Emily86,

Sorry i can't help you on that question because i haven't stayed in these tents myself. I was asked during december 2009 while in the camp to check which tents have the best view. I was never inside them as they were all occupied.

Punda tents :- no 1 is the disabled one with easiest access.
It has shortest wooden ramp/path to the unit and I dont think it has stairs.
Some of others' ramps are steep or have steps.
The shower is spacious.

I have been going to Kruger on and off (more on lately) and in my naivety, I didn't realise that you could request specific bugalows etc (though I realise it's only a request and can't be guaranteed)

We have the folowing bookings:
Skuk BD2
Letaba BD2
Skuk BD2E

Can anyone advise what to ask for?
Last time in Letaba we had horrible position near laundry and pool. Felt very cramped in.

Would have liked diabled but you can't book that online too far in advance.
Wonder if I could change?

Thanks.

Morning All,

With two weeks to go :dance: we are trying to find the "best" locations but I'm struggling with finding a couple of places on the camp maps, so hope some can help! :pray:

Looking for BD2N on the map at Satara and best location within.
Lower Sabie we have BD2U, i know it's perimeter but what numbers on map?
Mopani we have BD4, from reading here I believe either 49,51, 101 or 102 will give best dam view?

Any help gratefully appreciated.
Thanks :thumbs_up:

Maddie, not sure where the Satara unit will be, but if one hasn't got a perimeter chalet not sure it matters too much? :?

Mopani, I can definitely say #49 is the one with a fantastic view, #51 next, we have had both of those and been more than happy.

Lower Sabie's BD2's seem to be the ones on the map from the Keartland Guest house down in that circle.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Elsa and Ruud (again) :clap:

The Satara BD2N is perimeter so good to see what part of the circle is at the fence.
Will put in a request for the Mopani ones and cross my fingers we get lucky with a view of Pioneer Dam :D

Thanks folks :thumbs_up:

Hi all,

Help time again..... :pray:

I have used the email addresses in the camp contact section to try and request my specific bungalows from each camp however they have all come back with an error message. :( Not sure if it's because they are old addresses or what? So doesa anyone have contacts for the following camps, please.

LS, Satara, Mopani, Letaba, Tambotie(Orpen) and Skuks.

Thanks again :thumbs_up:

Good morning fellow Forumites.
I've been an avid reader, now writing my first post.

This is such a helpful section/topic, but need some recent advice. Will be staying in Satara in a BD2V for the 1st time next year (yes only next year :roll: ,but I've already got the fever...) Where would the best place be to stay? Near the restaurant with a view of the waterhole or further down along the fence?

It will also be our first Balue stay... CAN NOT WAIT! Any tips?

Lower Sabie BD2U is unit no 73-84, I called the camp as we are going there as well and have booked the same kind of unit.

Thanks Maddie no 173 sounds great!! :) Will be sure to ask for it then. Already counting the days...
BTW: which camp is best to check-in at for Balule, Satara will be 'en route', read conflicting posts on this? Also when requesting a specific hut, should I contact Satara or Olifants :huh:
