Biyamiti do definitely offer microwaves in the accommodations and if I am not wrong Bateleur as well.

Maybe the one in which you stayed had not one because same way broken.

The semi luxury river view bungalows in Skukuza do also have one but only since this year :thumbs_up:

Hi guys and gals,

So my wife and I have been contemplating and going backwards and forwards and finally decided we want to visit Kruger again, and bring baby along.

Our pediatrition has informed us there is prophylaxis available for babies nowadays.

Our biggest problem is heating baby's food and sterilising bottles :wall:

So I've been wondering. Can I request a microwave for our Bungalow? Or do I just bring mine from home?

Have a great day!

Roeltru

At which camp are you staying Roeltru?

Satara had microwaves in certain bungalows during our last visit. 8)

I've wondered several times when the KNP is going to catch-up with other parks (e.g. KTP) and add microwaves to their kitchenette inventories (rather than just the ancient, one-heat-setting-and-only-one-plate-functioning two-plate stoves that currently graces the kitchenettes).

I think take your own. I'm contemplating doing the same next time I go! (Mind you, I'm already taking my own, properly functioning, relatively modern two-plate stove along whenever I book a bungalow without a kitchenette, so taking along the microwave and the kitchen sink :wink: is not that much worse :lol: )

Maybe you could phone Skukuza, and explain you need a microwave for baba, and if Skuks does have some units with them, they can allocate you one..............if Skuks does not have any, they will tell you, then you know to take your own. :thumbs_up:

Make sure you are very viligant with malaria prevention. :shock:

Hope you have a wonderful trip

More and more units seem to have these days.
We were at Croc Bridge in April and they now have microwaves.

As suggested I would call the camp before your trip to confirm if the unit you have booked has one.

Could one perhaps boil the kettle,
pour some boiling water in a saucepan or other container
and warm the bottle in the boiling hot water ....... same with sterilizing the bottles?? :hmz:
seems a simple solution :whistle:

Dear Roeltru

Please note that when you book a bungalow it is important that you specify what you will require.
We have different types of accommodation to cater for different customers.
In your case you should have indicated that your bungalow must have a microwave.
However, please liaise with Mr Gerson Sekwena; Tourism Manager responsible for Skukuza on 013 735 4388/076 988 3682 or email gerson.sekwena@sanparks.org so that he can make a temporary arrangement to get you a microwave.
I have already informed him to expect a call from you prior to your arrival.
