Alf,

They are brand new and the map hasn't been updated yet. They are at the opposite end from the restaurant, next to the Keartland guest house. They are renovated BG2U units.

Alf, just returned from lower sabie yesterday.

There are two of the 4 bed units, numbers 93 and 94, right next to the guesthouse. They upgraded 4 of the old bg2u bungalows to the new two bed units, very very nice view, small lapa area, nice kitchen, microwave etc ( will ad photos to accomodation thread)
They are currently renovating units 92, 91, 90, 89 ( right next door) to new bd2u units, the only old bg2u units left that side are 85, 86, 87, which they will apperently renovate later.

Hope it help.

wbevents, thanks for the info on the FU4V family cottages. Are they suitable for two couples? Do the cottages have two seperate bedrooms and bathrooms?

We stayed at a BD3U unit last year and I wonder if two BD3U's (for 4 persons) are more spacious then the FUV4 cottage?

Perfect for two couples, much more space than the bd3u's,yes seperate on-suite rooms, i did post some pictures in the accomodation thread.Only draw back are the construction taking place next door, but if you are going out early and come back late it's not a problem, they are obviously behind on schedule as they were working on sunday and on the public holiday !

Hi All
Does anyone have a view on which are the best LST2U safari tents insofar as location is concerned. We have reserved two for next year and would like adjacent sites. From the map it would appear that 16 and 17 are good?

Hi John,
Have you seen the view from number 27 ?
We were in #19 recently and although we loved it there :D , I think #20 had a slightly better view.
I actually think them all to be great !

Hi Kirsty & Rooikat

As far as I understand an LST2 tent is a tent not suitable for disabled people and without river view. Nr. 15 is one of the best if you booked this since it is at the fence on the western side of camp.

LST2Z are units without river view and suitable for disabled people. I'm not sure about the bust unit for this type

Only the units where there is a "U" in the code have river view. So LST2U will have river view but not suitable for the disabled. Nr. 27 is a very good option.

LST2ZU are suitable for the disabled and have river view. Here the best option is definitely nr. 21. If you can't get 21, 22 is also not bad. But it depends on the code / type of unit you booked.

SO if there is a "Z" in the code it is suitable for the disabled and a "U" is for river view.

We stayed in nr. 21 last Thursday and it was great. We wanted to have 27, but since we booked the last tent available it was an LST2UZ so there is only 3 or 4 units with this code and 21 was one of them. Under Lower Sabie's "Camp Home" site you can view a map of the camp. Sorry don't know how to create a link. (avialability, kruger national park, lower sabie, camp home, on the right side of screen map

Game viewing was excellent. We had 7 different lion sightings on the H4-1 in the 3 days and 2 on the H4-2. The H4-1 was by far the best road to drive. Sure it's because it's very dry currently and the Sabie river is one of very view water suppliers now.

Enjoy.

Hi Pamelajane

The BD2U's have all the same view on the river - and a fantastic view too :D. We have stayed in a BD3U a month ago, in nr 20. I think that the BD2U's start at approximately nr 23 or 25. If I remember correctly, the BD3U's come first and further down, eastwards, the BD2U's. :hmz: I am not 100% sure. Phone reception and the friendly people there will confirm the numbers of the BD2U's.

The BD3U's and the BD2U's are great accommodation - enjoy :thumbs_up:

I have not seen any complaints about tent number 29, NicoleCT.


Please see Carolv's post :
Quote:
Our tent (number 29) had a lovely view across the river and we opted to settle down on the verandah with a cold beer rather than going back out again in the car. We had lots of birds around us and particularly enjoyed the company of a Heuglins Robin and its youngster.
:D

Hi NicoleCT,


I booked 28 & 29 during my visit last year. SO and I stayed in 29 and it was perfect! No noise, lights etc from the restaurant area whatsoever. Only problem was a mouse gnawing away at something in our bathroom during the night.... :evil:

It's close to the fence, reeds and water's edge and offers great views over the river. We followed a civet along the fence with our torches the one night, when it suddenly darted away. Scared off by a hyena! Was amazing! :big_eyes:

You have nothing to worry about! :thumbs_up:
