Satara Restcamp - Kruger Park is centrally situated on landscaped gardens in the knobthorn veld which offer the best grazing in the Kruger National Park. Large concentrations of game and lion occur here.

The camp is about 47 km east of Orpen gate, but the gravel road following the Timbavati en route is also well worth the drive.

Due to the water pipeline and watering places in the region, huge herds of antelope species, zebra, giraffe and buffalo are regular sights, and obviously the predators feeding off them. There are also 3 dams in the area, and grazing land is particularly good.

Rare animal species found in the area are eland, nyala, white and black rhino, sable and wild dog. Birdlife is also prolific. The area is known for its spectacular sunsets, and the camp is a very popular.
