And may I add, that you an Elina are perhaps two of the most dedicated and passionate Kruger people I have met. And you are running one of the best and most amazing camps in the whole Park.

You two set an amazing example. Thank you very much Rodger and Elina. :clap:

Thank you Rodger for a great stay in Tsenze. You and Elina are tops.
Thanks for showing us the Owls as well.
We stayed at Camp Site 26 and the 2 Elephants were close to the fence right at our campsite. They also came into the camp one night by trampling the fence near the gate, although we did not hear them.
This was our 1st stay in Tsenze, but we will be back!

A magical camp. Rodger and Elina do an amazing job of not only maintaining Tsendze but also in communicating with all the guests who stay there. Every evening they visited to confirm that all was satisfactory....a degree of dedication I have not seen elsewhere.

From my walk around, 3 looks the best, but saying that I must also add that there are no bad sites at Tsendze. I had 26, highly recommended by others and agree with them. It is on the fence, close to the ablutions and an open spacious site......wish I was back there now.

Hi Boslaaitie

Site 27 is large with good shade for a caravan. We camped there in May/June with our large caravan and had no hassles getting in and out. Site 28 is smaller but when we left it was "home" to a Jurgens Exclusive which fitted onto the stand. Some years ago, we also parked on that stand - it was also easy to get in and out. Both stands are on the fence and close to Ablutions; there are taps between 26 and 27 and between 29 and 30.

Sorry, can't help with the other sites.

Hi Boslaaitie,

Number 24 is in the corner towards Rodger's house and Mooiplaas picnic area. Its very shady and if I am not wrong it should not be a problem.

Our first few nights will be #27 (27-28 June) and then #3 from 30 June to 11 July 2015. We will see you there then in 8 months time. :wink: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Currently no campsite available for the 29 June and waiting for a cancellation unless some-one is prepared to house 3 squatters?
