Hi anitalois, welcome to the forum!

On our last trip to KNP we ended up taking a supply of the Starbucks instant coffee tubes and that worked well ...far better than instant crystal coffee that we made due with on our trip prior. I've thought about buying and bringing a travel coffee maker...haven't decided on that yet. 8)

Hi anitalois and Welcome!

I travel with a large thermal mug and a Melitta filter cone (#2 filter size). It does take up a bit of space (tho I pack things inside the mug and the filter cone), but I can't stand instant coffee. The mug serves as pot and then can also double as a travel mug in the car :)

Even better if you leave the instant coffee (yukkie stuff) out :lol:

I use little one cup coffee filter bags, thermos flask and a thermal mug.
Treat myself to coffee and biscuits near a dam or so at 10:00.

Don't worry the proportion is gradually heading that way!

Mm I didn't know you could even get one cup bags. Here in Aus it's all about 'pods'.

Warm welcome to the forum Lesleybi! :clap:

The BD2U's will have crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.
Normally it will say utensils and that is what they mean.

Enjoy your stay. :thumbs_up:

Yes, crockery, glasses, cutlery, pots and very basic utensils will be provided. However, we always take our own steak knives, sharp cooking knives, can opener (sometimes provided), cork screw (sometimes provided) and oven gloves. We also pack coffee mugs as some camps do not provide them. In fact, we pack an awful lot, just so we don't get caught out! The camp shops also stock some basic cutlery and crockery.

Hi Mant,

We stayed in the BD2NZ chalet last week and it had a microwave oven.

In which type of accommodation will you be staying??

Yes, sure it will, when we were there last year they had just put brand new larger multi function microwaves in the units, in fact they barely fitted on the counter and we had suggested to them they fit a shelf above to better accommodate it.

Berg-en-Dal BD3U 27 - :thumbs_up:
Lower Sabie BD2U 81 - No Microwave
Lower Sabie BD3UZ Number 16 - :thumbs_up:
Olifants BBD2V 9 - No Microwave
Satara BD2V 167- No Microwave
Satara BD2V 161- No Microwave
Tamboti LST3 40 - :thumbs_up:
Skukuza LR2ZW 91 - :thumbs_up:

I think generally microwaves are provided where the kitchenette is on the inside or where there is a safe spot for it on the inside.... 8)

(But in all honesty, we never make use of the microwaves either way :tongue: )

I can confirm that the BD2N units in Satara have microwaves. (But no coffee mugs! :big_eyes: - had to use our travel mugs last time :lol: )

Warm welcome to the forum DiegoSantos! :clap:

There will be a braai stand outside your bungalow.
Some camps do offer for hire a utensil box on a daily basis.
I will try and confirm if Skukuza has those.
Otherwise the shop there does sell basic utensils that you could purchase and use for simple meals.
Enjoy your stay. :thumbs_up:

Hi ,
hope I am telling not the wrong thing but Bungalow with Kitchenet should have everything to prepair your meals and also to eat.
Look at your choice and it will say,what this Kitchenet has in it.

I can understand you so well, the first time we visitet KNP, we also had lots of questions and did not have this perfect Forum discovered yet.
Enjoy your stay and just aske if you have somemore questions.
Greetings
Cécile :gflower:


Hi Cecilec

At Satara with Kitchenet.

Thanks for your reply.
