I love camping, in my own tent and sleeping in my own bed :thumbs_up:
I love having only mozzie netting and some nylon separating me from the outside. When its hot, I leave the front and back door wide open, only zipping up the mozzie netting.

And those night sounds are nice and loud :D

Definately camping for us! Unfortunately when we go for a short weekend we stay in the bungalows, but much prefer campaing or caravaning.

Definitely camping! We bought a tent for the kids (6 & 13), and this past July they slept on their own. They were so exciting & totally adore that.

Camping is so great for us!!! We are getting on in life, so we bought a large tent so that we do not have to crawl around, we have a small fridge to store out meat and drinks, lots of different lights and lamps,blow up mattresses, I guess we have been doing it so long that it has become a way of life.

We try and camp near the fence, and its amazing what animals patrol the fence or come into the camping ground e.g.Hyena of course, Ratel, AWC,Civet and the Large Bushbaby who use the electric lines to travel on.. And in the day we had an experience with a Large Monitor Lizard who had found a cosy spot under our car in the shade. It took us about 15 minutes to get him out, and he ran to the next caravan and found another shady space there!!!!

During the day especially around Pretoriuskop there are so many different types of birds, a cuckoo landed on our side window and saw its reflection and started banging so hard at this other bird that he did not think it was him. The only down thing about camping is to move from one camp to the other. So we stay in a place for at least 4 days and then move on. It also helps if you want to change your camp booking the powers that be just notifies the camp that we want to go to that we are coming. It takes about half an hour to pack up and about 1 hour to set camp up again. But we don't mind :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: Mama Faru

After due consideration - the sweet dreams on the soft beds in the Kruger style rondavels/houses complete with aircon non-camping option.

Throughout all the years we have been going to Kruger we have always maintained that it would be great to camp there, but with the time constraints imposed by school holidays and the travel time to Kruger and back to the Cape this was never really an option.
We used to camp (a lot). But never in Kruger. Both the SO and I love camping, and with the kids now out of the house we are about to start camping again. We will be in Kruger in a caravan this year. Can't wait to get there!
So I am not really qualified to say which I prefer in Kruger; but I think I know what my opinion will be once I have camped in Kruger.... :hmz:
