Hi,

we could need some advise.
We would like to stay 2 nights in Urikaarus. I read now, that check-in is in Mata Mata and Twee Rivieren.
As we are coming from Polentswa we could only check-in in Nossob.
Do you know, if we can go to Urikaarus without check-in and check-in after the first night, because than we will drive to Mata Mata and back again to Urikaarus?
Sanparks didn't help - they told me I can only check-in in Twee Rivieren, because we will get the keys only there.
Can somebody help?

Bye,
Marion

Hi Marion,

No keys that you'll need to get in TR. The wilderness camp attendants have the keys to the units in their camps.

I'm sure you should be able to book in ( the normal get your permit and conservation fees procedures) at Nossob.

I'll try and get some clarification on this tomorrow.

Hi Marion,

Just something else........will you be entering Kgalagadi from the Botswana side?? And where will you be exiting?? If you are not entering and exiting via the same country, you'll need to do the customs at TR.

Hi lion queen,

we will enter the Park at Mabuasehube Gate and we are planning to exit at Kaa Gate.
So we don't have to do the customs.
But thanks for asking.

Bye,
Marion

Krausimausi, I've been two times in Urikaruus. You can go directly there without check in in Mata Mata, Nossob or Twee Rivieren. You just need the printed confirmation letter to show to Eric, the Urikaruus manager. Enjoy Urikaruus, from my point of view is the best camp of the park.
Bye. Luca/Italy.

Hi Luca,

thank you very much for this precise answer from Italy.
So we are looking forward to Urikaarus now.

Bye,
Krausimausi

Hi Krausimausi,

Sorry to be the bearer of not so good news.

You can't just go directly to Urikarus. You will have to book in at Nossob to obtain your permit and pay the conservation fees.

Enjoy the trip..... :thumbs_up:

Hi lion queen,

don't worry - check-in in Nossob is also good news, as Nossob is on our way.
We will stop there for petrol anyway.
(We always pay the conservation fee in advance with the camp reservation, if we don't buy a wild card!).

Bye,
Krausimausi
