As die Here wil gaan ons bietjie wegbreek by Yellow Sands in die Junie skoolvakansie. Enige ander wat ook daar gaan wees in hierdie tyd?

Suid-Vrystaat groete.

Stefan.

Sou daar gewees het, maar vertrek Maandag 10/06/2019 vir toer deur Moz, Malawi, Zambia en Bots.

Geniet dit, puik oord. Raak nou net bietjie koeler wanneer dir son sak...

WOW Campervan, dit klink darem na 'n spiekeries-toer! Lekker man, ek hoop daai 3L trek die wa van sy as af. Ek was onlangs na Chongoni om 'n sending seminaar daar te gaan aanbied saam met 'n paar ander.  Mooi plek. Moenie vergeet om foto's te stuur nie.

Do a day trip to Trennerys hotel via Kei Mouth onto the ferry , it’s 90km away, last 10km is very good gravel surface doable in a platkar . You can do Trevor’s Trails ( the gates) as well as lunch at the hotel. 

Hopefully you will enjoy it.

how low does the temp get at yellow sands in winter?

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

George

Just as a guess I would say that it will seldom go below 10*C.

Daytime temperatures hover between 20 - 22*C.

Some days better, some worse...

Danie

Ons doen lang/ver toere buiteland, sonder die ongerief om te sleep...

Ons was Maart/April daar n baie mooi plek om te kamp ek glo die tyd van jaar kan die aande nogal koud word aangesien 80% van staanplekke onder n boom is

 Ons het regs onder die kantoor gestaan daar het jy n mooi uitsig oor see

Daar is 2km grondpad na afdraai wees maar op uitkyk vir POTHOLES nogal heelwat

Daar is ook n winkel kompleks 10km vanaf kamp met n SPAR

Geniet die tyd daar ons het

Vorige winters het ek die weervoorspellings altyd dop gehou en lyk of die nagte gemiddeld so 15 is en dae in die 20's. Ek dink dit is 'n uitsondering as dit onder 10 val.

Dit is ons eerste winter daar, maar vir ons Vrystaters is enige ander winter matig.

Ons was al 'n April en 'n Mei maand asook 'n Oktober al daar, en dit was heerlik. Ek het net eers 'n week bespreek vir as die weer te sleg is, maar beplan om so 12 nagte te bly.

Hi George,

When in Port Alfred we normally stay at Medolina.

It is impeccably kept with a dam and plenty of bird life,

green lawns and clean ablutions.

Not as cost effective as Yellow Sands, but a lot neater.

You will get a better rate for longer stays, but not the best rate.

Probably compares well to a lot of the KZN Parks,

but best to phone or send an email to get first hand information.

THIS PARK IS ALSO FOR SALE IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED, OWNER TIRED AFTER 25 YEARS.

We use it as a one night stop over, going south or returning north.

Better priced in that region, would be something like Cannon Rocks (further south), but there is little going on in that area, out of holiday season,

with no shopping complexes or anything else close by.

We enjoyed van Staaden's Holiday resort (west of Port Elizabeth), which is also out of the way, but has a big Bay West Mall about 20 km from the resort.

Jeffreys Bay is also close to that, but expensive, being a holiday town.

The Caravan Park there is also a bit run down.

Gam Toos Ferry Caravan Park also looks quite nice, but does not have much shelter.

The Willows in Port Elizabeth is okay, but it is windy out there.

The most sheltered are probably those with the private ablutions.

Hope you enjoy your stay...
