Has anyone been to the campsite at Magoebaskloof ? I vaguely recollect reading an article about it recently, but cannot find it now. Also saw a post that access is not suitable for a caravan. Planning on overnighting there in June. Alternatively can anyone recommend a place to overnight between Letaba and Johannesburg. Will appreciate feedback. Many thanks.

Dankie. Het al daar gebly. Baie lekker - maar ek wil ‘n redelike duik in die rit Johannesburg toe maak.

Polokwane has a Municipal Game Park where you can camp, the facilities is aq bit rustic, but it is clean and there are good security, (police station opposite the entry), good value for money and about 5 minutes from a supermarket and it allows free entry into game reserve if you arrive early enough

Look up for detail on "GO Limpopo" or the municipal website. Remember every new site is an adventure

Hi, we have stayed at Magoebaskloof Rus Kamp. This is a small park, over looking the valley. It is also ok for an on road caravan. The other options are Coral Tree, Magoegaskloof Gateway, but only for off road caravans and trailers.

I am not aware of a camp site in Magoebaskloof.  There is other accomodation though. Have you tried internet?  There is also a private camp just north of the city called Boma in the Bush.  I have seen it and it looks neat and will probably be better than the municipal park.  Interestingly the municipal park was described as one of the best in the country when it was firts built, probably more than fourty years ago.  I have no idea what it looks like now- you do not often camp in your own town!

I was not aware that Magoebaskloof rest camp has camping facilities- good to know. Nice place though. Thanks Dieter.

I think they only have 6 stands (Magoebaskloof Ruskamp). next to the swimming pool. That is also where the ablition facilities are.

Frans

I was at Magoebaskloof Getaway about a year ago. Just drove in not camping. Yes it is a exstreemly steep downhill to the site. They have +/- 10 stands. When I was there, people camped with a Penta and a Fortuner 4lt 4X4. (previous model)They told me that they were camping there a lot, but obvious they got a strong 4X4. I would have loved to camp there. In the hart of Magoebaskloof.........it can only be FANTASTIC!!!!!

Personally, I will not be able to get my Swing in there. (that's a pity) and I think the Grand Vitara would battle to get it out especially if the "road" is wet. (Vitara is 4X4 with 4L but 2.4lt petrol)

Most of the other site's (except Magoebaskloof Ruskamp) cater for 4X4 trailer/van's. The road conditions is not good at all.

At least once a year we book ourselves into one of the Hotels there, either Magoebaskloof Hotel or Glenshield Hotel en then we spend a day driving through the plantations. (advisable to do it with a 4X4) This is the closest you can get to Paradise!!!!!

We just got back from Phalaborwa gate to Benoni in 6 hrs 45 min with at least a 30 min stop.
Lots of roadworks around Polokwani still.
We also went up the alternative pass to Haenertsburg. I wouldn't recommend it, lots of very sharp bends& logging trucks. Rather go Magoebaskloof pass.

I think you are refering to the Georges Valley road. I will not recommend this road to anyone. Even if you are not towing.

With all those sharp bends and truks you concentrate so hard to keep your vehicle on the road, you dont have time to look around. By the time you get to Tzaneen or Heanertsburg you are so exhausted you need a hollidaylaughing (and it's only 37km)
