As staying on campsite there is little choice if you want a reasonable evening meal. Prices are reasonable and fillet steaks were excellent. Only hiccup was a power-cut for both meals. Lucky that it did not spoil evening meal as food was just about ready at time. Lack of air con made room quite hot. For breakfast avoided the buffet... More

Stopped for an early lunch on Easter Sunday whilst on a day trip into the park. Food was plentiful and excellent, and the service attentive. Skukuza have got it right as much as Letaba have got it wrong. the venison carpaccio and the chicken parmegana are to be recommended

If you want to treat your taste buds to a great milkshake, look no further! The setting is great. We saw 2 elephants while sitting here.

Had a fantastic meal, food was fantastic and plentiful. Waiter very attentive to our 2yr old granddaughter despite it being a busy evening. Wine excellent and we couldn't believe the value - £100 for meal, wine and tip! One of the best we had in South Africa.

We stopped here for both brekkie and lunch whilst on safari in Kruger Park and we were delighted with both. Delicious cooked eggs and bacon and restorative coffee, followed by heavenly burgers and salads for lunch. Make sure that you sit out on the terrace for the perfect view of the river Sabie and it's wildlife!

Service although slow was good and the staff were friendly. I have seen a number of reviews giving poor as their feedback. It must be said that the location of National parks and the logistical and ordering nightmare they must pose to any restaurateur must be tremendous and guests need to sometimes take this into account! I ordered the calamari... More

Had burgers from the adjacent take-away restaurant, which I think is affiliated with Cattle Baron. Venison burger didn't taste like venison. Burger patties were clearly formed and cut by a machine, and were probably thawed out of a freezer. Ordered Pap and Sous to go with...the Sous had exactly zero flavoring. Thankful that I had bought a bottle of Nando's... More

Had lunch here one day. The portions are large. My wife had a burger and I the rib/prawn combo. The wifi only worked intermittently so don't count on it.

Restaurant is on site at Skukuza Camp. It is large and can accommodate those staying at the village for dinner. Full menu with wide range of choices and drinks. Fairly efficient in the service with just a bit of a wait at peak times 7-8PM. Open air or inside dinning. Moderately expensive.

Thank Richard J
