Planning a week in November at Onrus. Haven't been there in 5 or 6 years. Has the security improved/deteriorated since then? There was a theft issue a while ago I believe. Chris?
Heard about the nice park from people who visited it some time ago. Conditions can actually change in a few days. Best would be to contact the park as well.
Cheers Heindrich! So I guess if there has been no recent bad press, things are good. It's a go then!
Long ago we used to camp there for SIX WEEKS at a time. Those were great days with our small kids. My children have grown up now and have their own and camped there for three Decembers. BUT. They will never go there again. The camp has been discovered by some elements who have changed the entire character of the camp. And management? Well, there was none at the time we visited our children.
It may be that the camp has changed, but at the moment I will rather visit any other camp.
Vat daai mooi hond van jou saam.
We stopped there when we did our tour for a week without any problems but that was also a few years ago.
Thanks peeps! Points to ponder....
Had a look at it in 2017 when scouting the area.
Wife thought it may be an option, me and myself got the "dop en dam" feeling, so not an option for us.
Some degree of neglect clearly visible then.
Ja dis 'n groot jammerte as 'n oord daai "dop en dam" konnetasie kry. Dan is dit net afdraande van daar af
groot bakleiery om van daai elemente onslae te raak.
Die groot ding is jy kan eers agter kom die kampeerders is van daai "elemente" nadat hulle op die staanplek ingetrek het. Dan eers moet jy plan maak. Teen daai tyd is hulle al 'n paar teen jou as een eienaar.
Hoop maar dit gaan beter met daai oord vorentoe.
Thanks manne! Decided to rather give Silwerstrand a bash. Can take woofie with during the week. Appreciate the feedback.
They built a security fence around the park probably about 10 years ago now and security improved. Was last there for a short stay over December about 3 years ago and was lovely. Did not have any issues with fellow campers. It would be sad if it has deteriorated now...
