Advice on Addo accommodation

Hi everyone

I'm planning a trip that will include Addo in October/November. We have a 4x4 and will be self-driving, staying in s/c accommodation.

From what I understand, ALL accommodation is outside the game-viewing area, but the main camp seems to be the best bet as its closest to the game viewing area for easy access/dawn drives etc. So these are my questions:

1) Are rondavels the best place to stay if we want to be able to enjoy the waterhole?

2) Is there any point in moving around to other camps? I'm struggling to understand the lure of Matyholweni Rest Camp if its 40kms from the gate?

3) We'd also like to do the Zuurberg section - can we do this as a day trip if we stay at the main camp, or should we be staying elsewhere for a night?
