Hi,
Am posting some pics of our recent accommodation at various parks - for those that may be interested in getting a general idea of what the places look like. Not sure if these have been posted before. Now that I know this site is available, I'll be sure to take better pics and note more details in future.

Will post each place seperately. More pics of other places to follow in due course.

Hi Buglette.

Actually this thread was just for kruger park accommodation, but I will add a section for other SANPark accommodations on the front page as well. :thumbs_up:

Thanks and we would love to see much more pics from you.

Tankwa Karoo

We stayed at Paulshof cottage, a few kilometres from Reception. Blissfully quiet. No electricity - only paraffin lamps. Gas for fridge. Donkey for hot water. For more details see my Travel Tale 'Tinkering in the Tankwa'.

Agulhas

There are 3 cottages at Rhenosterkop. I think we stayed in No.2, a two sleeper. Very cosy. More comments in my Travel Tale 'Scratching the Bottom of Africa'.

On a 3+week trip to Kruger in August/September of 2011, we were lucky enough to stay for a few nights in our first "bush camp," Boulders. We have been enjoying private camps (Biyamiti, etc) for the last decade, and this will not be the last time we stay here. Secluded, open and a beautiful space.

We enjoyed both the lazy days of sitting 15ft (4m?) off the ground and watching hers of animals meander around the waterhole (which is kept fill through a bore/pump when needed), the bird-life that started before dawn and ended just after dusk, and the nights sitting in braai area (constructed into granite boulders) listening to the dark night.

There was a pair of klipspringers living in the hill right next to the huts. No predators were seen or heard (in fact, on our trip overall, the nights were extremely quiet - no hyaenas, lion, or other expected sounds) around the camp. A few herds of elephants would pass through in waves, and a few very large herds of buffalo also were daily visitors.

There is electric power now (generator, which can be heard if you listen carefully) but we hardly used it, except for the fridge and to recharge some cameras, etc.

There are only two roads leading to the camp, and they were in pretty rough shape when we used them.
Each cabin has 2beds and an en-suite bathroom and a patio. One cabin has 4beds, too.

The on-site staff were excellent and very helpful.
