Hi robbie B83.
We had the pleasure of camping on site 26 last week and no scops owls! :cry: Rodger told us about them and that they usually there in the summer months but as you can see the hornbills welcomed us.

Image

Rodger and Elina it was an pleasure meeting the two of you and you both made our 3 nights at Tsendze very special. Tsendze is a gem and one the best places we've camped at!

Image

Image

We had some very special sightings but the cherry on the top was this leopard 3km's from Tsendze on the road to the Mooiplaas waterhole on our very last drive!

I would like to thank Rodger and Elina for their efforts at Tsendze. The ablutions and the camp are neat and clean and you always make us feel welcome there. :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up:

Another thing...I don't blame you for the bicycle incident. It's up to management to deal with this.

Here a photo of Rodger and Elina doing their rounds:

Thanks again Rodger and Elina for a job well done! :thumbs_up:

You can pre book a camp site.
In July 2011 we camped on number 26, it was close to the ablutions and right at the fence as well,
next year 2012 we have pre booked site number 27,
besides Balule it is one of our favourite camps in the park.
We fell in love with Tsendze the minute we drove through the gates :gflower: :k

Gmlsmit, stands 27 & 28 are excellent for sharing..it's a huge area and right next to the fence.
Stand 27 has a tap right next to the road and the ablution and kitchen are not far.
You WILL have a great time there.
I have booked stand 26 for our trip in July 2012 and I think tent dweller and family will be staying at stand 27 the same time! :thumbs_up:

Hello fellow Bush-lovers,

Hubster and I have booked at Tzendze for May and we are counting down the days!!! We will be renting a 4x4 trailer for the stay which is EXTREMELY exciting for the 2 of us! :dance:

As all of you seem to be the experts on the camp, can someone please comment on the following with regards to spot no 3:
1. Privacy
2. Shade
3. Proximity to fence
4. Distance from ablutions

I will sincerely appreciate your comments!

Hi Lizelle,

We stayed at number 3 in Dec 2009.
It is a private stand and it is close to ablutions, but it didn't have much shade when we where there, we more or less pitched our tent a bit in the bush to get some shade.
You are close to the fence.
I would rather suggest trying to get a different number if you are looking for shade!
Try to get hold of roger, he will be able to give you a good stand number that has great shade.
I think its 21-24 that has really got good shade, but I can be wrong...

This Elephant no more in the camp now, food for him is everywhere.


Thanks Rodger :thumbs_up:

We camped there when the ellie was coming into the camp. At night the rangers patrolled the fence.

Alto, I am not to sure about secluded but the people in the know say that number 26 is the best, it is along the fence, close to the ablutions.
we were on that site last year, this year we are going to be on number 31, also along the fence but further away from the ablutions,
in my opinion any site along the fence is good,
you should look under "accommodation photos" and there is a map of the camp.

Vleisvreter, you make a reservation as normal and then you call Mopani and book a specific site number. You won't regret camping at Tsendze

Hi Rodger,

If we talking about the same elie I got a pic for you. We spotted this elephant first time in 2009 if I am not wrong.

Looks like the same guy coming to say hello to you. :whistle: : :hello:

Hi people, I love to read the forum and enjoy all the great stories that you share.
We are regulars in Kruger but had a baby that is now 18 months.
So have not visited Kruger for last 2 years.

We are booked in Tsendze (first time in this camp) from 6 October to 9 October.
But I read on the forum that there can be snakes :shock: and other crawly things around.
What I want to know is the following: do you think that it is to dangerous to take a small child (21 Months) to such a rustic camp?
Or is mommy being paranoid?? :redface:
