Because of the fertile grazing land it attracts vast herds of antelope and other grazers, the large cats that prey on them are in abundance. Satara Camp stakes its reputation on being one of the best spots in the world for viewing Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. Satara Camp is often referred to as the 'cat camp' because of the large numbers of Lion and Cheetah in the area, and is for this reason that Satara is such a popular camp. Large cats are frequently spotted in the Muzadzeni area, where a large and successful Lion pride operates, or along the S100 route that runs east from Satara Camp, hugging the bank of the N'wanetsi stream. This stretch is especially productive in winter when the veld is dry, and Lion and Leopard lie waiting to ambush thirsty Antelope that swarm in large herds to drink at the few remaining pools of water.
Although there are no major rivers, there are watercourses lined with well-developed trees. There are 3 dams and 6 waterholes in the area, offering you plenty of opportunity to spot the Big Five. Night drives allow you in on the nocturnal activities of Kruger's secretive creatures while in the company of experienced guides and trackers. Guided bush walks with trained field guides who take groups of up to 8 people out into the bush for a few hours are not to be missed. Learn and observe fascinating facts about the African bush. There are also regular game drives.
