Marakele: Bontle-New tents

Unread post by kellyee21 » Wed Jan 13, 2016 9:30 am

Hello,

Has anyone had the occasion yet to try out the tents at Bontle? We may stay there soon and I was wondering if there is any specific tent that is good to request that may have a nice view? Thanks in advance.

Hi Kellyee21
I was at Marakele a few months ago , I did not stay in the tents as I am a caravanner, I did take a walk over to see the new tents. There is plenty of space between the tents which makes each tent very private , they all look directly into the bush. A short walk from the tents is the camping ground overlooking a very active water hole.

Here is a couple of photos of the tents for you ( I could not get inside for a photograph)

Hope you have a wonderful time , a super place to rest and relax
Isn't it just amazing how potatoes give us fries and vodka? :D The rest of the vegetables should get their act together :rtm:

Thank you so much, they look really nice and private as well. I have camped in Bontle just in front of the waterhole and it is fantastic but we wanted to try the tents this time. I will be sure to report back, thanks again for all the great photos!

Are there any predators in this area?
