The fence is chock-a-block. I believe a paraplegic site will be erected oposite the ablution. So maybe there will be some building activity there soon. The elephants gave us a road show 7meters from the fence at sunset tonight.

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.
