Kom ons kyk of die lede wil saamspeel. Plaas n foto van n oord wat jy besoek het, maar die foto moet n leidraad gee waar jy kamp. Lede raai dan waar dit is.

Hi Harv. Not sure about that camping spot but the second photo is at Velddrif. We had a "lekker kuier" on that stoep and also bought some bokkoms. They were still wet and I had quite an issue trying to dry them during the rest of our tour. Wife was also not much impressed with the "beautiful" smell that was lingering around in the breeze. West Coast is fantastic!

Correct Kurper! Die Kakpraters' stoep at Bokkoms Laan. Had milk crates with cushions as seats with a view on the Berg River while sinking a few cold ones. What a life! We usually camp at Stywelyne up the road at Laaiplek, about 3kms away at the river/harbour mouth. Good on yer!

No. Vis Vlekhuis is in Laaiplek at the river mouth opposite Stywelyne resort. Bokkoms Laan is the little gravel road along the river, home to Ek en Djy Vissery with its stoep, pub/shop and art gallery and Die Vishuis, a restaurant about 100m further along....idyllic life with birds and boats moseying past regularly.

The 1st one is The Baths in Citrusdal. Set it a ravine , it has a history of Dutch settlers who discovered the hot springs while exploring north from Cape Town in the 1700s. Chalets and campsites are dotted along the gravel road up to the Dwarsgebou, pictured here. There are Victorian apartments and more modern chalets with private and public spa baths. Every Wednesday, the owners provide fires for the folk to braai together and have dancing on the patio seen in the photo. A must visit!

Jin is reg! Die oord verhuur daai battery scooters uit....gaan dan uit op n begeleide toer en wilds besigtiging saam met oord eienaars. Regtig iets om aan te beveel...interesante veld kennis wat eienaars deel op daai toer. Ek dink toer is 2.5 tot 3 ure lank

Agreed Jan. Our second ever Caravan camping was behind the bushes on the left by that electrical box. Return from Scottburgh we stood at first stand on left by the gate post. Our retirement tour return we stood in front of those bushes on the left on pic. Per my trip report I touched the other gate post on the 'exit'.

Not a bad punt in the dark! Never camped in Natal. A final tour to KNP in the relatively near future will include The Last English Outpost! Itinerary loosely planned on the way up includes MacNicol's, Tugela, Kwa-Rie and Drakensville, Dragon Peaks and Silverstreams on the way down. Are any of these places no-go resorts or not recommended by Natalians? Is the trip from Pietermaritzberg to Kokstad okay to drive? We will be using a 2-man tent and driving a 1200 Picanto! Any advice? 

Soet wees!

Nope. It's the little dam at De Rust Hammanskraal. Stopped over en route to Kruger in 2010. Straight up N1 to Louis Trichardt, then 90 degrees right to Punda Maria. Major schlep from Cape Town for someone who isn't big on driving!

Same here....hate driving. We had a booking at Stormriver mouth for December 2020. We canceled it due to the long times on the road.....4 days. At the end we went to Dolphin....7 hours.

Don't understand the national infatuation with Storms. The prices doubled overnight years back as SANparks cashed in. Windy and exposed. No shade. We are tent campers. Have only spent one night there. In 2011 the campsites with electricity shot up to R275. The Kruger campsites were R150! Strandfontein, Leentjiesklip, Ganzekraal, Miller's Point, Onrus, Jongensfontein, Hartenbos, Wolfkop and Buffels Bay. All coastal sites with seaviews or virtually situated in the water. Some of those places would charge a half to a third of Tsitsikamma. Garden Route is lovely but is beginning to fleece the punters in my opinion. Factoring the escalating rates along with a thousand km round trip, it's getting a bit steep, even at pensioner's rates (book on wife's name as I still have 4 years to 60!). Will use Glentana, Lake Pleasant or Woodbourne as stopovers on my last trek to Oom Paul se tuin.

Agree with you, Harv (Ian) - StormsRiver, although very scenic, is not worth the high fee ( plus conservation fee, plus 1% levy ). I would rather camp at Plett and do a one day trip to StormsRiver if need be.
Also found the caravan sites along the sea-front ( which cost more ) are smaller than the others and some are difficult to get into with larger vans.    My 2c worth.

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

Whichever resorts have survived by the time we can camp again are going to have to be reasonable with their rates and not try to make up 6-9 months' income. Though with half the options left for the same number of visitors, it'll come down to who is prepared to pay the premium. We'll have to book a year in advance just to get a spot! Either way, there's going to be a whole lot of shaking down going on! Eish! That Natal resort looks 5 star. Come on guys...have a stab. Looks out of my league....
