Wish I could say I've stayed at very south end Kruger camps, but have not. Have stayed like CB says at Letaba, also Satara and Olifants and like all three. In central-south area. Probably pick Olifants if had to choose one of those.

Hmm I looked on the Sanparks website and all the camps are booked out for our dates.

I looked just now at the Sanparks website, and saw bungalows available for most of August and September at Berg-en-dal, Skukuza, and Lower Sabie. I didn't look at other camps.

We have loved Berg-en-dal as a camp -- nice bungalows and a beautiful swimming pool. We've had good game viewing there too. The tents at Lower Sabie are great, but the bungalows are pretty ordinary. The camp is well-located, right on the river, and you see hippos there all the time. I know Skukuza is big, but it's also a really good place for game viewing.

Skukuza is Great for us as it is within the shortest driving distance from our home. Appox 500kms. We often go there but do take a Family Suite on the River so we can have our privacy. I often book the Moni Guest House even though its just the two of us. We simply LOVE the Privacy.
Our other favourite which has not been mentioned is Tamboti Camp. Now that is being in Africa all on your own. Maybe I should not mention it as then you will all go and we won't get in. Seriously, this camp is very well worth while. No hordes of people, no Restaurants, no Tourist Busses and no Shop. Just two types of Tents, one with and one without en-suite facilities. For the ones without en-suite facilities there are ablusion blocks. Shopping can be done at Orpen Gate or Satara Camp. We normally book a Luxury Tent for ourselves for 4 or 5 nights and I tell you it is pure bliss.
Check it out.

Yours on Safari
