We enjoyed the wonderful facilities at the conference, and really recommend this venue for international conferences. Food and service at the center were excellent, wi-fi and also a number of break away rooms for group work. The accommodation was very nice - no not hotel like, this is bush and Africa, but clean, and the kitchen was stocked with all...

The bungalow was clean and relatively well equipped for the self caterer. We did intend to eat our meals at the restaurant but there was a power cut to the whole camp and no food was able to be cooked. The shop staff were extremely helpful providing torches to find food for us to cook on our bar b q....

Again we hired a family self catering cottage. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. It is a fairly long trip in time taken from Letaba to the rest camp. That is if you keep within the speed limits. The camp is mostly under trees with many monkeys around to keep an eye on while cooking on the braai. The shop...

Huge camp in the middle of the Southern part of the park, you won't have to drive far to see lots of animals. You might have to go long ways inside the camp and it's always crowded with tourists, the prices in the restaurant and the shops are much higher than somewhere else (post cards are only 20% of the...

We were brought to the cafe at Skukuza for morning tea and lunch break whilst on our day safari. A beautiful spot with lovely gardens, table and chairs outside the cafe and a view of the river and bridge. Cafe has a good selection of foods and the service efficient. The Kruger Park shop has loads of souvenirs and some...

Within KNP, this lodging was just fine. It was clean with towels and the dishes and pans that you could use to make your meals. There is a place for a single car to park at each rondival. There is a store and restaurant where you can get supplies or have a meal. A convenient place to stay within the...

Stayed for one night. Booked a 3 bed unit with closed veranda which is always a good idea in Kruger as the bats are very active at night and sleep at the pitches of the thatchroof chalets and droppings fall all over the area beneath them. With the enclosed units you don't get this problem. Check in was quick. Units...

I was surprised how large this rest camp was. Our place was nice, clean and large. The air conditioning was great and saved my mother and daughter I love that we could easily walk to the restaurant, coffee shop and gift shop. The coffee shop was great, and I loved that we could access Wi-Fi just to let family know...

We stayed in an LB3 bungalow. This was ideal because it was right next to the pool and had a big open grass space in front of us. The bungalow was beautifully done and very comfortable. Loved the fact that we had an enclosed verandah. The staff at Skukuza were very friendly and helpful. The deli and shop are very...

The Skukuza rest camp is a good place to rest, it is very near Skukuza airport so it won't take many time to get there. The accomodation is not very luxury but it provided a safe & quite place to rest. There 's also shop, bank, post office, and gas station in the camp.
