This was our first experience of a self drive safari in the Kruger and it was excellent. Camp is fully fenced so safe at night from large predators. Gates open at 6 am and close at 6pm so don't be late returning from your afternoon drive. Chalets have basic furniture but have comfortable beds and good showers. Great way to...

We usually stay in the southern part of the KNP but decided to try Satara for a change. It was a good choice. Our bungalow was clean and well-appointed - obviously not up to elite game lodge standards, but you get what you pay for! We took guests from Oz whose bungalow in another part of the camp was not...

This was the second Kruger rest camp we visited and we treated ourselves to the 3 bedroomed, 9 sleeper Stanley Guest House. The house is entered through the kitchen which had good working space, and included a fridge freezer, gas cooker, microwave with grill, kettle and toaster. The living/dining area was large with armchairs for 8 and a dining table...

Great bungalow in "A" circle, clean and close to the swimming pool. We reported to the housekeeper that one of the plates on the stove wasn't working, she said she would report it to her supervisor. True to her word the maintenance men arrived shortly afterwards and replaced the broken plate 👍 Thanks KNP for a great couple of nights

We stayed in a perimeter bungalow in Satara for the third night of a three-night stay in Kruger. When we pulled up, our bungalow was surrounded by vervet monkeys who scattered once we stamped our feet a few times. Compared to our previous nights in Skukuza and Lower Sabie, the room in Satara was a bit smaller and dingier. The...

Satara rest camp is a very nice and relaxed camp inside krugerpark. The restaurant is okay (nice burgers), and the cottages are basic but fine for the night. The view is perfect and it is very easy to do an early morning drive through the park. We will come back for sure!

We booked a perimeter bungalow and this was nicer than our previous accommodation in this rest camp. Rooms are basic and kitchen is outside. Rooms have comfortable beds and the AC worked well. As other travelers have mentioned maintenance appears to be lacking. There is always something that is not working well or needs replacement. That said, it is still...

We visited Satara rest camp at the end of October for 3 nights as two couples. Great camp but on our arrival we found that one of the aircons in our bungalow (D89) did not work. This was reported to the camp management and they then moved us to D86. The aircon here worked well but we found that not...

We booked way ahead so as to get a good location, and were not disappointed. Our bungalow was situated just steps from the perimeter fence which made for great game viewing both at night and in the early morning hours. The bungalows along the fence are rounded, so designed for maximum privacy on the patio. It was clean, safe, and...

Basic stay. But clean and a good place to stay for the night. The rondavels have airco, a fridge, a outside kitchen. It's a Quit place. The restaurant en shop are good. Not the cheapest in South Africa. In the restaurant we had WiFi. We left early and saw lots of animals. Satara is the best place for spotting cats....but...

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
