Hi pucelou,

The camp maps are posted on page 1. They'll give you an idea of the layout. Will come back to you re best bungalows. Have to run.

I see what you mean. I have often wondered about that myself. I think from the codes you have, you don't have perimeter bungalows, except from Croc bridge. But I'm not sure. I found this info, but perhaps some one else can help you further.

@ Shingwedzi, we stayed in Bungalow 62 in Block B. Right next to the ablution. Not much traffic as I would have thought. Close to camp kitchen.

@ Satara, we stayed in Bungalow A1 ... excellent location if you don't intend staying there long.

@ Skukuza, Bungalow 195


More Satara

Stayed in block BG3, i think it was number 17. Very near to the pool and straight on to the reception. At the back of the BG3 you have the camping ground. Lots of birds in the central area in front of the bungalows.

This page gives you all the accommodation details, including which have a view. NG2U is a perimeter hut and will have some view.

I think NG2U has a perimeter view but not a river view.
It really would be helpful if the camp maps had the code on as well as the unit number :wink:

is it the right place to ask what are the best bungalows in 2 rivieren , and Nossob ? :roll:

Pucelou, you have a better chance of getting replies for those two camps if you ask here.

I am visiting Tamboti and Shingwedzi in August and was wondering if anyone could recommend a tent / hut number for each camp respectively, where it is quiet, secluded, shady and preferably with a good view of something :twisted:

At Tamboti I am in a communal tent - 2 sleeper (CTT2) and Shingwedzi in a communal hut - 3 sleeper (EH3)

Any advise would be GREATLY appreciated :wink:

oh and contact email/ numbers as to who I need to contact for each camp ... THANKS 8)

Hi Schnooks,

I can only help you with Tambotie. This camp is very bushy, and I recon [ as some others] nr. 2 and especially nr. 22 is the best option, although I cant remember whether it is a 4 or 2 sleeper... :(

For Tambotie you need to contact Orpen camp on:

Tel: +27 (0)13 735 6355
Fax: +27 (0)13 735 6359

Enjoy your stay!

Thanks Katydownunder ,
Your info helped a great deal.Have contacted Sonika at Biyamiti and she has been very helpful. :clap: As far as Talamati I think the CO4 cottages are either 2,4,or 7 .Probably much the same ,unless you or other members have some advice.
Have sorted out the pic problem ,firewall problem.
10 weeks and I will be there.Will try my hand at a trip report.

Hi Vaatjie,

all bungalows in croc bridge do have the same equipment - No. 1 - 18 are located close to the fence and No. 2 - 8 have some nice river views if the vegetation will not be too high, however, all of them are lovely.

Enjoy your stay there. :thumbs_up:

Jen, I have stayed in #2 and #3…of these two #2 is the best….has a very nice view.
If we stay there again, I will however go for #4….it’s deck offers a lot more privacy and is the only one that is right next to the fence

I agree with Jumbo.
Last June we asked for and got tent no 4.
It was definitely the most private - people basically can't see you at all once you are up on your deck, and also relatively quiet because it is the furtherest away from the campground.
The view from the deck is also quite wonderful - you can still see across the whole valley.
And our reward for being right on the fence was being able to watch civet, banded mongoose, duiker, impala and buffalo from our deck!
We have agreed that we will never stay in another tent at PM!
