Hi kujo!

Look in This thread - great thread with links to the camp's maps - showing where each type of unit is located, and with pictures of specific units. Follow the easy links on page 1 of the thread... :wink:


Shot Bushbuddies, sort of forgot about that thread... :redface: :thumbs_up:

Homer.s, I can see why the map on the website might be confusing........they are indicated as BD2U, I've reported that.

But we have stayed in more than one of them and it's definitely 3-22.

Have a look here for photos of the accommodations.

Another really cool way to spend a bit of time which doesn't involve driving long distances is a visit to sunset dam.
Another perfect location where one can relax and let nature come to you.
There is always something interesting happening around the edge of the dam.

Hi Pamelajane

The BD2U's have all the same view on the river - and a fantastic view too :D. We have stayed in a BD3U a month ago, in nr 20. I think that the BD2U's start at approximately nr 23 or 25. If I remember correctly, the BD3U's come first and further down, eastwards, the BD2U's. :hmz: I am not 100% sure. Phone reception and the friendly people there will confirm the numbers of the BD2U's.

The BD3U's and the BD2U's are great accommodation - enjoy :thumbs_up:

I cannot remember how to post messages anymore so my apologies if this is in the wrong section etc.

Has anyone ever staid in safari tent number 29 at Lower sabie ? (LST2U)

I have been allocated this unit and am a bit worried about noise and light levels from the restaurant side. I did request certain other tent numbers but it seems they possibly could not assist with other ones as 29 was alllocated. Any feedback highly appreciated.

I have not seen any complaints about tent number 29, NicoleCT.


Please see Carolv's post :

Our tent (number 29) had a lovely view across the river and we opted to settle down on the verandah with a cold beer rather than going back out again in the car. We had lots of birds around us and particularly enjoyed the company of a Heuglins Robin and its youngster.
:D

Hi NicoleCT,


I booked 28 & 29 during my visit last year. SO and I stayed in 29 and it was perfect! No noise, lights etc from the restaurant area whatsoever. Only problem was a mouse gnawing away at something in our bathroom during the night.... :evil:

It's close to the fence, reeds and water's edge and offers great views over the river. We followed a civet along the fence with our torches the one night, when it suddenly darted away. Scared off by a hyena! Was amazing! :big_eyes:

You have nothing to worry about! :thumbs_up:

We have just stayed at Lower Sabie in a BD2U -they all appear to have wonderful views of the river. We were in 81 but No 76 looks the best from what I could see (only that it had better furnishings) -i tried to get it but had no luck! If you look at the accommodation thread there are photos taken of some BD2U. We LOVED Lower Sabie :clap:

Hi All,

Maybe a silly question, but how do some of you book specific tents or units, by number?

I generally book my accomodation online and there is no facility for it there.

Do you call the camps themselves or do you do this through calling one of the SANparks offices?

Many thanks in advance for any help with this. I have always been happy with allocated accomodation in LS, but would love to book a unit with a good river view for a future visit.

Eights weeks to push until next in LS!
Regards,
iedman

The usual procedure is to send a fax to the resevation manager and give a request of 2 or 3 units you would like to stay in. This is usually done 2 - 3 weeks before your accommodation dates.

I have never been disappointed, and have always received my first request.

Good luck and have a wonderful experience

:dance: :dance:
