    Default Olifants River Lodge

    Hi Guys

    I planning to go camping at Olifants River Lodge, http://www.olifants-river-lodge.co.za. Looking at there website it seems like a great place but there is no grading on the camping sites. There is however a grading on the chalets. Can anyone tell me what the campsite is like and the facilities? It makes me a bit worried that they did the grading for the chalets but not the campsite.

    Cheers.

    PradoGuy, don't go there!!!

    Last time I was there the place was full of drunk Afrikaners!
    Their vehicles were covered in mud - filthy, filthy!
    They were forcing everyone to have 'strafdoppe'!
    They cooked out in the open in big pots on fires like cave men!
    I even saw a group drive a Landy into a river & then pull it out again...
