Dear forumites,
My family of 4 (3 adults, 1 teenager) is currently planning another trip to KNP in August 2015 (been there in 1995, 2002 and 2011). We want to spend 8 nights in the park - 3 in Skukuza, 3 in Letaba and 2 in Lower Sabie. We've got a couple of questions and would really appreciate the opinion and suggestions of experienced forumites. Here we go:

- We plan to stay in 4-bed safari tents in Skukuza and Letaba but are not really sure about Lower Sabie. In 2011 we had 2 safari tents, which we really enjoyed although we couldn't get the river view ones. We've heard that the tents are not in a very good condition right now, so we're wondering if we should try to get one of the river view family units, although there seem to be only two of them so our chances are pretty slim anyway ... What do you think?

- If we understand the rules correctly, bookings for August 2015 should open on September 1. Is this true for all booking methods, i.e. online as well as e-mail/phone? And what booking method would you recommend - online or should I call at 7.30 on September 1 (quite expensive from Germany ...) or send an e-mail? In 2011 we sent an e-mail on the second day of the month in which bookings opened and did not get our first choice accommodation, so I really want to make sure we get in touch with reservations earlier this time.

- We've never done any activities in the more northern parts of the park, so what is your opinion on morning walks and sunset drives from Letaba? We thought that Olifants river might provide a great setting for interesting drives/walks ... Any experiences? Our sunset drive from LS wasn't really great, we did enjoy the morning walk from Skukuza, though.

Thank you so much in advance for your help :clap:
