I am thinking of booking Boulders Bush Camp for a few nights next year and will be taking my son's family from Australia. one thing he remembers from when he lived here was spending evenings in the bush around a wood fire. as the entire Boulders camp is elevated can anyone tell me if there is a facility for a 'lapa' style fire? i see that all is said on the SAN Parks web site is that gas facilities are provided for a braai.


Dear Andrew

Please note that Boulders Bush Camp has a braai area (fenced) similar to the one at Shipandane Hide or Bomma area at Skukuza restaurant. Even though gas facilities are available you can still make fire using wood or charcoal.

Boulders has quite a nice braai area.

It is built in to the rocks.

It is not quite the rustic style, but will still be a nice experience.

I borrowed this photo from the thread previously indicated.

Is it possible to arrange for a guided walk whilst staying at Boulders camp? If so how do I go about it.
Thanks

I think you can - because I recall guides who took us on a walk from Mopani saying they did walks from Boudlers too. But lets get official word for you Mike :thumbs_up:

Dear Mike

Please note that it is possible to book for a guided walk while staying at Boulders. If there is a group of people staying at Boulders, a special arrangement can be made. If there are only individuals, we normally combine them with guests staying at Mopani Camp. Please note that all the bookings are done at Mopani Camp.

Has anyone been to Boulders lately? Are there any good drives from camp -I know it is mainly Mopani bushveld which is generally unproductive but perhaps someone has some ideas for me. Otherwise we can always relax in camp and hope for some interesting passers by :cam:

Hi pamelajane ...

We stayed at Boulders last June. While we loved the camp (the private water hole with daily visits from the Ellies were most memorable ... followed closely by the nightly visits from the resident spotted genet while tending the braai), to be honest, the drives into and out of camp were typically pretty quiet. For us at least, nothing more than general game (giraffe, zebra, etc.). I do recall seeing my only purple roller of the trip along these dirt roads, but that is the only lasting memory.

Nevertheless, the camp itself is worth the quieter rides in. Have a great visit.

Just to let you know we loved our visit to Boulders in May this year and were very impressed with the upgrade of the furnishings. As SJK said the drives were not good game wise but we had a herd of buff at the waterhole to greet us and the views and sunsets were beautiful. I will post some photos on the accommodation thread :cam:

Hi all,

I'd appreciate your input:

We've booked the Boulders camp for the weekend of 22/23 August, and managed to convince 10 friends and family members to join SO and myself :D

Some friends and family have not been 'converted' to Kruger yet and are only going to visit Boulders for the weekend. I have emailed these people a copy of my reservation for gate access. They understand that they'll have to pay conservation fees at the gate.

I plan on visiting Mopani to formally check-in at 14h00 on the 22nd. The remainder of the guests will go directly to Boulders.

Question is will this be in order? Anything else that I could/should do?

Thanking you in advance
Rudolph

Rudolph, one usually pays the conservation fee/swipes wildcard at the camp you are staying in when checking in or in this case nearest camp.
It might be easier if you can pay for everyone's conservation fees due and collect from them afterwards.
Maybe someone else who has done this before would be able to confirm or offer a better suggestion! :wink:
