Hello wyld@hrt, we stayed at no. 25 in August and were...as usual, very happy! It is a large and private site with no-one having to walk through to get to their sites. We were visited in the evening by the resident Barred owlets which sat on a low branch right next to the braai...as you can see in pics I previously posted. It is not right up to the fence, however, there is no-one between you and the fence and you can see should anything walk past. I cannot comment on number 34...cannot remember, my list of favourites: 26; 3; 27; 28; 29 and 30. Will try to post some pics of 25.

Having said that...no matter where you are in Tsendze you cannot but be happy! :D

Hi there!

We're getting married in the Kruger in April this year :D .

I'll try and keep this short and sweet though - the plan is to have the ceremony at Tzende Camp in the afternoon (we've booked out the whole of Tzendze for the saturday), and then we all get carted off from there to the private Nzopforini braai/event/dinner spot, located to the south of Mopani for the night time celebrations.

So anyway, we'll obviously be doing our own recce around the campsite a couple days before hand, but I know theres folk on here with alot more experience of the camp site than us - if you had free range of the entire camp site, where would you setup for a wedding ceremony? Keep in mind that there will be 100 guests :shock:, so it will need to be an area with a fair size. My memory of the camp is a little faded at the moment, but Im sure I can picture one area of the camp that is quite big, with a huge tree in it? Or is my mind playing tricks on me?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Graham

Graham, a very warm welcome to you and what a wonderful place to have a wedding.

My warmest :congrats:

It is a lovely time of the year to take advantage of the shade offered. Wow, I do hope that we get to see some piccies.

I think we stayed at 25 when we visited. I think the site next door was the most popular site for larger families.

Unfortunately I left my camera at home for the trip but I do have a few not so good quality pictures.

This is my daughter braaiing facing the site I would recommend.

Walking in the evening in the area.

More lovely trees taken close to the site I would recommend.

I am sure someone will give you the correct number as it is extremely popular.

Thanks so much for all the advice already.

We know we'll be able to make the best decision on the spot to hold our wedding ceremony with your help.

I concur with Oubaas1, around sites 5/6 would be nice. Also around 14/15 it appeared quite shady when I walked around the camp last May; and would have enough space for 100 guests. Just a little further to walk to the bathrooms......
I guess the easiest would be to point out those sites that I personally remember (with all the dangers associated with that) as being unsuitable for your purpose:
1-4; 8-12, 16-20, 27-34.

I am a little fuzzy about the area around sites 21 - 24, but I do seem to remember some large tree(s) in that area. Lot of space around those 4 sites.

Hope it turns out to be great experience!
