I'm thinking of visiting Bontebok NP in early October :dance: I know that the chalets have fireplaces but I'm wondering whether firewood is supplied or must I find/bring my own, as with braai wood? If it's as chilly at Bontebok as it has been here in Darling, I will definitely be wanting a fire!

Hi Arks,

The chalets have fireplaces on the decks, but none indoors. Wood can be bought from the little shop there.

The nights can get chilly Arks, but when we were there in August, the days were hot and windless for a change.

Thanks much, Matthys and BB, for the helpful info. I'll be holding thumbs for warm days and relatively temperate nights -- or lots of blankets!! :lol:
