Has anyone on the forum been there ? I'm looking at the road conditions from the R399 to the campsite. Seems to be a section of gravel from just before the Movaria Bridge over the Berg river to the site. 

Question - is the gravel section in reasonable condition ?

Hi Brian.

The road is no issue. We go there quite often and have never had any issues.

Can highly recommend it.

Hi Brian,

Pleasure!

We are booked there again from the beginning of September so will probably miss you.

I camped there in April - what an awesome camp and now one of our favourites. Just don't make the same mistake as I did (reward for not reading the directions properly).

On the website, it says explicitly not to use the Koringberg turnoff . I just followed the GPS and unfortunatly went that route. Nothing wrong with the route, except that it takes you through farms (on a dirt road (I think about 8-10km). I only managed about 5-10km/h speed. Going back we took the R399 (about maybe 1 km gravel road).

 

Refer below for the directions.

"When on the N7 from the Cape side, don't take the Koringberg turnoff (The GPS will try to take you that way) - stay on the N7 until you reach the Velddrif R399 turnoff (left), or if you miss it you can ride on a few kilometers and take the De Hoek turnoff (Merges with the R399).

Just before you reach the mountains along the R399, turn left into the Moravia turnoff."

I go there a few times a year midweek as it's a very well run park. Another tip is not to take the first turnoff on the N7 coming from Cape Town but take the De Hoek turnoff a few km further on. It cuts out a bit of bad road.

Guys thanks for the tips on the road conditions, we have decided to go to Kliphoek (Velddrift) and from there directly over to Nieuwoutville with perhaps an overnight at Rondeberg instead of Kleine Paradys.

All among our favourites as well. I have done YouTube videos of all of them. Not sure how to share it here.

Alex, quite simple, right click or hold screen to get "link" hit "link", enter the share URL that You Tube offers into the URL space and on the next line write something like "link to video of ...."

Thanks Alex, I have seen your Kleine Paradys videos but not the Kliphoek one - although we have been there before and know what to expect. Will look at the Kliphoek one with my next batch of data tomorrow๐Ÿ˜.

I got a notification from Rondeberg yesterday that they have a promotion on. Stay three nights and get 50% discount. 

Probably fuel price resulting in less bookings.

I will enquire by them and see if they have availability for the date we will be travelling through.
