LOWER SABIE!
Managed to get a booking for a BD2U bungalow but 2 questions for you!
They were working on renovations during last year.
1:- Does anyone know if they are still busy and if so, near which number bungalows near the river?
2:- These are semi detached bungalows and a few are a bit more private and don't look directly into the neighbours deck. Anyone know which numbers they might be?
Many thanks,
Kite

Dear all :D ,
I`m new in this forum. I have visited Kruger several times since 1978 but never had been in Sirheni.
Originally I had booked Shingwedzi but had to swop because they closed Shingwedzi due to the floods for the whole year. It is such a pitty I love Shingwedzi, it is my favourite camp.

SIRHENI - I have a booking there in September for a Unit GC6. From the camp map I can see that the only Unit GC6 is the Bungalow No. 14.

Is there anyone who has ever stayed in Sirheni No. 14. I new from the Forums Sirheni-page that No. 15 must have a very good view.

My question : Does the Unit 14 in Sirheni has a good view onto the dam ??
Hope someone is able to help me.
Thanks, Brigitte

Dear Kite, I have been in Lower Sabie in Dezember 12. I stayed in the BD3U and did also walk along the BD2U units one of days I was there. There were no working going on anymore, except at the Keartland House which is next to the new family cottages 93 + 94. I would not take no. 92 because you will be disturbed by the aircondition of No. 93. Regarding my notebook No. 91 to 76 are good.
I can`t tell which might be the best. I did not take a closer look because I prefer BD3U as the kitchen is inside the bungalow.

I hope this will help,
Greetings, Brigitte

Thanks Brigitte,
I was lucky to get a booking at Lower Sabie so don't mind too much which kind of bungalow!
Sorry I can't help with Sirheni as have never been there.

LOWER SABIE
Which are your favorite BD2U bungalows?
Looking for ones with a bit of a gap between next 2 units or a nice tree over verandah etc
(Forgot to write down numbers of my favorites when last at the camp.)

Dear Caracal Queen :gflower: ,
many thanks.

Looks like you are also enjoying the North same as we do. The last time we have been there was mid to end of November 12. We had such excellent sightings. Elefants and buffalos in unbelievable numbers. But at that time it was very dry in the North and the animals had to use the left waterholes.

Greetings, have a wunderfull trip,
Brigitte

Hi there KNP-Junkee

Wonderful to introduce friends to the park, sure it will be just what they need! :thumbs_up:

If you have a look at the Map you will see all the units and I would say #105 or 63 could be good ones with river views.
I have never stayed on that side of camp myself so going purely on what the map shows.

Also have a read through the Olifants Topic
sure you will pick up some great info and advice in there.

Enjoy!
Where ever you go, go with all your Heart.

Hi KNP-Junkee


How exciting to show Kruger to the family. Unfortunately the BG2 units do not have a river view. But if you want one that does not have to many bungalows in front of them, I should go for numbers 80 and 81. They just have one row (perimeter) bungalows in front of them and they are pretty far away. You can see some pic I posted in the Accommodation photos thread

Hello Carol

We stayed in number 18 and it was wonderful. We didn't have the view of number 14 but our view was just as good. You can have a look at some pictures in the accommodation thread. You will enjoy it, I'm sure of it. Enjoy and tell us all about it when you come back :thumbs_up:
