    Great Photography, Report and Park to visit. Thanks for sharing.
    The loop around the Ngweshla Dam, is all you need to do there.
    Kennedy 1 & 2 are also picturesque to visit with plenty of game.
    Most of the picnic sites are great...

    Thanks, Dave great report and photography.

    Do you know what the road conditions were like from Robins to Deteema/ Sinamatella?

    Any idea what the camping fees are at Sinamatella?

    In June we did Panda, Robins, Deteema, Sinamatella, Main Camp. Roads were OK until Sinamatella but the stretch between Sinamatella and Main Camp was absolutely horrendous - it is the same tar road that National Parks paved in the 70s I think and absolutely nothing has been done to it so its a combination of broken asphalt and giant potholes and very slow going. We also didn't see much game after about Masuma Dam until we got to Guvalala so if we have to do it again, we will go out at Sinamatella and then around thru Hwange and back into Main Camp via the Vic Falls-BYO road.

    Re: Camping rates, I am not sure. When we were they were 1 week from the investment group grand opening of the rebuilt lodge and chalets. The guy told us they were redoing the ablutions etc in the campground so am sure the rates have changed but the lodge is now very nice (and expensive) and geared towards overseas clientele who are willing to pay those high rates. If nobody responds on here I'm sure you can google the campground and rates and may find something on Trip Advisor? Hope that helps....

    Thanks Gustav. We didn't do the Robins-Deteema road but Deteema to Sinamatella was fine...as long as you don't do what I did and take the Salt Pan loop!

    I can't help with Sinamatella camping fees I'm afraid.
