Satara

Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa

With some of the best guaranteed game viewing in Kruger (especially on the N'wanetsi River Road, also known as S100), this large camp sits in the park's central section. The knobthorn veld surrounding the camp provides the best grazing in the park and attracts large concentrations of plains game which in turn attract predators—lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and wild dogs. Despite its size, Satara is very appealing, possibly because of its its tremendous birdlife and general lay-out. Cottages and two- or three-bed thatch rondavels arranged in large circles, face inward onto a central, open, grassy area. Campsites are secluded, with an excellent view of the bush, although they don't have much shade.
