Hi Pamelajane

The BD2U's have all the same view on the river - and a fantastic view too :D. We have stayed in a BD3U a month ago, in nr 20. I think that the BD2U's start at approximately nr 23 or 25. If I remember correctly, the BD3U's come first and further down, eastwards, the BD2U's. :hmz: I am not 100% sure. Phone reception and the friendly people there will confirm the numbers of the BD2U's.

The BD3U's and the BD2U's are great accommodation - enjoy :thumbs_up:

I have not seen any complaints about tent number 29, NicoleCT.


Please see Carolv's post :

Our tent (number 29) had a lovely view across the river and we opted to settle down on the verandah with a cold beer rather than going back out again in the car. We had lots of birds around us and particularly enjoyed the company of a Heuglins Robin and its youngster.
:D

Hi NicoleCT,


I booked 28 & 29 during my visit last year. SO and I stayed in 29 and it was perfect! No noise, lights etc from the restaurant area whatsoever. Only problem was a mouse gnawing away at something in our bathroom during the night.... :evil:

It's close to the fence, reeds and water's edge and offers great views over the river. We followed a civet along the fence with our torches the one night, when it suddenly darted away. Scared off by a hyena! Was amazing! :big_eyes:

You have nothing to worry about! :thumbs_up:

We have just stayed at Lower Sabie in a BD2U -they all appear to have wonderful views of the river. We were in 81 but No 76 looks the best from what I could see (only that it had better furnishings) -i tried to get it but had no luck! If you look at the accommodation thread there are photos taken of some BD2U. We LOVED Lower Sabie :clap:

Hi All,

Maybe a silly question, but how do some of you book specific tents or units, by number?

I generally book my accomodation online and there is no facility for it there.

Do you call the camps themselves or do you do this through calling one of the SANparks offices?

Many thanks in advance for any help with this. I have always been happy with allocated accomodation in LS, but would love to book a unit with a good river view for a future visit.

Eights weeks to push until next in LS!
Regards,
iedman

The usual procedure is to send a fax to the resevation manager and give a request of 2 or 3 units you would like to stay in. This is usually done 2 - 3 weeks before your accommodation dates.

I have never been disappointed, and have always received my first request.

Good luck and have a wonderful experience

:dance: :dance:

Sorry iedman, forgot to mention that the fax is to be sent direct to the camp you will be staying at.

Good luck

Hi to all..
I am going to stay in 7 camps in Kruger, and the most (five nights) in Lower Sabie camp. I am not sure about accessibility and distance to powerpoint at campsite units. Does every campsite unit have its own powerpoint? Is it the same in all camps? Are any cookers (even pots) available in kitchen at campsites? Thanks for answers in advance :)

Hi wilddog.prg
I am not a camper so will try and give advice but sure others who know more will add to it, and maybe even correct me! 8)
I would say if you book a campsite with power then it will have a convenient point.
There are hot plates to cook on but I don't think there will be pots and pans available, those you must take yourself.

Have a look Here

Also lots of great advice and info Camping

Just my small bit of advice

Yes the camps have powerpints BUT some are a little far to reach with just an ordinary extention cord You need a nice long one.( and a blue plug in some of the camps)
Buy an inexpensive cooking pot and just Have braais most of the time. There is usually boiling water in the kitchen area to make tea coffee etc.

Bucky - good morning :D

I do not know the FU5 unit(s), but have a look at ACCOMMODATION on the LS page, you will see some photos for this FU5 unit if you click on the code. From the description it looks as if there is only 1 bathroom. The FU4V units have 2 rooms, each with own bathroom - and stunning views.

The tents are just great. The other 'Mites will help out here, but from what I read previously, it seems as if the tents are in a process of refurbing - but I am not sure. If you get a LST2U, most of them have very good views. But do yourself a favour and go to the BOARD INDEX, CAMPS and ROADS KNP, Topic: Accommodation photos. On the first page you will find an index for all the camps and units with photos. This will help a lot. The tents have a wonderful bathroom and big shower. But keep in mind that there is only a fan and no aircon.

If I can make a recommendation :hmz: If your folks are not happy with staying in the tents, have a look if a FU4V unit is not available (look at AVAILABILITY on LS page). The views are as stunning as the tents, but maybe the accom will be more userfriendly for your folks. There are photos of this units too on the above-mentioned topic.

Hi all,
Thanks for the input.
I phoned the camp, and they say the FU5 has a bathroom per room, so we will try that out.

My choice, being a regular camper would have been the tents, but this is a special gift for the folks .

I will try do an update on this unit when I am back.

Hi ww29

We have stayed in the BD3U units and they are great. You have a nice view of the river. Number 3 - 22 are BD3U units, and from number 74 upwards are BD2U units. (the map still shows the old numbers) You can look for photo's and maps in the accommodation thread here There are lots of photo's of these units. :thumbs_up:

Good luck planing your trip

Hi All

Which of the LST2 Safari tents are the best in terms of location?
I know they are not on the perimeter, but unfortunately could not get any of the LST2U ones :(

Thanks! :)
