Construction at Nossob Aug 2015 to Oct 2016

Unread postby Son godin » Wed Aug 19, 2015 8:55 pm

Construction work will commence at Nossob during August 2015 with the development of new riverfront chalets and luxury camping sites as well as the replacement of the camping site ablution facility. According to planning the construction work will take place over a period of 14 months. We apologise for any inconvenience caused


I've just came aware after reading the notice above on Kgalagadi park page that construction will start this month at Nossob camp. Can we get more information regarding the construction phases and how it will effect the visitors.

When will the camp fence be moved and a new entrance build running at the back of the camp? Where will the construction workers be accommodated and how will it effect availability of water in the campsite.

According to a plan the chalets and new campsites will be build next to the entrance and exit roads north and south of the hide. Will it be required to drive through the construction area and will there be any renovations to the hide and if, when will it be done

I've booked for Dec and very disappointed that we will not have the usual quiet time in the hide and even the camp site due to construction taking place. With more info on the construction phases and also the period construction will take place over Dec will help us to make a few changes to our plans. Usually closing over Dec, but will it be 11 Dec or 16 Dec?

We will also be in Nossob in December. Hoping the Hide will at least not be affected then... :pray: But do look forward to possibly staying in a "riverfront unit" in Nossob one day... :whistle:
