Mopani Camp Cellphone Access

Unread post by Marvin » Tue May 31, 2016 10:06 pm

I need help and advice.

The SANParks website concerning the facilities of Mopani Rest Camp includes Cellphone reception

( ... vities.php)
Has anyone any experience about this.? Is there access to the mentioned conference center?
I need just one hour for a call and don't want to leave KNP for this.
If I have to ask someone at Mopani Camp directly, please let me know.

Thank you

No need to - if I am understanding what you wish/need to do.

If you are going to hire a cellphone and sim card when you get to SA at the airport, then you can use it in most camps. I suggest you hire a Vodacom sim, and make sure you can call overseas from SA on it when you hire it. Making calls from SA to overseas is expensive - for us, lol.

If you need internet, that you can do at the Mopani Conference Centre.

mopani is covered by vodacom for both voice and data as used by me last week.

most rustic camps don't have coverage except Malelene.

i had found mtn had wider coverage a couple of years back but decided to try the b4igo sim package from vodacom @ OT. they enable international calling normally 5R but didn't charge me :lol:

We were at Mopani last weekend, just passing and had lunch there. We use Vodacom and got good results.

We had been at Shingwedzi and there cell reception was OK for calls, but almost non-existent for internet (Facebook, e-mails, Forum). It was a pleasure to arrive at Mopani and find that there was excellent reception for internet and calls. You will be fine.

Punda Maria also had good reception.

We recently stayed in one of the family cottages # 45 with perimeter view.
And these were the views from the veranda which after staying in some of the others was a little restricted and we felt could have been opened up some more, but very pretty anyway.
