I read other forums that there is a lot of loud music until early hours of the morning, mostly from places just outside the reserve which is not under their control and the owners are not interested in curtailing the activities.

However this seems to be disturbing the resorts inside. This could have a negative effect on those resorts as the campers are already saying that they will start avoid going there.

Anyone here been there this long weekend and what was your experience like ?

Hi Brian, We went camping at Dinokeng Holiday resort earlier this year and we had no issues. That said it was over a normal weekend and the resort is a bit further away from any settlements. 

STOP and smell the camp fire :)

Het dit ook nog nie ondervind by Dikoneng nie.

Waar dit wel baie lawaai is by Dube en Hartbeeshoek.

Brian - I don't know whether you refer to the resorts in the Dinokeng Reserve in general or to the Dinokeng Resort (in Dinokeng Reserve). However, if I look at the 31 ratings given to Dinokeng Resort on this web-page, it gets a good rating in general with only one thumbs-down and an average of 4 out of 5 for security, ablutions, sites & leisure. For "Value" it has an average of 5 out 5 (based on 31 ratings). And the most comments are very positive. To me it sounds like a nice resort to stay.

I only have experience with Almega Caravan Park (not within the borders of the Dinokeng Reserve but adjacent to it) where we stayed for 2 nights on our way to Kruger earlier this year. What a fantastic resort!!!!

I have read that the following resorts have had issues:

  1. Willem’s Rus
  2. De Rust

The noise is coming from Lazy River Push Pub which is apparently outside the reserve.

Sound travels more at night and it seems to me the closer you are to the gate the worse it is. We have been camping at Denokeng Resort a number of times and also didnt experence any problems there.

Die oorde binne reservaat waar ons al gekamp het was Willemsrus waar ons nie probleme gehad het nie, Tshikwalo het ons dit ligtelik gehoor. Elephant waterhole was dit ook lekker stil. Die ander oorde waar ons gekamp het was Dinokeng Resort en Almega.....maar hulle is nie in die reservaat self nie. Dinokeng Resort was baie stil, maar by Almega is die kamp area te naby aan die deurgangspad....baie lawaaierig. Van hierdie boonste 5 oorde was Almega vir my die mees lawaaierigste....maar dan nie lokasie musiek nie, maar busse, taxis en karre

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Ek het die musiek lawaai net by De Rust ondervind.

Die pad naby Almega is in die dag besig en het ons nie in die aand gepla nie.

Ons kon ook nie kla oor lawaai op die pad verby Almega nie - dag of nag. Ons was op 'n Saterdag- en Sondagaand daar. Ek kan net getuig dat dit 'n puik kampplek is. Ongetwyfeld een van die netjieste kampeerplekke wat ek ooit besoek het.

Ons was by beide en sal glad nie die plekke aanbeveel nie. Tshikwalo is 'n puik oord met puik fasiliteite. Die oordbestuurder is ingestel op dienslewering. Jy voel ook veilig daar.
