Hello everyone

I thought it would be a good idea to start an 'accommodation photo's' thread in the arid parks as well. It's been a huge success in the Kruger national park section and there are so many people who would like to see the photo's of forumites who visited the parks.

If you have any pictures of your bungalow or especially the view from your bungalow, please feel free to add your pictures here. Will you then please state:

* The park/camp
* The type of accommodation (for instance BD3)
* and then the bungalow/tent number



(If you wish to create collages, it will be appreciated. It brings the number of photo's per page to a minimum. It's not an obligation, just a suggestion. If you do not know how to make a collage, you are welcome to PM 'Lion queen'. She can help with it. Here is an example of her collages.)


You can find maps of the different camps here below.

With the permission of Arks, I will add her pictures here.

Urikaruus cabin #4 at the far end of the camp, away from the tourism assistant's quarters, and very private.

Grootkolk

ImageImage
tents 1 & 2 (left) and communal kitchen, tents 3 & 4 (right)

ImageImage
tourism assistant's tent (left) and view of camp from approach road (right)

ImageImage
tents 3 & 4 (left) and view from west of tent 4 looking east towards tent 1

ImageImage
tents 2 & 1 (left) and tent 1 with its wonderful trees (right)

The Grootkolk tents are quite a bit smaller than those at KielieKrankie or even the Urikaruus cabins, but they are perfectly comfortable, if a small bit cramped. There isn't much storage/closet space as the cabinet in the bedroom is used for the crockery. The stoep is walled with concrete "sandbags" and includes both the braai and the sink and gas rings, as well as a table and two chairs. The gas-powered fridge is inside in the bedroom area. I found the sound of the fridge disturbing and Gert showed me both how to turn it off and how to re-light the pilot. The long-handled "braai lighter" I'd bought was very useful for this!

Hi folks,

Does anyone have pics of the Desert tents in KTC or the views around them. We have one night there (after reading some of the trip reports and seeing some of the photos we had to get a night in there and were lucky there was one available).

Rgds,

R.
