These were simple huts with soft mattresses and surprisingly not too cold at night. There were screens for bugs but one was broken. Despite being in a malaria zone, there were not many mosquitoes to be seen. We picked this camp due to its proximity to game. We did not hear any lions roar in the night but our lion sighting was close to the camp. The night ride, which was recommended to us, sadly lacked a lion sighting but we did see hippos, civets, jackals, porcupines, and rhinos. Of note, there was only a communal kitchen in our entire compound although we had our own grill to use.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion. ... more less
