Hendrick - Bontle in Marakele is nog op my wenslysie.

Om terug te kom na Andanté - dit was aanvanklik deur Johan Stemmet (van Noot vir Noot-faam) begin, maar hy het dit mettertyd verkoop. Dit is 'n netjiese kleinerige kampeerplek. Ons het vir twee aande daar oorgestaan, op pad terug Boland toe na 'n lang kuier by Eiland Spa. Dit was middel van die week (buite-seisoen) en ons was die enigste kampeerders.

Ons het nie heeltemal op ons gemak gevoel nie. Met ons aankoms was die gemotoriseerde hek buite werking. Te ek die nommer op die hek skakel, is ek meegedeel dat die hek nie werk nie en dat ek dit net moet oopskuif. Dadelik het daar rooi liggies in my kop aangeskakel t.o.v. veiligheid - enigeen kan dan mos maar net die hek oopstoot.

Die uiters vriendelike ontvangsdametjie het genoem dat daar snags 'n veiligheidswag aan diens is - wat ons egter nooit gesien het nie. Wat 'n bietjie ontstellend was, was dat daar die volgende oggend langs die swembad 'n yslike panga gelê het - die veiligheidswag s'n of wie s'n? En die volgende dag was daar niemand by Ontvangs toe ek wou gaan navraag doen nie. Daardie aand het ek byna my nek afgedraai van al in die rondte kyk terwyl ek buite staan en braai.

Nee - dit was nie lekker om so ongerus t.o.v. jou veiligheid te voel nie. Toe ons die dag vertrek, stop ek weer by die hek om dit oop te skuif - maar die hek staan vas. Ek bel toe weer die nommer op die hek en ek word ingelig dat die battery net pap was en die vorige dag vervang is. Die hek wrd toe vir ons oopgemaak.

Dus - om op te som. Andanté was 'n netjiese plekkie, maar ek sal nie weer terugkeer nie. Dalk moet 'n mens maar daarnatoe gaan as deel van 'n groep en wel oor 'n naweek. Daar is pragtige wild op die plaas.

Dis jammer dat n plek so n houding inneem. Ons Kerk het al oorweeg om daar n gemeente naweek deur te bring. Hulle tariewe het goed in ons skoene geval. Ek help gewoonlik met besprekings, maar met sulke terugvoering sal ek dit nie meer kan aanbebeveel nie. Dis jammer, want soos ek lees kan dit n puik plek wees met baie potensiaal.

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Julle is skerp. Nearly right Harv.

Blydepoort dit is.

Die uitsigte van die oord is asemrowend mooi. Swembad te koud vir my tot in die somer. Al wat lastig was, was die bobbejane.

Swadini is the one in the valley is it not? I do remember researching it 10 years ago but we never got there. After the Pilgrim's Rest stay, we planned on seeing the the sights but only did the Pinnacle, God' Window and the Berlin Falls. We were getting skinned for every stop we made so coxed the planned Swadini idea and began the home trip south. Heaven knows what the tourists are paying now. On our trip and approach via Natal, would Ohrigstad route to Swadini be recommended? Then early entry to the park via Orpen gate? Is the Shoe House still standing on that route? Really regret not making the effort last time round.....

Onder?....seker 6ft onder? 😂lol.

Ek het maar n vrees vir sulke aktiwiteite....miskien omdat ek altyd by die gewigs limiet is. Maar ek geniet om die adrenalien behoeftiges dop te hou....kan ure daarna kyk hoe elkeen verskillend reageer

As far as I know The Shoe is still open. The roads in that region around Lydenburg are not the best so caution is advised. My recommendation is the scenic route via Sabie, Graskop, Bourkes Luck to Blydepoort. From one of the view points one can nearly see Swadini down below. A boat trip on the dam is a must.

Adrenalin sports not in my ballpark. Always been scared of heights! What a weenie I am! Managed Storms River bridge but the water below was perhaps a psychological help. Dreading Oribi Gorge but must do it. No swings or catapults for me though thanks!

