We stayed in the Kruger National Park for 3 nights, and every rest camp we stayed at was brilliant. We started in Skukuza, then drove up to up to Letaba and then we came back down to crocodile bridge. We stayed in the safari tents which were perfect. I think camping would have been too much work and the accommodation...

The rest camp is one of the biggest in Kruger National Park. My friend and I booked a private room with a/c. The room was what we expected, and it was cleaned everyday. The only downside (it is the same in all the camps) is that the shop and the bar close really early, so the only place to hang...

Having been in the park 5 years ago wanted to return and stay on a different campsite. Found this one available when checking at Crocodile Bridge entrance so booked one night with potential of staying longer. Rondaval allocated was OK but air con a bit noisy. Weather was very hot and humid with thunderstorms overnight. Sunset safari was fully booked...

Stayed at Skukuza from 01/03/17 to 05/03/17. The room was well maintained and well serviced. The camp is well maintained. The shop and restaurant is worth visiting the food quality is good. This is the biggest camp and one can expect a very busy camp but again the number of safari day operators was overwhelming I did count the number...

Arranged a 2 night 3 day safari with Outlook Safaris and stayed in the heart of Kruger. Accommodation is simple but ample as you don't have much spare time anyway. Within the camp there is a well equipped shop, take away and restaurant. The huts also allow for self catering. Staying in the park gives the opportunity for twilight safaris...

As it is one of the largest rest camps in kruger , there are many amenities available in Skukuza camp such as restaurants, souvenir shop/ supermarket and petrol station with cleaning service for car. For game drives we went for san parks sun rise drive and saw leopard, rhino, giraffe, elephant, hyena and those common impalas.

We did not stay here but only stopped over for breakfast and for lunch during a day's tour of the southern part of the Park after getting in via Phabeni gate. It is a good stop over place. Very busy. But the local restaurant is geared to serving fast both sit downs and takeaways. Friendly staff. Smiles all round. Clean...

Comfortable accommodation and a great base from which to explore Kruger Park. Facilities at the camp are good with a pleasant restaurant and well stocked shop. It's a great shame that the restaurant on the old train is no longer open. I would definitely consider this camp again.

My daughter and family came to visit from New Zealand, it was out of season, we drove from Malelane gate to Skukuza camp, went to reception, the staff was very helpful, and accommodate us for a week, we had the best meals in the park, driving around every day was a pleasure seeing all the animals close to the road....
