Satara Rest Camp is the third biggest rest camp in the Kruger National Park. It is the only 'plains camp' in the Kruger because it is not situated on a river or near mountains / hills.
The area around Satara is famous for its plains games which in turn brings the predators......
Satara offers a petrol station, a swimming pool and children's play area....
A well stocked grocery and curio shop. We have always found what we need at the shop.
An auditorium and an information centre....
there is a takeaway for guest who are wanting to get back on the road, or you can sit at the lovely restaurant with a view over the garden.....
The accommodation at Satara Rest camp ranges from Guest Houses, family cottages, bungalows to camping sites; the campsites have power points, communal ablutions and communal kitchens.....
The bungalows are set out in a series of circles looking onto each other. The bungalows were not very private but in 2009 reed fences were erected between the bungalows allowing for more privacy.
Most of the bungalows have a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, stove, cutlery and crockery, kettle, en suite bathroom, air-cons and a small veranda with table, chairs and a braai.
Guests can also stay in one of 3 guest houses; Stanley, Frankel and Wells, which all have a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge freezer, gas cooker, microwave with grill, kettle and toaster, lounge/ dining area and a large patio. Stanley Guest House is set in its own grounds (marked private) and its outstanding feature a view over a floodlit waterhole.
Satara has two waterholes, one in front of the Guest House and the other in front of the main restaurant area, but it is not easy to photograph animals coming to drink because the fence is so high.
Take a walk round camp with your camera, there is always something to photograph, like the murals in the day visitors area or owls in the trees....

The S100 is a very popular road and many cars rush down this route to see if this is their lucky day!
We like to get away from the crowds, so prefer to do the S90, we have had some good sightings around the Satara area like; cheetah, lions, wild dog, leopards and the large herds of Zebra, wildebeest and elephant.
There are a few dams, waterholes and a hide in the Satara area which provide good sighting....
