Hi,

I've booked a Rondawel (HKB2) at Glen Reenen.

What is in the kitchen?

Pots, pans, cutlery, plates, glasses, utensils?

Stove, microwave?

Many thanks

Nico

Hi Nicovdd, and a warm welcome to the forums!

Unfortunately I haven't stayed in one of the GG rondawels recently, but in every SANPark I have visited (a long list :lol: ), crockery, cutlery and pots are provided. The exception is some of the Kruger huts, but for those is an explicit statement that utensils are not supplied.

I would expect a fridge, and a two-plate stove as well. I would be surprised to see a microwave.

I usually take my own sharp knives and tin-opener. These are generally provided, but they often not that great.

Can any other forumite confirm?

Hi there,

I don't know about the Glen Reenen rondavels, but I just stayed in a 3 bed rondavel at Skukuza. It had a fridge, hotplate, knives, forks, spoons, glasses, cups, plates, kettle (not electric) and some cast iron pots. Would recommend taking a sharp knife & cutting board.

Hi HS,

We were there earlier this month, but did not stay at the campsite.

We drove past the campsite a few times. It looks lovely - loads of shade. And they looked like they were renovation the ablution facilities.

Only negative, is the road that runs thro the park, which is a through road, runs by the camping area. But I do not think this is a huge problem.

Have a read here too.

Hi all!

My husband and I are going to Golden Gate for 4 nights in mid-March. I haven't been there in many years... Does anyone know if there are kitchen facilities (like the afdakkies in Kruger with a stove, urn and sinks) at Glen Reenen?

Thanks!

A reply from Cassius Selala, Regional Communications Officer Northen Parks :

Our facilities in Golden Gate are fully equipped. They have all the kitchen facilities you made reference on.

Yay!! That's fantastic!

Still going to get a Cadac number 7, but I must admit that I prefer not to rough it too much!

Will be camping in Glen Reenen over Easter.
Are there communal fridge/freezer facilities at the camp?
Are the campsites well treed? (I'd like to hang up a hammock)

I don't know about the freezer, but setting up a hammock should be no problem.
