    Default Khutse & Mabua campsite advice - July

    We aim to be in Mabua for 3 nights and Khutse for 2 nights first week of July next year.

    Can anyone recommend the best campsites?

    Also, drive-time estimate for Mabua-Khutse?

    Mabua to Khutse is a stretch, going to be a long day. We stayed at Lesholoago 2 in April, it is close to the waterhole and saw lion and cheetah. Also not to far from the gate for when you move to Khutse. But then there is no bad campsite in Mabua.
    In Khutse try and get Maharusele 3, nice shade, secluded and also not to far from the gate. According to me the Khutse sites are bunched to close toghether.

    Hate to contradict Tron but....

    I rate Molose #2 over #1 and rate either Moreswe 1 or 2 as the best of the best.

    we had Khutse 2, Moreswe 2 and Molose 1 in May this year.

    They were all three very good, however Molose 1 is the nicest because of the short distance to the nice waterhole. The Khutse sites are a bit too close to each other, however we did not have many neighbors by then.....

    But......... at Khutse 2 we had 3 lions at our doorstep one early morning including some nice views of them at the waterhole.

    The other 2 sites were really nice but we had less game to view by then.... it was really quiet.
