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.

"Poor Maintenance an issue!"
We love to visit Kruger whenever we are in South Africa. For ani mal sightings it really never disappoints. On this trip we witnessed (off a main road totally unexpectedly) a leopard kill as well as all of tnbe other big 5. We always tell ourselves that you don't stay in the park for the accommodation but for the easy and early access to animals and night drives etc and the stunning camp boundary views you can have from some accommodation units BUT things are not what they were! On this trip we stayed at Lower Sabie, Lataba and Satara . We found routinely thats accommodation units were tired and dated. Air con not working or so noisy as to be impossible, hooks literally falling off the wall, lots of signs imploring us to save water but toilets leaking and taps almost falling off the wall do not help! This all adds to a sense that San Parks is simply not investing and maintaining these places. The rates charged are on a par or sometimes more than some of the lovely accommodation just outside the park so unless things change business may well be lost. Staff were generally great (particularly cleaning staff) although those on reception too often seemed indifferent or aloof and badly in need of some genuine customer service skills. On our next visit we will probably book a few days in the park (even if it's 3rd class accommodation at 1st class prices) but then mix this with days around the park in more comfortable surroundings. If you intend to enter the park reasonably frequently get a Wildcard from SanParks to save on daily fees!
"Nice stay with memorable bush walk."
We stayed for 2 nights in Satara rest camp. We found the cottage clean and comfortable and slept well there. Restaurant was OK, although the dining area is a bit dark with less of a view than the few other rest camp restaurants we have seen. We did an early morning bush which was nice but not totally remarkable - until we were suddenly 20 meters away from 2 rhinos hiding below a tree. We tried to get closer but apparently oxpeckers warned them, and the 2000kg rhinos run away. This remained one of the most memorable moments from our KNP trip. We can recommend Satara.
"One of my favourite camps to stay in Kruger"
I loved Satara each time I went last year. We stayed in the Bungalows that sleep two people each so we got a couple of them beside each other which was great for Braai that evening. Each time the bungalows were spotless with sufficient amount of electric sockets for recharging cameras etc, clean towels and fresh sheets out bright and early ready for the next morning's people obviously to arrive later on that day. The "kitchen" area/veranda part can be crawling with Vervet Monkeys in the morning so be warned not to leave anything out. I left a Guava juice bottle out and all hell broke out. It's so lovely to have your own shower one of the nights that's why we liked to pay a little extra one evening and invest in a bungalow. Great location before heading down South. Loads of lions. Loads! We have a really cool sighting of a leopard in a tree too nearby. Really is a cool place to stay. May I suggest do it in the middle of your Kruger trip like we did if you want to keep on a low budget.
"Great location- lots of lions around"
The Satara rest cams has to us probably the best location out of all rest camps. This was our second time and the sightings around did not disappoint!!We saw lots of lions (road s100 & s41) and other animals. We talked to another couple and they saw cheetahs on the same road several times, unfortunately,we were not so lucky. What is great about the camp is that the gate opens at 4.30! - an hour before the main gates open which gives you the exta time to see the nocturnal animals. One morning, we drove the road s100 and than just 5 mins after we turned right to road s41, we saw a group of 16! lionesses walking right in front of our car on the road for around 20 mins - this was at 5.30am. Another day, we saw 3 male lions resting on the road s41 (when you turn left from s100) - last year we saw whole lion pride with cubs on the same place. So although,the Satara acommodation is very basic and could definitely be cleaner ( Lower sabie's acommodation is much better), we will keep coming back to the area!
"Favourite camp for game viewing"
Beautiful game viewing area with open plains and Big 5 territory. Our huge 6 sleeper bungalow D76 was awesome. Camp needs to renovate pool and keep pool and play area mowed and neat. Camp needs to put signs up warning guests of the serious devil thorn problem on every grassed area.
