Simon,

You can ask the Twee Rivieren reception to forward any emergency calls to where you might be in the park, they are in radio ciontact and will get hold of you.

The reception number is 054 561 2000 / 2050

Hope this helps

Checking In at Twee Rivieren for both sides?

Unread postby JaniceE » Fri Nov 12, 2010 8:40 am

Ooooh the excitement is so strong....cant even think about work...just checking and re checking our supplies...great fun
Day1 Twee Rivieren
Day 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Nossob ( leave trailer 5 & 6 ) and off to
Day 5 & 6 Bitterpan to Urikariuus
Day 7 8 9 Nossob again leave trailer and off to
Day 10 Grootkalk pick up trailer
Day 11 12 13 Rooiputs
My question is can we do all of the check in for Bots and SA side on Day 1 at Twee Rivieren?
From Nossob down to Rooiputs can we do directly there?
Will appreciate any info and promise a trip report....although guys I am a terribly slow typist.

JaniceE,

Firstly a very warm welcome to the Forum

Regarding your question, when checking in at Twee Rivieren you can just walk to the Botswana Counters and book in there as well, then when you come back from Grootkolk you can drive straight to Rooiputs. Just remember to book out from the Botswana side again when you do get to Twee Rivieren.

Hope it helps

Yes guys, always think checking in before you drive the side road to Rooiputs,
otherwise a red faced SAN Parks tourism manager will be forced to leave his car,
run through the landscape to check your permit and punish you!

happende to me in April 2010, no joke.
We felt like criminals.

Camping at Twee

Unread postby jodie » Wed Feb 02, 2011 2:33 pm

Hi
Please could someone tell me if the camping sites at Twee can accomodate 2 vehicles. There are 6 people in our party and I can see the campsites accomodate 6 persons.
Cheers, Jodie

Camp sites at TR are not demarcated so you can camp anywhere you like depending on electricity point, length of your extension lead etc. You can park the vehicles anywhere around your camping area.

Also is this enough time in the park to exit in Botswana


Not sure what you mean by this?

If you're using tents, bring extra tent pegs! The ground is really, really hard on some sites.

I have three nights booked next week at TR camping. I was wondering what was provided for cooking and cleaning? Are there gas stoves that are usable? Are there a washing basins with hot and cold water?

Do the braai facilities for each campsite have a grid or do you need to bring your own braai grid?

Are there any electricity points that don't require those camping blue converters?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Astromat

There are no stoves of any kind at the Twee Rivieren. There is a scullery with hot and and cold water to wash your dishes and there is a laundry where you can hand wash your clothes. No washing machines. There is also a small room with normal plug points that can be used for ironing or hair dryers. Electricity at the capsite does require the blue plug.
And for the life of me I cannot remember about braai grids..probably because I do not do the braaiing...but I think you should take a grid.

Enjoy your stay

Thanks for the information, its pretty much as i expected. I stupidly forgot to check the facilities when i was there in Feb as i stayed in the chalets.

The electricity points in the room, would they be suitable for charging a camera? It's the only thing we need electricity for.

Can't wait to get on the road now.
