    Enige kamp in Tsendze is verseker beter as tuis! Geniet dit, dis nie doodsake as jy nie ander site kan kry nie

    Just received my confirmation for 3 nights in December. Guess we cannot stay away.

    This year we are trying a few nights at Maroela as well.

    Groot fan van Maroela... Gesien hoe 'n kampeerder probeer met a ratel baklei met 'n besem om sy beskuit terug te kry. Die kampeerder het verloor... en moes toe verder met die ratel baklei net bloot omdat die ratel nou kwaad was en nie baie daarvan gehou het dat enige iemand hom nie laat doen presies wat hy wil nie. Dit als voor 6 die oggend.

    Die feit dat daar elektrisiteit is maak nie rerig 'n verskil nie. In my boeke is Maroela baie na aan Balule in "gevoel".

Toe ons terugkom van ons middag game drive het 'n o-ring reg langs ons ingedruk waar daar nie regtig plek was nie. So toe is dit 'val oor buurman se tent toue' en al die fun om te sien hoe hulle die hyena deur die draad voer.

    Desember 2018 sou ons ook daar kamp maar toe ons daar opdaag was die kamp so te se onder water na erge reen die vorige nag. Die mense heel onder by die draad was nog besig om al hulle modder beddegoed te probeer skoon en droog kry. En nog reen was voorspel, om die waarheid te se toe ons besluit om maar eerder te ry het dit net weer begin reen. Bygese ons was toe al 14 dae in Kruger en my tiener was moeg vir kamp.

    Ek dink mens moenie by die draad kamp nie

    Twee keer by Balule gekamp, nie regtig 'n fan nie. Tsendze bly maar my hart se punt. As ek reg tel sal die Desember ons 10de besoek wees.

    Ai ja dit klink na slegte geluk met die onbeskofte bure. Maar seker ooral 'n rol van die dice. Was die laaste twee jaar elke jaar daar in September. Dit kan seke soos 'n modderbad raak in reen seisoen, nie daaraan gedink nie.

    Ja met daai trip was ons nog nie ervare Kruger kampeerders nie. Nou bly ons so ver moontlik van 'n heining af, want ek raak regtig lelik as mense die hyenas voer of hulle kids aanmoedig om dit te doen.

    Maroela raak baie modderig. As jy weer daar kamp, kyk bietjie hoeveel slote daar gegrawe is om water weg te lei. Dalk nie so duidelik in die droee seisoen nie, maar almal wat by die onderste ry langs die heining kamp in die reen seisoen grawe 'n sloot om water weg te lei van sy kamp af. Dis ook sagte grond wat nie goed dreineer nie.

    Tsendze is such an awesome campsite!
    You really get that in the bush feeling there.

    I stayed at 26.
    Right on the fence, good amount of shade and close to ablutions with the outdoor showers.

    Without a doubt my favourite campsite I've stayed at in kruger

    Site 26 WAS the best site years ago when the camp first opened as it was on its own surrounded by Grass and Bush ..but then the Knuckledraggers found Tsendze and Instead of the allowed 1 vehicle and tent etc for a campsite sometimes 6 cars and 6 off road trailers would cram onto that site ..Result today most of the wood has been stripped from the Apple Leaf Tree and with all the trailers at once there they had to camp on the surrounding grass so today there is far less shade and no surrounding grass for privacy and Site 26 is now part of the double stand 27 & 28 ..spoilt forever by idiots who should be practising their bush clearing camping skills at Hollywood camps like Satara. We now stay at No 14. We have been going since it opened

    Mens moet NOOIT (ever) met n Ratel baklei nie!!!!!!!!
    MIskien was hy (die persoon) nie heeltemal OK nie?

    Eish, eish, en nog n eish!

    Ons hou baie van Maroela asook Balule en ook Tsendzi en ook Punda Maria en ook ... eish .. ons hou baie van KNP!

    Maar ons bly maar ook weg van die standard kampeer plekke as ons kan en ons gaan nie na KNP in skool vakansies nie. (Eish!)

    Ek dink hy get gedink die ratel gaan skrik as hy hom met 'n besem probeer verjae. Did het die teenoorgestelde effek gahad.

    Ek kon darem my tent toe kry en eenkant gaan staan voor Mr. Ratel verby gekom het. Sou maar liewer s "sorry Oom" vir die ratel voor ek met hom probeer baklei.
