:cry: :cry: :cry: I thought I could have a break from washing dishes, will wash dishes when staying in safari tents in Letaba and Tamboti, I suppose washing dishes in the Kruger is better than washing dishes at home :hmz: :hmz:

We've booked our trip to Kruger! We're staying in Pretoriuskop (hut), Skukuza (bungalow), Talamati (guest cottage) and Satara (guest cottage).

Do we need to bring sheets and towels? What about swimming towels?

As Matthys says, there will be towels for the bathroom, but not for swimming. Those you will have to bring with you.

A warm welcome rubbins :gflower:

The only thing you might have to worry about is your cutlery and crockery in Pretorius Kop. The restaurant is now fully operational, so you could make use of that.

Lovely itinerary. I wish you a wonderful stay. :thumbs_up:

A few questions:

Satara BD2N - where is this (circle) and also which numbers - is this near the fence? Renovated? Which numbers is the best

Lower Sabie BG2 - is there a kitchen and utensils? Apparently there were some renovations done? Which numbers is the best

There is no kitchen or utensils in the BG2's at Lower Sabie, you will have to use the communal kitchen.

If you look at the Satara Map it does appear some of them will be near the fence. A circle.

Some pics BD2N

If you read Here it seems that #'s 14 & 15 are closest to the fence.

Hope this helps.

We have never stayed at Sirheni before and is very keen to go up there. I noticed that Sirheni only uses solar power and therefore does not have any powerpoints in the bungalows. Does this mean there is no fridges or do they use gas fridges? Also is there a kettle avaible to boil water?

Going on the post Here it seems there are fridges and also a communal freezer at the gate.
Sure there will be facilities for boiling water in the kettle, possibly gas.
Do have a read through the Sirheni Camp
Also some nice pics Accommodation Photos Scroll to Sirheni.
Hope it helps.

Hi pietskiet, as you have pointed out there are no power points in bungalows.they use gas fridges of a decent size also kettles are provided to put on gas rings.there is a communal freezer with numbered baskets in located near reception so any frozen food is fine, also if you ask the people on reception they will charge anything up you need ie camera batteries phones etc you will need to bring your own chargers.have a great time sirheni is our favourite camp sometimes no need to leave camp as vast amount of game comes down to the water in front of bungalows good luck with the resident leopard.
Stu :thumbs_up:

Thanks Elsa and stu, that will be more than we require.
Unfortunately we will at this stage only stay over for one night. We are meeting our entire family in Berg-en-dal on 1 January and decided last week to look for 2 addiotional nights somewhere. Sirheni was one of the few camps available but is just to far from BnD. Very fortunate that a family unit opened up in Letaba on 31/12, so the current plan is 30/12 Sirheni, 31/12 Letaba and then the long drive to BnD. If something opens up on 29/12 in Sirheni we will definately consider an additional night
