Hi Everyone :yaya:

I get this question a lot... Which unit is the best? So I thought it's easy to make an index list of the best located bungalows/tents/huts, especially for those people who want to request the best units and don't have time to read through all the different topics.

Now, this is just my opinion, and please feels free to give your opinion on which units you think is just as good or even better, and I will add them to the index list. :wink:

By requesting a unit, you can e-mail, fax or telephone the camps directly. Here you can find the addresses and numbers

What an awesome idea, roaneric! The only real disappoint we had on our last trip was not being in the know on the best units, and how to go about requesting them. This is great. :thumbs_up:

Hi guys,

This is why I love the forum because you get so much useful info.
In all the years going to Kruger I was not aware that one can request a specific unit number, but where do I do this. Do I contact central reservations or the specific camp?
