Skukuza like lots of the SAN Parks Kruger rest camps misses being a top option. Location great but nothing ever improves. The Rondavel had been updated but bathroom fixtures were not rounded, the grouting was awful and the shower drain full of several seasons of human hair. The new fridge had no lock against baboons or monkeys and did not fit under the shelf so restricted the kitchen area. We enjoy the rustic effect and laugh about the failings but the management of the camps is wasting a fantastic opportunity to show the world the best of South Africa. We are from the UK and have been coming back for years but unfortunately rest camp standards are falling along with value for money and private camps are improving and some becoming better value.
We had a quick look at the golf course which we were impressed by. The hereby Lake Panic bird hide in spring is a must visit place.
