Thanks for the feedback Leervis. I always try and get a couple of days at Balule while in the park. It is one of my favourite camps - for camping or rondavels - and I agree with Hugh, I would'nt miss a trip to Balule, bridge or no bridge. And I am very happy to hear that the work been done on the bridge isn't causing any disruptions and too much noise and that the hyena clan are still around. We are leaving on Friday morning, 24th, and will be spending 1 night P/Kop, 4 nights Balule, 4 nights Satara, and a last night in P/Kop. Extremely long drive from P/Kop to Balule, but it's an amazing drive and certainly not a problem!

Dave, as you can see, we are driving from P/Kop to Balule, so I don't see a problem with you driving from Croc Bridge. It is a long drive, but you can leave the camp really early in December (4.30am I think) and if you stop for a stretch and snack every once in a while, it really is enjoyable. The lack of the bridge will not detract in any way at all. Just some extra km's to drive to get to Olifants. Both the camping and self catering sections at Balule have deepfreeze facilities and although they don't exactly keep anything frozen, they do keep it cold. There is no electricity in the camp, so make sure you have torches, batteries etc. for your stay. This camp is the gem of the KNP and I am sure you, like the rest of us, will fall in love with it. I hope you enjoy your stay immensely. :)
