“New fences are being errected currently to keep livestock out of the park, or game out of the town !!??? There were no other campers in July 2021, but everything was maintained and clean. A new rule has been implemented by DWNP recently: payment of conservation fees are calculated per day and not by the number of nights you stay. That means that you pay the extra day fee on the day of departure.” - Mietsie Visser, 2021/08/11

“There are 10 sites, all very large with 'braai' facility and tap each. There are metal cages in which to deposit waste, but the monkeys open them regularly due to guests throwing foodstuff away. The ablutions are serviced daily. Currently livestock from Kumaga village come into the park and camp, due to the fact that the Boteti River is drying up once more,after flowing annually for almost 10 years. Thus the ferry at Kumaga is on dry land and not operational. One can drive through the dry riverbed to access the park gate.” - Mietsie Visser, 2019/06/25

“Five camping sites under trees with an ablution block containing showers, wash basins and flushing toilets. One centrally placed water pipe.” - David Clack, 2009/02/02
