“It is very difficult to book this campsite, but you can do it at Kwalate office in Maun and pay there as well. Only cash accepted. There is no water in the mornings as the solar pump does not work once the sun has set. Please remove all rubbish and close all ablution doors and windows to keep baboons out.” - Mietsie Visser, 2023/10/26

“The long awaited development of the ablution facilities is at last under way. The sites are laid out under trees and there is usually a table and bench. The lack of game in the area is a drawback but we have seen elephants and on one memorable occasion a pack of wild dogs came to drink at a ground level bird table” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
