We travelled to Satara for a day visit. We did not visit this part of the park before and was looking forward to it. The view of the waterhole and the animals there, were great.But this is as far as it goes.We ordered breakfast and was terribly disappointed. My children did not touch their burgers and my breakfast was just awful. The mushrooms tasted days old and the bacon looked so un appertising. The service was appalling. This is the kruger park. Surely the standard should be very high considering we are gearing up for 2010. I love the park and have visit on many occasions. we have no complaints about Skukuza and Lower sabi. But Satara, I dont think I would want to visit you again. While we were on holiday at Hoedspruit we ate a lovely restaurant called the Safari club at the Raptors View Estate. The service and the food was exemplary. Someone at management level should visit the establishment and take a leaf out of their book.
- 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
