You have to appreciate how far this is. When you leave Uppington its the best part of 280k to get to the Kgalagadi, then its another 300k to Grootkolk. Forget mobile phone ,internet. Theres just you and the other 3 cabins. Its nicely situated with a clear view of a waterhole. Lions regularly arrive and it is renowned for this. A guy was recently on the loo when he discovered a male lion outside asleep next to him.
The cabins are of sandbag and canvas construction, much better than it sounds. They are beautifully looked after by the very helpful guard/warden. Kitchen outside which is fun, although when raining can be a problem. Fantastic to sit outside with g n t knowing there is noone else for miles. But we saw nothing in 2 days. Not an animal passed by. Heavy rains had speard out the wildlife. When we left we passed a car heading for Grootkolk. Couldnt believe we saw nothing. He had been before a number of times and seen lions etc.
Dont underestimate how far this is.
