Coxell, have you had a look at some pics of those units Here

They are essentially the units that have the veranda's enclosed with a wire mesh, which does give one some protection from the monkeys, Honey Badgers, mozzies etc invading your unit and are found in the D circle Map

Thanks Elsa, Was wondering if I should change to a BD3B, but after your comments will have another re-think.

I am sure I am stating the obvious - while it is good to be able to not have to worry about one's food items, it probably cuts off the 'outside' experience a bit ... one can still still outside and braai etc obviously.

We are booked into a BD3B for 3 nights in March 2017. Looking at the map they seem to be in circle B. Any recommendations for a good on? 26 - 35 maybe? We stayed for 1 night only last year on our way up north, I think it was a BD2 and it was definitely in need of some TLC.
Question (Not too seriously meant): Why do we always get lost in Satara? We usually end up at the fillin station instead of the restautant/shop .

Watershed, have a look through some of the photos of the BD3B's and you might be able to get some ideas. :thumbs_up:

We have stayed in the BD3B's for the past 3 visits. We have stayed in the side near the camping (#40 I think) and the opposite side (#26, #28). All the BD3B's have been upgraded and have a lovely patio area. The side near the camping is convenient for the laundry but can be noisy if the camp sites are full. We did not have an issue. The other side is closer to the shops. Have a look at the map and see what you would prefer. None of them have a "view".

Thank you, Elsa, that did help.
Thank you, cheetahlady, I'll try and request the side opposite the camping. Keeping my fingers crossed.
