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.

"One of the bigger camps in the Kruger Park"
This was the first camp we stayed in on our trip to the Kruger Park. We stayed in one of the chalets on the perimeter of the camp. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. The Mugg & Bean restaurant in camp serves reasonably good food with a variety to choose from. No complaints.
"Nice Rest Camp"
We stayed here as part of our Safari with Wild Wings. Comfy twin bedroom with air con and ceiling fan, fan was very quiet. Kitchen facilities were outside on the veranda and was well equipped. Good braai, microwave and two hot plates. Fridge & freezer also on the veranda also table and chairs. Bedroom and bathroom were adequate, clean and well kept. Safe in wardrobe, 2 bedside cabinets. Windows have mesh to let in fresh air, it was very warm when we were there. Nice and quiet at night and we had Honey Badger and African Wild Cat visit whilst we were having our evening meal. Good shop on site for food, drink and souvenirs at reasonable prices. Mugg & Bean ok for coffee and muffins. Don't expect lavish, this is in the heart of South Africa, just enjoy the experience. Recommended.
"Good place to spend the night"
Nice and clean place to spend the night in the middle of the Kruger Park. The service is ok. Due to the drought elephants came to the water whole directly next to the camp, which can be seen from the restaurants. The room was clean and had everything whats needed for a nice evening.
We got to Satara around 5:00 p.m., and our guide signed us up for the night game drive (220 rand per person for two hours). He showed us where the restaurants were located since dinner was on our own tonight and then took us to our rondavels â€“ C53 and C54. These werenâ€™t very fancy, but adequate. There are two twin beds, a bathroom with shower, with the sink in the bedroom area. Outside we have a nice kitchen area with a fairly large refrigerator, stovetop, microwave and sink. These are for the folks who like to self cater. The buildings are all in a circle â€“ pretty cool. At 6:30 we went to dinner. Dang the prices are so reasonable! I had a small 3 cheese pizza from Debonair (32 rand â€¦ $2.37). The others all wanted to eat at the Mugg & Bean, so I ordered a side salad, chunky fries, and a diet coke from them (72 rand â€¦ $5). Everything was good. We met outside the office for our night safari at 7:45. The vehicle was completely full. It got real chilly driving around in the dark so I had my fleece and hood on and was cold. The night safari was a bit of a bust. We did not see any amazing nocturnal animals. Mostly weâ€™d see impala. A number of the guests also helped by shining spotlights and searching for the animals. Some of them werenâ€™t very good at it and kept shining the light in our eyes instead of on the terrain. I checked the time on my iPhone hoping it would be over soon. Oh well. Live and learn. Canâ€™t always be lucky! We made our way through the unlit area to our rondavels. (Thank goodness for the flashlight on my iPhone!) The sky was dark and full of stars. The next morning we got up at 6:30 for our morning game drive with our guide. Glassy starlings were hanging around our rondavels hoping for a handout. We had a very successful morning of game sighting including: â€¢ Marshall eagle â€¢ Steenbok â€¢ Elephants â€¢ Zebras â€¢ Impala â€¢ Ha de da ibis â€¢ Hooded vulture â€¢ White backed vulture â€¢ White headed vulture â€¢ Kudu â€¢ Bush buck â€¢ Franklin bird â€¢ Dove â€¢ Hornbill â€¢ Ox pecker (on the back of zebra) â€¢ Warthog â€¢ Hippo â€¢ Rhino â€¢ Giraffe It was interesting to see three varieties of vultures in one tree. Our rental van isnâ€™t the best mode of transportation for wildlife viewing if youâ€™re not in the front seat. You have to angle for a spot in the two tiny windows that open up in the back. Other than that, itâ€™s comfortable. At the rest camps in Kruger, they used to list the sighting locations each day of the Big Five. They no longer include the rhino locations. Gotta watch out for the idiot poachers and not give them a heads up on where to locate their next victim. We returned to camp at 9:20 a.m. and grabbed showers and packed up. Our guide came back to pick us up at 10:15. While waiting, my friends talked to a guy who had gone on the morning safari with Satara. They got to see a lion with a hippo kill â€¦ although the hippo was still alive. That would have been gross but amazing to see. Iâ€™d probably have to turn away. We stopped in at the Mugg & Bean and said adios to Satara. Great place.
We would recommend Satara as a good camp to stay at. There is lots to see nearby. We got a perimeter room fairly near the entrance, but this was still quite quiet. The bungalow was a little dated but everything worked fine and had everything you expect. From the room we saw some game (including Honey Badger inside the camp ?) just beyond the fence. The game drives/self drives here are quite good we saw lion with cubs as well as large groups of elephant, hippo crocodile giraffe etc. The â€œMugg & Beanâ€ restaurant at the camp is fine and we enjoyed some nice meals here. Great stay.
