A bit too commercial and the other chalets are very close by. Many bugs when you put the light on to braai on the stope and there are no lights on the braai. You need to walk to the kitchen and pool areas.

The camp is enormous, but we stayed in one of the great huts with views of the river. We had a great outdoor kitchen, though we didn't make use of it. Instead, we went to the restaurant, which was totally reasonable (the steak restaurant was a nice break from the Mugg and Bean's that are standard elsewhere in the park)....

Well-equipped, modern camp-site capable to accommodate many tourists. There is a souvenir-shop that sells everything you need, a petrol station, a doctor, a restaurant, a playground, a swimming pool. The actual camp- or tent sites are clean and spacious.

When deciding on a self drive through the southern part of Kruger National Park, Skukuza is by far the best place to be. The self catering accommodations are very comfortable and do not compromise the safari experience by being too posh, but on the other hand ensure of the clients' comfort by making sure all basic and essential amenities are...

Slept in a safari tent for our stay and it was awesome. Cleaned daily and tour options in abundance (book in advance as they get filled). Small shop and petrol station onsite to ease your stay and help to ensure you don't end up stuck in the park.

Good facilities at affordable price. Do not forget to check out Lake Panic nearby. Game drive was a disappointment as we felt that we could see more on our own. Lot of things to see and do in the camp.

To make your plans ... first determine what you are after. Skukuza is the administrative headquarters for the Park and all roads lead to this location for a reason ... this is a great place to see game and endangered species management. The accommodations at Skukuza are a-okay, but it is a park (not a luxury lodge). The huts are...

The riverview chalets are very quiet and peaceful. The air-conditioned chalets are clean and tidy. The furniture and equipment requires an upgrade. There's is baboons close the chalets which can be dangerous so ensure that all items are locked away. We also saw lions and buffalo from our chalet. The rest camp is the main camp and has very good...

We took a bungalow and it was great, there is a small shop for food supplies and a good cafetaria, As my wife is vegetarian we stopped at melalane mall out side Kruger and stocked up water...beware sparkling water is soda and still water is regular water.
