Thanks DB and Hippotragus.

We will be there for 2 nights and our first night we are hoping to have a dinner at Cattle Baron, so for one night we can take the trek. We have had the experience of the staff singing at Letaba in the past and it did not go on late, so it shouldn't be a problem.

The accommodation looks very spacious, so it will be interested to see. Apart from the usual, it has shower, aircon and utensils. Just have to use communal kitchen...not a problem.

Maybe we will be lucky and they would have changed the fridges. :pray:

I also do not mind having to walk around the camps a bit - which we do when camping having to use the ablutions and kitchens. I love going to collect boiling water in the morning and the chat about the day with other campers while washing dishes.

If you have a kettle and braai on your second night, you will not even need the kitchen much.

Tessa, it looks as though we are going to just miss each other. :hmz: I will be staying at Skuks for five nights over the end of December, beginning of Jan.

I love chatting with the other visitors in camp DB and also found standing round the braais at Punda a wonderful time to catch up on other peoples sightings for the day. Yes, the same goes for the communal kitchens.

What a shame MM, but we will be staying at Lower Sabie on the nights of 2nd/3rd and 4th Jan, so let us have a look see nearer the time and maybe our paths will cross somewhere along the way. :thumbs_up:

Hi Tessa, I have had a chat to all my girls and they are more than happy to stay an extra night at Skuks. It does mean that we could possibly meet at Tshokwane when you make your way to Lower Sabie.

With the extra night, we will be camping in Skukuza from the 28th, leaving the 3rd Jan.

Take care,
Wendy
