We had fantastic viewing and just being in the wild is so amazing and third bridge was amazing to stay. We came from Maun's side towards Kasane and stayed in these great national parks. Were very dry at the moment and our convoy was amazing sitings.
Beautiful campsite. Well maintained and clean. Excellent toilet facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. You can hire a boat to see the Okavango Delta and animals in their natural habitat. About 5 hours drive from Maun in a beautiful scenery.
Third Bridge was our first campsite we visited on our roundtrip through Botswana. To get there from Maun we had to drive through deep sand, got stuck once despite lowered tire pressure and 4x4. When the car gets with the belly on the sand there is not much you can do about. Luckey for us after a few minutes other safari vehicles passed and pulled us out. Campsite is clean as are the ablutions. Some maintenance needed here and there as we experienced throughout most state maintained campsite on our roundtrip.
We have stayed at Third Bridge before but not in the en-suite tents which are lovely. Freshly made beds and hot and cold running water were a definite luxury here and we enjoyed a two night stay. Actually, having a permanent pitch is ideal, because it means you don’t have to fold a roof tent before going on a game drive. As a result we were up and about very early and well away from human movement almost at first light. Third Bridge Camp is especially well situated to get into other parts of Moremi and can be quite busy as a result. However, and we found this throughout our three week trip, most people are away and asleep by 2000 ish because the sun rises by 0600 and many people are getting ready to move from 0500. As a result, you make an assumption that it will be fairly noisy, and it just isn’t. It was great to see Camp Site 8 again, we stayed for three nights nearly ten years ago, and it had barely changed. Being in an ensuite tent however meant that we didn’t have to make the trip to the ablution block. We enjoyed our second stay at Third Bridge, there is now a small tuck shop which is a nice touch. We enjoyed several cans of cream soda, a flashback to childhood. Also, it was good to remake acquaintance with Baby, a large male elephant which lives around the area and entertains himself with (mostly?) mock charges. In fact, this site is very susceptible to visiting wildlife, we had several very close encounters including one with an elephant within yards of the veranda. This is Africa and we loved the proximity of these incredible animals, but, be warned. Would we go again. Yes, definitely.…
We stayed at a rented tent with shower facilities for two nights. The camp may not be the most beautiful in the world, but you come here to see wildlife and not a neat campingsite. The visit took place after a long ongoing period of draught. During the day you will see springbok, jackal and the occasional elephant, but at night the area really comes to life: When sitting in front of our tent we had begging hyenas within touching distance, grazing hippos passing by, dangerously close and in the middle of the night a large group of elephants were eating the branches from the trees directly next to the tents. These ladies and calfs were close enough to touch.
