Spent 1 night here in a safari tent for the experience. Skukuza itself is incredibly busy compared to Berg-en-dal and Pretoriuskop and appears to be the hub for tourists. It was quite a shock after the peace and tranquility of the others. We saw more game near malelane than here but the tent was a great experience listening to the...

This Camp was the last in our 9-day visit to the Park. We stayed for three days. It is the largest camp in the Kruger Park and has all the facilities travellers could want - shops, restaurants, medical facilities, golf course and airport. We stayed in a self-catering bungalow with shared kitchen facilities. The bungalow was comfortable, clean and neat...

We,ve stayed here for the last six or seven years.this year we,ve upgraded to a bigger rondavel. Very big and comfortable. It looks like owners have renewed all sheets and bedding in the last year and it shows. Ac is archaic.

The Kruger park is one of my favorite places in this world - the park is always interesting and it's often the small things that are the most amazing things to see in Nature. We have witnessed many amazing things and will go back as often as we can

Our stay in the Kruger was amazing! Facilities are clean and up to standard, staff are friendly and professional! We saw a variety of wildlife and most of it was close up. Skukuza's food and shops are well stocked and you can get everything you need. Accommodation is affordable and you get value for your money!

We stayed in one of the huts and it was quite comfortable. It was nice to kick back after a long, hot day on safari and relax on the shady porch watching kids running around on the lawn and the neighbours fire up the braai. Very tranquil and communal. South Africans KNOW how to camp out in style! The room...

Great river view bungalows. The camp was well maintained and the accommodation was clean. Yes the accommodation could do with upgrading but this is not going to have a significant impact on your stay. What more does one need? Clean bed, bathroom and all the necessary appliances for a pleasant stay. Bedrooms have airconditoning. Big patio and usable Braai makes...

My wife and I stayed at Skukuza Restcamp just one night at the end of January 2016. We went there after spending 4 nights in very expensive luxury lodges in two private game reserves. The restcamp was very positive surprise. The rooms have all you need; there is a shop where you can buy everything for your own barbecue. Because...

Skukuza is Kruger's main camp and feels like a village. The rooms are 'mass market': basic, clean and aimed primarily at self-catering, domestic visitors. For folks from Europe (such as myself) the restaurant and sandwich bar are okay, and the location for game viewing (It is on the Sabie River) offers promise - though I've not soon much game on...

Skukuza is a big restcamp with a very decent new restaurant, Cattle Baron. (Better than Mugg & Bean in my opinion.) Location is very good for game viewing in the area. This time, we stayed in a bungalow (LB2D) which was surprisingly nice! Maybe this is one of their newer or renovated bungalows?! (Because I remember previously staying in one...
