Hi Kingfisha

We haven't been to Marakele yet. The pictures I added was taken by my sister. And they cant remember what unit number it was unfortunately.

Maybe some of the mites who have been there recognize it and can help out?

You can see the Bushbuck on the right from Mads. We also saw 3 beautiful Kudus passing our stoep, but did not take photos

The Mocking Cliff Chat (Dassievoël)'s wife also visited later in the afternoon

hi Roaneric !

I am afraid these are more "view" photos than "accom" phots, but as the view is the main drawcard imho, i thought they were better than nothing :D

These are the 4 person sleepers huts facing the amphitheatre.
The only drawbacks were low water pressure in the shower (mid-winter) and a longish walk from car to hut.
Pretty minor really.
