Dit is baie mooi daar. Was so paar jaar terug daar en het sommer by back packers oorgeslaap. Spot goedkoop.

Rare breed, we are camping at Swallow tail presently. Facilities are fine , ablutions pretty simple with 2 toilets, 2 showers and 3 washbasins in each of 2 ablutions. The level sites are few and a van will probably need leveling wedges to get it level on most sites but it is well grassed.

Thanks for feedback, maybe while you are there, I can highly recommend a day trip to Great Fish River Nature Reserve , just outside Alice. They do have dead cheap accommodation, but no camping.

Maybe pop in to have a look.

At Hogsback they are removing alien trees to replant the indiginous yellowood in order to recover the habitat for the Cape Parrot.
