Sorry iedman, forgot to mention that the fax is to be sent direct to the camp you will be staying at.

Good luck

Hi Marge

All the BD3U's are good - but if I must choose between the mentioned, I shall say 21 or 23.

You will love the accom - from your bed you will be able to look on the river if you open the curtains :thumbs_up:

Enjoy :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hi to all..
I am going to stay in 7 camps in Kruger, and the most (five nights) in Lower Sabie camp. I am not sure about accessibility and distance to powerpoint at campsite units. Does every campsite unit have its own powerpoint? Is it the same in all camps? Are any cookers (even pots) available in kitchen at campsites? Thanks for answers in advance :)

Hi wilddog.prg
I am not a camper so will try and give advice but sure others who know more will add to it, and maybe even correct me! 8)
I would say if you book a campsite with power then it will have a convenient point.
There are hot plates to cook on but I don't think there will be pots and pans available, those you must take yourself.

Have a look Here

Also lots of great advice and info Camping

Just my small bit of advice

Yes the camps have powerpints BUT some are a little far to reach with just an ordinary extention cord You need a nice long one.( and a blue plug in some of the camps)
Buy an inexpensive cooking pot and just Have braais most of the time. There is usually boiling water in the kitchen area to make tea coffee etc.

Bucky - good morning :D

I do not know the FU5 unit(s), but have a look at ACCOMMODATION on the LS page, you will see some photos for this FU5 unit if you click on the code. From the description it looks as if there is only 1 bathroom. The FU4V units have 2 rooms, each with own bathroom - and stunning views.

The tents are just great. The other 'Mites will help out here, but from what I read previously, it seems as if the tents are in a process of refurbing - but I am not sure. If you get a LST2U, most of them have very good views. But do yourself a favour and go to the BOARD INDEX, CAMPS and ROADS KNP, Topic: Accommodation photos. On the first page you will find an index for all the camps and units with photos. This will help a lot. The tents have a wonderful bathroom and big shower. But keep in mind that there is only a fan and no aircon.

If I can make a recommendation :hmz: If your folks are not happy with staying in the tents, have a look if a FU4V unit is not available (look at AVAILABILITY on LS page). The views are as stunning as the tents, but maybe the accom will be more userfriendly for your folks. There are photos of this units too on the above-mentioned topic.

Hi bucky

Unfortunately I cant help you with the FU5 unit. Haven't been in those yet.

But the tents are fully equipped. They have a kitchen outside and a toilet with shower inside. We stayed in them in March. You can find pictures HERE

We stayed in NUMBER 20 Perfectly located, luxurious, nice and spacious. I would stay in one of those any time.

Enjoy your planning. :thumbs_up:

Hi all,
Thanks for the input.
I phoned the camp, and they say the FU5 has a bathroom per room, so we will try that out.

My choice, being a regular camper would have been the tents, but this is a special gift for the folks .

I will try do an update on this unit when I am back.

Hi ww29

We have stayed in the BD3U units and they are great. You have a nice view of the river. Number 3 - 22 are BD3U units, and from number 74 upwards are BD2U units. (the map still shows the old numbers) You can look for photo's and maps in the accommodation thread here There are lots of photo's of these units. :thumbs_up:

Good luck planing your trip

Hi All

Which of the LST2 Safari tents are the best in terms of location?
I know they are not on the perimeter, but unfortunately could not get any of the LST2U ones :(

Thanks! :)

Hi Stevengzn :D

Number 15. It is situated next to the perimeter on the left hand side, very close to the fence. It has a small view on the river between nr 16 and 17. According to me, a very wonderful location.

Have fun :think:

Hi Stvengzn

We stayed at LS in Aug/Sept this year. We also stayed in a safari tent. We noticed that the LST2 didn't have great view, because the bush around the fence was to thick you couldn't see a lot. But we also got told that the LST2U were filled. Once at LS more than half the tents were empty so we swapped tents and even got allocated a LST2UZ (which has good view over the river), so if you’re lucky you will get river view anyway. If you aren’t so lucky I would go for tents 10-15. They are right against the fence line. We did hear a hyena walk past the fence (tents 13 and 14) but couldn’t see it because of the thick bush issue. Maybe you will have more luck with sightings around the camp. Hope this was of any use.

Would help greatly if anybody maybe knows the exact content of these kitchenettes.

Hi Wikus, and a warm welcome to the forum! :D
Yes, there are pots/pans, plates, glasses, mugs, cutlery, other utensils for cooking, kettle, (there was a toaster as well when we were last there.)
So basically pretty much all you need for self catering/braaing.
One tip is to take along some proper steak knives as they generally only have ordinary table ones which are often not very sharp! :wink:

Accommodation pics

Enjoy!
