ACCOMMODATION PHOTO'S (Northern Parks)

Unread postby roaneric » Thu Apr 19, 2012 11:26 pm

Hello everyone

I thought it would be a good idea to start an 'accommodation photo's' thread in the Northern parks as well. It's been a huge success in the Kruger national park section and there are so many people who would like to see the photo's of forumites who visited the parks.

If you have any pictures of your bungalow or especially the view from your bungalow, please feel free to add your pictures here. Will you then please state:

* The park/camp
* The type of accommodation (for instance BD3)
* and then the bungalow/tent number



(If you wish to create collages, it will be appreciated. It brings the number of photo's per page to a minimum. It's not an obligation, just a suggestion. If you do not know how to make a collage, you are welcome to PM 'Lion queen'. She can help with it. Here is an example of her collages.)


You can find maps of the different camps here below.

Hi everyone

"Meandering Mouse" asked me to add her post of Leokwe here on the accommodation thread. ENJOY :dance:


Meandering Mouse wrote:I have been twice to Leokwe, both times in a one bedroomed cottage capable of sleeping 4. The first time I stayed was with my elderly mother, so we were in a cottage suitable for the disabled. I think it was number 2. The second time I stayed, we stayed in cottage number 6.

I did walk through the camps looking to see if there were any cottages that had no view. As far as I could see, there was only one that seemed to look over another cottage. Sadly, I cannot remember exactly which number it was, but I think that it might have been number 4.

The lower number, number 1 and 2 have the least privacy. This is mainly due to its position close to the pool area. I would definately choose one of the highest numbers which are situated against the cliff area and the futhest away from the common area.

Having said that, Leokwe is a camp that invites solitude. The units are designed to take in the beauty.

The pool area. Lovely first thing in the morning.

The patio from unit 2.

The bedroom.

This was taken from the pool area. I was hoping that I would have a picture taking in the whole camp. Sadly not. The units I would recommend would be those nesstled against the "cliffs". They would be the higher numbers.
