Hello everyone

I thought it would be a good idea to start an 'accommodation photo's' thread in the Garden Route 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.

Storms River Mouth Honeymoon Cottage 8A

Hello everyone,

I'm a long time lurker on this site and have gained an incredible amount of useful information from the members, for which I am truly grateful. Thank you all so much for taking the time and effort to share your knowledge.

I've always been reluctant to post as you all seem so much better informed than myself. I've realised that I can give something back by posting images of the accommodation we've stayed in at the various camps. So here goes with my first attempt.

These are pictures of the honeymoon cottage 8A at Storms River taken in August 2010.

Best Wishes,

Andy

CH2/4 (Chalet)
SANParks does not have pictures of this type of unit on their website. When you try to look up the unit, it just has a description with no pictures.

It is semi detach, and we walked through the whole camp, and could only find the one semi detach structure, which means that there are only 2 CH2/4 units in the camp.

Camping Decks at Diepwalle (Knysna Forest)

Here are our pics from the camping decks at Diepwalle. The location is amazing, but we weren't impressed with how the area is looked after. I'm hoping the service has improved since we were there in July 2011.

We were in a 3 man dome tent. It could probably handle slightly bigger, but not by much. We highly recommend taking cable ties to attache the guy ropes to the deck. And make sure that you have locking boxes for your food, and don't keep it in the tent. The baboons got into 1 of our boxes, and tore through another camper's tent to get to their food.

Here is the full view from the stairs:

Image

Here is the view looking back up the stairs from the deck. The ablutions are at the very top, next to where you park your car:

Image

Here you can see the space you have. The space behind the bar has shelves, so you can wedge cooler boxes and other boxes quite well:

Image

Here are a series of photos of how we attached are tent to the deck:
