We had a family unit for 5 adults so size was excellent. Well maintained but not properly cleaned. As usual, forget about the restaurant - you need to braai. This is Kruger.
Night drive staff were a disgrace. First night truck did not start and no backup. Could have happened 20 km into the park - radio did not work. Second afternoon the guide knew next to nothing, and her assistant, Moira, was a complete waste of space. Some basic historical and environmental training would have helped. Even a guide book would be better! As usual, foreign tourists also get ripped off by the levy equivalent to the accomodation fees
- 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
