Skukuza Rest Camp Kruger National Park 



Skukuza is the main camp in the Kruger National Park. The name, adapted from Sikhukhuza, was a nickname for James Stevenson-Hamilton. It is the largest camp in the Kruger Park and is situated on the southern bank of the Sabie River.


It has a number of historical sites including 3 museums and a library, besides a camp centre consisting of shops and restaurants. From the main reception a visitor can arrange game drives, bush braais and guided walks in Kruger. Besides the camp basics, Skukuza also has 2 swimming pools, a golf course, a police station, a post office and even a bank. These shops and facilities are surrounded by different sized huts and guest houses.


Skukuza is located in the southern area of Kruger and is the most popular and accessible camp, and one of the best for game viewing. In the vicinity of the camp all of the African Big Five can be found as well as other recognisable and exciting animals. The nearby Lake Panic hide offers a vantage point of a water body from dense woodland. The camp itself overlooks the Sabie River where elephants sometimes congregate.


The stretch right opposite Skukuza is home to a number of hippos. Accommodation at Skukuza can vary from small but comfortable to large guesthouses for tour groups. Each house has an outside braai and mosquito protection.
