I think it is always fun if you are able to indentify 'your' bungalow from up above.

Hi disco3,

Bedding is provided as well as bath towels. Cutlery and crockery is also provide. All you need to bring along is food and drinks as the shop only sells a very limited range of supplies.

Hallo Disco3
Tweerivieren has all the equipment to make decent food, there is a braai outside, fridge inside...so what more do you need
Last time we were there our neighbour brought in so many extra electricity stuff the plugs constantly tripped.
And if you do not feel like cooking, go to the restaurant
Enjoy it

Hi Disco3 & welcome to the forum.

The bungalows have recently been refurbished and have a decent shower & toilet. Each bed also gets a bath and hand towel and a complimentary cakelet of soap. There is an outside table with chairs to match the number of beds in the unit, and a braai place a reasonable distance from your front door. Very civilised.

Just keep an eye open at night for the odd scorpion, especially if it is windy.

Enjoy yourself, you are in for a real treat.

Could it not be that they are not neccessarily more prevelent when windy, it's just that it is more difficult to spot them because the wind blows sand over them, covering them just under the surface?

Nice guess Dreamer, but no cigar.

When the wind blows the flying insects on which they prey don't fly and are easy meat. Simple as that.

We are wondering about the difference in Family Cottage (FA4) and Family Cottage (FA2/4A), except the two-room and higher price at the later (which we could read on the Sanparks Twee Rivieren info)?
Is there any other difference? Which is better to book in your opinion and why?

As far as I know :

FA4 is one large room, with the kitchen in a corner and two single beds. In addition, a sleeper couch suitable for children.

FA2/4a is two rooms, one bedroom with 2 single beds, and one room for the kitchen area and two more single beds.

Both are spacious, and pleasant - I don't like having the fridge in the bedroom, so prefer FA2/4a. Also the FA4 have a row of units in front of them, whereas the FA2/4a has a view out over the riverbed. But this does not worry me, I don't spend much time in camp !!

Hope this helps

Hi Safarigil
Just to confirm what peterbee has already told you.
We find the FA2/4A more suitable for our family of 4 as sleepercouch in the FA4 is way too small for teenagers! If you are only requiring accom for 3 people then the FA4 is absolutely perfect
At home...... dreaming of next trip to KTP

Heat in Chalets/cottages

Unread post by Keith » Thu Feb 14, 2008 3:10 am

We are coming to KTP in July for our first visit (first to South Africa as well). We have booked the family chalet (FCH6) as we have 4 children. Does anyone know if the chalet has heat in it given it will be cold? Same question for the family cottage at Nossob (FA6). Should we bring blankets, etc.? Thanks.
