Hello , thanks a lot for your answer. what is usually uneasy with the camp layouts , is that it's never written the kind of unit on the map. for example , I booked a 2 beds bungalow.. but don't know amongst which numbers I'll have to choose ... you mentionned units 1 to 16 in twee rivieren , but are they 2 beds units amongst those? maybe there are just familly cottages , etc... it would really be great if the camp maps would contain unit numbers AND unit types , as information , maybe... don't you agree? thanks a lot anyway
kind regards )

Twee Rivieren


Jannie, we can't see the unit types, so pucelou can't see which bungalows are 2 bed units. Do you know which numbers are 2 bed units?

Hi All

Have a look here

Select the camp and then explore the various a few months, this accommodation (like the rest of our accommodation) will have been potographed as well-it should tell you what you need to know about the units?

Eg look at this unit

Hi Pucelou & welcome to the forum.

If you are wanting a unit with a view of the park or next to the fence, forget it in 2R, but in Nossob most units are less than 50 metres from the fence and there is a stunning hide overlooking the waterhole.

You do not even need to go out of camp to see wildlife, but beware of the jackals in the camps, they are not dangerous or agressive at all, but will take any food off a table that is left unattended.

Enjoy it, I was in both camps in September.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".

Does anybody know where FCH6 is on the Mata-Mata map?

Hi Bekke
If you have been to Mata Mata before then you will understand my directions
As you enter the camping area, you drive down a slight incline, the FCH6 cottages are to your immediate left. Freestanding cottages. Immediately after those are the CH2's that are in a row alongside one another.
Hope this helps and makes sense to you

We are planning a visit for July 2011. Our group is made up of 6 adults and 1 child. We would need 3 chalets (1x 3 people; 2 x 2 people). I am trying to get a sense of which options would be better for us at Nossob. We would prefer to be grouped together. I have looked at the camp map, but am struggling to work out where the various types of accommodation are situated.

Any advice would be useful.

Hi cheetahlady and welcome to the forum.
Have a look at the guest house in is great for a group of people. If you take both sides of the house it sleeps 8 people..a bit more expensive but it is great for a group. It is situated up on the hill..away from the rest of the camp so you do not have to whisper the entire duration of your stay. The one downside is that it is a bit of a walk to the hide...but it is really lovely staying up on that hill......
