Thanks roaneric, I was just scared that it didn't have a river view, you know how you start doubting yourself once you've booked :gflower:

It's view is great. Even the front view of the bush was fantastic, we saw lots of elephants and antelopes walking in the bushes. Never a dull moment. And although the river view was a bit to the left, it didn't bother us, we just turned the bench a bit so that we had a strait forward view :lol:

AND, there is a lovely mongoose family living right in front of number 18 :wink: Here is also a video of the view of number 18

Hi Carol

We haven't stayed in the BD2V units but if you look at this post, you will see which numbers are the closest. Hope it helps

Thanks roaneric and Elsa

Appreciate your input, we have secured units 62 and 63 :D at Olifants. In their opinion that is the two best located BG2's as it is close to the lookout deck. Hope it is not too noisy :?

Has anyone stayed in one of these units @ Olifants, pics would be super......

Thanks guys

Hi
Who knows what bungalow in the A circle at Satara is the best. I have booked a 13 but I'm not sure if 10 is better or maybe something else ?

It's a pleasure. I don't think you would have trouble with the noise. We stayed in number 1 last year, and you could see the people from our veranda, but we couldn't hear them.

I don't think it would make any difference. They are in the same circle and with almost the same view. But maybe someone who stayed in one of those bungalows can tell you more? Unfortunately I only have pictures of number 2 and you can also have a look at number 19

Enjoy your stay in Satara :mrgreen:

Hi Roaneric

Thanks. I have stayed in them before but can't remeber where.
I want to try and keep traffic / people noise to a minimum, but it's also nice to be on the fence side close to the waterhole.

Hi Sky

Then I would choose numbers 10-13. I think they are the nearest to the fence and also away from the trafic that you will find around numbers 1-6. Enjoy

We are eventually going to Kruger again!

Please help with the best units to ask for in these locations:

1.Lower Sabie - EH5 hut (I am expecting a terrible location here, but see that there are a few of these units available, so I guess the best our of the lot?).

2.Satara GC6BD guest cottage (also not sure that there is much choice with this?).

3. Skukuza CTT4 safari tent (again...not one with fence view etc.?).

4. Berg-en-Dal FA6 family cottage (if possible perimeter view or revamped unit).

Thank you in advance :-)
