Please remember that Satara is a very busy camp and is almost always fully booked out. It must be close to impossible to accommodate every request that they get so someone is always going to be disappointed. Remember that requests are not guaranteed.

I just phoned Satara Reception again regarding my enquiry whether my parents are allocated a bungalow next to my SO and I, and was prepared to ask for the Duty Manager.... but I received fantastic service from Tebalelo who checked and confirmed that we have been allocated bungalows next to each other. :thumbs_up:

Thank you Tebalelo

I love Satara, it is one of my favourite camps. I think that at the end of the day it all depends on the luck of who you get on the end of the phone or the email.
Just back.......now a whole year to wait till August 2011! I cant bear it.

Hi all

We booked 2 nights at Letaba BD3 and on the website they say its a perimeter, but does these bungalow's have a view? Who stayed in one of these bungalows before and can show me a picture of the view?

We really want a bungalow where you can sit in front and watch the river (or part of it)

And we also booked a FA6 family bungalow at Berg en Dal. Any suggestions on a nice location?

I haven't stayed at the BD3 units before in Letaba, but it looks like on this map of the camp that it is on the left of the reception, on the perimeter and not on the river itself. Look top left of the map.

Not sure about the Berg en Dal locations.

Hi Peeps

Going to KNP in August and can't keep myself from drooling at the thought. Mauxie asked this already but didn't get a reply so thought I'd give it a shot: We're booked in the Safari Tents in Lower Sabie and were lucky enough to get a LST2UZ tent. I was wondering which one of 21,22,23 is considered the best. In the end I'm sure any of the 3 will be great but I need to keep myself occupied with planning so that the time can pass quicker!

Ravvie, if you look at This Map
I would say off the top of my head that # 21 looks the closest to the river but never having been fortunate enough to stay in one of them yet, it would be a guess.

Ravvie, I've stayed in no. 21 and its got a great view, situated very close to the fence. You won't be disappointed. Its so awesome to sit on the deck and look over at the river, and listen to the hippos at night and watch the baboons congregate in the huge tree nearby.
I'm staying there in Jan. but also leaving for the park this Friday for 5 nights, but not staying in LS this trip.
Would love to hear how you enjoyed LS on your return.

Hi everybody :dance:
Booked 3 nights at Orpen next year. Can anyone recommend a chalet (BD2) that has a good view over the little webcam dam?

Leana, if you have a look at This Map the water hole is in front of the swimming pool, so basically I guess any of the low number chalets would have some view but its not really a great view as I recall.

Thank you Elsa :D
Although I know Orpen very well, we usually stayed at Tamboti. Did you stay at Orpen before and in what number? If one ask for 7 or 8 or 9, do you have an open view to the bush?
