Please can someone tell me if Mazhou Camp has individual braai facilities? Everywhere I look they talk about power points, taps and dustbins - no braais.

We are goin in a weeks time and nned to know if we must take our own braai.

Jane :)

Hi and warm welcome to the forums, Jane :D

The facilities might have been upgraded since JoelR posted here :

There are a number of movable braais on the campsite, which you can snatch.


I am sure you will soon get more info from forumites that have been there recently.
Wishing you a wonderful time there. :D

We were just there a couple of weeks ago and there were plenty of brais available. Our site had a permanete one but I think I saw some portable ones also. Its a nice place to camp, the animals can come right up to your campsite. We had elephant, waterbuck and bushbuck less than 20 meters from our tent while we were there. Do look out for the monkeys though as they were stealing anything not stored away.
If you are lucky, you might see the white impala like we did, it was one of our trip highlights along with the camopy walk.

Can anybody please tell me about Mazhou Camp's "kitchen facilities"
Is there boiling water and maybe a 2 plate stove available.

I am going in October for a few days.

Thanks

Amanda

Its a most beautiful camp sight with lots of shady trees and plently of birdies and buck. The ablutions are basic but plenty of hot water . Kitchen is enclosed with a door so no naughty monkeys or baboons worrying you. There is electricity
The road through the park is a no no as its extremely corrigated Take the road from pont drift. This is corrigated too but is not nearly so long.
Oh and do enjoy and remember your Yellow ribbon.

Looking at camping in July (4 adults with 2 vehicles + trailers). Is one campsite big enough to accomodate us?

An amazing camp. One of the most lovely in all SANParks imo. Not because of the glitz and glamour, but the setting and the fact that it is so basic.

Dave sg I think you might need two camp sites as I think only one vehicle per site and also it would be a bit of a sqeeze. If you could get them next to each other it would be super .
