Sirheni and Shimuwini the best! Although the pool in Shimuwini may bug you? We found that the sound does not reach the unist because the pool is 'higher'.

The rest are too big for me .
To me Bataleur has lost some of its charm with the installation of TV and airconditioning , which I understand coincided with a presidential visit .

I've been to all five bushveld camps and I think I like Biyamiti, Shimuwini & Sirheni best. Talamati is nice, but didn't leave a lasting impression. Bateleur is very remote and quiet, but when we were there (December 2010) Silwervis was overgrown with reeds and Rooibosrand was mostly closed off. Armchair birding rules in Bateleur though.

i have also been to all 5 of them and sirheni stands out way above the rest for me. Talamati was the worst for me. the units seriously needs some paint inside especially the ceilings inside the bathroom which was black. very poor condition if you think this is the most expensive bushveld camp in knp. i will go back to sirheni over and over again.

We have only been to Biyamiti and Tamboti several times, and both of these camps are wonderful! We do, however, intend to visit some of the others in future, especially Bateleur and Sirheni. We are going to Letaba in February 2012, and intend to go these two camps to see what they look like for a possible booking in February 2013.
This makes me think back to when we booked and paid in full for February 2012 in March 2011. The person who made our booking asked us how do we know we will still be alive in a year's time, since we always book a year ahead :roll: . Our reply was, if we are not alive in a year's time, one of our two children will probably be alive to make use of it. If we are still alive, we are sure we have a booking :dance: . That's the only way that we get what we want, which, even a year ahead, is sometimes not possible.

We love Talamati and Bateleur but all the other bushveld camps are equally great. Very difficult to make a favorite choice for only one bushveld camp. I would love to do a “Bushveld Camp” only trip one day and visit all of them! Hilda we also prefer to make our booking long in advance, in any case none of us know whether we will be still in the land of the living in the next hour so it is immaterial to me whether you plan to go in the next hour or next year! :D
