    Site 4 is a good site and is right on the fence. It is on the opposite side to the picnic area and faces the bush. You will get the Hyena run and Elephant is often in this area. There is bush between site 3 and 4.

    The only downside is the path runs in front of this site as well as 3 and people use it not worrying that they are in your lounge.

    I am hoping to get advice on which Tsendze campsite to book. I've left it late so the best perimeter sites are taken so I need to choose between 14, 15, 21 and 23. From these four sites which would you say is the most private and has the best ambience. Hoping to camp alongside a few big appleleaf or leadwood trees if possible. 21 is the closest to the ablution but I would rather walk a bit further if the others offer a better setting. If any of these sites have a view of the perimeter fence that would be a bonus. Any opinions would be much appreciated...

    terrible camp, don't book there at all if you can help it. Go somewhere else.

    Just returned from a 11 day stay at site 13....

    14 is OK - I would go for it

    I have not seen 21/23 but remember that is directly across the Mooiplaas picnic site....so you might have neighbors during the day

    Anyone have else better info on 21/23 ?

    I'd go for 23 then, if those are your options.
    Not quite perimeter view straight up, but you can walk the 5m to the fence.
    To the bottom right (of the picture) you have the manager's housing, but it's some distance off.

    I always camp at #3.... there is a massive appleleaf under which I always camp

    You have any photos of the tree? We're going in December and I have a feeling we'll need the shade

    14 and 15 might be more private. There is absolutely nothing separating 23 from no 24. And 23 is not as big as it looks on the map. There is shade though.

    Tsendze definitely a no go.... Those damn Scops owls are everywhere, they are not cute at all and they make awful sounds at night...

    Shade is a plus, but luckily I took some 5v fans for the RTT. Without them I wouldn't have been able to sleep at night. 35degC with not a breath of wind...not comfortable at all.

    This was December last year.

    Roger will show you where the Scopps owls are so that you can avoid them.
    Just watch out for the wild bees and resident snake(s). Not joking I got sting once while browsing a map in my camp chair away from the "hive" and saw an ominous looking sake curled between the bricks at the one ablution block during one of my (unfortunately needed) VERY early hour visits to it.

    It is solar powered so remember to switch off the lights when done!

    Aaaah just check when it is the mopani worm season ... just saying.
    Answering the call of the wild is just so much beter than answering the telephone.

    I would definitely recommend one or more of those fans. They were life savers, the nights were brutal in terms of humidity

    Thank you for the advice. Think I will go with 14. Fortunately we going next month so the heat shouldn't be a problem. That said can you comment on how well the communal gas deep freezers work? We are going for 5 nights and I'm trying to decide if we should bring our camping fridge and battery system? It takes up a lot of room so we might be packed to the roof but I'm guessing its a necessity?

    The picture is from last year September.

    I was in Dendron yesterday, it was 28

    Polokwane at 26, Skukuza at 29

    Don't assume because it winter up here, its not hot.

    The fridge could save you a lot of money on ice.

    Its either the fridge or a BIG cooler-box? (For the beers)
