Coming back to detailed plans for my KTP trip.
1. I am using Google Maps to plan the trip and saw something they call Agfa Hide Park in this website: http://www.african-safari-journals.com/ ... -park.html
It is probably the Nossob hide... But it seems far away from Nossob Camp, where we will stay 3 nights. Our plans is to go to the hide basically every night and stay there as long as we can. It will be June and freezing,so we are not sure how long can we really endure. But anyway we were really planning to stay in the hide watching the animals. But looking at the map I am in doubt if we can reach the hide by foot from Nossob Camp, or if we can go by car.... So, please, people experience in KTP, could you tell me if our plans are feasible, and, if so, how can we reach the hide?
2. Another doubt we have is about recharging our batteries for photographs and videocameras. We will have two batteries per each, and this is likely to be enough for a single day. But here is our itinerary:
1 June 2013 - Twee Rivieren - Here we have energy all the time. So, no problem
2 June 2013 - Kieliekrankie - the information is that there is "Solar power for lights, gas for hot water". Is it possible to recharge batteries there. Are there available plugs in the tents?
3-4 June 2013 - Kalahari Tented Camp - the information is "Gas and solar energy". If it is not possible to recharge there, I will have to change the plans to spend some time in Mata Mata recharging. Otherwise, we will be with no equipment for probably a whole day;
5 June 2013 - Twee Rivieren - No problem.
6-8 June 2013 - Nossob - No electricity from 21h30 - 05h00 daily, but otherwise energy will be available. We just have to leave batteries charging for the camera, which has independent recharger. With the videocamera is a bit more complicated, since the batteries charge in the camera, but we can do it.
9 June 2013 - Gharagab - Solar power for lights, gas for hot water. If no charging is possible, we will really have to save energy and lose opportunities for the two days in Gharagab and Grootkolk.
10 June 2013 - Grootkolk - The same as above.
11 June 2013 - Nossob - No problem
12 June 2013 - Twee Rivieren - No problem.
I would really appreciate any information, comments, opinion on that...