Ek moet baie versigtig antwoord. In kort kom dit daarop neer dat ek geensins sal oorweeg om oor 'n naweek daarnatoe te gaan nie. Sowat drie jaar gelede het ons besluit om 'n mid-week breek daarnatoe te neem. Nog steeds byna op my rug geval.

Dié foto's van my is verlede jaar op 17 Apr geneem. Ek het besluit om die R43 tussen Worcester en Villiersdorp uit te skakel a.g.v. van baie hobbelrige dele in die pad wat nie lekker sleep nie. Dit is die normale roete wat ons neem om by die N1 aan te sluit.

Toe ry ek 'n ompad via Stellenbosch en deur Hugenote-tonnel na Worcester. Dit was nét te ver om by my ongeskrewe beleid van 'n maksimum van 500km per dag te bly. Toe staan ons die een nag by Goudini Spa oor. Ek was nogal aangenaam verras, maar sal maar 'n langer tydperk daar met groot omsigtigheid aanpak.

Dat dit egter netjies is, is gewis.

Hoe vol is daai plekke oor n naweek.

Dink lang naweke is hulle vol bespreek.

Wat is hul tariewe per nag as dit so netjies daar is.

As jy weet vertel ons bietjie meer van die plek asb.

'n Netjiese oorstaanplek op pad noorde toe. As jy 'n varswater-hengelaar is, kan jy dalk langer hier wil staan.

 

Lyk na moeilike een. Watter provinsie?

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Is hy daai. Ons het al by 3 geleenthede daar oorgestaan met die wa. Netjiese plek. Lucy van Dyk is 'n uitstekende gasvrou. 

Hulle ablusie-fasiliteite is baie basies, maar skoon, netjies en voldoende. Lieflike grasbedekte staanplekke.

Die foto's wat ek hierbo geplaas het is op 25 Apr verlede jaar geneem toe die Rietrivier in vloed was.

Dit is regtig 'n oord wat ek met vrymoedigheid kan aanbeveel. Dit is die plek waar Oom Jeep van tyd tot tyd gaan instaan as Philip en Lucy bietjie wil wegbreek.

Hulle ander akkommodasie-fasiliteite is blykbaar nogal netjies. My suster-hulle het eenkeer in 'n chaket oorgebly. Ek het ook verneem dat die Kimberliete nogal lief is om oor naweke daar te kom kuier/hengel.

Ek het eenkeer by hulle klein restaurant geëet saam met die manne van GWK by Modderrivier. Philip het daardie middag vir ons uitstekende 'steaks' voorgesit.

Hoe vol is daai plekke oor n naweek.

Dink lang naweke is hulle vol bespreek.

Wat is hul tariewe per nag as dit so netjies daar is.

As jy weet vertel ons bietjie meer van die plek asb.

 

 

Jin, ek vertrou ek het sommige van jou vrae reeds beantwoord. Ekself vermy Goudini Spa oor naweke en nog te meer oor langnaweke. Dit is net eenvoudig té bedrywig - té naby aan Kaapstad - en té luidrugtig, veral om en in die swembaddens.

Wat die tariewe aanbetref, kan ek nie uit die vuis uit sê nie, maar dit is beskikbaar op hulle webblad.

Maar mooi en netjies - beslis!

Lekker lag ek nou oor die Kimberliete.

Ons het al voorheen daar tuisgegaan in een van die opgeknapte chalets en was baie tevrede. Ook in die week daar gebly toe dit redelik stil was. Hoop net ATKV bestaan nog teen Mrt.

