The Mazhou Camping Site in Mapungubwe National Park will be opening to the public on the 1st of March 2007. The site, situated close to the Limpopo Forest Tented Camp in the Western Section of the Park caters for 10 caravans or tents, and each camping site is equipped with a powerpoint.

You can find that here.

Bushmaster, by saying tented camp are you not referring to the Limpopo Forest tented camp? That is a different camp to Mazhou.

Found this
Quote:
Many visitors to the area will be happy to learn the park will open a camping site in the beginning of 2007. This will provide a true bush experience in the middle of the Limpopo riverine forest that is favored by elephants, bushbuck and many other mammals. Although the ten sites have private water taps and electricity points, the camping won’t be fenced in. Therefore it won’t be a place for the fainthearted, "this is the real experience", Nemaheni smiles.


here

but are they talking about LFTC? I see the units have a ceiling fan, so assuming they have power points?

They are referring to the campsites and not the tented camp. I assume that if it has a kitchen it should have plugs unless the fridge and stove run off gas.

I'm sure someone on the forum who has been there can assist.

Hello BushMaster. Yes, there is electricity in the Tented camp. I don't no the exact set-up of the powerpoints, but there's at least the lights, the fan and the fridge that need power. :wink:

Perhaps you should also consider getting a car charger (they run off the cigarette lighter) for your camera batteries. Then you don't have so many worries about electricity in the camp. :wink:

Hi Arks, yes, I have looked at that and I need to install a full dual battery system to run a fridge, lights and inverters and so on. Apparently its not just a case of getting a charger for the car, like a cell phone.

Its quiet a big project, and we off to Mapungubwe next weekend.

Unless I have been misinformed. Do you have such a charger?

cheers
Ian

The car charger for camera batteries is a very simple affair and yes I do have one and always bring it with me to SA. You should be able to get one at most camera shops? Or do a google search? I got mine two years ago, so don't recall the details.
