Jip ek dink ons moet 'n plekkie kry wat ons 'n kuier vuur in die middel tussen die karavane kan maak.

Just saw on FB that Thabo Monata is offering a writer special of 50% off their prices for May and June. Just mentioning it I have scouted it before it there was a theft there last time sometime which has left them rather empty since with word of mouth being what it is now days but it was on my "Try" list before that. May be worth a look if they have sorted out security.

Soetdoring Vakansie Plaas in Vereeniging would suite me to a "T". Remember that I have to tow from Pietermaritzburg to a CaravanParks.com Forums Members Rally.

Soetdoring has a heated outdoor pool, game drives and so on. See my recent write up on follow the NBS link above. Also see their website. Follow "Resorts"  link above.

This is an excellent resort and I'm sure we could get a good rate for early June. If you guys are keen, I'll get the ball rolling.

Any other suggestions?

Agree with Willie .... if I cannot make it, then I may be able to pop in to say "Hi" - 80/90km from me - also not far from Johannesburg.

Can someone suggest a date?

Dit lyk vir my na 'n goeie voorstel Willem - vir die wat nog Saterdae moet werk, is daar nog geleentheid om aan te sluit!

Yes!

They say if I am not careful, then I will look like my sister.Wink

Seriously, its not that bad .... anywhere in "the old Transvaal" is cold in winter ... just use a heater or cuddle closer.

We don't mind camping in Winter, but then we rather go to Limpopo or anywhere it is warmer during the day.  Don't mind the evenings, we have an air con and an electric blanket.

Soetdoring can accommodate us (CaravanParks.com Forums Members Rally) for the week end 14th June - 17th June. (3 nights)

Who is interested?

We need to book at least ten sites.

Willie/Trentonskeeper,

Can you give us prices please? Seems only two proposals, so far.

Hessie, Wat het jy in gedagte?

 

I think we must start jumping - the clock is not waiting for us!

Ek weet Soetdoring is nie goedkoop nie en baie stofferig maar vir die alternatief kyk na Bloekompoort. Nie 'n sleg oord nie. Darem bietjie gras en plaveilsel by die staanplekke, TV skottel by elke staanplek, bring net jou Tv en dekordeerder. Storte lekker groot en plek om jou klere en handdoeke te sit. Eienaar maak die lekkerste kos soos 'n ontbyt vir R30.00 en kan sommer vir ons 'n lekker ete kook vir die aand. Ablusies is skoon en netjies. Die groot voordeel ook jy het teerpad tot by die kamp. Daar is ook 'n lekker groot saal as ons daar wil kuier. Sal eerder dalk hierna toe wil gaan. Weet nie hoe voel die ander nie.
Kampgroete
Jan en Hester

I can confirm what Hessie says and add additional info.

We were there for the long week end in December @ R80 per night (3 nights atR240) and again two week ends ago at R100 per night, both with caravan clubs. Over both week ends we had lovely breakfasts - the last was pap, mince, eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato, toast with margarine and jam (first was similar).

16 km south of Three Rivers (Vereeniging).

Within secured fencing.

Cold water swimming pool wit separate splash pool. Large thatch roof alongside.

More than one hall to accomodate more than one group, in need.

Large braai's designed for groups. No shortage in sites - truly a large grassed area.

A small portion of sites have less grass due to trees, but mainly well grassed and not cramped. Other accomodation also available.

Small shop ...I found this a bit inconvenient, due to placement and having to basically order from the outside (probably a security issue).

I learnt at a late stage they have an urn on all day for a help yourself coffee (not sure if there is tea etc) with milk and sugar.

I think I have placed some photo's elsewhere on the forum, but if required can place on this thread.

Having been there twice, I have no hesitation in recommending and I will certainly go again, if the time and opportunity arise again.

If you are looking for a warmer area, I would recommend consideration oof Silwer Vis in Brits, but am aware some don't like it due to an isolated shooting there whilst still Trans-Magalies. I personally cannot understand why this stigma has remained. Afterall, if I pull out a gun, how can the resort be blamed?
