Thulamela visits can also be arranged from Pafuri Camp in the Makuleke CNP, provided you are staying there of course. The advantages are several:

- it is only short drive from camp, over the bridge and around the corner, so to speak.

- tours can be arranged any day and at very short notice (so you can take the weather into account).

- no worries about getting together enough people, the minimum is one.

Thulamela is rather nice, although mostly for the views in my opinion. I've seen more impressive ruins. Besides, the elephants have been busy kicking down stone walls, so SANParks needs to send a team up to fix them.

Unfortunately Johan most of us cannot afford the private concession and we camped at Punda with the pensioner discount So after all the positive feedback from Sanparks personel on the forum we were so looking forward to going . So make sure anyone wanting to go please check first .

Before Christmas, Pafuri Camp was running a R800 special for SA residents. Not a bad deal. Might be worth keeping an eye out for such offers.

Is the tour affected by the floods and is it worth the R240 per person ?

Nyala Drive is still closed, but they may perhaps make an exception for SANParks game viewing vehicles. Thulamela is on a hill (people must have known a thing or two about floods in those days), so not likely to have been much affected.

Worth R240? That's debatable. Where I live, every second person has a stone wall around his property, so I do not necessarily see any need to pay to look at even more stone walls.
