About Grootfontein Camping Villages

Got no tent. Can't camp? No longer the case, intrepid budget traveller. With the arrival of Wolfkop Camping Villages, the hassle and logistics of a camping weekend is now a thing of the past. In fact, if the blurb "you only bring food and clothes" is anything to go by, any preconceived idea you have about camping - leaking tents, missing poles and pegs, hard ground and sand fleas, is in for a serious shake up.

To set the scene, what we offer is a 100-hectare citrus-buchu-rooibos farm located about 20 km from Citrusdal, with the campsite located right on the banks of the Olifants River, so we're not talking dodge municipal setting. We're talking wide open spaces, green grass, gorgeous sunsets, languid days filled with swimming, braaing and getting to know your neighbours.

Each camping village, there can be a maximum of six spread along a 200 m stretch, comprises a 7.5 or 10 square Bedouin free form marquee with an excellent outlook over the water, and one to three (depending on group size) canvas tents pitched underneath and equipped with three-quarter high density foam mattresses, cotton percale bedding, blankets, towels. Then, there's a fully equipped kitchen area with a braai grid and utensils, chairs, tables, electric light and cooler boxes.

Furthermore, every village has its own power point and hammocks,lest you forget that camping is hard work. Ablutions hot showers and flush toilets are communal, as is the fridge for the frosties, freezer and microwave. Talk about roughing it in style.

Canoes and kayaks are available for hire - but bring your own if you have.

      Accommodation is superb. What could be improved is the pest control. I had to kill 3 mice.

      We loves staying by the water.We arrived early so we were the 1st ones there and we could choose which tent to stay in. The river rafting was a highlightMy 3 year old was excited to be in the water.

      It was so great to not have to set up and take down but still get that camping experience, the only thing is we were expecting Jacuzzi's as it said on the site that there was but only at the baths which is quite a drive.

      We spent two nights in the weekend. What an amazing weekend getaway. Swimming, canoeing, braaing and enjoying the sunset. Great camping spots very private and everything you need. Clean and neat basic communal toilet and shower facilities. Very friendly people at the camping as well! Will definitely come back!

      Spent week camping at Wolfkop. Almost perfect as far as location, however, with sixteen sites the ablution facilities are totally inadequate. The communal kitchen area is also in need of an upgrade (new fridges /freezers and microwave ) as the number of these items currently available are not adequate for the number of people on site. The cleanliness of the communal area's was also not up to scratch. If the owner can sort out these areas the camping experience will be 5 star.
