Shingwedzi - BD2 Unit 68

Now we had booked a BD2 unit - and were allocated to unit nr 68. This unit, however, does have facilities for the mobility challenged... I don't know if they maybe gave us a different one (?BD2Z), or if the facilities were maybe not up to scratch to be entirely wheelchair friendly. Anyway - nice unit, and recently renovated! :thumbs_up:

The shower looked very handy for a wheelchair...

...but the space around the toilet looked a bit limited - I think... :hmz:

Good morning Bushbuddies

Thanks for posting your shingwetzi pictures. Unit 68 is indeed a wheelchair friendly unit. It looks beautiful and spacious.

I added your picture to the first page. :thumbs_up:

Letaba - BD3U unit nr C30

These are lovely perimeter units in Letaba. Unit nr 30 is the last or furthest unit North against the Letaba river. We had beautiful views. It is, however, right next to the staff accomodation. They do sing at night - which can add to the African experience, but some might prefer the sound of the bush and not human singing.

Satara - BD2V unit 168

If we go to Satara again (I should rather say WHEN we go to Satara again), we'll definitely either get one of these units or one of the units in the B-circle. We have never stayed in the B-circle, but it looks quite nice from the outside.

The BD2V units are perimeter units and have a lovely view of the bush. You can sit on your verandah and watch the impala, zebra and blue wildebeest pass to go the waterhole. Birdlife is in abundance. The units are arranged in semicircles and unit 168 is at the end of one of these circles - right next to the fence! :thumbs_up:

The view from the verandah:

Yes - the whole kitchenette area (and bathroom?) has had a nice make-over since the last time I stayed in those perimeter units (I think in 167).

Satara wasn't on our itinerary for our next trip, but now I wonder... maybe it's time to go check out the upgraded units at Satara :hmz: :lol:
