We were not in unit 310. The unit we were in had a double bed. They told me only two adults and two children were allowed in my unit. We didn't have children. There were two long sofas which would easily sleep someone without pulling out. I don't know if they were sofa sleepers or not. There was a shower as well as bathtub. The sofas were in a large living room area.

Summer is always an awesome time to visit that specific area of South Africa. You will definitely need a car...Drive from Sudwala Lodge to Kruger National Park = 86 km +- 1h30 minutes. Start with the Panorama route...awesome..so many things to do and places to visit.
