The camps at Kruger are all great and this was one of the better ones. The facilities for campers are well designed and well maintained. The shop has just about everything you might need in terms of groceries, souvenirs, even binoculars, equipment for cooking, etc.Recommended for:

Skukuza is one of the biggest restcamps in the Kruger. It's the place to go if you want to send a postcard or parcel. There is a nice restaurant (look up into the thatched roofs over the outside eating areas to see bats roosting!) and also a large gift shop and garden shop. I've never stayed here as it's a bit too big for me, but it was full of families and has a lot going for it from that point of view.Recommended for:

The "main" camp for Kruger, located in the southern section of the park, Skukuza makes a wonderful option for where to base yourself in between game drives. It has some decent restaurants and even game viewing from inside the camp fence. Centrally located, it's also often possible to get a reservation here in a safari tent or campsite when others smaller camps are booked up.Recommended for:

I believe this is the largest of the government-run camps in Kruger. Although a boon as far as accommodation choice and facilities is concerned, this is otherwise not a good thing. When busy it feels more like a small city than a safari camp! If you must stay here (I wouldn't) then how nice your room is will vary according to what you have booked. Runs from the usual basic campsite (mixed in terms of layout; some good, some very crowded) all the way through the larger chalets on the riverfront. Everything is the simple zero-frills standard of the government run camps. Camp has decent views onto riverbed from restaurants and food there is better than average for Kruger (really not saying much) so not a bad spot to stop for lunch or top up on shopping.
