My family and I spent 3 wonderful days at Kruger. My wife and I stayed in the bungalows. They were simple but very comfortable and clean. My two kids stayed in a tent with two regular beds. All very good and affordable. While drives on paved roads were long, we were rewarded by see many animals in their natural setting.... More

Basic, clean, comfortable accommodation. Everything you need in for a great time in Kruger National Park. The Cattle Barron restaurant has the best steaks I've ever had anywhere! Cooked perfectly. Another plus is the amazing wines. Park has a supermarket that sells everything........including more top wines.

The bushveld experience is great, but the rest camp facilities really could do with some tlc. The takeaway restaurant likewise just needs a bit of a lift up - iro food & facility. Great setting though!

Drain in the shower was blocked. Washing machines were broken. The staff were all very nice and things were all very clean. Checked out other camps but Sabie and... More

We stayed at the camp with Outlook safaris for 2 nights. We stayed in a rondavel hut which has great facilities and was clean and tidy. The camp facilities are great and I was surprised that the food, drinks and gift shop are all reasonably priced, considering the few options in the park. A great mid-range option!

This camp still have the ambiance of the old Kruger Park even with all the new shops and restaurants. This is the main camp in the Park and if you want to explore this camp you will find many historical things in the camp.
