    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.

    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.

    What are your dates and which campsites Senior?

    We are also there towards end of April. We will fill our water cans as needed at campsites that has water but are taking all our drinking water as usual.

    Great! This will be my first visit to the park and I can't wait!
