Hi all

We had planned to stop at Aldam between 31 Jan to 2 Feb 2020, but they are fully booked for a Sparta Conference. Any recommendations for a good stop-over to split our journey?

Sean from Gariep to Parys is about 500km.  If you pass Bloemfontein there is really not resort further until you get to Parys apart from Aldam Resort that you mentioned.

Just north of Bloem are a few well placed stop over resorts next to the N1 Highway.  I would try to overnight there then that will leave you with about 300km to Parys.

The ideal would have been Aldam Resort

Don't dare stay over at Kroonstad.  Last feedback was very bad.

Have you ever stayed at Danke Schon Guest House (Winburg), Amanzi Game Reserve (Brandfort) or Bundu Camp (Ventersburg)?

No never have.  Reason being that it is to close to home and traveling down to Cape or back to Pretoria we either go for Gariep  when traveling down or stop over at Bloem.

We stayed at Riviera just north of Bloemfontein, ideal for a stop over and it is next to the freeway.

Have decided to drive through from Gariep to Parys, and stay two nights in Parys instead of one.

 

Thanks for all advice

I understand that Riviera is closed.

Brandfort Amanzi het n 14 kilo sonkplaat grond pad. 

Riviera bloemfontein is toe.

In Bloem is dit....

River of joy... op die maselspoort afrit.

Reynecke park ...  op kimberley afrit

Kontak hulle,  eks seker hulle sal jou kan akkommodeer.

I love camping all year round

River of Joy is beter want vandat die Meule opgerig is oorkant die pad van Reyneke park slaap mens nie baie lekker daar nie.  Die oord is puik die lawaai tot laat nie so lekker nie.
