Re: Double Beds??

Unread postby Sky » Sun Sep 30, 2012 7:20 pm

Hi Meleah
The 3 bed bungalows in Berg-en Dal have beds that are build into the walls
The larger units have a room with a double bed and a room with 2 single beds and a lounge with 2 beds.
Have never used mosquito nets .
We use repellents as well as repellent arm bands or stickers that we stick on our clothes.
In summer we always sleep with the Aircon or fan running the whole night.
I also can not remember if it is at all possible to attach a net

Honeymoon In The Kruger

Unread postby rufie » Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:43 pm

Hallo There Forumites!!

I will be getting married on the 9th of March and would like to have my Honeymoon in the Kruger Park.

I would like your help on deciding what to do and where to stay but because of all the expenses I am a little (a lot) stressed.

I where in the park in December and we camped at Shingwedzi for 5 nights, then stayed 1 night in an Safari tent and then 1 night in Satara in an bungalow ,but the bungalow is expensive and because this is a Honeymoon I will not like to stay in an tent.

I would please like advice?

Thanks

There are huts in Pretoriuskop, Shingwedzi and Lower Sabie at good value if you can get them.

Seriously,

Save a bit beforehand and splash out in bungalows and eat at the restaurants.
Ask for cash or 'sponsorship' for wedding presents.

Otherwise the huts/bungalows for 3 at Letaba would be your best bet. THey are situated along the river frontage near the restaurant. You would have to use the communal ablutions, though, but this type of unit is usually half the cost of units with their own ablutions.
There are similar units in Pkop, LS & Shing.

I agree with BB, splash out now, the money you have loses 50% of its value on signature. :tongue: :lol: :lol:

A bit extreme I know, but how else could I persuade her to let me come back to the place of my dreams! :dance:
