As far as I know :

FA4 is one large room, with the kitchen in a corner and two single beds. In addition, a sleeper couch suitable for children.

FA2/4a is two rooms, one bedroom with 2 single beds, and one room for the kitchen area and two more single beds.

Both are spacious, and pleasant - I don't like having the fridge in the bedroom, so prefer FA2/4a. Also the FA4 have a row of units in front of them, whereas the FA2/4a has a view out over the riverbed. But this does not worry me, I don't spend much time in camp !!

Hope this helps

Hi Safarigil
Just to confirm what peterbee has already told you.
We find the FA2/4A more suitable for our family of 4 as sleepercouch in the FA4 is way too small for teenagers! If you are only requiring accom for 3 people then the FA4 is absolutely perfect

Thanks so much peterbee & dreamer for the advice!
We (the two of us) have only been camping at Twee Rivieren before, but we thought that we might try the cottages for our next visit to KTP!

We are coming to KTP in July for our first visit (first to South Africa as well). We have booked the family chalet (FCH6) as we have 4 children. Does anyone know if the chalet has heat in it given it will be cold? Same question for the family cottage at Nossob (FA6). Should we bring blankets, etc.? Thanks.

Hi Keith and welcome to the forum. There are definitely no heaters in any of the chalets in KTP. Twee Riveiren has an air conditioner though and I am not sure whether that blows hot air as well. I don't think you will need to bring extra blankets. The chalets are normally stocked with enough blankets. What I do suggest though is a hot water bottle or two....especially for the kids. Warm jackets and beanies are essential for the early mornings and evenings!
Enjoy!

The airco in Twee Rivieren can be put on heat too. We only used it in June in the morning for 10 minutes so shower / dressing has more comfort. Outside much to our surprise the windows and car was iced.

Hiya,

We are thinking of hiring a chalet (at Twee Rivieren camp) KTP and hiring a 4x4 instead of hiring a motorhome as will be too difficult on the roads.

Just wondering what they were like? any advice on specific things to take with us?

thanks very much
amy

Hi amy

As you are going to KTP next month i would take any accommodation you can get and then just ENJOY yourself, KTP is the best park i have been too, we stayed in four differant camps in May this year and enjoyed them all, in their own differant ways.
Is this your first trip to SANparks, if so you will be spoilt, if not you will see big differances.
one thing i would advise is to take insect repellant, it is not a malaria area but trust me you can still get bitten, especially if you have that sweet English blood (like me) for more info have a look at icurrie's trip report

have fun and enjoy

Russ

I think the chalets in TR are very nice.
We slept there two nights last August: the rooms are big and clean, in the kitchen there are a lot of things (cutlery, stove, cups, ...) but we had dinners at Lion's Den Restaurant.

2R used to have a pretty dire restaurant - is it still there and is it the same or have they yet moved beyond grated pineapple and carrot in their salads? We are going up there in March and just planning our meals and it is always nice to not have to cook for one night.

We were there in August last year and sorry to say, not too impressed with the cost, the food and the service. This was our second visit to the restaurant. We do understand the location but have decided that in future will just pack in enough food for an extra meal and self-cater.

My experience is somewhat dated (october 2007) but I had no complaint at all. It looked good and clean, service was good, the food was great. (Skilpadjies! Yummy!)
