Extra child in Bungalow for 2?

Unread post by Rainman » Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:09 pm


Has anyone stayed 2 adults + 1 child (age 11) in the BD2V at Satara or BBD2V at Olifants?

I emailed the duty manager and 1 replied saying I would need an extra mattress... but in case I can't get that, would they refuse check-in?

Anyone done this without an extra bed?

Hi Rainman,

There shouldn't be a problem for the camps to provide you an extra mattress to go on the floor in the room. I have found camps to be accommodating in this sort of situation. Are you in South Africa? Then phone the camp receptions and confirm. If you are overseas, perhaps e-mail requesting an extra mattress to be put in the room, and explain the situation. You obviously have to pay a fee for the extra person in the room, the fees are shown on the Tariff pages.

I'm sure this can be sorted out satisfactorily.

Enjoy your visit.

I think chirinda is quite right, but I hasten to add that the BD2V chalets at Satara are not very big and I am not sure if there is room for another mattress. As chirinda says, contact the camp direct and they can answer your questions. If the worst comes to the worst, you can get a camping mattress, which is much smaller than a bed mattress, and put that on the floor (of course, with permission).