Dis hy daai!👌

Een van ons gunstelinge. Oord het golf karretjies wat hulle uitverhuur om wildsbesigtiging te doen. Heerlike Putt putt bane, lapa met pool tafels en darts ens. Kroeg vir die dorstiges en lekker restaurant wat oor swembaddens uitkyk. Heelwat ander tipes verblyf vir die ouens wat wil cheat en in n chalet wil bly. Ek wil weer soontoe gaan....wag net vir die padwerke om klaar te maak.....laas my 1.5 uur trip n 3 uur trip gemaak. Kan oord met n oop hart aanbeveel

As jy praat van padwerke - het dit betrekking op die Brits-Thabazimbipad? Ek het etlike jare gelede koringproewe in Koedoeskop-omgewing besoek - en toe was daardie pad plek-plek in 'n skrikwekkende toestand.

Ja....dink daar is 3 of 4 GO/STOP op daai gedeelte tussen Brits en Kokoriba. Dis n goeie ding dat hulle die pad oordoen, want soos jy sê....die pad was in n patetiese toestand. Dis net jammer dat hul so tydsaam is....hulle moes al laasjaar klaar gewees het, maar ploeter steeds voort. Ons het intussen by Kokoriba en Thaba Morula gekamp, en beide oorde sê dat die padwerke hulle besoeker getal vreeslik negatief beinvloed. Dit behoort seker weer ekstra mense te lok as dit klaar is, want ek glo daar was reeds al paar manne wat daai pad vermy het voor padwerke oor die toestand....afgebrokkelde sykante

Agree with Chris wholeheartedly. Have yet to stay at Goudini. Recce'd the joint on the way home from a stay elsewhere. Midweek is on option for sure. Holidays and weekends it's a circus there....

Harv - no I have not posted photos on the resort, but (although I have not been there for quite a number of years) I guess it is Dwarskersbos. I've only been there once, but at least 15 years ago. But the rondavels on the one photo look familiar.

Get in Chris! Yeah. Stayed the one night on the way up to Kgalagadi. Really is terrific for a longer stay even. Fishing there I lost abou t3-4 hooks, lures and mielie bomb springs. There must be a serious drop off or a multitude of rocks below as I got snagged on almost every retrieval......

Dit klink my selfs die ouens in die noordelike dele is bietjie stomgeslaan met my laaste foto. Ek het gedog die afdak-staanplek sal 'n "give-away" wees, maar dit blyk die manne van die noorde gaan kamp nie juis naby Parys nie.

Dit is Weltevrede - teen die Vaalrivier aan die Noordwes Provinsie se kant van die rivier.

Ons het verlede jaar besluit om vir 'n verandering die N12-roete noorde toe te ry - vandaar ons oorstaan by Riverside Country Club, suid van Kimberley. Een van die forumiete op Kampforum (Lapskag) het op my navraag van 'n verdere geskikte oorstaanplek, aanbeveel dat ek Eastco Parys of Weltevrede moet oorweeg.

Ons het vanaf Riverside op die N12 gebly tot in Potchefstroom. Terloops - dorpe soos Bloemhof en Wolmaranstad is nie juis 'n plesier om deur te ry met 'n karavaan agterna nie. Die toestand van die hoofstrate is haglik. Die N12 is 'n baie stiller roete as die N1, veral wat vragmotors aanbetref, maar die gebrek aan geskikte stilhouplekke (bedoelende lekker vulstasies met netjiese toiletgeriewe) is 'n negatiewe punt. Die pad tussen dorpe sleep egter baie gemaklik.

In Potch het ons weggeswaai Parys toe - 'n netjiese pad, maar ons het seker maar verkeerde dag en tyd daarlangs gery - 'n Vrydag namiddag. Die pad was nogal besig en 'n groot (stadige) vragmotor op die redelik kronkelende pad, deur mooi omgewing, wat die verkeer laat opdam het, was nogal 'n frustrasie. Maar die netheid van Weltevrede het daarvoor vergoed.

Maybe my last contribution was too cryptic. Chapman's Peak In Noordhoek. The beer keg lawnmower braais were the clue. Quite a creative idea. Hope they survive the lockdown but fear it may be game over for them....

Harkerville Forest Lodge, just before Plett. Turn right at the Sasol petrol station off the N2. About 800m and you're there. Well played guys. I'll keep my eye on this thread but have no more pics to post....what a ride and some good info to keep in mind. Ta.

