I would also like some advice here please?

I finally managed to book 2 nights :dance: at Lower Sabie in the Safari tents (LST2). Now I know that its not riverview tents, but I would like to know how are these? And which one is the best to stay in that is the closest to the river?

I have never stayed in one at LS so please advise?

I am interested in knowing which unit nrs in Lower Sabie are BD3U and whether there is any particular BD3U unit which is preferable (in terms of location, privacy, noise levels) over another. Thanks!

As far as I remember Elmar they are all the ones # 1 to 22.
We had # 21 earlier this year and it was far away enough from the restaurant area to not be a problem and also had a nice view of the river. :D

Hi All,

I'm trying to find the BD2U on the map? We are staying 2 weeks tonight :dance: and wondered if there is some with better views than others and also away from any renovations.
Thanks :D


Hi Maddie,

we were there 2 weeks back and we had number 75. It's a good place and not close to renovations. The renovations are close to Kaertland guesthouse. On the map you hace to look to BG2U..... :doh:
unfortunatelly you can see the diference between BD2U and the BD3U...
I don't know why sanparks doesn't change the maps... sometimes it's very confusing..
Have a nice trip!!

Ruud

Hi Zeelie

I have been camping in LS quite often. You can not book a specific site. Most of the camp sites are relatively small, but there are some bigger ones as well. A large caravan with tent will easily fit on almost all sites. Please note that no extra tents will fit on site. Each site as a braai, tap and dustbin. Hope this helpa a bit. :lol:

Also check the description of the campsite at Lower Sabie by Ecojunkie - it sums it up well:
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=28185&start=15

Additionally to what has been said here so far two further points:
- No camping at the fence which means it lacks the possibility of watching animals from your tent at night.
- No animal night sounds: Although I heard a barn owl at night from my tent when I camped at LS once. But generally you are too far away from the fence and from the river to hear animal sounds at night (there is quite a bit of human noise pollution including a generator at night at LS campsite).

The camp sites on the left (if you are looking from the river side of the camp) are fairly big, the rest being a mix of small and medium.
I do not agree on not hearing any night sounds. We spent a week camping there two weeks ago and were kept awake sometimes by loud lion roars. We also heard hyena, owls, hippo, fruit bats and even a leopard at night.
I thoroughly enjoyed my camping experience at LS, but each to their own I guess. Enjoy your trip.

Hi AKadwa

If you know where the pool is, the EH5 units are across the road from the pool, the 'round end' units of the long dorm style buildings if that makes sense (on the camp map they will be units 49, 54, 55 and 60 with the EH3's in between them). The kitchen and ablutions are in close vacinity, the shop is unfortunately for you, on the other end of the camp.

Enjoy :mrgreen:

We stayed in one a couple of years ago, thought we'd died and gone to heaven, they are fantastic. I think there is a post further up the thread with the numbers but they start at 3. However the higher number the better as 3 - 5 are right next to the path to the restaurant/reception area

Has anyone stayed in the BD3U units? I assume it is the upgraded ones with a kitchenette. Looked lovely from the outside ( we stayed in the safari tents on our last visit)

Any ideas on which one would be nicer ;) Or just the numbers on the map to make a request?

Thanx in advance.


The BD3U as well as the BD2U are realy very nice bungalows to stay in. They all have a riverview. :cam:
And 3 is indeed right next to the restaurant so it can be a little noisy. :hmz:


Ruud.
