Our Feb/Mar booking started on the basis of the dates when seniors discount is available. Our booking is worked out around the 2 nights at Bitterpan that were available with discount, but ended up including Urikaruus (no discount) when 2 days became available (giving up one night at KK in the process).
Now we are wondering --- will 2 nights at Bitterpan be OK??

Hi Ruthp
We spent two nights at Bitterpan in Feb of this year. For us, two nights was enough, but it all depends on what it is you want to get out of it, in my opinion. We saw very little game, no cats at all. Having said that, a leopard was through camp the night before we arrived, and we met people after we had left Bitterpan and met them subsequently a couple days later, that were not allowed to their vehicles for a couple hours on the morning they were leaving because there was a lion making himself at home. One of the couples that were there while we were, hung out all day in camp. We went out on a game drive for our full day. The sleeping quarters (1 & 2, and 3 & 4) are very close to one another, making it maybe not quite so isolated as some of the other camps. You have shared kitchen facilities and while we were there, there was 3 fridges for the 4 units, so just a little bit of sharing there. If you hang around camp, it is arguably the most peaceful spot around, great for relaxation and seeing what comes your way. Fun to get to as well!
We are very happy we went, but we are not choosing this camp on our return visit next year - adding Gharaghab and KK because we were able to
. Wherever you go at KTP, a very special and memorable experience awaits!
