After a day in the Kruger Savannah, watching wild animals of all sizes and nature we landed in the Skukuza Rest Camp. The camp is cleverly designed with small chalets scattered with in the secure Rest Camp. Although the chalets are small they are cozy and well groomed. Our hut was in a short distance from the "center" area where...

Jan first week: For our visit to Kruger, we stayed at the Skukuza Rest Camp. This is a very nice camp with all the requirements. They have a gas station as well. The houses are round shaped with a lounge area outside the room. The rooms are quite basic. Would have liked the bathrooms to be bigger especially the shower...

We stayed in one of the chalets. They're not luxury, but they are very clean and had everything we needed. The mosquito netting around all the windows and doors was essential, and kept in good repair. The air conditioner wasn't all that effective, but it made snoozing in the heat of the day a pleasurable activity! We went on safari...

My family and I spent 3 wonderful days at Kruger. My wife and I stayed in the bungalows. They were simple but very comfortable and clean. My two kids stayed in a tent with two regular beds. All very good and affordable. While drives on paved roads were long, we were rewarded by see many animals in their natural setting....

Basic, clean, comfortable accommodation. Everything you need in for a great time in Kruger National Park. The Cattle Barron restaurant has the best steaks I've ever had anywhere! Cooked perfectly. Another plus is the amazing wines. Park has a supermarket that sells everything........including more top wines.

The bushveld experience is great, but the rest camp facilities really could do with some tlc. The takeaway restaurant likewise just needs a bit of a lift up - iro food & facility. Great setting though!

Kruger park experience was amazing. We saw lots of animals and would definitely recommend it. The cabins are old. Bathroom door was broken. A/C was either too hot or freezing cold. Drain in the shower was blocked. Washing machines were broken. The staff were all very nice and things were all very clean. Checked out other camps but Sabie and...

We stayed at the camp with Outlook safaris for 2 nights. We stayed in a rondavel hut which has great facilities and was clean and tidy. The camp facilities are great and I was surprised that the food, drinks and gift shop are all reasonably priced, considering the few options in the park. A great mid-range option!
