Coffee pots (the plunger type) are available at some of the park shops as is very good ground coffee! Well worth getting if you like a good morning coffee - that is what we did earlier this month and it worked very well.

Biyamiti do definitely offer microwaves in the accommodations and if I am not wrong Bateleur as well.

Maybe the one in which you stayed had not one because same way broken.

The semi luxury river view bungalows in Skukuza do also have one but only since this year :thumbs_up:

Dear Roeltru

Please note that when you book a bungalow it is important that you specify what you will require.
We have different types of accommodation to cater for different customers.
In your case you should have indicated that your bungalow must have a microwave.
However, please liaise with Mr Gerson Sekwena; Tourism Manager responsible for Skukuza on 013 735 4388/076 988 3682 or email gerson.sekwena@sanparks.org so that he can make a temporary arrangement to get you a microwave.
I have already informed him to expect a call from you prior to your arrival.

In bungalos what kind of coffee makers do they have? We need to know what size filters to bring. Thanks.

Warm welcome to the forum anitalois!
There are no actual coffee makers in the bungalows.
The bungalows with kitchens will have a kettle for boiling water in.
You can either buy a plunger type coffee maker or use a good instant coffee of which there are many varieties available in the supermarkets.

Hi anitalois, welcome to the forum!

On our last trip to KNP we ended up taking a supply of the Starbucks instant coffee tubes and that worked well ...far better than instant crystal coffee that we made due with on our trip prior. I've thought about buying and bringing a travel coffee maker...haven't decided on that yet. 8)

Hi anitalois and Welcome!

I travel with a large thermal mug and a Melitta filter cone (#2 filter size). It does take up a bit of space (tho I pack things inside the mug and the filter cone), but I can't stand instant coffee. The mug serves as pot and then can also double as a travel mug in the car :)

Of course if you do get stuck with instant it can always be made drinkable with a dash of Amaroula :wink:

Even better if you leave the instant coffee (yukkie stuff) out :lol:

I use little one cup coffee filter bags, thermos flask and a thermal mug.
Treat myself to coffee and biscuits near a dam or so at 10:00.
Delicious

Don't worry the proportion is gradually heading that way!

Mm I didn't know you could even get one cup bags. Here in Aus it's all about 'pods'.
