    Question Water at Mabua campsites?

    Hi fellow community members,

    Is anyone able to please comment on the water situation at Mabua's campsites? Do they have running water, even if intermittent?

    I'm doing a trip to there at the end of April and am planning to be self-sufficient, but it would be nice to know that there are alternatives for showers and so forth.

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    Last we were there.

    Monamodi 1 & 2
    Leshloago 2
    Mpaya 1 & 2
    Entrance camps

    had water, not all had showers.

    Unwritten rule that the sites will allow you to get water, not all of them will allow you to shower naked.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    After the late rains we've received, you should be ok.

    I hope so. Someone in our group is allergic to bee stings.

    Has rain in Mabua been confirmed? I searched but could not find confirmation.

    Apologies for the slight hijack Senior
