Hi guys, new to the forum!

I have a question regarding toddlers in the park.

As far as I understand children between the ages of 0 - 2 enter the park for free and don't pay accommodation.

I have finally managed to book a Olifants BBD2V river view hut (whoop!). However it only sleeps two persons.

My wife and I will be coming with our 1 year old toddler. We will probably bring a camp cot for him but will we be allowed to occupy the two bed hut with the additional 1 year old?

Thanks!

Hi kab123,

Welcome to the forum, the answer is yes, you should be allowed.
We once stayed in Satara with 2 children under the age of 2, 22 months and 2 months, and had no hassle at all from any staff. Enjoy using the 2 bed units while you can, because once the kids grow up it does become significantly more expensive for family trips

Hi s2000ap.

You did not mention where you're going to stay in huts. If it is in Balule, the communual kitchen has a gasstove with 2 kettles, here you must just bring you own lighter or matches.

The es2 huts last time we stayed in Pretoriuskop did not have power points yet so here you can also get all the hot water you need at the commual kitchens.

Enjoy your stay.

Thanks Lepardfan and tent dweller, can't believe that I forgot about the water supply at the kitchens at Pretorius Kop, have camp there over the last two Years. Staying in an EB3 but doesn't really matter with the tap just down the road.

Hi all, we are looking to camp at Malelane satellite camp, do any of you have any feedback on the camping experience in terms of being on the boundary of the park? We wanted to go to Lower Sabie but this is completely booked out. Do you have any other suggestions for the southern part of the park if Malelane is not a good option?

Warm welcome to the forum MichaelS! :clap:
You can have a read through the Malelane Topic. Its a lovely little camp.
Another very nice camp is Crocodile Bridge
Also very popular but often can get camping spaces when L.S is full.

An excellent choice - Malelane is a lovely experience and the surrounding area has always been rich with sightings for us. ENJOY..

Hi guys, thanks for the warm welcomes! I had heard Malelane was nice but I was concerned about a tripadvisor review saying you heard the highway, trains and dogs from across the river. We have stayed at Berg n Dal before and enjoyed it but want something quieter, we just don't have the time to travel up to Balule. Thanks again for the advice!

We are always out driving in the Park during the day MichaelS so can't really say for that time, but in the evening we found it a lovely quiet camp. We found it good for bush babies at night as an added bonus. I am sure you will love it.
