Does anyone have any pictures of the " new " dam at Sirheni? I would be very interested to see how this latest move by Mother Nature has changed things. We are thinking of doing a trip mid - November and would also be interested to know if we should go for Shingwedzi or Sirheni? Generally any feedback from anyone who has visited this area recently would be interesting. :hmz:

Hi Leervis

We visited Sirheni in July and I added some new accommodation pics (and views) HERE
It did change a lot. When we visited Sirheni years ago, you looked upon lots of water from the birdhide, now it's more like a sandbank. But have a look at the pics.

We have just returned from 6 nights in the Park. The first 4 were at Sirheni and so I will post a short update on the camp. Paul welcomes visitors as would an enthusiastic host. The staff are diligent and keep the camp in perfect shape. With the dam destroyed by the floods last year, the water in front of the camp is subject to rains falling West of the camp. When we were there, cottage no.1, had a couple of pools in front of it. These will evaporate and the crocks will have to move down river. The cottages are great with new lovely mattresses and duvets. The communal freezer kept our food frozen hard and the fridges in the cottages were very efficient. Still our favorite Kruger camp.

Wildkyker, I love Sirheni :D

We were there at the beginning of September. Sadly the dam is no longer, the floods removed the wall. There were still some puddles of water around though. There might have been some rain since so there might be a little more water around. Be sure to walk along the boundary fence, there are some wonderful views along the way.

The staff are great and will be happy to show you the two white faced scops owls behind reception.

We heard lion every night and one was pretty close to the fence the one night.

It's a good place.

I will find a pic or two to post. :thumbs_up:

Hi widkyker

As promised... I am sure it will be a lot greener by the time you get there. Hope you have a wonderful time.

No. 11

I was in Unit no. 6 in August. There was very little water but quite a bit outside the hide near Unit No 1.

The elephants visited three out of the four days I was there. I saw Elephant chasing Buffalo and vice versa.

The Mphongolo loop nearby is fabulous but you needn’t leave Sirheni because the animals come and go throughout the day.

You will have an awesome time.

Thanx for the reply Rosemary and Mizzbee and the photos. I am looking forward
I surely hope there will be some rain between now and then.
