We spent three nights here and were pleasantly surprised with the chalets. They weren't luxurious but had a nice atmosphere inside and were quite comfortable. We were with friends whose parents live in South Africa and the parents came with their camp trailer and camped. That area looked quite nice. They even had a community area where one could take dishes and wash them in a sink. We saw plenty of wild animals driving on mostly dirt roads surrounding this camp. When we left Kruger we drove down by Skukuza and didn't see any game. We also drove one day up to Oliphant and that looked very nice. One night a herd of elephants came by the fence and drank at the tank. Another night a herd of cape buffalo came by also. The restaruant was average. I took the early morning hike which was okay but don't know if I would recommend it. It was $40 and even though we saw some hippos, zebra and cape buffalo, they were far off. Saw much more in the car.
- 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
