The Cattle Baron Skukuza is very good restaurante. Everything we ordered was delicious, specially the steaks. Also a good wine menu. Reazonable prices.

the restaurant has a lovely deck where you can take your lunch and watch the wildlife on the river, I had a top notch steak cooked just how I like it ,with a couple of pints off ice cold draught beer, good food in a perfect setting.

This was busy as might be expected. At lunch time all the outside tables were taken. A staff member sorted us an inside table and service and food was good

I ate a couple of dinners and a breakfast here over a short stay in Skukuza camp. I'd rate the food as good to very good, with competent and friendly service. You have a choice to eat inside, inside-outside (under a roof, but open air), or outside (on the deck overlooking the river). Can't beat the view from the deck!... More

I have had dinner at Cattle Baron 3 times now, we always make sure we stay at Skukuza rest camp when in KNP just so we can eat here. The steaks are super tender and have a delicious basting to them. They come with yummy fries and a choice of sauce. Draft beer on tap, service is always friendly (can... More

The food is great, but be prepared to wait. The service is exceptionally slow, though this isn't too bad when you have the sounds of the bush around. I would suggest trying the venison carpaccio.

It was around 11.30 and we wanted a milkshake. Sat at the outlook and no one came to serve so went searching. Was dismissed as all e many waiters were too busy talking to each other. Was sent to take aways as the did not serve on the look out as they would not be able to "remember" an order.... More

To be fair to the restaurant, we stayed there for a conference, and our judgement may be colored by the many buffets we ate. All very edible, but not necessarily varied or very nice. We tried a burger for lunch one day, and that was tasty enough. There seems to be plenty of staff around. Getting their attention or your... More

Our planned trip from Lower Sabie to Skukuza included brunch at the Cattle Baron. Due to light rain, deck overlooking the river was closed and we were given a table indoors. We ordered two Americanos, an omelette and a bacon & egg mini breakfast. The Americanos were ok but not piping hot. The omelette was similarly "warm" only. We usually... More

First time I visited since Cattle Barron opened in-Camp. We used the indoor restaurant for drinks, and ate from the take-away facility; it was weekend and lots of tourists- and many from out-of-Africa. Your menu is great, variety, price and quality, but the superb way you serve the demand is absolutely great!

Thank Bokwagter
