Who does the dishes?

Unread post by MSI » Wed Jun 03, 2015 6:54 pm

I have looked for the answer to this questions in several places and can't find it.

I'll be staying at Lower Sabie, Olifants and possibly Mopani in November. The rooms I am requesting have braai and private kitchens. My question is am I supposed to do the dishes or does housekeeping (if there is daily housekeeping?) do them? No big deal either way, just couldn't find any answers to who is the dishwasher. :hmz:

Hi MSI,

Dishes are your own responsibility.

Housekeeping make the beds in the morning and bring clean towels.

Enjoy your stay! :thumbs_up:

Hi MSI

The dishes are your responsibility as housekeeping will not have time to do all the dishes for all the huts, in addition to their other tasks.

It is also not a good idea to leave dirty dishes outside ( most kitchens are outside) as this attracts animals, large and small.

As Albert has said bedding, Bath towels and soap will be supplied.
You need to bring your own toiletries. :thumbs_up:
Also your own towels if you intend to use the swimming pools.

I have a very stupid question but i need to know. We are going to Berg and Dal camp this weekend with friends for a camping adventure. With regards to entrance fee's which i am responsible for, do we pay R66 per day per person ? So sleeping for 2 nights would be R660 just as an entrance fee for 5 people, or do we only pay the entrance fee once per person ?

Thanks


Hi Jacques,

A warm welcome to the SANParks forum!

You will have to pay R66 per day per person and R33 per day for a child. I usually go for longer, so it doesnt make sense to pay the daily conservation fee, I rather purchase a wildcard which I can use for all Sanparks, and if you have a wildcard, you don't have to pay the daily conservation fee.

Conservation fees do play a role in the maintenance and upkeep of infrastructure within the park. :thumbs_up:

There is a PDF file you can have a look at that explains it somewhat. Here

Quick query - wonder whether anyone can help?

I have a booking sorted for several days in the park for my wife and me. My parents are due to join us for another few days (hoping they can drive into the park to meet us at Olifants). Do I need to have two separate bookings, one for 2 people and one for 4, or can I deal with it all within one booking?

As always, thanks so much for the advice.

Thanks Elsa as always - much appreciated! Just to clarify in case anyone else wants to know the outcome.. One can have people arriving at different time on the same booking providing that they also have a copy of the reservation.

Hi mites, can anyone confirm the sizes of the fridges in huts at Lower Sabie?
I am wondering if EH5 has a bigger fridge than EH3 or are they all under-counter, bar fridges?
I know EH2 is a 2 sleeper, but does it seem particularly small inside? And what about its fridge?
Thanks to all !

I don't know specifically about the EH units, but everywhere we have been in Kruger, the fridges are quite tall with plenty of fridge space and enough freezer space above. We have never had an under-counter bar fridge.

Hi Kite, Hippotragus is correct. The fridges in the huts are a little old, unless it has changed. The good thing about older fridges is that they do take a lot of food. Even the one bedded hut has quite a large fridge.

The freezer section is a bit on the small size. I usually try to keep my perishables to a minimum in Kruger.

Hello Mites, I have booked a BD3E unit at Satara for 3 days in May next Year. Have these units been renovated? Are they good units to stay in or should I rather change my booking to a BD3B

The BD3E are the ones with the enclosed verandas and I 'm not sure if they have been renovated as its an ongoing procedure but I do know the ones ending with a B have been.
