Satara is a good rest camp in kruger NP. There is evidently plenty of big game in the area and the game drives and walks are well worth doing. Tevin, who took us on a sunset drive was superb and great fun - we spotted plenty of animals including lions, leopards, cheetah and hyaena! The swimming pool was nice, although underused. As with all the rest camps the price is very reasonable and the food was average (though inexpensive). Self catering facilities available but you need pretty much all your own stuff. Well stocked and decently priced shop. Just a bit less of a natural feel than some other rest camps - maybe due to the size?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion. ... more less
