They do look as if they have a view to the fence and bush!

Thank you Elsa, we have booked a BD2M, but then wondered if a unit with a view would be worth paying the extra money for.

- I spend 2 nights in (few) camps.

SANParks Regulations says:
"10. OVERNIGHT VISITORS – Guests are only allowed to stay at a booked and recognized overnight facilities and must report to the relevant reception before occupying accommodation or camping;"

* Does that mean that I must inform myself to reception every day before I go to my accommodation?

* Or does this "occupying" mean check-in at first day as in normal hotels? to get key for correct accommodation?
-> that I check-in once (first day after 14:00), and then check-out (last day before 10:00). but I don't need to inform myself to reception in other days.

Hi timoha

In the Kruger National Park , you book in at the reception the day you arrive at your camp (after 14h00 but now and again they allow you to book in a bit earlier) . They will give you keys for your bungalow for the time of your stay.
Once you have finished your stay at that camp you just have to drop the keys off in a box at the gate exit. You do not have to check out at reception.

In the Kalagadi NP it is different, you have to leave your keys at reception every time you leave the camp.

I hope this helps!

Hi All, Very excited about our trip coming up in May. We'll be in Letaba for 5 nights and then down to Lower Sabie for the remaining two. :) We are booked into the FU4P cottage at Lower Sabie, can anyone tell me what they are like?

Hi

We are first time campers to the Kruger (we normally stay in chalets) going as a family group to 3 camp sites between 14 of us. Is there any way to request particular camp sites at Satara so that we can be all together?

Hi manhug47 - no, at Satara it is first come, first served. You will have to take pot luck to get three sites together that suit you. If you are not going during peak time, that will not be a problem I am sure.

Even in peak time I am sure you will find sites together to suit you.

It is a good idea to arrive early - between 8 - 9 am, as by then most folk changing camps have left and there is more options to choose from.

Remember shade is important too.

Warm welcome to the forum Manhug47! :clap:
Unfortunately not, the camp sites are first come first served at all the camps except Tsendze.
Try and get there as early as possibly and keep an eye out for those who are packing up and moving on is all I can suggest really but others might be able to give you more informed advice.

And I see DB has given you that informed advice! :thumbs_up:
