Thanks for those pics of Tamboti, Roaneric. :thumbs_up: Just wondering of the bird hide is functional, as every time we've been there it has been entirely overgrown.

Hi onewithnature

We haven't been there in years, so I have no idea. Maybe with the recent floods it's a bit more cleared up, but maybe some of the other mate's who was there recently can tell you more :thumbs_up:

We have booked 3 nights in a BG2 yesterday for next year....does this mean that we will stay in BD2N? :hmz:


Hi Vinkie

The BG2 units are in the E and F circle :thumbs_up:


Thank you Marijke :thumbs_up:

Didn't read well :slap: ....it's only units 1-25 in the A circle have had a name change, so I think the rest will remain BG2? :hmz:



Yes indeed Vinkie, only the A circle was upgraded. The E and F circle is still the same


We've got a BD2N and a BD3B booked for Easter - all we could got for our family of 5 due to moving from Shingwedzi- - I'm trying to work out how far away from each other the units are likely to be but after reading about the changes and renovations I'm a bit :slap: :wall: :redface: Would the BD2N be in circle A? Which circle would BD3B be in? Help please

Hi ruthp

It is a bit confusing all the changes they made and the maps that are not updated yet.

The BD3B is in the B circle and the BD2N is numbers 1-25 and they are in the A circle. What I suggest you do, is phone them and ask if they want to place you in number 49 or 50 (in the B circle) and number 1 or 2 (in the A circle). You only have a road between these units and that is very close by. If you don't do that, you could be placed in unit number 36 in the B circle and number 13 in the A circle in the worst case and then it's pretty far apart. See the map

I took this picture almost 4 years ago. It was taken from the back of bungalow 26 towards the kids playing soccer in the road near number 25. You can see how close by that is.

Good luck and enjoy Satara :thumbs_up:

Hi we have booked FU4D at Pretoriuskop and it seems that 110 is the only one available because 109 is apparently for staff or somebody. Apparently it is near the staff housing do you know if it is so and if 110 is okay and also the view? I dont want to look onto staff housing if this is the case.

Does anyone know where the LB3 bungalows are in Skukuza. Cannot find them on the Map - I think the map is very outdated.

Hi Elma

I don't know if number 109 is being used by staff. When we were there none of the units were occupied. As you can see in these pictures, number 110 is next to 109 but your braai area's are not next to each other. The units are not too close to each other.

Enjoy your stay and if you like, you can take more view pictures for us. :gflower:

Hi everyone :yaya:


There have been a few changes in Letaba. The map is not up to date yet. There is also some confusion on where some bungalows are located.


These are the changes made due to some renovations/upgrades.
If anyone has new information on changes, please PM me. :wink:


I will add the Unit number shown on the online map, and the new number (the one you use when making a booking)





Numbers 22 - 28 was BD3 units (this is still shown on the on-line map)
These are now BG3U units


Numbers 17 - 21 was BD2 units (this is still shown on the map)
These are now BG2U units


Numbers 29 and 30 was BD3 units (this is still shown on the on-line map)
These are now BD3U units


I also asked where the following numbers are located and got confirmation.
CTT2Z, number 20
CTT4Z, number 8
BD3Z, number B7

Numbers 49, 51, (this is still shown as BD4 on the on-line map)
These are now BD4V units


And for some of you, there has been some confusion about numbers 101 and 102. They were BD4’s
but it changed to BD4V units recently.


Numbers 9, 10, 11, 12, 43, 45, 48 and 52 was FF6 units
These are now FF6V units
