This thread and various trip reports have inspired me to secure 4 nights over Xmas :dance:
Now which site would you recommend for an "Older" woman all on her own (I love fences and might prefer to be closer to the ablutions at night) :redface:
PS I have not pitched a tent in ten years :lol: so guess who will have some practice runs :redface:

I am a free spirit...Either admire me from the ground. Or fly with me...But don't ever try to cage me.

Nkulu, as an older, 69, person who has not camped for around 20 years, I also did the practice thing. It is a good idea! Tsendze is a marvelous camp and the two people who look after it, Rodger and Elina do a wonderful job. Most sites have a fence close but if you look at the Google view map earlier on this thread it might help you. You can book a site by emailing Mopani camp. I had 26 which was great, and it looked like 27, 28, 29 and 30 were all on the fence. Enjoy your visit!

Hi there Rodger! How are you?

And how is my favourite camp in KNP - had any rain yet?

Wishing you and your family as well as Elinah and her family a wonderful Festive Season!

Camping at Tsendze again is definitely on my wishlist for 2015! :D
