BD3U without a doubt. They also have an enclosed kitchen area with dining table and chairs in addition to the outdoor table and chairs, so no need to lug chairs around either

We`re (hubby and me) thinking about booking either a BD2U or a BD3U bungalow for a few days at Lower Sabie for beginning of next year. They are both available on the dates we want, same price (R10 difference), similar description on the webpage. The way I understand this, they are all in "two`s", renovated and all also have riverviews, is that correct?

Are kitchen utensils, such as cooking and frying pans, cuttlery etc provided?

So, what`s the difference? Which ones are nicer - BD2U or BD3U - and which would you choose?

BD3U everytime. They are bigger and have an enclosed kitchen.

Kitchen consists of a couple of hotplates, pots (not sure about the frying pan), plates, cutlery and the fridge. Oh and that's where they have put the third bed. They have all been renovated and are very, very nice. There's a table in the litchen and also an table outside on the patio so plenty of room to sit.

In the BD2U's the fridge is either in a locked cabinet outside or in the bedroom, which is a nuisance. Book quickly as they are very popular.

UPDATE:

Just called SanParks to make a payment and the extremely competent agent Michelle/Pretoria office informed me the FU4V is a river view.

We stayed in the unit next to these when we were there in Jan. They were almost finished and I couldn't resist peeking through the fence. They look stunning.

They are facing the river at the opposite end of the camp from the restaurant and thus are in a really quiet location, with few passers by. The swimming pool is around the corner too, if it gets too hot.

Having stayed in renovated units previously I would expect you to be fairly comfortable.

Dear All,

Thanks for the query and indeed these are next to Keartland and replace the old two double unit clusters 93/94 and 95/96. They are nicely situated with river view and have the typical two bedroom with shower and toilet and open-plan living/kitchen area. Quite elementary but should be comfortable and with nice view. It would be great to get feedback after you have stayed there.

Kind regards.

JOEP
These units are most welcome, especially for those that have families of 4 or more, as the previous accommodation was only EH5 huts or the 2x FU5 cottages, which for their price, aren’t exactly value for money.

Please LS/SANParks build a few more units for 4 or more at LS :pray: :pray:

No, the Lower Sabie map is out of date.

I can't remember what numbers the BD2U bungalows are but they are further away from the restaurant. I know we had 81 and 82 in Nov 09 so they are around that area. They have a double bed rather than 2 singles, some have a cage for the fridge so it isn't in your bedroom and they have been upgraded.

The BG2U have not been upgraded yet and are in a really sorry state.

The BD2U units are great, don't change your booking. They are semi-detached so you are linked to your neighbour but so well built you will not hear a thing. Outside there's a wall which separates the stoep/braai area.

Hi there :D Storma

Just returned from LS - I went to the new Family Units to see for myself for future visits and I can tell you that they are GREAT :dance: :dance: . They are situated at the very end of the chalets with a view. They are very near to the fence and river in front. The view is super. :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

They have a nice and cozy semi-private patio with braai, inside a big living area with a complete kitchen with stove, double door fridze and even a microwave. From the living area two sliding doors lead to 2 identical rooms, each en-suite.

The decorations are very stylish - you will have a wonderful time. :thumbs_up:

Alf,

They are brand new and the map hasn't been updated yet. They are at the opposite end from the restaurant, next to the Keartland guest house. They are renovated BG2U units.

Alf, just returned from lower sabie yesterday.

There are two of the 4 bed units, numbers 93 and 94, right next to the guesthouse. They upgraded 4 of the old bg2u bungalows to the new two bed units, very very nice view, small lapa area, nice kitchen, microwave etc ( will ad photos to accomodation thread)
They are currently renovating units 92, 91, 90, 89 ( right next door) to new bd2u units, the only old bg2u units left that side are 85, 86, 87, which they will apperently renovate later.

Hope it help.

wbevents, thanks for the info on the FU4V family cottages. Are they suitable for two couples? Do the cottages have two seperate bedrooms and bathrooms?

We stayed at a BD3U unit last year and I wonder if two BD3U's (for 4 persons) are more spacious then the FUV4 cottage?
