Why tents only ? - I would hate to be excluded with my caravan from this proposed camp !

Len

One reason is whenever a caravan sets up next to me then the inevitable satellite dish goes up, an hour is spent pointing it in the right direction and then on occasions we have to listen to whatever they are watching. I have yet met a camper (tent) who has a satellite dish. Then there is the size , large caravans with side tents grouped together in my mind look like a squatter camp (that was a nasty remark). Also I found fellow tenter’s are friendlier to each other and the caravaners are only friendly to other caravaners. But we all have different opinions, it is just I do not like caravans I prefer tents it is more basic and similar to years gone by that’s why I would like a camp site for tents only. Also I am just being selfish.

I see in the details of this accommodation they mention there is a double bed, sleeper couch and the next point says 2 single beds and a sleeper couch? But this is only for 4 people. I assume the 2 single bed s is wrong?

They use 2 single beds to form a double bed.The sleeper couch is defenitely not fit for 2 adults.

Hi there Alf :thumbs_up:

Visiting Addo? :D

You will find the chalets very stylish and neat. Tiko is right, it is 2 single beds next to each other. Make a special request for 31 or 32. From the veranda you have a view on the waterhole down below on your right. The fence is right in front of you and many animals pass on their way to the waterhole. But take your binoculars.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if you could confirm whether there are any power points in the safari tents at Addo tented camp? I am just wondering if we would be able to charge our camera gear.

Many thanks for your help

Marie

I'm going to be staying in one of the Addo Rondavels in a few weeks, and while I know each rondavel has a fridge, with a shared kitchen area, I was wondering what each rondavel is equipped with in tems of things like cutlery, pots/pans, kettle, etc?

Hi uminnaar.
Each rondavel has a kettle and a toaster inside.
In the shared kitchen there is a cupboard with the number of your rondavel that contains all your crockery,cutlery,pots and pans,braaitongs,etc.
Athough there is a braai with a grid,if you want a separate grid for toasties or to turn your meat you need to bring your own.

We would keep cups,etc overnight in the rondavel for early morning coffee.

Enjoy your stay and hopefully the waterhole will be busy. :mrgreen:

Why tent should I request?
I have my first visit to Addo in October and have reserved a furnished tent for 3 nights. Which unit should I request for the best view, I don't mind walking to ablutions or the kitchen.
Thanks
