Bert, I saw a nice communal boma (completed) and pics of it somewhere, in the area of the EH huts around number 36 - the ones near the camping area. Cannot remember about the paving :redface:

Hi - everyone, I'm seeking clarification regarding the BD2U and BD3U bungalows at LS. Are they both equiped with cooking utensils / cutlery ? Also, other than 2 vs 3 beds what are the main differences between the 2 types of unit.

Were planning to come to Kruger in November and would dearly love to stay a few nights at LS, as weve not stayed there before.

Hope someone can help with my questions :lol:

Thanks, Higgsie

Good day Higgsie

The BD2U's and BD3U's at Lower Sabie are fully equipped, i.e. cutlery, cooking utensils. The difference between the two is mainly the kitchen area. In the BD2U the kitchen is outside, but in the BD3U the kitchen and the third bed is a seperate room with a patio in front.

Both are very beautiful accommodation with lovely views on the river.

Thanks a lot Leana and Elsa for the info. Ive just booked 3 nights in a BD3U bungalow at LS. Next job is to book our other nights at Satara and Letaba.

So the holiday planning is now well and truly underway. Fantastic :clap: :clap:

No doubt I'll be popping up on the forum from time to time with more questions and seeking advice.

:) Higgsie - you are going to enjoy the BD3U - very special accommodation, one of my favourites. Happy :think: this is an important part of the holiday.

Good luck for Satara and Letaba.

Hi Jarodd, if you have a look at the Map you can see the BD2's listed from about 73 upwards. Just below the BG2's

If you had a choice between a Eh3 hut or 2 x eh 2 hut at lower sabie what would you choose. We are 2 adults and 2 children. It just looks like the Eh3 does not have that much privacy. :wall:

I would say go with the EH2's as if you are 4 you would not be able to take 1 EH3 in any case? :?

Here is the swimming pool. Not the best picture, I'm afraid.

Good day!

Can anybody help me with the new BD2 units. I was fortunate to book one for 5 nights next June, but want to make a special request for a unit that has a river view. I phoned LS but they told me that the units are not (officially) river views. But on Accommodation Photos I can see that unit 71 has a view, but I must give two/three units when making a special request. How about 72? On the map the numbers are really confusing :hmz:
