The new River Front chalets at Mata Mata!

Very up-market - DSTV, aircon and all. The accommodation is very nice - way past comfortable!

This seems like a silly question but I have to ask it
I have accommodations at Mata Mata for a 2 br riverfront chalet.At the time of the booking there was no availability for back to back bookings for a 1br riverfront chalet so I grabbed it
something has opened up and I am thinking of changing it because of some concerns
In the pop up description of the 2 br chalets there is no mention of a frig,cooking area
Just lounge
These are the highest priced accommodations in camp I can't imagine they wouldn't have a fully equipped kitchen!
Let me know if you have stayed in them or walked through them
Thanks!

Hi Judik..........they do have and it's very well equipped!! The 2 and 1 bedroom chalet's kitchens look exactly the same only difference is the amount of chairs at the table........... :thumbs_up:

Give a moment and I'll go dug up some photos of both chalets for you......... :thumbs_up:

Thanks,lion queen,you're the best :clap:
I think I will stay put.The difference between the one and 2 bedrom is not that great and since there is a chance I will only get a credit instead of a refund it will work out bwetter

Hi Everybody :D

Just been lucky to get 3 nights at Kalahari Tented Camp, 31 Dec - 3 Jan :dance: :dance: in a FAMILY DESERT TENT (FDT4).

Last time that we stayed in this wonderful camp, we did not have a view on the waterhole. I would like to make a special request this time.

Any recommendations for a FDT4 with a view on the waterhole? It's summer and with the heat I shall probably be up all night - watching :big_eyes:

Thanks :thumbs_up: Leana

Hi Leanawel

Sorry, haven't been there yet. Maybe some of the other peeps can answer you on that one. Enjoy your stay there, I'm sure your going to love it and sit outside the whole night :wink:

Hi Leanawel.
What ever you do try to avoid number 8.
It has a tree right in front of it that obscures the waterhole completely.
The waterhole is floodlit now so a view is definately a plus.

Numbers 7 and 9 have good views and are the closest to the waterhole.
I do not know whether they are FDT4 type tents.

Whichever one you get,it is a great camp overlooking the riverbed and also has amazing sunsets.
Enjoy your trip. :mrgreen:

:thumbs_up: Thanks Roaneric and Enrico

I am going to phone and ask whether 7 or 9 is a FDT4 type and try to get one of them.

I am really quite excited to end 2012 and begin 2013 in the Kalahari desert :dance: :dance:
