@ Foxy: I recommend #12. I've never tried #13 because the braai is behind the rondavel, which I definitely would not care for. I've only stayed in #12 and #9, but I think that 10 and 11 would also be excellent.


Thanks for the hint, arks :P

In fact I forgot about the braai of No. 13 which is the only disadvantage of that chalet as the view is breathtaking :wink:

This is my fave camp in Kruger and rightly so!

Congrats to the Camp! Also to Titus Nkuna, who is the superintendent at Balule, in the blue suit in the pic - Balule is part of Olifants Camp.

Olifants BD2U

Unread post by K-4S » Fri Sep 23, 2016 2:57 pm

Hi everyone

I just wanted to ask if anyone could tell me which are the two best BD2U units at Olifants that have the best view? I had a look on the best unit location topic but the number stated there is not a BD2U unit according to the camp map.

Thanks for the suggestions :whistle:

Have a look at the two listed in the Accommodation photos topic.
I have stayed in # 19 and found it very nice as it has a bush and a river view.

And a read from Here where the bungalows on the other side are also recommended. They will be the BD3U's
