Hope you will have a wonderful stay and that the hippo family will still be on a sand bank just opposite 21/23.

Thanks Leana,

So looking forward to our trip this year, and glad we have chosen to stay at one camp only. No packing and unpacking so will be so much more relaxing. Especially as we only allowed to move in to our accommodation at 2pm. I find this cuts so into the day expecially in December when the gates open so early.

Anyway we are going to give it a try and will request either 21 or 23 this year.

Thanks once again :great:

Marge :D

Exactly what we do for the last 2 years. After travelling for 2 days to reach Kruger, love to unpack and settle for 5 days, the duration of all our visits :( Usually stay in the LST2U's, but this year I could not find accom for 5 nights. Therefore decide on a BD3U that was available for the time. And what a big surprise. Although the river is not quite as near, the view is even better :thumbs_up: the river lies open before you from the restaurant to the bridge. And as I said, there are even hippos on sandbanks for atmosphere :dance: :dance:

The unit was very neat and in excellent condition, love the patio, little inside kitchen and the big bathroom. The room has a door on the side which you can open for a cool breeze at night. In May it was really hot and it works wonderful. No need to put on the aircon.

We stayed in 20 and it was a good choice, but 21,22 and 23 will be all the same.

Hope you will be happy with this units. :thumbs_up: I am very :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I don't know when I can go to Kruger again.

But next time I go, Lower Sabi or Croc Bridge will definitely be on the cards 8)

Agree with Elsa and Hugh :thumbs_up:
If you have 20 meters of extension, you will be able to reach power from any camping spot :thumbs_up:

Is it joke? Does it mean that campsite unit with powerpoint doesnt have its own electric socket?? Foreigners coming by air cant bring 20m of extension like southafricans with caravans.. :hmz:

Firstly leanewel I apologise for taking so long to reply to you.

Thanks for your great input, and although I am flying to Jhb there is still the drive to Kruger.

There are so many roads to drive from Lower Sabie that there are endless choices available without not having to take the same roads every day :clap:

The time is passing quickly now and the end of the year will be here in no time

Once again thanks for sharing your views :gflower:

Morning all,
Does anyone know how the shower/toilet is situated in the Fu5 units ?
Is it 1 shared bathroom, or are there seperate bathrooms on each bedroom ?

I would also like to know if anyone has stayed in the lst2uz units recently, what is there view like, and also there condition, or are they due for refurbing ?

I have a choice of the above, if it was my choice alone, it would be the tents, however I am taking my folks, so there preference is for a hut with there own bathroom, my mom hasnt been to knp in a good while, and stayed in tamboti last, and found the camp to wild for her liking(To much bush etc), they had a unit without a bathroom thoug, while these tents are fully equiped, any advice ?

Hi all

i'm am staying at Lower Sabie with my mom on 19 and 20 Oct. The first night we have a BD2U unit and the second night a BD3U unit. I believe these are on the perimeter. Has anyone stayed in one of these units? Do you get a good view from them? i tried looking for where they are situated on the camp map but can't see them.

thanks

We are going to be camping at Lower sabie for 4 or 5 nights in November. I haven't been to the KNP for 28 years, so I really am like a novice when it comes to that part of the world. :redface:

What advice can I get from you guys and what can I expect?
