Thank you for clearing that up, Stephen. (Especially as I seem to have the wrong code FU5, instead of FQ5, but you knew what I meant)! :)

Guests travelling to Lower Sabie today are informed about the temporary closure of filling station at the camp. Guests are advised to use the filling stations at the nearest camps like Crocodile Bridge and Skukuza.

Notice a few days in advance, if possible, would be more helpful, and reach more visitors, as there is little reception once on the road!

Thanks Kite

We would try that. Please note that not everything give us a warning in advance. There are things that are beyond our control.

We have spent one New Year's Eve in Kruger....years ago....camping at Satara.
There was a special (later than normal) night drive - great with distant lightning and a leopard sighting amongst others.
Back at our tent we could hear the staff having a good party until way past midnight (drums and singing).
The family that camped next to us had allowed their high school children to consume alcohol. It resulted in our morning alarm being a young lady spewing very close to our tent.
So, it was a mixed bag for us.

Sadly we also noticed that there appears to be no maintenance done unless a person reports them.

We were in a FA6 unit in Berg en Dal and had 6 things wrong. Admittedly these were attended to immediately, but one should not have to go to reception with any complaints.

As you mentioned these units do not come cheap!

I am sure you will have a wonderful time in LS, even being 'in the middle' :D but do hope you get a corner/end unit, Tent Dweller :thumbs_up:

Hi.

I managed to book 2 x safari tents for three nights next yea from 2 -5 june 2014. The river views arent available anymore. I believe the river views are the best. Has any one stayed in the non river views? Are they also nice?

Hi Nimrod,

I have stayed in a non river view tent on the perimeter. It was interesting to hear the animals pass the fence on the way for a drink at Sunset dam. There is a well worn path.

I have also looked at the tents more to the center and if there was no other accommodation available, I would not hesitate to take one.

One of the reasons why I love the tented area is because it is separate from the main camp. There is much more of a sense of isolation. There is also a lovely little boardwalk between the tented area and the main buildings. This is a path that is alive with birds. It also offers lovely opportunities to walk close to the river.

The trees in this area attract a multitude of birds, so no matter where you are, there is always something to enjoy.

Would I take the opportunity :hmz: In a heartbeat :thumbs_up:
