Yesterday some new "Lux Safari Tents" appeared in the Lower Sabie Accommodations List (1x River, 5x Bush).
Is my assumption right that those are the newly renovated Safari Tents (I believe #22, former LST2UZ is one of those)?

Any news on that? I'm not sure what exactly to think of this. 50% vs the former LST2U is quite an increase...

And DSTV in a Safari Bush Tent in Lower Sabie?? Come one, please don't do that. What's wrong with you?

Does DSTV cover Supersport channels 1-19? :whistle:

I don't mind if someone watches TV in a brick house, but I wouldn't want one as a neighbour in a tent.

Where are the new tents located?

Following the posting of my Lower Sabie Sunrise video clip (which by the way I am glad that some enjoyed it as much as we did 8) ), herewith
a clip of a saddle billed stork that, with the low water levels in the Sabie river, entertained us for long periods with it's hunting skills.

Also taken from the stoep of our Safari Tent at Lower Sabie.

Hi

Which tents are the new "Lux Safari Tents", especially the Bush View ones?

We have booked two of these and would like to request two next to each other, but have no idea which numbers to ask for?

Thanks

Dear Rooikat

The new tents are called Luxury Safari Tents. 5 of these Tents have the bush view and 1 has a river view; you can request anyone of them between numbers (1 - 5). The river view one is labelled number 0.

Thanks Lesley.

Are these tents not shown on the camp map or are they old ones with new numbers?

Dear Rooikat

I believe they do not show on the Map, we are in the process of redesigning camp maps, they will be on the new camp maps.

Getting into a bungalow in LS is like trying to get into Fort Knox but perservance sometimes pays out. I kept looking every day and then suddenly there were availabilities for the days I needed. So we are now booked into a BD2U from 14. - 17. 03.17.
Am I right in thinking that these bungalows are semi detached? If so, does any one have a recommendation for a good one? Maybe 75 - 80? Whatever, we can just walk across the grass and maybe see some ellies coming down to the river. Perhaps we can change to a BD3U later. I'll keep an eye out.
