For us it is either Letaba or Tamboti,(Olifants for the view)
but I have a feeling that this might change
as we are venturing all the way north come the
end of the year.

I think to put it into perspective only camps that offers all kinds of accomodation will be taken into concideration for my vote. If not a host of camps like Tamboti, Sirheni, Biyamiti, etc come into contention each for its own charm.

As far as conventional camps go Satara, Shingwedzi, Berg-en-Dal and Croc Bridge is top of my list. The sightings arouns these count for much too.

Biyamiti is at the top of my list, but I also like Mopani, Letaba, Olifants, Satara, Lower Sabie, Tamboti, actually all of them! We could never get a booking at Shingwedzi, but intend to try again to book at Shingwedzi, Sirheni and Bateleur for February 2013, when we return from our February 2012 trip. :)

Our nicest Camp is 100% proudly Kruger. It is Shingwedzi.

All the other Kruger Camps are nice too even the other one starting with a S followed by a K.

For me it's Olifants closely followed by Shingwetzi, also like Satara for the plentiful game viewing it has around it

The nicest camp :hmz: Really a tough decision!

But my No. 1 is Tamboti, followed by Mopani and Olifants. 8)

Sorry, you are all wrong. You don't get the prize. Try again next time. :lol:

The best camp is Punda Maria, since it has its own in-house waterhole issued with its own hide.



This is what happened some time ago. Keep an eye on the tiny little one. Very much the same happened last night.

Hope to see you all soon in Punda! :)

No doubt:Letaba.
Once we were on the deck near the restaurant and there was also a grandpa sitting in one of the seats.
He said to his daughter :" .... this must be like heaven.Never in my life I was so close to God" .
Wonderfullllllllll !!!

I always have difficulty in decided between Shingwedzi and Punda Maria but I think Punda edges it. Just.


I'm the other way round Sara.
Shing just beats Punda, though it is a very close second. :dance:

.....................has to be Berg en Dal, not the deepest swimming pool but the cleanest, the best accommodation that we have ever stayed, our best camping experience ever..................

Shingwedzi, Tsendze and Punda are our favourites - which is best? Dunno - they're all great.

Honestly you can't really go wrong. Each and every one of us have different favorites for different reasons....

Punda Maria Tents - so peaceful and you will see more stars that you ever knew existed.

Lower Sabie Tents - the sound of so many creatures parading through the water is enticing each and every trip.

Mopani - Well, if you stay in a guest house overlooking the dam you will be entertained for hours without leaving your place.

You really can't go wrong. My only suggestion is that you book perimeter view whenever possible then you can watch the wilds while cooking, chilling and without ever leaving your "home".

Enjoy,
Dana
