Media Release: KNP Launches Tsendze

Date: 2006-10-25

A group of the top tour operators were given a sneak preview of the Kruger National Park’s newest overnight facility, the Tsendze Rustic Campsite today (Thursday October 19, 2006).

Designed with a back-to-basics theme, Tsendze Rustic Campsite includes 34 camp sites, two ablution facilities and two camp kitchens. Scheduled to receive its first guests from November 1, 2006 onwards, the facility is conveniently located seven kilometres south of Mopani Rest Camp and about 20 kilometres north of the Giriyondo/Makhadzi turn off on the H1-6 main road between Letaba and Mopani rest camps.

Keeping with the theme of Tsendze Rustic Campsite, services provided have been kept to the basics with warm water from gas geysers and lighting in the kitchens and ablutions provided by a solar battery system. There will be no electricity supplied to the campers at the camp and generators will not be allowed to operate, thus ensuring that noise levels are kept to an absolute minimum.

Each campsite is equipped with a refuse bin and braai facilities with taps shared between every three campsites. Ablution blocks feature two unique “open-to-the-skies” showers. Guests will be required to check-in at Mopani Rest Camp Reception where a specific site will be allocated to them.
