Congrats on the anniversary and 1000'th post. Although, still no prawns??
Anyway, I have to concure with you. Having spend one night in the Pierre Joubert Guesthouse in Pretoriuskop, I have to say that I think it's one of the better accomodation types in any of the camps. Usually with a certain amount of people it can also cost you less or even the same price as a bungalow would cost you.
The peace, privacy and views you get are not comparable to any other in the camps.
As I've said. I had to privilige to stay in the Pierre Joubert Guesthouse in Pretoriuskop.
At a cost of also R1665,00 per night and a base rate of 1 - 4 people it would cost you R416,25 per person per night. Compare that to other accomodation costs outside the park and you will see that it's quite affordable. At an extra rate of R310,00 per adult extra (This guesthouse can sleep 8 people), it will end up working out to R363,13 per person per night. That is getting very affordable.
This unit is very private with a huge entertainment area. It's fence off from the rest of the camp.
The whole area is build in a half circle shape with a central area for a braai and leading onto the main communal house.
The communal facilities are top notch with a dining room,
tv room with DSTV for the sports junkies,
a communal bar and kitchen, and a small toilet,
The braai area is fantastic, but with a place in the central yard to have a bon fire, it was more alluring.
On top of the communal house it also has your own lookout point where one can enjoy a beautiful view of the bush and the sunset while enjoying an Amarula topped with ice.
The communal house looks over the central yard and to the fence with great views to the bush and the unsuspecting visitors
There are 4 seperate units from the communal house, which enjoys the same view as above.
Each unit features a double bed, a small living room and Full bathroom with shower, bath and a feel that will make you think you have arrived in paradise. Not forgetting that we are lazy and that it becomes hot in the summer, they have provided each unit with an aircon in the room, and as a bonus, it can be operated with a remote control. The units all have sliding doors opening to the central area and come provided with towels, soap and bedding.
At these prices you get the ultimate in luxury, yet still have the freedom to enjoy your own company, braai your own meat and have a great night around the campfire with friends, looking around at the fence for the unsuspecting night visitors.
A definite if you are more than 2 people, or when you want to treat yourself like some people who claim to make the best prawns.
