We camped at Senyati for 2 nights. 4th & 5th Oct. Situated in a beautifully quiet valley 2km off the Kazangula road and only about 11km from Kasane . Well appointed campsites with Braai stands, Thatched shelters with electricity, food preparation area toilet and shower room.
We had stayed the night before at Nata so arrived by 11.30 in the morning. Thank you Lulu for organising a wonderful river trip commencing 2.45 that afternoon. Plenty of time to set up camp, have some cold beers and a bite to eat before driving through on dirt to Kasane and another whole day ahead of us.
The water hole at Senyati is superb. They pump 3,000l per hour 24/7 to keep it full and a constant procession of elephants visit 24 hrs a day. We spent the next day on site relaxing and observing the wildlife & bird life. Very relaxing after many days driving before facing the long drive back to Gaborone. I only discovered the underground hide on the last evening which gives you a spectacular close up view of the wildlife at the waterhole. See photos.
What a wonderful place. We will be visiting again at Christmas assuming they have space available
