We camped in Kruger from the 21st December 2016 until the 10th January 2017. We are regulars and visit our favourite park 3 or 4 times a year. Always fantastic and never disappointing. Our favourite is the quieter more Northern Camps. This trip we spent 3 nights in Tsendze in our Penta. Unfortunately we had some damage to our Penta. When driving along the road between camp sites the side of my Penta hit a cut off tree stump which is very close to the side of the road. It crumpled the trim and bent the door frame, rim and bent the axle. The damage is just over KR20. Rodger was very quick to assist and with a 10 pound hammer we managed to panel beat the rim into a usable shape. I have reported the incident to SANParks management and they undertook to remove the stump. The side of the tree stump is shiny from all the incidents.

Be careful when driving in the camping area with larger caravans.

It was such a pleasure to see Rodger and Elana again. They make Tsendze such a special camp, always friendly, helpful and the visits in the evenings are a highlight. True ambassadors for Tsendze, Kruger and SANParks.

Congrats on their 10th Tsendze Camp anniversary at the beginning of November 2016. We will be back.
