Over Krugerpark Satara Rest Camp
Het bekendste wildpark van Zuid-Afrika strekt zich uit over 400 kilometer van noord naar zuid. In het park liggen diverse ‘rest camps’ waarvan een van de bekendste Satara is. Het camp is omheind zodat u ‘s avonds vrij kunt rondlopen en bij het hek oog in oog kunt komen te staan met het wild. Satara in een heuvelachtig landschap en heeft mooi verzorgde tuinen; dit rest camp is de beste uitvalsbasis om luipaarden, cheeta's en leeuwen te zien. U kunt bij de receptie safari's reserveren. Uw verblijf is in een rondavel (bungalow) of cottage. Rondavels zijn stenen huisjes met rieten dak die van alle benodigde faciliteiten zijn voorzien. Veelal is er een koelkast en ook een barbecue zodat u een 'braai' (barbecue) kunt houden.

"Camp is run down"
We love the Kruger Park, and this year decided to stay at different camps. Satara is well located, but we were most surprised about the run down and uncared for appearance of the camp, as well as our accommodation. The 2 bedroom accommodation was certainly a good size and comfortable, with 6 beds in total. But the lock on the door was broken, the ceiling in the bathroom in bad need of paint, somewhat over run with small cockroaches, the coaches desperately needed a clean. The camp is large, arranged in circles, so it is difficult to get a view of the bush. All circles were unkept, the grass long and patchy, large branches lying around. Certainly not reflective of the other camps I have stayed at. The pool was green. The toilets in the main reception area were very dirty by the end of the day, with over flowing bins. Worse thing was a cleaner appeared at 6 am to clean whilst we were on a game drive but my mother was still in bed. Instead of leaving, the cleaner continued to clean, even making the bed in the room where my mother was sleeping! Come on Satara, you are letting the Kruger Park down!
Although large we actually enjoyed Satara. We saw heaps of lions on the way up and had a magnificent leopard siting on the road. Would recommend it as it is central and you will see the big five. The accomodation is fenced off but there is a lot of bird life and we also saw an African Wild cat who stays in the park.
"Central in the park, large and busy"
Our family visited December 2016, peak season. The camp is huge with about 700 units in 7 large circles and caravan park. You do not feel that you have neighbours all around. Accommodation is basic, but clean and tidy and in the traditional rondavel style huts, small but with sufficient shade outside seating.There is a small swimming pool to cool of in and they have an excellent store. Take away pizza are even available for Debonairs. It is good to explore surrounding areas and game viewing is good. Accommodation is basic with outside kitchen and fridge. No microwave, so get the pizza or decide early on what your want to barbeque. A bit too commercial for my taste but less so than further south.
"Sparse, but good home base to explore Kruger"
This place appears to have been a fantastic place back in the day, but it hasn't really been updated since. It was still a nice base to explore Kruger, and I would stay here again. We traveled here with a large group of 15 in January of 2016. We stayed in the huts, as well as the Wells Guest House. Since we ate and hung out in the main area, the guest house ended up not being necessary. The rooms were clean-ish and sparse. They were good enough to get a good nights sleep. The restaurants were just ok. They were out of several things, and often took quite some time to deliver. The main store was fantastic, and it was pretty well stocked. The pool was not clean, and we did not attempt to spend time there. For tours we did a morning walk, which was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend it. We also did a sunset tour, which was also great. By the end of spending 2 nights in the park, we managed to see the 'Big Five' before we left, so we felt the tour guides did an excellent job on that front.
"Cats area, well run camp"
We stayed 2 nights at Satara Camp, great location to enjoy Kruger, lots of cats in this area, we saw over 20 lions in the 3 days there, 3 leopards, and all the usual big 5 plus more. They do a good job here, we had 4 roundels as we were 8 people, all but one of the ac worked, we did not notify them until we were leaving as we did not know until 10 pm when the front desk was closed due to power being off. Good store there, enjoyed a nice game drive, got very close to about 6 or more lions at first light. Highly recommend this camp if attending Kruger. The Mugg n Bean Restaurant is quite good. Lots to see here. Do book early as this camp is one of the busiest in the park. If you can get the roundels along the fence you will be able to see the veld from your porch or front yard. We experienced 43 degree weather which was tuff but also cooled off at night to 26, you can braai on your own, kitchens are outdoors which is nice. Good wine selection at the store with everything one needs. If your in that area a 2 hour drive up to Lataba is well worth it, fantastic elephant museam which is free, n nice easy driving with lots of scenery to check out, we saw tons of good sightings just staying on the tar road. Several view spots where you can get out of your vehicle, Ill post some photos for you all to see, not all that great as its was overcast but also nice to get an idea of what to expect and expect the unusual. A tid bit, next to the mens room at the office there is an owl that lives in the tree, seen him 3 times over the last 3 years, hard to spot, was amazed to see it still there, took a photo but mostly hiding behind leaves, see if you can find it. This area is also known for spectacular African sunsets and sunrises Good job and thanks to the staff for a good job. Happy Game viewing to all ! and a happy New year in a few days !
