With the permission of Arks, I will add her pictures here.

Urikaruus cabin #4 at the far end of the camp, away from the tourism assistant's quarters, and very private.

Grootkolk

tents 1 & 2 (left) and communal kitchen, tents 3 & 4 (right)

tourism assistant's tent (left) and view of camp from approach road (right)

tents 3 & 4 (left) and view from west of tent 4 looking east towards tent 1

ImageImage
tents 2 & 1 (left) and tent 1 with its wonderful trees (right)

The Grootkolk tents are quite a bit smaller than those at KielieKrankie or even the Urikaruus cabins, but they are perfectly comfortable, if a small bit cramped. There isn't much storage/closet space as the cabinet in the bedroom is used for the crockery. The stoep is walled with concrete "sandbags" and includes both the braai and the sink and gas rings, as well as a table and two chairs. The gas-powered fridge is inside in the bedroom area. I found the sound of the fridge disturbing and Gert showed me both how to turn it off and how to re-light the pilot. The long-handled "braai lighter" I'd bought was very useful for this!

Mokala Pics

We stayed at Mosu Lodge in a self-catering bungalow SCB2S No. 7. We had a view of the waterhole from our patio. Sorry didn't take pics of our bungalow but here are a couple of the pool and conference centre at Mosu Lodge just to give you some idea.

For further comments about accommodation options at Mokala you may wish to refer to my Travel Tale - Red Dust and Diamonds.

With the permission of JO I will add a few video's. This video of the Kalahari Tented Camp (Tent number 12) - which is a two bed tent, The 4 bed tents are the same in lay-out ie the sleeping area and the kitchen, there are just 2 extra, lower beds in the room.
