Comments [ leave a comment ]

“Ablutions are well maintained and cleaned daily. The water is clean and there is a small tuckshop at reception. One can also buy wood from reception. There is only one waterhole in the park, which is very popular with photographers. In May to June the annual zebra migration to Khumaga and ajacent pans along the Boteti River takes place. The herds return with the first summer rains.” - Mietsie Visser, 2021/08/11

“The sites are situated in a shady glade and there is a small toilet/shower for each sex. If the water tanks are filled they may be working but do not rely on it.” - David Clack, 2009/01/31
