Skukuza camp has African charm and all amenities and facilities, a little shopping and a somewhat limited choice of meal options for those not self catering.
The camp is clean and has some wonderful views and its surrounds some spectacular game viewing. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Our chalet was on the river. Nice and neat. Very clean. Lovely lawn area in the front. A more modern chalet but still have that amazing bush feel!
