Directions to Satara Camp
Spend a few days in Satara Rest Camp, and hopefully you'll prove the old adage that Satara is lion country. While no sightings in the Kruger Park can be guaranteed, this region of the reserve is widely regarded as offering one of the best chances to encounter these majestic beasts. But besides its reputation for lion sightings, Satara offers visitors the chance to see a wide variety of other exciting wildlife and birds, as well as a range of other features and attractions that has made it one of the park's most popular camps.
And while popular has translated into busy and bustling, it still offers a degree of escapism and tranquility in the various cottages and accommodation options, which are carefully arranged in a series of circles. There is also a popular camp site in the camp, and the recently completed day centre gives temporary visitors the chance to prepare food and relax without entering the heart of the rest camp.
This rustic camp has a superb reputation among its regular visitors, and is a very good option if you're looking to visit a rest camp outside of the hustle and bustle of the far south.
