Clip, Satara B circle

This clip was taken from our cottage number 41 in the B circle. The monkeys were a bit of a problem and as my youngest tried to stay away from them, the oldest wanted to chase them away from number 37. They were unpacking the groceries the people left on the table.

SABLE OVERNIGHT HIDE:

Here are a few pics of the Sable ovenight hide when we stayed there on a full moon evening in Dec'11. Unfortunately it was overcast, but fortunately we enjoyed a nice cool night.

The view from the back of Sable dam:
Image

The inside of hide:
Image

The beds inside with mosquito nets:
Image

The inside of the boma area - park cars safely and have a well catered braai area:
Image

The path to the toilet - longdrop. A water container and paper is available. It is locked, but will get key with bedding at Phalaborwa Gate reception.
Image

Be nice to the resident frog in the hide - it will catch a % of the mozzies. :hmz:

Hi Leanawel

The BD3U units are all with a little wall between them. They are not so private, but I have to say, when we stayed there, we were not bothered by the sounds of the neighbors. Number 18 and 20 are great, try to get one of them.

I returned from kruger this morning and made some more pics and video's. I will start posting them tomorrow.

I would also recommend a higher number from 15 onwards. The lower numbers are far too close to the noise from the deck. If i remember correctly the last 2 BD3U bungalows are for wheelchair use only. Not sure what the numbers are but i think they are about 20
Made my booking for Desember 2014!! Whoohoo

Hi Leanawel

It's stunning. We've stayed in number 1 for the first time, and it was really amazing. A sight for sore eyes. :dance:
