The roads to the resort are gravel roads but very chilled drive.
Ablution facilities are quite clean and kept very tidy.
The place is absolutely lovely and so relaxed. Beautiful hiking trails and very friendly staff. Definitely would return there
The 30km dirt road is in a very bad condition. Their is not much leisure/recreation facilities at the resort. Only the small river for kids to enjoy. The owner was very rude on our arrival, especially after a 12 hour drive. When we arrived, the wrong camping spot was allocated to us. We had to move our caravan again to another spot. The owner however assisted us in moving our caravan. Very important Mrs. Geyer, do not reprimand your employees in front of campers. Do not accuse us in "bamboozle" your employees, when the wrong camping spot had been allocated to us. Very unprofessional. The ablution facilities is not sufficient. Only two toilets and a urinal for the men. The one toilet's cover is broken. Three showers and one bath for all the campers is not sufficient. Maybe read up what the health and safety act stipulates in terms of ablution facilities. The shop is ok with limited supplies. The attractions in Underberrg is acceptable. I would not return as you need to update your website .
The directions to the resort from Underberg are clearly defined on the Booking Confirmation Form but if you are arriving after dark, as we did, and are following your GPS you will end up on the alternate Access Road that is not in the best condition. The recommended road is also gravel but it is in a far better condition. Follow the recommended route.
The resort is located in the foothills surrounded by magnificent mountain views and our
4 x Camp Sites were located together within easy access to the ablutions but not far from the murmuring river where I spent each morning on the banks enjoying my early morning coffee and Ouma.
The sites are level and grassed with fire pits installed and free standing braais provided. The camp staff were hardworking and very helpful and friendly. It was a cold and wet weekend but we did not experience any problems with water drainage from our sites and I think the weather contributed significantly to the low number of campers enjoying Silverstreams over the long weekend.
The ablutions are not modern but they are spotless with ample facilities to service everyone camping over the weekend. They may be a little pressed to cope during peak season but hot water is provided by Heat Pumps and was plentiful even when Eskom power was interrupted for several hours. (Come prepared with backup lights and a small gas stove because Eskom is, well, as you know, Eskom). If we as a group had one criticism of the ablutions it would be that the wash basins are set too far back from where you stand and are too low â€“ but this is just a minor ergonomic inconvenience easily dealt with.
The location of Silverstreams creates the ideal atmosphere for a relaxed getaway to enjoy peace and quiet in an area where security never entered our minds. Unfortunately the weather only allowed us to do one hike up the adjacent mountain and the views from the top were worth every step of the way.
Regrettably, because weekends just seem to evaporate, we never got to visit the store and tea garden on site but we did visit the Pig and Pony, located about 1 Km from the resort, and enjoyed a scrumptious and very reasonably prices breakfast whilst enjoying the beauty of the farm and trying to work out how Mrs Piggy could be so fat and still walk. The horses were magnificent and if there was more time available horse riding would have been on the cards for some of the group. Sadly the weekend was over and we needed to pack up camp and head back home.
Firstly, let me state that this is not an actual reflection on the park, but rather a precautionary report on access. There had been a small amount of rain in the area on the day preceding our visit. We followed other reviews and took the second turn-off road after Underberg. In the first 8 kms we experienced our difficulties as a few large trucks had used the road and badly cut up the clay sub-base, to an extent that on one corner and 2 gradients, it was impassable unless in a 4 X 4. Check weather and road conditions (if possible) before your trip!
