Kruger  National Park

Have you ever heard about the Kruger National Park? Or even luckier- have you ever been yourself? This is one of South Africa’s national treasures.  Read below to find out more about the special rest camps you can visit and more!

Skukuza Rest Camp

This camp serves as the ‘headquarters’ for the Kruger and it is from here that you can enjoy a meal and their restaurants and can consult the SANParks officials about any quiuires and concerns.

Just a mile away from the Skakuza camp is a birdwatching point for the avid bird watchers. Its an amazing site called Lake Panic. From here you can enjoy the wildlife that all gathers around this lake.

Satara Rest Camp

Satara Camp is one of the best places in the world to see lions, leopards and cheetahs. It is often referred to as the “cat camp” because of the large numbers of lions and cheetahs in the area, which makes it so popular with visitors.

Because the fertile grazing land surrounding Satara attracts vast herds of antelope and other grazers, the large cats that prey on them are in abundance for you to see on your South African safari.

Lower Sabie

Lower Sabie is a camp which graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond.

Visiting this camp, expect the unexpected. The amount of animals in the area make it exciting—a rule of thumb when visiting an river area in Kruger is bound to find some activity. You can also enjoy a wonderful meal at the restaurant on-site!


Because Olifants Camp is situated in a transitional zone, 2 distinct types of vegetation can be found, offering a wide range of game. In the north, the low lying Mopane trees provide cover for Zebra, Impala, Kudu and Elephant.

Game viewing at Olifants Rest Camp is possible from a shaded lookout platform. From this vantage point, you can see Hippopotamus as well as Crocodiles in the Olifants River—and even catch a glimpse of Lions while they’re doing their thing!
