Freezers???

Unread post by jacquiandphil » Tue Jun 16, 2015 6:20 pm

As we are planning to buy meat in Uppington I need to know about availability of freezers.
Are there communal freezers for camps where units do not have freezers, like they have for the bushcamps in Kruger?
I can see that TR accommodation all have fridge/freezers as do those at KK, some at MM seem to have too.
We are lucky to be staying for 13 nights but I don't want to buy meat if we can not keep it frozen.
I need to know about Nossob and KTC.
Thanks in advance for your help.

KTC has fridge freezer, gas. I get my meat pre frozen from Pick and Pay in Upington and it lasted 12 days no problem. Have a great trip. Pen

All the chalets at Nossob and Mata-Mata have fridge/freezers :thumbs_up: .

Although the power is down during the night, you will have no problem keeping your meat freezed :D .

Hi jacquiandphil,

All chalets in wilderness camps and main camps have fridge/freezers.

Only at Mata Mata and Nossob the generator is turned off during the night, but even in high summer we've never had a problem keeping the meat frozen.

Enjoy your trip, may you be blessed with stunning sightings! :thumbs_up:

Thank you all.
Need to know basis only for the temperature now in KTP, my husband does not need to know!
With all the stuff we have to bring, thermos etc, we'll have very little room for warm clothes. We'll have to wear a lot on the plane.
Getting excited now.
