Hi knorhaan,

The roads in the camp can become quite slippery after a good rain fall. :twisted: Hope you enjoy your stay at campsite no 3. We camped on that spot for the last two visits to Tsendze and experienced a good thunderstorm there early April 2011.

When its raining go down to Shipandani hide and watch the crocs fishing on the low water bridge. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

While you up there can you make notes of the water holes demolished this week in the Mopani area and give us some feedback when you back again.

HI everyone,

Just a reminder for anyone looking to see what the various sites at Tsendze are like. :D

Also more wonderful pics and descriptions in here of the camp, sites, pros and cons, info and advice.

You will most probably be spared from noisy neighbours at site # 3 as it is probably the most private and in great demand from Tsendze fans .
When I was last at Tsendze I observed several campsites with unattended off road caravans & trailers parked apparently as if ready to be hooked to the tow vehicle .

Always assume mosquitoes are a problem especially in the summer months. Take precautions against them.

Just got back from a wonderful stay at Tsendze Camp! Rodger was amazing as always and he told us about a nice male lion sighting north of Mopani camp and we had a great visual....thanks Rodger!! Campsite 3 is amazing and the camp is stunning! Can't wait for my next visit!

Thanks Rodger....this is Ben....stayed in campsite 3 over last weekend with the Range Rover Classic from Kenya!

Hi Elsa. Can you possibly recommend campsites in Tsendze for shade and privacy/silence (preferably along the fence with nobody else in sight) - we are going up in Dec for the first time so it's going to be hot and busy but would really like to pre-book a site that comes recommended... we are bush folk and don't do noise :)

I think number 3 is the most private - but then also the most likely to be booked already!

No 21 has got very nice shade. No's 27 and 28 are good for larger group (as well as 5 and 6)

thanks for that - we are only 4 so would prefer to be far far away from any large groups :)

Here's the link to the Tsendze campsite (with numbers) to give you an idea.
The nice thing about Tsendze is that it's got a lot of bush, so practically every site is private.
Alternatively, try to get hold of the camp attendant Rodger Hobyane (I think he's on the forum) and I'm sure he'll be happy to make a recommendation.

Hi AMT,
Try to contact Rodger, he is on the forum right here...... he is the most helpful person ever :dance:
He and Elina run the camp superbly and visit each site mornings and evenings
Most the sites do have shade at sometime during the day...
And don't worry about noise at Tsendze, Rodger wont allow it :naughty:

Hi Rodger, told you we will be visiting sometime!

Booked and confirmed: 9 to 17 March 2013!

Wish camp site has the bigger trees and would fit our 7x7m trailer and tent setup?

I see Meandering Mouse loves #26 and on the forum I saw #25 has nice big trees, what would you suggest?
