We have moved, now at Plettenburg Bay.

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Hope you have lots of brandewyn to keep you warm. That breeze that comes down the kloof over the water at night is bliksems cold. Otherwise, excellent choice of caravan park - enjoy.

Been there--done it. ( Talking about the bathroom )

So far has not been so bad, temp does drop a lot in the evening , dont get a lot of sun being in a valley  combined with a lot of tree cover. Certainly the best campsite we have had so far on this adventure.

Yes he did (at top of thread)... but there are 3 resorts/campsites cool (at least)

 

George we stayed at the timeshare at the top of the hill a couple of weeks before level 5 was implemented. We had a look around the Forever resort, were impressed with what we saw and bookmarked for future. Whereabouts in the resort are you camped?

hi richard, site no 81 on the river bank , its a paved site and is the largest site in the park , with the ablution block right behind us, got the vehicles and boat on with ease.

You cant book a site, its a first come first serve policy they have here [ like yellow sands ] When we booked in feb this year they said long termers could only stay on the back sites however when we got here they said we could have any site in the park we want which was fortunate as the back sites have very little grass and are quite small.

park is very quite at the moment, there's only a handful of caravans spread out on the front paved sites, and that suits us just fine.

George - don't be tempted to feed the Sacred Ibis birds. We made that mistake and before we knew it they were under our feet, making droppings all over the paving around the tent. Had to use water and broom quite a few times each day to clean their mess. We had no problems with monkeys during the week we were there in 2018.

Been there--done it. ( Talking about the bathroom )

Sacred Ibis

Hi George - here is pic of Sacred Ibis - member of the Hadeda family. The ones at Plett have lost their fear of man and will come right up to you for food. We have about 15 Hadedas that visit every day, but they only peck in the grass and fly away when we come near them. Most noisiest birds in the world.

One came around this afternoon, quite tame as in not afraid of people, we did not feed him but it still crapped all over the place, hopefully the rain we have at the moment will wash it away.

I suggest you talk to the office and find out about when their windy season commences.

The area next to the lagoon is called 'parachute alley' due to extreme wind being funnelled up the gorge from the sea. Once saw how that wind unearthed a dome tent, folding it up neatly, overturning it ready for the two young campers, who were out at the time, to come at dusk to find their camp packet up. They did load it as is in the back of their vehicle and went in search of a guesthouse.

Also watch the trees you are under. Some are waterberry. Once the fruit ripens, the birds will paint your van, tent, car and boat purple. 

That is why the longer term stays camp against the hill in the rear. Away from the wind and the birds, but then closer to the monkeys and massive spiders.

Stays an excellent beautiful place with affordable long stay tarifs. Enjoy it.

Nice to take the boat up the river and having a picknick on some of the sandbanks higher up. Should be good fishing there as well.

We did look at the back sites when we got here , but there is not much grass on them and they appeared damp , i guess with all the tree cover not much sun gets to them so they never really dry out. they also quite small aswell , would have been a squeeze getting all our stuff on one site, do able but a tight. And with all the rain we been having i think a paved site with drainage was the way to go, have made a note of the trees you mentioned, not sure when the berry season is, nothing on them now.

Not very full at all however there is always traffic passing through daily, mostly those off road trailers , they set up for a day or two then move on. there's always about ten vans in the park at any given time.

I think the berry season starts in spring and lasts to November.

The park staff should be able to confirm when this is.

Untill when do you plan on camping at Forever Plett?

It is such a nice setting that one tents to alter plans to stay longer, especially at the discounted long term tariff.

Enjoy.
