Hi Everybody :D

Just been lucky to get 3 nights at Kalahari Tented Camp, 31 Dec - 3 Jan :dance: :dance: in a FAMILY DESERT TENT (FDT4).

Last time that we stayed in this wonderful camp, we did not have a view on the waterhole. I would like to make a special request this time.

Any recommendations for a FDT4 with a view on the waterhole? It's summer and with the heat I shall probably be up all night - watching :big_eyes:

Thanks :thumbs_up: Leana

Hi Leanawel.
What ever you do try to avoid number 8.
It has a tree right in front of it that obscures the waterhole completely.
The waterhole is floodlit now so a view is definately a plus.

Numbers 7 and 9 have good views and are the closest to the waterhole.
I do not know whether they are FDT4 type tents.

Whichever one you get,it is a great camp overlooking the riverbed and also has amazing sunsets.
Enjoy your trip. :mrgreen:

:thumbs_up: Thanks Roaneric and Enrico

I am going to phone and ask whether 7 or 9 is a FDT4 type and try to get one of them.

I am really quite excited to end 2012 and begin 2013 in the Kalahari desert :dance: :dance:

Okay, not entirely accommodation, but it will give you an idea of what Twee Rivieren looks like.
This is what the bungalows on the right of the reception look like: Click.

Mind you, this is a panoramic photo, 900 KB, so a bit larger. You can click (once) on the photo to see it full-size, and scroll through it. It covers a bit more than 270 degrees.

Hi,
I am going in April and will spend 3 nights each in Nossob and KTC:
Question - can anyone recommend good unit number in Nossob for CH4 and KTC for DTZ2?
Many thanks in advance!

James-of all the accommodations i stayed in at KTP I liked the CH4 at Nossob the least
They are all in the front,some have the braiis and patio areas in the back but one has it on the side-offering no privacy at all
As far as the room went,it was big enough.What I didn't like was the fact that the main sleeping room had doors on each side separating it from the sleeping porch and the kitchen/bathroom area
I was there in March-even with the doors open between the rooms it was airless,esp bad at night when the electricity went off
Other times of year it might not be so bad
I liked the location of the CH3's myself,at the back side of the camp,very private

Here are some photo's of Haak en Steek camp in Mokala NP.
The unit sleeps 4. 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other has 2 single beds. Both have a bathroom en-suite (toilet, basin & shower). Fully equipped kitchen with fridge & cooker / oven. All gas and solar energy - NO electricity.
You have exclusive use of the unfenced camp. it has its own waterhole in front of the bungalow. There is a lapa / braai area.
There is also an adjoining camp site that has 6 stands and separate ablutions. The unit can only be reserved by one party at a time so exclusive use guaranteed.

View of the bungalow.
