Good day William and Baz

The nrs for The CO4 are indeed 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 - however they do not all have views.
All the cottages from #10 onwards have virtually no view - situated further away from the river and having bush in front of them.
The bests views are in order of preference 7, 6, 9, 2, 1, (11-15 none) for the GC5 and 8, 5, 4, 3, (10 none) for the CO4.

We stayed in 161 in Satara which I would recommend you are semi private, and noticed 167 looks like a nice one as well, these two are the closest to the perimeter (only two bed though).
At Letaba we stayed in 64 also very private.
I must mention we requested the specific bungalows well in advance and was fortunate to get them.

Hi Hippo,

Katja it is a 3 bed bungalow.

luislang, I have stayed in these units before as well. The information for these huts is as follows:

Hut (EA3U)
- 3 single beds
- Aircon
- Basin
- Communal ablutions
- Communal Kitchen
- Fridge
- No utensils
- Perimeter
(Taken from Letaba 'Accommodation Availability')

They're absolutely great. :D They are all located very close to the ablution facilities and excellent value for money, unless you prefer having your own kitchen and bathroom.

The view is to die for, but then again it's my favourite camp. :D

LL, I agree with you. These huts are really good value for money. They actually have better views as the so-called perimeter bungalows.
We have stayed in # 32 and # 33. The ablution block is right behind these units.

I have a reservation for a 3 bed hut (BE3) with sink,utensils etc.in Skukuza.
Does anybody have a favourite hut number for this type of accommodation?
I find the experience of the forum members immensely helpful .

W@H recommends no 195 on the previous page. You can have a look on the camp map to see its location.

Punda Maria: Safari Tent 3
Bateleur: Bungalow 1
Mopani: Bungalow 49
Olifants: Bungalow 19
Satara: Bungalow G179
Tamboti: Safari Tent 40

hi everybody

i am a new member but have read a lot on the forum.

can anybody recommend a specific chalet/unit number at talamati? i will be there for 2 nights with my mom from germany in the first week of december. we are going for one week, the other camps are lower sabi (tents # 16 or 21) and olifants (unit 9).

i know december is going to be hot but i am soooo looking forward to the kruger again. i only every stayed in a bush camp in biyamiti years ago which was magic, the staff there is really good. we had a night drive with no great sightings but the way the ranger explained everything was so worth while = one of our best night drives ever.

thanks for some tips.

Are there any bungalows in Skukuza that have river views or are on the perimeter besides the Luxury River View Bungalows and the Guesthouses?

Can anyone explain the BD2E bungalow? What exactly is a "closed veranda"? Are all of this type located in a certain area?

Any help with choosing where to stay in Skukuza would be greatly appreciated.

hi
Only Lux bungalows and guest houses have river view.

Closed verandahs have mosquito netting enclosures .

Stayed in one and hated it. Felt like a convict
