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No, the Lower Sabie map is out of date.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.

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?

Perfect for two couples, much more space than the bd3u's,yes seperate on-suite rooms, i did post some pictures in the accomodation thread.Only draw back are the construction taking place next door, but if you are going out early and come back late it's not a problem, they are obviously behind on schedule as they were working on sunday and on the public holiday !

Hi All
Does anyone have a view on which are the best LST2U safari tents insofar as location is concerned. We have reserved two for next year and would like adjacent sites. From the map it would appear that 16 and 17 are good?

Hi John,
Have you seen the view from number 27 ?
We were in #19 recently and although we loved it there :D , I think #20 had a slightly better view.
I actually think them all to be great !

Hi Kirsty & Rooikat

As far as I understand an LST2 tent is a tent not suitable for disabled people and without river view. Nr. 15 is one of the best if you booked this since it is at the fence on the western side of camp.

LST2Z are units without river view and suitable for disabled people. I'm not sure about the bust unit for this type

Only the units where there is a "U" in the code have river view. So LST2U will have river view but not suitable for the disabled. Nr. 27 is a very good option.

LST2ZU are suitable for the disabled and have river view. Here the best option is definitely nr. 21. If you can't get 21, 22 is also not bad. But it depends on the code / type of unit you booked.

SO if there is a "Z" in the code it is suitable for the disabled and a "U" is for river view.

We stayed in nr. 21 last Thursday and it was great. We wanted to have 27, but since we booked the last tent available it was an LST2UZ so there is only 3 or 4 units with this code and 21 was one of them. Under Lower Sabie's "Camp Home" site you can view a map of the camp. Sorry don't know how to create a link. (avialability, kruger national park, lower sabie, camp home, on the right side of screen map

Game viewing was excellent. We had 7 different lion sightings on the H4-1 in the 3 days and 2 on the H4-2. The H4-1 was by far the best road to drive. Sure it's because it's very dry currently and the Sabie river is one of very view water suppliers now.

Enjoy.
