Hi there,
we stayed last week in 221 code GV4C. It was 2 bedrooms (4 single beds)with own bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen/sitting area and a loveley outside siiting area with river view. For 3 this would be great. Enjoy!

We have stayed at Elsie Clarke Guest House twice.The furnishings are rudimentary but adequate.(you are not there to view the furniture).It is ideal for 2 couples.Great unobstructed view of the Sabie River and the old railway bridge. Close walking distance to Selati restaurant if you don/t wish to self cater .

Elsie Clarke is however ideally suited to an evening braai( barbecue).There is a lovely verandha and the braai is right in front of it. The Camp Shop is adequatly stocked with meat, snacks , drinks and curios.

I would recomend you staying at EC but book early it is difficult to get in.

We will be staying in one of the GC4V cottages in Kruger. Does anyone know one cottage is better than the other in relation to view, bbq etc?
Thank you


I agree with maddie2312, there are 5 of them and the one is as good as the other. Its opposite the pool and very close to Selati restaurant. The view of all is onto the river and all have a bbq in front of each cottage. They have quite big fridge/freezers, a nice stove with oven, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (showers only), a little sitting room and a nice verandah. :D

Could someone please advise which type of unit at Skukuza has the best view, if you had a choice between #209 (GC6) or the LR2E units (I think they are #206-208) or LR2W units (looks like #85-96 on the map I think)? The main thing to us is the view, not the furnishings or spaciousness etc.

The GC4V and GC4VB are not available.

Thanks in advance!

Hi lisa,

we stayed on the Easern side in 208 and twice on the Western side in 95 and the "Lion". The view from all three units were just breathtaking but I would slightly prefer those on the Western side 95, 96 and lions.

Enjoy you stay :thumbs_up:

When I used the tents a couple of years ago, the boundary tents were taken up by tour groups. I did look at them and felt rather :mrgreen:

This is one of my last minute trips so I was probably allocated the "hind titty". It does give an indication of a "little bit" of what to expect.

I would not hesitate to book there again, even if I have to settle for the "hind titty". :wink:

The fridge was on the inside and I found it very comfortable.

I always claim that Skukuza gets a bad wrap. I think that their tented accomodation is wonderful. It was fairly close to the ablutions and the kitchen area. The tents are all fairly close together, so you should experience the same.

Hi

Someone told me my photos have been framed in the Skukuza reeception.
It's photos of a lion on a buffalo and a leopard on a rock.
Has anyone seen these photos.
If so , where in the reception area?
How do they look?
Dying to see it :)

2 years ago we took pictures of the interior only to discover that there was no card in the camera :redface: :redface: but you can have a look via the availability button and then have a look at Skukuza the Lion Cottage looks similar to the Luxury riverside bungalows, however it is a little bit larger.

This is nearly the view :thumbs_up:

Hi there all,

We are planning a camping trip to Skukuza and I would like to know how long my power cable should be to have power at my site! I was thinking 30m, is that long enough? :hmz:

Hi Theuns

There are power points on that side and 30m should be ample, (i've been getting away with using a 20m cable).

Take note: Skukuza's ground is extremely hard so take along some lekker long nails and washers, they go in easy where a peg would normaly bend.

I haven't stayed there, but I know there is a Waterkant 1 and 2. They are right next to each other. The view from both are excellent.
