Anyone stay at this hide recently? I will be there in beginning October and just wanted to know if they still supply bedding that you collect at Mopani Camp or do you need to take your own? Last question, are there chairs for around the braai area or once again do you need to take your own?
Thanks

We stayed there in March, and the answer to your questions are yes and yes. :D

There were some cobwebs under the chairs at the braai that looked suspiciously like the handiwork of a black widow :shock: , so I would suggest checking them before your sit down! (We ended up checking all the chairs, and picking two cobweb-free ones to use, moving the others (very carefully) as far from the braai as we could! (We did also inform Mopani reception, and they said they'd get someone to check it out)

Thanks squirrel_asc

Spiders are not my best friends so I might just stand around the braai.
Really looking forward to the night
