They say


Mem­bers of the Behrens fam­ily come from across the coun­try and ev­ery year choose a new camp­site in the Kruger where they un­hitch.

We al­ways head for the fence stands and nine times out of 10 we get one. We were here at Satara just after 8 am and there were three open. We see ele­phants and hye­nas pass­ing ev­ery day, and be­fore sun­rise leop­ards too. We’ve even spot­ted wild dogs.

Neels and Trudie Visser from Sa­sol­burg camp with their two kids,

CJ (5) and Muller (2), on one of the two spe­cial stands against the fence that are re­served for peo­ple with med­i­cal needs.

We booked for our De­cem­ber hol­i­day in the Kruger in the mid­dle of the year al­ready. We en­joy the space in Satara, and even though there aren’t a lot of shade trees we’re lucky to have one on our stand. We’ve seen plenty of an­i­mals next to the fence – from hye­nas to ele­phants and even a leguaan at sun­set. Trudie [in her wheelchair] uses the bath­rooms but the kerb on the paved road is quite an­gled and it’s dif­fi­cult for her to move over it. But other than that the bath­rooms are great and to­tally suf­fi­cient.
