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.

We decided to spend the night here on our visit to the park. The accomodation was fine, not excellent, but served us well. The conditions and amenities were good enough to have a pleasant stay and get some rest. We participated on a night safari which I highly recommend as part

We stayed here in 2 houses of which one was slightly updated and the other not. The location in the park is the reason to stay here, but I feel the rest camp has least to offer of all main camps. The swimming pool was closed for maintenance, but I got the information from the

Whilst the bungalow for two people was fairly basic, the family unit for more people was significantly more spacious and better appointed....it was very comfortable. The restaurant food was disappointing, particularly as we had previously had such a good experience at Mountain

The two sleeper bungalows are arranged in large circles with grassed areas and trees in the middle of each circle. Satara is situated on a flat plain and therefore the views are not as good as in other rest camps and nor is it on a river. For this reason I'd not worry too much about which bungalow you hire. The main attraction is the predators in the area and I can highly recommend a morning walk in the veld with two rangers. A great experience!

Hi, are there tents you can rent for 3 nights?
No tents in Satara. Only chalets or caravan park available. Try Letaba restcamp. They have tents available.

Yes provided you have your own rotor, you will have a signal. I am not sure if there is Wi-Fi near or at the restaurant area.
