I have booked for Letaba over Christmas. I am somewhat more disabled than when I was last on the forum and for the first time am booking disabled access accommodation. I am not yet (and hopefully will not be) in a wheelchair, but walking is slow and painful and I need a secure stick to maintain my balance especially on uneven ground and where there is no hand rail.

Can anyone tell me what the 2 person easy access tent is like in terms of getting in and out and proximity to the bathroom? I can see from the camp map that these tents are not tents with a view but that really is secondary to access at this stage.

Moira, did you have a look at some pics of the CCT2Z tents Here
I am sure someone will advise re the bathroom set up as well.

Moira why don't you change your booking to a 4 sleeper tent. If you book number 8, which is a disabled unit, the bathrooms are right behind the tent. You will also be right on the fence. I stayed in number 7 a few weeks ago and loved it.

Moira, I cannot advise you on a 2 sleeper but I know that tents number 4,5, 6,7,8 (all 4 sleepers) are very close to an ablution block and also on the fence.

8 has a ramp and the rest have steps, depending on yourself which would would be easier. The bathrooms as stated are just behind them where if I recall correctly the 2 bed are a little further from the bathrooms.

The Ablutions for the CTT2 tents did not appear to be set up for accesabilty - no grab rails anywhere and standard narrow toilet and shower cubicles. Unless the CTT2Z has its own bathroom?

P.S. Unless there is another ablution block I didn't see 2 weeks ago, number 20 would be furthest from the tents ablution block. You would probably do better then to drive to the camping ablutions which did at least have a toilet with grab rails etc.

Someone might be able to help you here, but I do know tent 6 - it has a super view onto the fence.

GinaMcAdam, We stayed in tent number 4 in December 2013. right on the fence and so is 5, 6 , 7 and 8. We had hyenas "visiting" every night, tame bushbuck grazing outside our tent every day/night, bird life is amazing in the very early morning and also just as the sun is starting to set. The ablutions/kitchen are a hop, skip and a jump away from the tents. We had such a good experience at Letaba that we are returning for Christmas 2014.
