Unless I'm mistaken a BD2N unit is in A circle. Number 14 and 15 are closest to the fence :D
Keep an eye out for the African Wild Cat that patrols around the area :D

The highest numbers are furthest from reception. So less people!
Number 179 is right at the end at the corner of the two fences :thumbs_up:

I like 167. It is in the middle where the two "half circles" meet. The braai is right next to the fence and the rest of the bungalows are sort of behind you instead of next to you.

Sure there can be slight colour variations especially if seen at night in poor light.



Yes, we've seen AWC everynight we stayed in Satara last March.

An AWC visits Satara cam so often that the cammers have named him/her. Perhaps the same cat?

As you can see, the cat is certainly grey in colour :D

I have booked bungalow BG2HB in Satara but can't find it on the camp layout. Can anyone tell me the bungalow number for BG2HB as there is only 1 in camp and what is the diffirence between BG2 and BG2HB.


Hi Laeveldleeu

Unit BG2HB is in the B circle. Number 42 to be exact. It's the one bungalow in the B circle that has not been upgraded. I have pictures of that unit and will add them to the accommodation threat later today.

I booked this morning and I asked what the difference was between the hb and was told that the hb are the newer ones,,,, so I booked that. Only after did I discover that there is only one, so am thinking that I should phone and change it to another unit.

Also, some confusion here as the B circle is actually one of BG3 with 3 beds, and the photo of the BG2HB shows 3 beds .... so are there actually 3 beds in this unit. I would love to see the photos of it when you have time to post them :)


Hi barkingmad

I really don't know about this unit. If you don't trust it, try to change to another unit. I added some pictures of number 42 in the accommodation thread. Have a look HERE

Have a nice day

Re: braai facilities at Satara camp

All accommodation has Outside braais even the camp sites . Very basic If it says no utensils you have to supply your own pots and pans .. but these can be purchased at a very minimal rate at the shops outside and inside the park For braais you have to supply charcoal or firewood and some thing to start the fire ( matches and firelighters)
Communal kitchens have double hotplates and sinks and always boiling water . Best place to meet people and discuss sightings with them etc. etc. Most units have small fridges with a small freezer section.

Firstly lets start with the braai. Every unit will have one.

And now the BD and BG. Please could you let us have the exact codes and we can have a look.
Each camp has a slightly different interpretation of the codes.
The BD units tend to have a kitchenette - 2 hot plates, a kettle, a kitchen sink and utensils (pans, plates, cutlery and cups).
The BG units have no cooking equipment but the communal kitchen will be close by and will have a number of hot plates and a hot water geyser (for coffee etc) and sinks for washing up.

All units will have a fridge.

Looking at the other codes - V means a perimeter view, Z means disabled access and E I think means the stoep is enclosed (but don't quote me). I have no idea what N or B indicate, sorry.

Warm welcome paddyross! :clap:

The BG bungalows will have a fridge but not a kitchen and you will either have to do a braai (barbeque) or use a communal kitchen which has hot water and a hot plate cooking and washing up areas but you will have to supply your own utensils and cooking equipment.
The BD bungalows will have their own kitchens with utensils, pots and pans etc and a braai stand outside.
I see Saraf has also described the various accommodations. :thumbs_up:

We were in the Satara shop about 2 weeks ago, the renovations have been completed. The shop was also fully stocked :thumbs_up:

Donny, looking at the map, maybe try keep away from the amphitheater (65-73) ... they run a movie each night. Not for long ... at about 7.
