Noticed a great improvement near the 3-5 pax huts at Lower Sabie
And other areas in camp
They are erecting nice thatched bomas
Great shelter from the weather.
But why does it take so very long :whistle:
During my march visit they were busy with them
Was very surprised that when being there in october saw that the boma is still not finished :wall:
When will this welcomed additioned be ready?

Good morning

What can we expect from this accomodation, this is a permeter bungalow, we have previously stayed at Addo and found the accomodation excellent.

Hi Lesleybi, welcome to the forum.

The BD2U bungalows have recently been refurbished and are very nice. You aren't quite on the fence but near enough that you will have wonderful views of the river.

Lesleybi - welcome

The BD2U's are wonderful accommodation - you will enjoy the view. Even at night you can open the curtains and from your bed, you will have a look on the river - especially when it is full moon :D you will be able to see hippos on the sand banks ...

So, a silly question here.
We have managed to get into Lower Sabie for our last 2 nights in Kruger in March. Unbelievable!
We have a BD2 with "kitchenette on the veranda".
And now the silly question: does this mean that we have utinsels, i.e. cutlery etc.?

watershed, the newly refurbished BD2’s kitchens are fully stocked with crockery and cutlery. Word of advice, take your own ‘braai’ set, tin opener, bottle opener (just in case the ones provided dont work all that well and because you will use those maybe elsewhere :mrgreen: ) and if you’re fuzzy about certain drinks out of certain glasses, pack some champagne glasses and ‘fish bowl’ red wine glasses or whatever you fancy. I prefer packing my own large coffee mugs, those provided in camp remains too small for this caffeine junky :tongue:

Thank you, RemiE. The tip about the tin opener is good. We usually take our own glasses with us and this time around I am going to pack proper mugs for coffee. Those cups are just too small !

We were at Lower Sabie a week ago watershed and the units and tents we were in had mugs, so you might be in for a surprise. I rather like the small cups - it's a Kruger thing :wink:

:thumbs_up: RosemaryH, it remains the cup to enjoy coffee out of first thing in the morning, but I always need to have three cuppa's to at least jump start. The rest of the day is coblet style muggs..........and I may not pack those small cups when I'm of to sit at a bird hide :lol:

Watershed - in addition to the things the other folks have suggested, we always pack steak (sharp) knives and sharp kitchen knives. If you are a meat-eater, there is nothing worse than trying to hack at your meat with the blunt knives provided!!

Hope you enjoy your trip - have a wonderful time.

For those who have booked accommodation without a kitchen, if required, there are utensil boxes for hire from reception at R20 per box per night but they are limited so first come first served! :thumbs_up:
