We stayed in one of the two-bed chalets in the upper camp. The accomodation was sparkling clean, spacious, DSTV, braai place with stunning views of the montains.
No bedbugs - but one brazen baboon that suceeded in raiding four bread rolls from our kitchen whilst we were all in the chalet! Shut doors carefully when not in use!
I recommend swimming at the Cascades in the river by Mahai camp - an easy 1 or 2 km walk from the camp up river to a large swimming pool with big rocks to stretch out on.
The walking from Thendele is excellent with a large variety of day-walks on clearly-marked trails. As Thendele is about 1400m high, some walks have good views with relatively little climbing.
The shop had virtually no food (and nothing fresh) so bring whatever you want to cook with you.
