I can tell you my story if you like but you can't laugh.
I booked for 2 nights here back in Jan 2007. The camp was just open and no spaces at Addo but thought by the time we got there the link road would be open and the park fenced etc.
We were 3 english girls of whom only be had been to a game park before for 5 days. The other 2 had never been to SA. We had spent some time in PE then whnt to Add for the day, left at gate closing and headed for the camp.
We got lost and so we arrived very late. No-one had stayed in our chalet before apparently. We drove up to chalet and it was very dark and quite overgrown still. We had to go through loads of cobwebs to get in. Loads of flatties on the wall, no problem. Stood outside and saw a big spider I didn't recognise so tried to call my SA husband in the UK, no signal. Went back in, 2 big different spiders and decided to go back to the gate to check none were poisonous. The gaurd said we must not stay there and gave us the key to another lodge. He came with us to that one.
We got inside and all looks OK then we went in the bathroom and there above the toilet was the biggest spider (a baboon spider i now know) i had every seen.
Well that was it, the others girls freaked and refused to stay there. We ended up driving at 11pm at night round roads we didn't know, past locals shouting at us etc all the way back up to Addo.
Knowing SA as I do now I cannot believe we were more scared of a spider than getting lost in the middle of nowhere late at night.
I am over my fear of spiders now I hope, am staying at Shipandani hide in a few weeks time for night. That'll be fun !
Oh and by the way, looking back on I think the camp will be a fantastic place to stay now. I will go back one day
