Bucky - good morning :D

I do not know the FU5 unit(s), but have a look at ACCOMMODATION on the LS page, you will see some photos for this FU5 unit if you click on the code. From the description it looks as if there is only 1 bathroom. The FU4V units have 2 rooms, each with own bathroom - and stunning views.

The tents are just great. The other 'Mites will help out here, but from what I read previously, it seems as if the tents are in a process of refurbing - but I am not sure. If you get a LST2U, most of them have very good views. But do yourself a favour and go to the BOARD INDEX, CAMPS and ROADS KNP, Topic: Accommodation photos. On the first page you will find an index for all the camps and units with photos. This will help a lot. The tents have a wonderful bathroom and big shower. But keep in mind that there is only a fan and no aircon.

If I can make a recommendation :hmz: If your folks are not happy with staying in the tents, have a look if a FU4V unit is not available (look at AVAILABILITY on LS page). The views are as stunning as the tents, but maybe the accom will be more userfriendly for your folks. There are photos of this units too on the above-mentioned topic.

Hi all,
Thanks for the input.
I phoned the camp, and they say the FU5 has a bathroom per room, so we will try that out.

My choice, being a regular camper would have been the tents, but this is a special gift for the folks .

I will try do an update on this unit when I am back.

Hi ww29

We have stayed in the BD3U units and they are great. You have a nice view of the river. Number 3 - 22 are BD3U units, and from number 74 upwards are BD2U units. (the map still shows the old numbers) You can look for photo's and maps in the accommodation thread here There are lots of photo's of these units. :thumbs_up:

Good luck planing your trip

Hi All

Which of the LST2 Safari tents are the best in terms of location?
I know they are not on the perimeter, but unfortunately could not get any of the LST2U ones :(

Thanks! :)

Hi Stevengzn :D

Number 15. It is situated next to the perimeter on the left hand side, very close to the fence. It has a small view on the river between nr 16 and 17. According to me, a very wonderful location.

Have fun :think:

Would help greatly if anybody maybe knows the exact content of these kitchenettes.

Hi Wikus, and a warm welcome to the forum! :D
Yes, there are pots/pans, plates, glasses, mugs, cutlery, other utensils for cooking, kettle, (there was a toaster as well when we were last there.)
So basically pretty much all you need for self catering/braaing.
One tip is to take along some proper steak knives as they generally only have ordinary table ones which are often not very sharp! :wink:

Enjoy!

Hi there

We have booked the last hutted accommodation available over December....EH5.
It seems that these are at the ends of the EH3's, so four of them to choose from: 49, 54, 55 & 60.
Which one should we request/is the best out of the lot? (I realise that we should not expect much here, but would like to make it as good as possible!)
Do we go with the one furthest away from the road? Anything else we need to know? (like: are the EH3's usually booked by tour operators?).

Thanks

Hi Rooikat

Most of the EH5's are the same and are very nice, my advise is to avoid number 55. It has very and I mean very big steps, its closest to the road to the staff village and pool, and due to the setup of the huts you dont really have a nice area to sit at a table outside your hut.

I have never seen tour operators book the EH3 huts.

Thank you so much Gatita.

(I saw this tent on one of my last trips and thought it was a honeymoon tent or 4 sleeper tent because it seemed so huge. Will have to carry a chair down to the braai in order to sit there to enjoy the fire.)

Morning Shikaari :D

You have booked a wonderful accom - FU4V's are really something ...

Your questions:
1. Unit numbers 94/93 (and I think 92/91 as well - not sure). Have a look at this units by going to the Board Topic, CAMPS and ROADS, click on Accommodation Photos, scroll down for Lower Sabie and you can see for yourself.

2. It is situated at the most eastern side of the camp, the last units next to the BD3U'S /BD2U's, VERY near to the fence with a spectacular view on the river.

3. Very spacious, big private patio, big kitchen area with two glass slide doors - leading to two double rooms en-suite.

4. For photos, please go to the above-mentioned Topic.

I am really :mrgreen: - you will have a wonderful stay :thumbs_up:

As someone beat me to booking the FU4V unit that was available :mrgreen: , we are investigating the FU5. From all the info on the forum, I still can not get my head around this unit!

Pictures on roaneric's accommodation thread show two doors (but is there a third?)...as in one door to kitchen, one to one bed and bathroom and another to another bed and bathroom.

What does the "no interleading doors means? (Each room seperate and you have to walk out onto the stoep to get to next bedroom?). Or are the bedrooms together and the bathrooms not interleading?

Anyone able to clear this for me, please?

Dear Rooikot

No interleading doors means that each bedroom is separate and you have to walk out onto the stoep to get to the next bedroom. Please note that each bedroom has its own bathroom inside.
