    Talking So who is going camping this weekend?

    let us know whether you are going camping this weekend and where?

    I'm going to Ezemvelo just outside of Dronkwordspruit . Never been there, hopefully its a nice place to be and the weather plays along.

    Need to go test some of the latest mods to my trailer...

    Let us know what it's like. I'm starting to look for a peaceful spot for the easter break but don't want to go to far.

    We went to Buffelspoort. My first time there, and my first time at a "resort" camping. It was fantastic! a Bit commercialized for me but the kids had a jol!

    Would like to go to a bush camp with nothing, no power, communal lights or stuff, just well mantained ablusions and a pool for the kids. Warmbaths, Nylstroom area. Any ideas?

    mabalingwe, ask for the 4x4camp... never been to the site, but I have heard that it is good, no power/water ect, you have to be fully self sufficient. camp site has a pool and all the nice to haves and it is just outside warmbaths.
    also a not to bad 4x4 trail..
    I like anything with 4 or more wheels...

    Mabalingwe 4x4camp not to bad, but be warned about the baboons. They wrecked everthing. Opened trailer tents and cleaned out all the food while I was away including beer. I did ask guy who works there whether baboons open tents and was told no but that was not the case. Told me this was the first time. Yeah right!

    Thaba Tswane out site Potgieters Rust, its also dog friendly, with 4 by 4 and 4 by 2 tracks, mountain bikes, and other stuff, normal caravan will struggle and scratch going there, it is still a functional farm so expect a few cattle explores and a few soft land mines with some flies and smells, start by looking at Google Maps the follow the rout out from Perch Fyfe road, it will pick the Resort with all its detail

    We are trying out Kyleu in Dinokeng this weekend.

    To get some seriously needed RnR but also to test the new solar set up. Just seems as if we might have a spot of dampness.

    We went to Dube game lodge.

    Nice facilities and plenty of game.

    Only 40 min from Pretoria.

    We went to Dube last year in August. It was awesome. We arrived half past eight the evening and my little daughter was watching a DVD. We drove past 4/5 zebras standing quite close to the road. I told her to look out the window. She just said, wow...WOW. Priceless. And the gatekeeper offered to help us pitch our tents.

    Just got back from Ezemvelo.

    Well, I can tell you that if you are looking for a place with no frill and that hasn't been commercialized then Ezemvelo is for you.

    Stands have electricity and the ablutions are ok, not the best I've seen but also not the worst. There is a swimming pool and a dam for those interested in fishing and that's it. They have horseback rides and there is plenty of game on the reserve when u drive around.

    Went on a night game drive (only R70 p.p) which was really cool and saw plenty game!

    Camping incl. electricity is R70 p.p.p.n

    What a great weekend! Dube is also high on my list of places to try.

    A well run place in the waterburg near Ellisras run by Herman and Dawn out the way is Grootwater also refered to Poer se Loop. www.grootwater.co.za There are 4x4 trails of varying difficulty. Although they allow quads when we were there the owner had strict control. Some sites have power and the oblutions are spotless.
