Tankwa Karoo

We stayed at Paulshof cottage, a few kilometres from Reception. Blissfully quiet. No electricity - only paraffin lamps. Gas for fridge. Donkey for hot water. For more details see my Travel Tale 'Tinkering in the Tankwa'.

Agulhas

There are 3 cottages at Rhenosterkop. I think we stayed in No.2, a two sleeper. Very cosy. More comments in my Travel Tale 'Scratching the Bottom of Africa'.

Boulders Bush Camp (September 2011)

Unread postby Schoemanskloof » Mon Apr 23, 2012 3:08 pm

On a 3+week trip to Kruger in August/September of 2011, we were lucky enough to stay for a few nights in our first "bush camp," Boulders. We have been enjoying private camps (Biyamiti, etc) for the last decade, and this will not be the last time we stay here. Secluded, open and a beautiful space.

We enjoyed both the lazy days of sitting 15ft (4m?) off the ground and watching hers of animals meander around the waterhole (which is kept fill through a bore/pump when needed), the bird-life that started before dawn and ended just after dusk, and the nights sitting in braai area (constructed into granite boulders) listening to the dark night.

There was a pair of klipspringers living in the hill right next to the huts. No predators were seen or heard (in fact, on our trip overall, the nights were extremely quiet - no hyaenas, lion, or other expected sounds) around the camp. A few herds of elephants would pass through in waves, and a few very large herds of buffalo also were daily visitors.

There is electric power now (generator, which can be heard if you listen carefully) but we hardly used it, except for the fridge and to recharge some cameras, etc.

There are only two roads leading to the camp, and they were in pretty rough shape when we used them.
Each cabin has 2beds and an en-suite bathroom and a patio. One cabin has 4beds, too.

The on-site staff were excellent and very helpful.

The other bedroom, double bed and en suite bathroom

Another view, note the pics on the wall!! :wink:

Not a bad cottage but it did look rather tired in places and definitely needed some TLC which we did report in a feedback form and directly to the reception at the time.

Ladybug, you can either phone or send a fax to the camp about 2 weeks before your visit requesting that one.

Hi Everyone

Back from a lovely holiday in South africa and Kruger. I made lots of pics in Pretoriuskop, Satara, Maroela and Orpen. Unfortunately we didn't have any time for the other camps this trip. I will start posting pics of Pretoriuskop, and then move on to the other camps. Enjoy
