Looked at a few comments for the cattleman restaurant but there seems to be little about the Selati.

I am in Skukuza for one night in January and will probably eat out with 3 other guests. Which restaurant would you pick and why?

Cheers

Any idea when the Selati restaurant will be in business again?

The Cattle Baron is very nice, with interesting menu and good service.

I don't think there is any more news on the Selati Restaurant. It has been closed for quite some time now, due to a legal dispute.

The reason for my inquiry is that we will be visiting SKUKUZA during December 2016 and I thought I could treat my grandchildren.

Quite frankly, the last meal I had at the Selati Restaurant left a lot to be desired - uninteresting menu, very disinterested staff. The first meal I had there - can't remember when that was - was fantastic but it seemed to go very downhill after that!

Take them to the Cattle Baron and sit on the deck - if it is not too hot. I think they do have those misting things to keep the temperature down a bit.

I have not had any further notification on when the Selati restaurant is to be re-opened but sure to pass it on as soon as I do. :thumbs_up:

I would rather braai with them and enjoy the fire and bush than eat at Skukuza's restaurant again...

We are in the Park for 5 nights so want to eat out once. Skukuza seems the place to do it because it has the infrastructure.

I will braai on the other 4 nights for sure because I have perimeter huts at Satara and Berg en Dal.

So the Cattle Baron it will be then. I have checked out the menus online and they seem to have a good range of food there. This should suit all 4 of us meat eaters!

An alternative for lunch option is to have something at the Skukuza golf course. Perfect after spending some time at Lake Panic.

Sometimes eating something at Skukuza is too busy for my liking. And the added benefit is we have lunch and while we wait, me and the little one have a putting contest. Somehow he always wins. :hmz:

Skukuza LB3 - opinion please

Unread post by Horrace » Thu Sep 22, 2016 9:15 pm

Hi mites,

Has anyone stays in the LB3 units recently. They don't appear on the map, and tripadvisor suggests that they are previous BE3SE units numbers 48-51. Have they been redone as L normally denotes a luxury unit?. If they are the old BE3SE units, could anyone please advise as to how close they are to the swimming pool and conference centre and weather the location detracted from their experience.

Our last trip to bungalow's in Skukuza were somewhat of a disaster and trying to get SWAMBO to go back, as I love the camps position.

Many Thanx
Horrace

Horrace, from This post it does indicate they are the BE3SE bungalows.
In the following post there are some pics.
And also This post should offer more info and advice.
