The campsite is gorgeous, much greener than I expected it to be. We were welcomed with open arms and it felt like we were part of the group! The communal braai was great, for N$140 you get a full plate of braai meat and side dishes which the owner (Hennie) was nice enough to dish up for us and let us share the plate. Cheap beer, great location and friendly staff members! Would definitely recommend... Read more
