Skukuza is the Kruger National Park's largest rest camp and administrative headquarters and is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River. The camp is well foliaged by the lofty trees along the river’s edge. Activities and facilities are diverse, as are the animals and plants found both within the camp and in the surrounding areas. Accommodation caters to a variety of guest requirements. Choose anything from luxury, self-catering, caravanning or camping accommodation for your stay in the wilderness. The flora, fauna and wildlife of the Kruger Park can be experienced through guided bush walks and game drives. Enjoy your breakfast or a barbecue out in the bush, and visit the Lake Panic Bird Hide and Skukuza Indigenous Nursery nearby. Wildlife films are screened at the camp, and kids' educational programmes are offered seasonally. Through prior arrangement with the camp, catered traditional dances can be arranged. The camp is also home to a 9-hole golf course. Whatever your interest, Skukuza Camp caters for all.