Well played Leon! Forest Lodge it is.... Koi pond at the restaurant, pool and a boma for get togethers etc. Stayed in a chalet for a night during a winter vac up the Garden Route in July at low rates. Was impressed. Camping on the lawns available if you want an overnighter during a road trip...

HM: Driving not my favourite hobby. Only been up to Kruger once 10 years ago and never done Natal. Almost on retirement and we are tenters. Even scaled down to a Picanto from a Chev Utility 1400! With the schlep and cost, have been working a route to include Eastern Cape, Natal and Kruger and the sights in about a 40 day period. Elvis will not be on the trip with us....just the 2 man tent. These days only camp locally within 200 kms or 3 hours driving from Cape Town, Sundays to Fridays. No kids, weekend warriors or expensive rates...n Mens raak oud and I'm a weenie! Kan nie meer die punch vat nie...

Yip! Lake Umuzi. Die woonwa staanplekke was in wording toe ons daar was. Die plaaske klub het 'n saamtrek die naweek gehou en ons is sommer ingetrek by hul aktiwiteite. Lekker gekuier saam met die Secunda mense.

Ek sien op die internet die plek lyk nou mooi met gras en 'n swembad.

Kleinman - Die een foto laat my baie dink aan Rondeberg langs die Bulshoekdam by Clanwilliam, maar die ander foto lyk nie of dit Rondeberg kan wees nie. Of is dit by twee verskillende oorde geneem. Die een wat my boul (daar tussen die bome) laat my amper dink aan een van die Sederberg-oorde??

Spot on Richard. Een van my gunstelinge in die wildtuin. Ons het verlede jaar (1 Mei) een nag in Shingwedzi oorgestaan op pad Punda toe. Na 8 aande in Punda was ons toe vir die volgende 10 aande in Shingwedzi gewees. Ek was veronderstel om die afgelope Mei vir 3 aande in 'n chalet in Shingwedzi te wees. Maar nou ja ..... het julle al gehoor van Covid-19?😊😊

Nou's dit uitgestel na eerskomende November (ook 3 aande elk in Mopani en Bateleur). Ook reeds 'n kampeer-bespreking vir volgende Mei - waaronder 6 aande in Shingwedzi. Sien só uit daarna. Covid-19????🙄🙄

Richard - ek kyk nou op my selfoon en die foto's vertoon maar klein hierop - sal later vanoggend op die laptop gaan loer. Maar dit wat ek nou sien lyk vir my baie "Maroela"-agtig?

Nee - nou dat ek op my 'laptop' na die Richard se foto's kyk, besef ek dit is beslis nie Maroela nie, maar ek sukkel nog om te identifiseer watter kamp dit wel is.

Croc Bridge? Close to the Total garage in the background maybe. 2010 they were busy with the new bridge and gate so it's just a punt as the layout may have changed....

Paul is correct.

During our one year tour we camped at over 40 campsites and Tsipise was one of our least liked places. But then I should take into consideration we had just exited Kruger after six weeks of heavan.

I posted a reply....it has vanished.

Spot on Ian. We camped at the entrance gate to the camp site, with petrol station in back ground. Sighting board and shop to the left of fire with new park gate behind the fire.

 

Tshipise, we had heard that it gets full in winter. In October we were down to 2 campsites one morning. When we returned in the evening there were 30 plus campervans next to us.

Chris, jy is reg. Ongelooflik. Die stand is langs die draad in die naaste hoek van die kampeering. Die privaat kampeering staanplek is net agter my. Die stand was toegewys aan die electrisien van Polokwane wat die kampeereing se electrifiseering gedoen het. Ek het hom een keer ontmoet en ek kon daar staan maar daar is geen view van die diere nie. Hy is kenelik oorlede. Ons het twaalf nagte daar gestaan.

