Late into the fray, as we were there in April, but some feedback on Punda.
PM really is a charming little camp, with the bungalows grouped together on terraces.
In the old days, each 'block' housed four two-bed huts, and everyone used the communal bathrooms, with only a basin in the rooms.
From what I can make out, the blocks have been redesigned to offer two-bed and three-bed bungalows, all with a super kitchenette and bathroom, and modern air conditioning.
My dad has old cine movies of Punda, taken when he was a nipper in the early fifties, complete with DKW two-stroke motor vehicle.
Although significantly changed since then, it is possible to place the buildings back then, to now.
As mentioned elsewhere, the camp ground has ridges criss-crossing it, which would allow water to collect in the hollows... beware!
Unlike most other camps, i.e. with loads of space around the bungalows, the terraces don't provide much freedom for kids to let off steam, so try not to book a long stay there if you have little ones.
What we found annoying, was the lack of braai places at the bungalows, on account of the lack of space on the terraces, and one either has to head down to the day visitors' area, or crack out the gas.
After dark, the staff come around and light the paraffin lamps, and it is almost Christmassy in effect, to stand down on the road, looking up at the accommodation!
There is an active troop of vervets in camp, so be careful about leaving perishables outdoors, or leaving the door open.
Provided you don't feed or encourage them, it is quite amusing to watch them traverse the area through the trees, or along the railings!
From Punda, a day trip to Pafuri and Crook's Corner is a doddle.
Best to book two nights at Punda, instead of having to rush to the far north, and then south again to Shing.
We didn't see a lot of game, but the birding was wonderful, with some species that just don't occur south of the Tropic.
The Golden Orb spiders are also amazing.
For any Kruger nutter, a stay in Punda has to be on your bucket list.
Last trip: Satara 1/10/11, Letaba 2-5/10/11
