Hi BerkiSA,
The bungalows with perimeter views at Satara are coded BDV2. We stayed in a BD2V bungalow at satara in March this year. There are 2 semi circles of bungalows. The first semi circle goes from number 161 to 167 and are between 5 and 25 metres from the fence with 161 and 167 the closest. The second semi circle goes from 167 to 179 with the 2 outer huts only 5 metres from the fence, whilst the ones in the middle are up to 50 metres back. Also this semi circle has numerous trees in it, so is a bit more shady . If I had a choice I'd go for 167.

Heres a photo showing numbers 161 and 162

and this one shows 167 and 166

At Mopani, I believe there are just 2 of the BD4 bungalows with views over Pioneer Dam, Nos 49 and 51. We stayed in 49 and it was fabulous, this is the view from the patio area

Hope this helps - have a great trip

Higgsie

In Lower Sabie, by far, the fixed tents overlooking the perimeter are the absolute best. And unit Mopani #101 also has a great view as you are braaing at night overlooking the waterway. In my opinion anything along the fence line is the best! But hey, you're in Kruger - it's all good.

Hi Enricfd Image Welcome to the forum :)

Lower sabie I would say bungalow number 18 or 20 is the best.

Skukuza I would try for number 191. We stayed in 192 and I think 191 is a bit better and close to the kitchen

Orpen I would say number 12. It's got a bit of a view of the waterhole. Number 11 and down does not have the best view, with the trees in front.

I've got some pictures of accommodations HERE

When can I e-mail sanparks to ask for a specific bungalow? Months, weeks or days before arrival?

Hi Safarimeisie

I emailed the specific camps about 2months ago and they reserved my requested bungalows/tents. They did say that I must confirm a week in advance and also that the getting this reserved unit is not guaranteed. Ill PM the contact details Dinkybird sent me.

Enjoy your trip. When are you off?

Hi all!
We've reserved a BD2M bungalow in Pretoriuskop for the end of January. I can't however, seem to find the code on the camp map? Does anybody have an idea where it is situated in the camp?

Hi
We had a BD2M at Pretoriuskop in September. They are ones close to the camping area. We stayed in # 15 but the one next door # 14 was much nicer and will definitely request that one next time. They are still shown as BG2 on the map but some of them have been upgraded into BD2M.
Hope this helps :dance:

Hi Mel
If you can get # 14 sure you will be more than happy.
Have a great time