Well played Chris! That pic didn't give you much to go on. When we arrived there for 4 days, all we were able to grab was a stick tree site in the middle. Granted we only got there about 11 or so after a slow mosey down from Letaba. Proves the proverb: the early bird catches the worm. I never learn! My maxim is the 2nd mouse gets the cheese, which is only practical in certain circumstances!

Brilliant Chris. Yes Harv. It is the private camping stand and then the Stanley Guest House. The one that costs a month of camping in Satara. :))

I like it there. That stand I had was hot but it was private and open to the game. I have booked for 12 nights for Sept 2020 but the regulations are causing uncertainty. I also have 12 nights at L. Sabie.

All the camps in Kruger are special in their own way. Tsendze & Balule are my favourits but my 747 is a problem in them. In Tsendze only 28 & 29 are suitable.

The water trough in front of Stanley house was the site of a buffalo kill by a pack of hyenas while we were there! Drowned the poor buff in the water and spent 4 hours eating and defending the kill againts a pair of lions. The people staying at the house graciously allowed eager campers to watch the spectacle from their fence. It was an awesome experience but with my mik and druk camera, I couldn't get a single photo (8pm to midnight). The waterhole is lit and the sighting was surreal. The book "101 Kruger Tales has a chapter on that very incident. Tried to track down the person who submitted the story but wasn't successful. All I know is she is from Milnerton or Tableview area. That's all I could get from Struik (the book publishers).

Soet wees!

Ek is nie baie lief vir Satara se kampeerterrein nie, maar baie gek oor die area - baie wild en 'n groot verskeidenheid van toeristepaaie om te ry. Dit is baie selde dat Satara nie deel van my reisplan uitmaak nie. Reeds weer vir Mei 2021 daar bespreek. Ek was al gelukkig wat staanplekke aanbetref, maar ek het darem ook al by geleentheid die spreekwoordelike kort strooitjie daar getrek.

Ek plaas sommer 'n paar foto's oor ons onderskeie staanplekke oor die jare by Satara. Ek het nie 'n digitale foto van die eerste keer toe ons daar gekamp het nie - Sep 2002. Ons het toe een van die ergste windstorms beleef wat ons ooit in die wildtuin gehad het. Satara se kampeerterrein was chaos met tente wat geskeur was, tentpale wat gebuig was en dele van tente wat tot teen die kampdraad vasgewaai was.

Ons het selfs een jaar (Julie 2011) net met ons tent en 'n gazebo vir 'n week daar gekamp - toe ek nog gewerk het en verlof maar beperk was. Afgesien van verskeie kere wat ons in rondawels in Satara was, het ons reeds 8 keer daar gekamp. Soos reeds genoem, gee ek Satara maar moeilik 'n "skip" danksy die goeie wildbesigtiging en uitstekende netwerk van paaie. Reeds weer 24 - 30 Mei volgende jaar daar bespreek.

Ek het gedink dit is iewers in die Dinokeng reservaat, maar ek ken slegs Almega (wat inderwaarheid buite die grense van die reservaat is) - dus sal ek moet skote in die donker skiet vir hetsy Tshikwalo, of Dinokeng self, of Ruah Park, of Willem's Rus, of, of of ...

Jip....dis Willemsrus. Heerlik om net daar te sit en veld dop te hou. Hierdie was sommer n oggend braai. As mens net so oor die braai kyk is daar n watergat....seker so 25-30m in die veld....daar kom heelwat wild in om te drink....veral laat middag. Ons was later die dag uit op n besigtings rit toe ons bure sê dat die leeus daar kom drink het {ons het dit gemis} Ek het juis weer n paar dae in Augustes daar bespreek.

Die nuwe een. Die pad het verskriklik agter uit gegaan. Hoe is dit daar?

Dit was regtig heerlik rustig daar....sal weer gaan. Soos jy sê, daai Dewagensdrif pad was rof.....soms was loopspoed al te vinnig. Blykbaar is daai pad heelwat maande laas geskraap

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁
