Skukuza Rest Camp (Kruger National Park, Skukuza 1350) — Skukuza camp is one of the more popular camps in the Park and can get a bit busy as it is also a pit-stop for day visitors and safari tour groups. It is the largest camp in the Kruger National Park and the administrative headquarters. The staff village for permanent staff and management is located next to Skukuza Rest Camp, with a school, sports fields, a golf course, shop and large swimming pool.

Skukuza Rest Camp also boasts an auditorium and conference center, two swimming pools, a garden nursery and car wash and hire facilities. It was named after the first Warden of the Kruger National Park, James Stevenson-Hamilton. It was the nickname given to him by the Tsonga tribe. It is also where you will find the Stevenson-Hamilton Memorial Museum.

The camp has great views and a wheelchair accessible promenade along the Sabie River bathed in the shade of tall bushveld trees. Enjoy sitting under the large, shady tree and enjoy a delicious ice-cream or dine at the upmarket steakhouse on site. The full range of accommodation is available to suit all budgets, from safari tents to luxury riverside bungalows, to caravan spots and guesthouses.
