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.

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.
