Satara is a busy camp, and not without reason. It is situated in an excellent game viewing area, with the bush relatively open and the animals plentiful and diverse. The camp itself has a rustic charm, with the bulk of the accommodation set out in a series of circles. Satara is well wooded and the bird-life is prolific. At night the clink of fruit bats is fused with the chirping of cicadas and crickets. The calls of owls and nightjars add to the symphony that is punctuated intermittently by the whoop of hyena, the screech of jackal and the roars of lion.
Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Park and is the largest of the northern region’s 3 restcamps. It is a somewhat old-fashioned (though modern), friendly camp of lovely trees, impalala lilies and bungalows with shady verandahs.
A few scenic game drives from the camp is available, like the one following the Shingwedzi River in a south-westerly direction towards Tshange lookout point, or south-east towards the Kanniedood Dam and Crocodile Pool near the Mocambique border. The riverine forest around and north of the camp is home to a number of Kruger Park’s leopard community, as well as a variety of other game species.
