We love the Kruger Park, and this year decided to stay at different camps. Satara is well located, but we were most surprised about the run down and uncared for appearance of the camp, as well as our accommodation. The 2 bedroom accommodation was certainly a good size and comfortable, with 6 beds in total. But the lock on the...

Although large we actually enjoyed Satara. We saw heaps of lions on the way up and had a magnificent leopard siting on the road. Would recommend it as it is central and you will see the big five. The accomodation is fenced off but there is a lot of bird life and we also saw an African Wild cat who...

Our family visited December 2016, peak season. The camp is huge with about 700 units in 7 large circles and caravan park. You do not feel that you have neighbours all around. Accommodation is basic, but clean and tidy and in the traditional rondavel style huts, small but with sufficient shade outside seating.There is a small swimming pool to cool...

This place appears to have been a fantastic place back in the day, but it hasn't really been updated since. It was still a nice base to explore Kruger, and I would stay here again. We traveled here with a large group of 15 in January of 2016. We stayed in the huts, as well as the Wells Guest House....

Satara i believe was a fine camp in its day , it was clear though that recently it has run into disrepair and is not being maintained properly. That out the way , the rooms had everything they needed though they were dated. Linen was clean and the camp grounds seemed to be in poor condition - with no detail...

Satara is definitely the Big Cats park. Had a great time here. Its very hot so pack lots of cool clothes. If possible, do food shopping before heading there as it's extremely remote and the shop doesn't offer that much. Unfortunately no coffee and tea is provided in the Rondavels so you have to go to the Mug and Bean...

Basic rooms with AC. An outdoor kitchen, braai and utensils are provided. A Mugg & Bean, convenience store (with meats and alcohol) and a petrol station are located here. Good selection if you're in the area

We went to the Mugg & Bean Restaurant here. The service was really quite awful. We sat at a table that was not clean. We had trouble even getting seated. Food was adequate one we got it. The small grocery store here was stocked with the essentials including liquor and bags of ice. Store service was good

This was our first time actually staying at Satara and enjoyed it very much even thought it is very dry in the area at the moment and I pray they soon get lots and lots of rain. It was however an enjoyable adventure and again the staff at the camp are so special in the way they treat the visitors....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion. ... more   less
