On my last trip in 2005 I noticed quickly when scheduling my daily trips I always had to think about sufficient toilets on the route...

I drink lots water and have to go quite often.

And there are not that many facilities around everywhere so I had to be careful - at the beginning I hurried to some places with a very urgent need :wink:

Then I took something with me in the car which I could use in "case of an emergency" :wink: but I didn`t really enjoy that...


Are there more toilet facilities now outside of the camps or has nothing changed?

Safrica, I'm afraid that the only thing that has changed is possibly a variation of technique.

I do think that it is something needing a bit of attention.

Defenitely not enough , look at various look out points where visitors are allowed to alight from their vehicles , especially those fairly far from toilet facilities such as Nkumbe (human defacation seemed to be the order of the day to the southern side of the parking area when I last was there 6 weeks ago) , Bobbejaankrantz (plenty evidence of toilet paper in many places) , the same at certain hides as well .

Hi.
Can anyone tell me if there are toilet facilities anywhere along the H1-8 from Pafuri to Punda Maria. I have looked at the map book and there don't seem to be any and it it quite a long drive.

We will be there in 2 weeks and I am trying to plan the trips.

Thanks
Cheryl

There are no toilet facilities between Punda and Pafuri. And I agree, it is a long road without such facilities. Personally I reckon that there should be more toilet/picnic facilities in the park (especially as I get older now and feel the need for much more such facilities).

The wild far north is not for the "weak-bladdered"... or should I say weak-bladdered AND faint-hearted :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :tongue:


Okay, jokes aside.

Taking the shortest route from Punda to Pafuri, puts you at Pafuri Picnic spot about 2 hours later (unless you meet some stubborn ellies on the way)... We've find that delaying the early morning coffee until one gets to Pafuri picnic spot helps with full bladder problems. The picnic spot is also nice and central for exploring the Pafuri area.. Just make sure you stop there last thing before heading back to Punda.

oh dear, the Kruger curse :shock:

pit stops

I also try to curb my morning drinking.. as opposed to my evening drinking. :wink:

Suddenly the wicked step mother from Snow White came to mind, but with a twist:

Bladder, bladder on the wall
who is the fullest of us all?

If you are near Crooks Cnr and need the loo, you can also use the one at the border post about 3km from there.
