You can maybe try and do a request a few weeks before your visit and ask for either #49 or 51 both have fantastic views, you might just be lucky if someone else has not yet requested them, maybe worth a shot.

All the camps are unique in their own right.

We will be in Mopani in 4 and a half weeks. Simply cannot wait.

Meeting up with other members of the Duke pack there it is sure to be a weekend of note! :D :D

Has anyone seen White-backed Night-Heron at Shipandane recently?

Hi there!

Trying to figure out whether to book BD4 or FB4 bungalow for 2 people, the BD4V are fully booked.
Which units are nicer in your opinion.

Thanks! :thumbs_up:

All the Bungaloes are cool at Mopani, especially for only 2 peeps, the major difference is river/damview, or not. :thumbs_up:

We stayed in a BD4V in January.

It's a wonderful chalet, the only "problem" was the afternoon sun on the patio and nowhere else to sit. Maybe the FB4 is then a better option???

Enjoy your stay........... :thumbs_up:

Clairey, from what I see I would say the FB4 looks a bit more spacious.

Going to Mopani over Christmas, I booked about a month back and there was ample accommodation available... Is this camp not popular over this time period?

I think Mopani camp and area is not everyone's cup of tea, so to speak and therefore it is not as fully booked as the other camps, but I love it there and the area.
We find it very productive and have had some awesome sightings over the years. :D

I have stayed there 3 times.
The bungalows are lovely and secluded,the river view ones are particularly nice
It is hit or miss but the Tropic of Capricorn loop has always been good
Last time saw lots of different kinds of antelope but no predators
The time before had a mating pair of lions-who were at it ALL the time :P
A spotted genet visited our bungalow and on an evening drive we saw a leopard kill a porcupine
Poor leopard, I bet he wished he had thought that one over :|

I like it because it isn't as crowded as the south.
Lots to be said about enjoying the birds and nature without keeping score

Mopani may not have the diversity and numbers of wildlife as it is the case in central and southern Kruger but the central/southern parts does not have the Mopani shrub veldt of the north and those quiet good things that come with it :D .

Got to say this was our favourite camp on our trip so much last year that we are hoping to book again this year.
Not just the dam view of the chalet but the staff where so friendly and welcoming to :D :D

Hi all. This is my first post as a forumite. Can anybody tell me if the sleeper couches in the cottages at Mopani are suitable for adults?

Hi there and a warm welcome to the forum! :clap:

I have not personally stayed in that cottage type but going on the photo I would say unless the adult was very heavy they should be fine.
Often they say in the description if it is not suitable for adults.

Hello Jasmine welcome to the forums. :thumbs_up:

As Elsa said, the photo looks like they should be fine, if the people using them are not too big.

Another option may be to book a BD4 unit (subject to aavailability).
We have stayed in those several times, and they have a bedroom with 2 single beds and another small one with the
two bunks, which are definitely big enough for a more substantial adult. :thumbs_up:
