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.

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.

Hi,

I've got plans to visit Sirheni in early May this year and would just like to get an update from anyone that has been there recently:
- has there been much rainfall in the north this summer to date?
- how much water in the river outside camp?
- what is the condition of the bush in the area?
- any resident animals around camp I should be aware of?

Many thanks
DGK

Hi, all Shireni go'ers,

SO and I are contemplating spending 5 days over Christmas there
this year, And we have a question:

How big is the allocated compartment in the big freezers?

Can it take 10 days worth of meat, or will we need to leave the park to
re-stock on the way down to Satara?

Thanks in advance.


Each cottage is allotted a freezer storage basket and that was big enough for us for 8 days worth of meat, Graeme & Nicky.
Have a wonderful time at Sirheni :D . We just loved how well equipped the kitchen is and how well maintained our cottage.


Thank you very much for this information, It has definitely set our minds at ease.
Booking time approaches soon :dance: :dance:

hi there, we´ll, be visiting the camp in mid-may. they seem NOT to be offering bush walks anymore at the mo...what a great pity...any one know if this is just temporary? I´d also read (several times) on another well known Forum that people are suffering (last year april, may, june) very badly with mozzies and (worse) sandflies. they do tend to leave me alone, but attack my SO with a vengence. any comment, any tips? thx

Hi Judith,

We stayed there on saturday and didn't see any mozzies or sandflies. I must say the camp are well looked after but sadly without any water infront of the units the camp for me are not the same anymore. Patrick at reception told me sanparks has no plans of rebuilding the dam wall which for me will be the downfall of Sirheni.
