Would recommend like my other two camps we stayed in. Very affordable and clean, friendly people. Good area to see Lions, Cheetahs and also Wild Dogs.

Good facilities and great cheap price, if on a budget you won't be disappointed.

Satara Camp, 30 September 2008
Satara camp area is one of the best game viewing areas I've even been to in South Africa (and I've been to many!). Just a few km outside of Satara we stopped at a waterhole where we could admire lions, giraffes, zebra, elephants, wildebeest and kudu. Amazing stuff! When arrived the camp, we were given lovely chalets with ensuite bathrooms. It was quite basic but one goes to Kruger to see wild animals and not so much stay in luxury. The food in the restaurant is served in buffet style and was ok. The food in all Kruger restaurants in pretty much the same. In the evening it's worthwhile to go and have a look close to the fence because you'll have a chance to see leopards close by, as we did. We also saw upclose an elephant. Good to have the fence! After a good night rest, we enjoyed breakfast in the camp's restaurant. One can choose from a menu or have the buffet again. I choose to have the Greek breakfast with feta, scrambled eggs and pita bread. Very well presented but a bit much for me.

Satara rest camp has a camping / caravan site and also accommodation in rondavels which are arranged in circles of about 25 rondavels per circle.
Each rondavel has a microwave, fridge, cutlery, crockery.
The only problem we encountered was, we arrived after dark and we were given a map of the park and a cross on the map to tell us where our hut was located.
Unfortunately, the park is not lit at night and very poorly sign-posted....so it took us 20 very frustrating minutes to locate our accommodation.
Accommodation is adequate

Satara serves the purpose- cheap, clean bed, clean linens and prime location. Though we didn't hear a single lion roar at night or spot predators near the camp, we were quite happy with our stay. Our bungalow had a kitchennete with fridge. Satara rest camp has a cafeteria that opens at 7am.
We took the evening game drive- it was nothing great. The park service driver/ranger barely gave us any information and was no help whatsoever when we spotted animals. After seeing private game drives, the Kruger game drives are very ordinary- but its good value for price.

The dawn/morning game drives are much warmer and allow you to see baby lions while the parents are still out hunting. All meals are buffet style, and the round individual thatched rooms/huts are great for 1-2 but too small for 3 adults. Most beds are meant for only 1 person, and bathrooms are small, but the huts are arrnged in circle camps and have great trees. Each includes a refrigerator and an outside bbq grill.

A new birding area/oasis on the way from the rooms to the main section is filled with hanging bird's nests, and the grounds are filled with hopping hornbills. The evening game drives are very cold, so bring extra blankets (they sell out early, so try to make reservations in advance). Ask if you can bring extra lights, as only one is attached to each truck. Ask your guide to talk a lot, or it's a long, quiet ride.
