Dear fellow Tsendze mites

I was told by an aquintence who visited Tsendze resently that Tsende camp is falling apart. Apparently all the shower drain pipes are block and shower heads is broken off just to mention a few complaints.

I find it hard to believe as we all know that Rodger is doing an exellent job in Tsendze and hey, Tsendze is a rustic bushcamp some where in the African bush not a 5 star camp site near Gauteng.

I would like to hear from fellow Tsendze campers who visited Tsendze presently what their opinion is if the state of Tsendze currently.

bosboytjie, we are there in about 12 days and I will report when we get back. I too would be very surprised as both Rodgers and Elina do an amazing job of running this corner of heaven.

Thanks Leervis

Much appreciated. i am of the opinion that certain people should not go camping at Tsendze, not every body can appreciate Tsendze.

Hope you enjoy your time at Tsendze and in KNP.

Hi Bosboytjie,

We were there in July and everything was in good condition and clean. We saw some baby squirrels near the drain pipes and behind gas cylinder so maybe one got caught in the pipe.

During our stay it was cloudy on a few days, so lights not always working specially when the camp is full, but that was a minor problem. Did find that people come there for a social gathering in a group of a few families / friends resulting in late night noise, but also not too late. We are early sleepers and maybe more irritated when people still talk at the top of their voice until after 11 pm.

The camp was however spotless and we had more quiet nights than noisy ones in the two weeks we stayed there.
