@ 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.
