Hallo all

I have booked bungalow BG2HB in Satara but can't find it on the camp layout. Can anyone tell me the bungalow number for BG2HB as there is only 1 in camp and what is the diffirence between BG2 and BG2HB.


Hi Laeveldleeu

Unit BG2HB is in the B circle. Number 42 to be exact. It's the one bungalow in the B circle that has not been upgraded. I have pictures of that unit and will add them to the accommodation threat later today.

Why has just that one unit not been upgraded. I booked this morning and I asked what the difference was between the hb and was told that the hb are the newer ones,,,, so I booked that. Only after did I discover that there is only one, so am thinking that I should phone and change it to another unit.

Also, some confusion here as the B circle is actually one of BG3 with 3 beds, and the photo of the BG2HB shows 3 beds .... so are there actually 3 beds in this unit. I would love to see the photos of it when you have time to post them :)


Hi barkingmad

I really don't know about this unit. If you don't trust it, try to change to another unit. I added some pictures of number 42 in the accommodation thread. Have a look HERE

Have a nice day

Hi all; We have reservations for different types of bungalows at Satara, described as BG, BD, etc. In some cases the accompanying info says communal kitchen, in others it says braai and in yet others neither. Can anyone please lay out the exact situation for the various levels of bungalows? Massachusetts resident.

All accommodation has Outside braais even the camp sites . Very basic If it says no utensils you have to supply your own pots and pans .. but these can be purchased at a very minimal rate at the shops outside and inside the park For braais you have to supply charcoal or firewood and some thing to start the fire ( matches and firelighters)
Communal kitchens have double hotplates and sinks and always boiling water . Best place to meet people and discuss sightings with them etc. etc. Most units have small fridges with a small freezer section.
Have a great time

Hi paddyross and welcome to the forum.

Firstly lets start with the braai. Every unit will have one.

And now the BD and BG. Please could you let us have the exact codes and we can have a look. Each camp has a slightly different interpretation of the codes. The BD units tend to have a kitchenette - 2 hot plates, a kettle, a kitchen sink and utensils (pans, plates, cutlery and cups). The BG units have no cooking equipment but the communal kitchen will be close by and will have a number of hot plates and a hot water geyser (for coffee etc) and sinks for washing up.

All units will have a fridge.

Looking at the other codes - V means a perimeter view, Z means disabled access and E I think means the stoep is enclosed (but don't quote me). I have no idea what N or B indicate, sorry.

Warm welcome paddyross! :clap:

The BG bungalows will have a fridge but not a kitchen and you will either have to do a braai (barbeque) or use a communal kitchen which has hot water and a hot plate cooking and washing up areas but you will have to supply your own utensils and cooking equipment.
The BD bungalows will have their own kitchens with utensils, pots and pans etc and a braai stand outside.
I see Saraf has also described the various accommodations. :thumbs_up:

Just a heads up to let you know the shop at Satara is currently undergoing a revamp and stock seemed a bit limited.
They had the curios, magazines, meat, cooldrinks etc but some foodstuff was pretty limited.
A large part of it is cordoned off and inaccessible.
I did ask the cashier when she thought the renovations would be completed but she didn't know.

Not sure where to post this. I have a question regarding Satara campsites with / without power CK6 or CK6P.

Can one book a CK6 but use extention lead to share with a CK6P ? (due to non availability of an actual CK6P campsite).

If I have booked a CK6P for 3 nights and then a CK6 for another 3 nights can I actually use the same CK6 campsite with an extension cable (or CK6P, either way) for the entire duration ? Obviously one does not want to pack up everything and move a few metres further.

As far as I am aware basically everything goes (mostly due to people not caring and doing their own thing regardless of rules?). I want to do the right thing but am not really sure how they work this allocation, as no one seems to check it and site numbers not allocated. At the moment we are booked CK6 and CK6P alternated on every single night due to non availabilities. Can we use the same CK6 or CK6P stand for the entire duration without having to move every single night ?

Any help appreciated.

Regards
Nicole

Nicole, we had a similar booking, and found when Satara is busy, there are no extra plug points to use, if you have not booked a site with power. You also cannot plug into the kitchen, which some do I know.

Rather go prepared to cope the days without power, and also keep an eye on availability, things might just change.
