Book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
The filling station at the camp sells premium and unleaded petrol and diesel.
You can sometimes buy WIFI vouchers at the shop, but this is not reliable.
Guests travelling to Tweerivieren via Upington/Van Zylsrus must not drive at a high speed as the gravel sections on both routes are badly corrugated.

From Tweerivieren to Mata Mata is about 2.5 hours.

This is quite a busy camp compared to the Two Rivers Camp on the Botswana side of the border here.
