Hi Anja
We stayed at Satara on Sunday and Monday this week and had hut number G162. I had also requested 167 but it was already taken. Our unit was very close to the fence, but if you can get 161 (the one next to ours) it looked good from the point of view it was the last one in G huts and also had a nice shady tree so you could put your table and chairs out there in the evenings and it was very private and quiet.
Have a great time

Anja, 168 isn't bad either. It is not so close to the fence as 167 but a lot better than others. I'm not sure about 161. As far as i know 161 are right next to the guest house which block your view to the left. I would go for 168. Enjoy your trip

I know the D circle has the BD3E type bungalows which are the 3 sleepers with wire enclosed verandahs and also the GC6B's guest cottages.
I am not sure if there is a third type there.
We have just stayed in both the ones I mentioned.

IMO the BD2V which are the perimeter ones are worth the extra cost as one often has some great sightings along the fence. :D

Hi,,

Can anyone please advise if the BD3E bungalows are perimeter ones with good view?

We are going to stay in Satara for first time so are very much excited :)

They are not the ones by the fence, I don't think they have a view.

The E at the end of the accommodation code usually means the veranda has been enclosed. If you want a perimeter unit look for a U or V at the end.

NB - these are just generalisations, camps do differ so you need to check the description.

Hi All
Can anyone who has stayed in this type of unit recently advise if cutlery, crockery, pots, pans etc are provided in the kitchen?
Many thanks

As I said Glen, they are really very well equipped...........much better than the standard units.
The ones we have stayed in have also had full ovens and 4 hotplates, unlike most standard units that only have 2 hotplates and no oven!!

Also your own braai and lovely shaded stoeps.

When are you going? :thumbs_up:

Unless I'm mistaken a BD2N unit is in A circle. Number 14 and 15 are closest to the fence :D
Keep an eye out for the African Wild Cat that patrols around the area :D
I hope you enjoy it thebush :D

The highest numbers are furthest from reception. So less people!
Number 179 is right at the end at the corner of the two fences :thumbs_up:

I like 167. It is in the middle where the two "half circles" meet. The braai is right next to the fence and the rest of the bungalows are sort of behind you instead of next to you.

Sure there can be slight colour variations especially if seen at night in poor light.



Yes, we've seen AWC everynight we stayed in Satara last March.
