restaurant which felt a bit too brightly lit and a bit devoid of atmosphere - probably because there were so few guests! Food is not stunning - apart from the soup. However, as veggies, we were able to eat more than our fill albeit on the side dishes that were meant to go with the meat. Second night ate in the a la carte restaurant which is in the restored station and is extremely atmospheric. Veggie mains included a very good thai curry, a bit of a weird fried food concoction (veggie delight apparently) and a stir fry. Still very casual but recommended.

February 09 marked my second trip to Kruger. I can think of no better place to have a true safari experience on a budget. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's best not to expect luxury: staying at Kruger is essentially like camping. The rondavels are very quaint. we had a kithenette that was adequate. Other facilities include a simple pool, a well-stocked store and two restaurants. Being the largest camp, Skukuza is also incredibly busy. Even during the off season it was packed over the weekend. However, you can't beat the amenities like an ATM, full-service bank and Internet cafe.

I highly recommend Kruger - I'm going back again in June. If you're going to go, there are a few things to note: (1) bring power strips if you have lots of things to charge; (2) bring a good flashlight and perhaps a lantern; (3) stop in Nelspruit if you have time to pick up specialty items, but keep in mind the store is well-stocked; (4) remember the point of Skukuza is easy access to wildlife, not luxurious accommodations, so adjust your expectations accordingly. You will NOT be disappointed by the wildlife.

I also recommend Satara (fabulous for cats) and Pretoriuskop (oldest camp, rhinos and wild dogs all over the place). I've been to, but not stayed in, Lower Sabie, Olifants and Letaba, and can recommend these as well.

Skukuza restcamp is about 15 minutes from the Kruger Park main gate, and the action starts as soon as you enter the park, seeing monkeys and impalas.
We were staying in a deluxe bungalow by the river bank, and first impressions were great. We had AC, an average size bed, nice bathroom with excellent shower, there was even satellite TV. Outside our thatched roof bungalow there was a patio area which had a BBQ, fridge, sink and seating. It was very dark by our patio area during the day as we were shaded by a huge tree which wasn’t the best.
In the mornings and afternoons you can hear the hippo’s in the river as well as the odd monkey in the tree as well as lots of birdlife. The camp has great facilities, a few restaurants, a café with its seating under a thatched roof that has hundreds of little fruit bats sleeping – very cute, a huge shop which carried all the food you could want, plus every kind of souvenir, there was also a swimming pool but we didn’t get to try it out but it looked very inviting each time we passed it. The restaurant we ate in on the last night was an old train station, the seating area is on the platform, the atmosphere is great, the service was good, and the food was ok. The restcamp itself has no lighting as such so at night its pitch black to walk around so you may want to buy a torch. We were there for 2 days and I would sum it up as being excellent value for money, but don't expect luxury..

We stayed at the Skukuza camp at Kruger in one of their bungalows..nothing fancy but great value for money and clean overall...easy access to restaurants, souvenier shops and great safari-type activities....we would recommend this for people looking for a good place to stay at Skukuza and don't want to overspend
