Hi all you experts, I need some advice.

Would you suggest we go for 1 night Nossob, 2 nights Grootkolk, 1 night Nossob

Or

1 night Nossob, 1 night Grootkolk and then 2 nights Nossob?

If we can make the reservation we prefer 1 night Nossob - 2 nights Grootkolk - 1 night Nossob
So we can do the game drive mode to and from Grootkolk and stay one full day at Grootkolk.
Depending on the activity at the waterhole we make a trip to Unions End from Grootkolk.

I agree with Jonkers - 1 night Nossob, 2 nights Grootkolk, 1 night Nossob. A lot will depend on what booking you manage to get - Grootkolk is extremely popular and often gets fully-booked as soon as the bookings open 11 months in advance.

With a full day at Grootkolk, you will be able to explore the area up to Union's End.

Another thought - maybe try to get a night at Urikaruus - so you can experience the Auob River area - very different to the Nossob River side.

Thank you for your inputs. We visit Urikaruus before and KTC after this Nossob-GK sequence.

We can't wait to drive through the gates of KTP in a few weeks time.

I would agree with the comments above. Leave Nossob early the morning and then make a nice brunch at Union's End picnic site before venturing up towards Union's End itself. By the time you get to Grootkolk it should be around 14:00 which will be a perfect time to check in. SO yes 1 night Nossob, 2 nights Grootkolk and 1 night Nossob again.

Enjoy your stay :) :dance:
