We haven't camped at Maroela near Orpen before and I was wondering if anyone had advice about which were the best sites to ask for - if in fact you can reserve a site ahead, as you can at Tsendze further north. In an ideal world we like privacy and shade, and don't mind not being nearest to the ablutions. Any advice?

Best sites are along the perimeter fence and there are quite an few . but unfortunately you cant book as its a first come basis. . We have always managed to get what we want though

Thanks, Hugh. Typically, what time do you arrive? We plan to copy you in the hope of a choice!

Annie, have you had a read through the Maroela Topic where I am sure you will find lots of great info and advice as well.

Also EJ's Comprehensive Camp layout

Enjoy! :thumbs_up:

Thanks Elsa, will look at those now. I searched for Maroela but didn't find anything so these links are great.

annie R, I am sure you are going to love the camp. I found it pristine and well kept. There really are a number of perimeter sites, so I hope that you hit jackpot.

I have memories of sipping early morning coffee with a buffalo grazing peacefully a couple of metres away. I looked at him and he looked at me.. it was love at first sight.

sigh

Sounds lovely, MM. If it's anything like Tsendze, we will definitely love it.

When we were at maroela a few years back there was a lion kill about two metres from the fence and those lions were busy growling and roaring and carrying on for about three days .There were hyenas and jackal and all the usual scavenges around too. most exciting only thing is after those three days the smell was not so nice . I think they had killed a large Buff

Awesome, Hugh. Nothing better than the sound of lions outside the camp!
