Electrifying

Watch out for the electric fence at the entrance!

All san parks accommodation need a revamp - this place was looking tired - but still comfortable.

Very busy camp but fine, only stayed there to get access to Bitterpan.

Good and expected standard for a big rest cam

Big camp and the experience reflected this.

slight disappointment that our room had been given to other residents because we were later in arriving than them we therefore did not have a good view or as good as we might

Nossob Rest Camp review

We spent one night at Nossob - and again the accommodation is fair, but basic. The location of this camp makes it an ideal stop as you travel around the park - and the Carnivores exhibition is really interesting.

The camp offered night drives - so we decided to join the trip that night. Unfortunately, the guide we had was fairly inexperienced, and did not have a pair of binoculars with him (which meant that a lot of the animal and bird identification was done by the passengers!). Then - when it got dark - instead of using the spotlight himself to sweep for animals - he handed 2 spotlights to passengers in the jeep and he sat in the front with the driver! Consequently, we were disappointed with this activity (and hence the low score below).

We chose to self cater at this camp - and the kitchen facilities were more than adequate for us to knock up a good dinner! Again, the shop is limited - but useful for picking up things like frozen meat, and treats such as sweets and wine! The waterhole is nicely situated - although there was limited activity when we were here.

Nossob Rest Camp review

A typical, basic, government rest camp.

Just a base from which to explore the Park.

Good basic camp

More basic than Twee Rivieren but excellent location in centre of park for self drive activities.

Minimal provided activities.

Friendly staff.
Clean basic chalet adequately provide for self catering.

Shop minimal except for basics but OK for remote location
