About Skukuza Rest Camp Kruger National Park SANParks
Skukuza is the Kruger National Park's largest rest camp and administrative headquarters. It is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. The camp is well foliaged and there are some lofty trees along the river’s edge. Activities and facilities are diverse, as are the animals and plants found both within the camp and in the surrounding areas.
Please note the rates displayed are subject to the number of adults as well as children staying, hence we advise guests to request the appropriate tariffs.

12. Although the online reservations facility will allow different types of units to be booked in the same camp for consecutive nights, it will remain the onus of the Operator to inform their client to pack up, vacate and check out at 10:00 of the unit occupied the night before and then to check into the unit for the next night, only after 14:00 that afternoon.

I enjoyed my stay at the camp, it was spacious, the bathroom was clean, my only problem was the plugs, they were not the normal ones where you can just plug the extension and charge your phone, you had to buy something at their shop in order to be able to plug.
Logement original : cuisine, table et chaises à l'extérieur en terrasse. Pas de grille pain, pas de poële, peu de couverts (ex une seule petite cuillère !).Original housing kitchen, table and chairs outside on the terrace. No toaster , no stove , no cutlery (eg one teaspoon !)
We loved staying there and wish we could stay longer!
The camp is well laid out and we had a very comfortable well equipped two double bedroom bungalow on the riverfront. Service and cleanliness was very good. We self catered but the staff cleaned the braai and serviced our rooms daily. Our daily game drives in all directions yielded terrific game viewing including close ups of 4 of the big 5, sadly no leopards. No hesitation in recommending.
We had a wonderful camping experience at Skukuza. So much interesting wildlife within the camp. Also loved the hydroboils where we could fill our flasks with instant hot water. Who has time for boiling a kettle when there is so much game to be seen. The swimming pool came in handy for the children. Only one problem area was noted and hopefully will be addressed. The staff were friendly which is lovely to see. Thank you for the lovely experience.
