I was situated in this camp for two nights during a recent bird watching tour/safari to Eastern South Africa. The camp was packed with tourists and getting around was difficult at times. The hut I stayed in was decent and clean. The main restaurant had good dinners but the staff and customer service was terrible. One member of our party was double charged (on a credit card) for the dinner and had a very difficult time getting the overcharge taken care of. The staff member (at the main restaurant) taking care of this problem was rude and abusive - maybe they have to deal with so many people that they just don't care anymore, but that is not excuse. I would recommend staying in one of the smaller camps and avoiding this one all togeter. Of course the Kruger itself is fantastic.
