The accommodation was adequate for our purposes. No complaints, In fact the outside kitchen was very lekke and we had great fun here.
I felt like I was in a bit of a tourist trap though.
The day we arrived, we went to the shop, and there were queues being directed to the till points, Felt like the Woolworths store back home. The prices of supplies seemed to be slightly higher than anywhere else in the park, but for the wood which appear to be a standard R30 per bag. On the up side, the shop was very well stocked and we could get meat and ribs that had not been frozen!!
Our evening drive was great - we managed to get up close and personal with a pair of cheetah. Book the Sanparks drives if you can - the rangers have access to private roads!!!
Having said everything about the touristy flavour, the camp had a great lively vibe about it - an excitement in the air. The perimeter accommodation looked fun and I think I would consider staying here again! Oh and lots and lots of birds!!
- 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
