Skukuza Rest Camp



The popular Skukuza Rest Camp (originally called the Sabie Bridge Rest Camp) is the largest rest camp in the Kruger National Park, and serves as its operational and administrative headquarters. Situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River adjacent to the old river bridge the camp is blessed with an abundance of bird life including the finfoot, little sparrow hawk, half-coloured kingfishers, lesser masked and village weavers, green pigeons and bat-hawks – a paradise for avid bird watchers. You may also encounter elephant, giraffe, rhino, hippo, impala, kudu, duiker, hyena, wild dog, leopard, warthog and much more in the area on one of the game drives.
