Hi Lizez

I have pictures of all 3 LST2UZ tents. Have a look Here

Look at the pictures and decide for yourself if this is what you were looking for. I love nr. 22 view.

Sorry, never been to Talamati, so maybe someone else can help you there.

Hi Graham - My wife and I stayed in a BD4V at Mopani in April and believe me it is worth it. There are very few units with a view of the dam so if you can get one go for it. We stayed in number 51 - one of the best views in the camp.
Enjoy!


Managed to change an FB4 to a BD4V for 2 nights over the public holiday weekend which I am pretty chuffed about. I notice there is a BD4 free for those 2 nights and now my old FB4, so there are still a few units available that busy weekend.. Thanks so much for the tip.

Firstly, my apologies if this is the wrong thread that I am using to post my question / statement.

I would just like to know if it is possible to arrange that the fridge in a hut (EH) at Lower Sabie can be switched on early in the day of your arrival please? :hmz: I have been there twice and each time the fridge was switched off (I understand saving power is important) and it then takes some time to freeze and cool down one's food and drinks. This is not a complaint, but simply a question!!

We were at Talamati last year with two teenage boys. The bench beds were fine for them.

Hope you enjoy your time there if you decide to go - it is a wonderful camp! :D

Thanks, AndrewPip!

For the Easter weekend next year when we want to go to Talamati, there was only GC6 units left, so I bit the bullet and booked one of those. Can't wait to see this camp everyone speaks so highly of!

Hi all,

Technically not the right place for this question but not sure where else it would go. We are planning a trip to Tamboti in July and haven't been on that road for ages, does anyone know its condition? Bearing in mind that we drive a very old Golf, so bad dirt roads are out at the moment for us.

Thanks!

Hi guys,

Maybe someone can advise me on the following:

Have the safari tents with perimeter view in Lower Sabie recently been revamped ? If only some, which tent numbers and how to book them? Plan to go in April: not too hot in the tents at that time of year?

In Pretoriuskop we would like to book a bungalow @ the perimeter. However, the online booking system does not specify which type of bungalows are at the perimeter (we would need an equiped bungalow for 2 people - with utensils). Does someone know if bungalows BD2M have a perimeter view? And if not which ones do?

Thanks a lot for your reply

Hi Frizzle,
As far as know the BD2M is not at the perimeter, when you enter the camp it is the first 'circle' at the right hand sight.Just like Satara.
I must say that the BD2M bungalow are very very nice!! I am not sure which bungalows are at the fence... at the left sight (after entering the camp you find the greater type of bungalows at the fence but at the other side of the camp I just don't know.

We walked past the tents at LS in March, they're magnificent. Would definitely stay there if had the chance. We couldn't look inside them, but they all looked in good condition

Have stayed in them fairly regularly and sadly, they have been getting more dilapidated year by year.
However, the location on or near the river is special.
Many seem to get full sun, which is too much in the middle of the day, and sends us out for an air-conditioned drive!

Hello Frizzle.

I am aware that a perimeter tent was destroyed in a fire some time ago and replaced - not sure of the tent number though. I do not believe that the safari tents bordering the perimeter have been refurbished lately. April can still be hot in the bushveld, however, the ceiling fan should be adequate for cooling (depending on your heat tolerance :)


I believe the tent that was destroyed and replaced is #26. I have read the new tent has a different layout with the bathroom at the back, indoor kitchen and the braai is no longer on the deck. Also it may be slightly larger. We are staying in 2 different tents during our visit in August and we have been allocated 26 on one of visits, so will know more then.

We were in no 26 during our last visit in january. The indoor kitchen in practical and it's a bit bigger. Also the deck is fine and the view excellent. The braai is "downstairs" and it makes you go down and up, but thats no problem to us. Although it was hot the fan did a proper job, even during the nights without a cooling down thunder storm. Very good value!

We stayed in tent no.18 over the December January holiday, it was absolutely wonderfull, but I must agree the tents can do with a bit of maintenance or even a good facelift.

Still having a braai while overlooking the sabie river and seeing crocs on the bank, a wandering ellie or the call of the fish eagle unbeatable. :dance:
