Has anybody been there lately?    I am supposed to clock in there on 11 Sep.   Friends who were there today and are currently camping at B&D before moving to Skukuza, advised that the camp area is overflowing with campers.  New arrivals at the camp could not find a space for their Exclusive.  My friends have changed their reservation to exclude Skukuza.

Has anyone had recent overcrowding issues there?

We camped at Skukuza until 28 Aug and there were lots of open stands. Most campers were spread out with a few camping next to each other. Most probably family or friends.

But things could have changed since 29 August.

The Happy Campers.

Is dit die tradisionele manier waar mense in een plek (waar plek is) reserveer en dan in 'n ander plek (waar hulle eintlik wil wees) gaan kamp.

Het al baie sulke stories gehoor.

En Sanparke het nie die vermoë of stelsels in plek om elke karavaan en motor in 'n kampeerarea na te gaan nie.

So wie se skuld is die te veel karavane dan nou in 'n plek?

REAList ek neem aan jy bedoel dat jy in die een KAMP bespreek en dan in n ander KAMP gaan staan, want jy kan mos nie n spesifieke staanplek bespreek nie.

Die Kruger seisteem is pateties as dit by beheer BINNE-in die park gaan. Jy boek in by n hek en jy boek uit by n hek op spesifieke datums. Wat tussen-in gebeur is nobody's bussiness. Jy kan staan net waar jy wil, en in en uit ry by kampe na hartelus. Na al die jare het ek nog NOOIT gevind dat iemand my kom vra vir papiere in n kamp nie. Ek weet van mense wat nie plek kon kry in n spesifieke kamp nie, maar nadat hulle by n hek ingeboek het, eenvoudig na daardie kamp van hulle keuse gery het en vir die volle tyd daar gestaan het.

Na my mening behoort daar n inboek-proses by ELKE kamp se HEK te wees. 

Ons het nog nooit aangemenld by Letaba of Singwedzi nie, ons ry in (natuurlik op die korrekte datums) en gaan staan.

Die enigste kamp, waarvan ek bewus is, wat van tyd tot tyd toegangsbeheer toepas, is Satara. Maar ook net wanneer hulle lus is. Ek het gelukkig nog nooit beleef dat ek nie 'n staanplek in my bespreekte kamp kon kry nie. Maar ek sal darem baie ongelukkig voel as dit wel gebeur.

Ek ry ook meestal direk na die kampeerterrein, slaan op en gaan meld dan eers aan by Ontvangs. Nadat ek dit eenkeer by Satara wou doen en wel voorgekeer is, is dit maar die een kamp waar ek eers gaan inboek. En o ja, ook by Tsendze waar ons by Mopani moet gaan inboek.

Jeepers! It seems a free for all from what I'm reading. If I arrived at a camp and found they had to squeeze me into an unfavourable site because there were campers that were there having booked to camp elsewhere, I would be pretty cheesed off if I found out. Guaranteed the management would deem it a storm in a teacup as it would provide a headache for them to correct. Which is their blinking job! I would come off second best and the guilty party would get away with it and do it next time too. No work ethic and customer care by the park. As long as the money rolls in....frown

Soet wees!

Maybe the Honorary Rangers should make it one of their tasks to check bookings when on duty in the camp. Just need to catch one or two to discourage people from doing it.

We are camping at L Sabie for 12 days and visited Skukuza a few times.

The camp site is all that is open and 100% occupied. Campers Are staying max on a site (6) because there is no other accommodation available. The same here at L Sabie. The reason given is that renovations and sanitising in chalets has not been completed? Really?

A few chalets are occupy your staff.

Groete,
Paul

Because of the limited accommodation the camps are very quiet. Which is very nice for us.

Day visitors are the most on the roads at the moment. After 5 the roads are very quiet.

As campers we are enjoying it tremendously.

Groete,
Paul

Ons staan tans by Swadini en het gister die Nelspruit kantoor geskakel vir 'n dagpermit en vra sommer terloops of daar nog kampplek is. Die dame sê ja en kry toe plek by Skukuza van môre af. Sal vroegoggend by Orpen wees.

Ek moet maar nog my lus 'n bietjie inhou. Ons is vanaf 12 November vir 9 aande in die wildtuin - weliswaar nie vir kamp nie, maar in chalets. Drie aande elk in Mopani, Shingwedzi en Bateleur. Die gróót kámp lê eers voor in Mei/Jun volgende jaar wanneer ons vir 42 aande bespreek is. Maar Skukuza 'feature' nie op my reisplan nie.

We live in Nelspruit and never had a problem before. It seems more that the problem is with the campers using the sites than the SANPARKS system. If you book in a specific camp, you go to that camp, book in at the camp office and get your stand.

If you book a camp and go to another camp, just because someone is not checking up on you, is your own responsibility and if you are one of the people doing it or know someone who is doing it, you can't complain if you can't get a stand.

The online booking system did show zero sites available for the previous couple of days....perhaps it is indeed accurate!?

Toe ek plek gekry het in Skukuza was daar vir twee nagte twee staanplekke op die webtuiste. Nadat ek plek gekry het, het dit dadelik net een oor gewys. 

Sovêr is ek baie tevrede met SANParks hoe hulle my behandel en dink persoonlik hulle is soos SARS goed georganiseer.  

Net terloops het nou by die winkeltjie goed gekoop en toe storm daar 'n man in hoogs ontstoke omdat hy drank gekoop het en moes bewys dat hy oornag. Dagbesoekers mag nie drank koop nie. Sit hengse argument op en vra die dame of hy soos 'n skelm lyk. 

Sou geatwoord het "weet nie meneer maar jy kannie lees nie" want daar is kennisgewings op. 

Ai ons ou nasie voel gou hulle is verontreg.

Letaba het nie meer 'n shop nie. Gisteraand afgebrand. Koop maar voorraad by ander kampe.

Yes I did. But we have other plans for that period.

We live in Nelspruit and never had a problem before. It seems more that the problem is with the campers using the sites than the SANPARKS system. If you book in a specific camp, you go to that camp, book in at the camp office and get your stand.

If you book a camp and go to another camp, just because someone is not checking up on you, is your own responsibility and if you are one of the people doing it or know someone who is doing it, you can't complain if you can't get a stand.

 

My father always said, “If everyone does as you are doing will there be chaos?” If the answer is yes then don’t do it. It is just plain selfish!

Paul
