I see someone nominated Lower Sabie :-?

I think it’s the best game viewing area in Kruger or just about any place I have visited and the view from the camp is awesome, but..........

There’s a massive lack of family units (only 3 in the entire camp), the camp sites are probably the smallest in the park, the staff some of the worst trained, there are staff units in the camp with the paying visitors, the ablutions serving the EH units are the worst I have seen in Kruger and all the cool units facing the river have been designed so that one braais next to their neighbour :twisted:

I still try and book it first each Kruger visit though :-?

Hello Flutts =O: 0:

Ja, myself and someone else nominated LS...

As you say, best general game viewing, with all facilities you could wish for! One has to maybe think of the current situation vs the historical situation, and what may come?

At the moment...very accessible, opportunity for escaping along side roads in ALL directions!

Basically, many Kruger camps have the same infrastructure...this one scores regarding the above! \O

Lower Sabie is too large and always crowded with hundreds of day visitors, the roads in the area are rewarding for traffic jams as much as good sithings, for me close to a nightmare =O:

Sorry where does the camp score RP :-? Facilities ..0..

Game viewing isn't the camp. :-?

The award is for the best camp, not game viewing O** =O: 0:

Game viewing and location of a camp are also important O**
