YDJanet,
since you are a large family, I will recommend Bungalow - BG6 (nr 40) at Pretoriuskop. It consists of 2 bungalows with a large bathroom in the middle. It is very near the communal kitcken and also near the gate, restaurant and shop. Each of the bungalows has 3 beds and in one of them is a large fridge/freezer, and of course aircon in both.

We have been there in May again this year and if you drive around in the area, there is an abundance of animals - big 5 plus cheetah and wild dog and most of the other animals such as raptors, smaller birds, various species of antelopes, etc. You can also drive from there to any place in the South including Skukuza, Tshokwane, Orpen Dam, Mlondozi, lower Sabie and even Croc bridge in one day.

Hi Tobieo,
the only camp site that can be pre booked is Tsendze currently.
The only advice I can think of, not being a camper myself is to arrive as early as possible and check to see what is available or wait and see who is possibly moving out where there are 2 sites next to each other.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

We stayed in one of the FU4D in Feb and I think we had # 110 and as far as I recall there were only the 2 of them, 109 and 110, the next door ones, from 111 up were the bigger units FF6DB even tho the map doesn't show those.
I remember they had a better view to the fence.
I was going to ask if we couldn't be moved to one of those until I peeped in the window, (it was empty!) :tongue: and saw they were different plus they have a much bigger veranda!

Hi Bushbob

All campsites come with a braai, if you cant find one or the one at your site is in bad condition, be sure to ask reception for one. With Regards to Boiling water most picnic sites I have been to usually have an old steel kettle either on a fire or gas for boiling water if they dont have a hydroboil. Malelane, Maroela and Tzendze should all have hydroboils every comunial kitchen facility will have boiling water. :thumbs_up:

@Boske Hi Welcome to the Forums :hello:
2 tents wont be a problem as long as you are 6 people of under, if you are more than 6 people you will need to book 2 sites. 8)

From the 'extra information' letter sent out with bookings..... One campsite can have up to 2 tents, or one caravan/trailer with side tent. Up to 6 people, with base rate 2 people, extra amount payable for each extra person up to total of 6. If there are 2 vehicles then you should pay extra for the second vehicle too.

We stayed in a 3 bedded bungalow in Satara in Feb last year, if I remember correctly on the map it is one of the ones listed as BG3 in the B circle.
It had a nice extended veranda area and also included a microwave.
We had booked the LLB, the one luxury bungalow but when we arrived were told they no longer had that one any more and allocated us one of these.
Otherwise the only other one is the guest cottages but they are quite a bit more price wise, altho in the range of the semi luxury bungalows at Skukuza.

Have a look at the pic Here
you will see the extended veranda.

We are staying in a Mopani FB4 for 2 nights. Do any of you think it is worth keeping an eye on the availability in case a BD4 or a BD4V become available? Thanks guys.


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!

Thanks Grasha - I will keep my eyes open on the availability.

@Elephantears - I think numbers 49 & 51 have been reclassified as BBD4V because of their stunning location, but the map is yet to be updated.

Hi Elephantears

The map is not updated yet. I added a post Here

I contacted Mopani camp a few months ago and they told me that numbers 49 and 51 had been changed to BD4V because of their views. So if you got a BD4 that might be because that was the only ones availible.

If you try to get a nice view number that has not yet been changed, try for number 101 and 102 :wink:

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.

Less than 3 weeks until we fly to SA :D and then 5 days till Kruger!
And i have yet another question that i hope you guys may be able to answer.
Do international visitors need to bring their passports for entry into the park? I'd rather we left such important documents at my parent's house if possible.
We've paid the conservation fees when we booked our accommodation, which includes the charges for international visitors. So i wasn't sure if we need proof that she is a foriegner (Norway doesn't have any sort of ID card).

You will need the passport that you used to book the accommodation, to prove you are who you say you are.
