No? Do you mean because he has not posted here for a while?

Sorry, did not mean to give you a fright, yes, Rodger did not post for a while. I am just a bit concerned. We are going in 4 days time to Tsendse and would love to see Rodger again.

Boslaaitie, have you seen the map? link

I do not know 13, but it looks like a good, private site. It is hard to tell from the map how far it is from the fence. And I am not too sure how far along that side of the camp the picnic area is, but it is not right up next to the fence. I have never heard anyone complain about any of the sites at Tsendze :D

Boslaaite,


It is not next to the fence and surounded by other sites, although quite private. No one will walk pass you but the neighbours next to you are not far off.

You will find it has lots of shade. I will check again on the numbers next to you, but I think it is 8 and 9.

Totally understand Kruger fever :) And best to book a site as early as you can.

We have stayed on 25, it is not too big, and not that shady if I recall, but was nice and we had a view of the fence, but it is not right on the fence. Looking at the map, 22 and 24 look good too.

No. 3 is first prize in my book, but you say it is booked.

I will look tho my Tsendze pics and see what I can see to show you.

Afternoon Boslaaitjie

We have camped on stand no 5 and stand no 6 previously and they are next to the fence. Had an elefant charging my then to be son in law when he was standing outside the tent and the elefant was gracing on the outside side of the fence. He got quite a scare ........

Stands 5 and 6 could be a bit crouwded if when the camping parties consist of to many people, but it also depend on how you set up camp.

What i can remember from April's visit is that stand 13 is quite away from the fence with trees and grass in between.

But that should not be a detergent, being in Kruger and camping in Tsendze is all what count.

Hi Bospelle!

We stayed 10 days at #26 last year during March, but it was way to busy for us with the bathrooms right there, loop road and neighbours in clear view, big space and the huge tree was nice, but don't think I would choose that one again or for that matter any of the sites on that side of the camp again. We had neighbours both sides the whole time, hearing every cell phone conversation because it's so quite, while the rest of the camp was empty... BTW, MTN had great reception while Vodacom not, so we had no incoming calls, but our MTN neighbours had :wall: :wall: :wall:

Scouting the camp, I liked #13. It has a bit of bush between you and and fence, but their is a short path leading to the fence 20 or 30 meters away. I liked the site because it was far from the bathrooms, not a loop road and only neighbours to one side and lots of shade. We took our chairs and had our sundowners here at the fence and spotted lots of game every afternoon, maybe because it was so quite on this side of the camp. Here at #13 other side the fence is a huge tree were a Verroux's Eagle Owl spend a lot of time and even made a kill. So I'm very tempted to take 13 next time... if 3 is not available...
