    We just found Ngata Bush Lodge in the web. It's in the Denokeng Reserve. Has anyone been there. Any feedback?

    Was there last year for a quick one night weekend stay. They were still busy finishing the ablutions but is a nice small campsite. Only about 5 or 6 sites with swimming pool and boma as well. Not much in the line of shade but they put up a shade net for you. All sites next to the fence.

    The restaurant has some of the best spare ribs and we have been back a couple of times for that.

    Somabula near Cullinan is very good. Only 6 campsites, no electricity and very quiet. Can walk, cycle and horseride amongst the game. Plenty birdlife as well.

    Report back on Ngata:

    We were fortunate to be the only couple camping. Campsites are next to each other if that is your cup of tea, I would have not enjoyed it if there were neighbours. But ideal for groups.

    Ablutions are not maintained, mens shower U/S, not in winter please. I could fortunately use the ladies. The outside shower was fun in the mornings when it had warmed up.

    Hospitality fantastic, smoked spare ribs very good at the Restaurant.

    Would I rush back? Not likely.

    Cheers

    Waterberg Wilderness Camp.

    We were there this weekend, what an awesome find. Only accessible with a 4x4. No electricity, but they do have hot showers, and flush toilets. Each site has pvt ablutions.

    Will definately be visiting again.

    Does anyone have info on Donkerpoort Dam close to Nylstroom?
    We'll be in the area over the weekend and would like to try some fishing there. But I can't seem to find any contact info, or if one may indeed fish/visit there

    Hi Folks,

    Here's a list of local campsites I've been to thus far (and that I can recommend obviously). I'll probably add more details later as well (maybe a grading system of sorts like discussed earlier).

    http://bit.ly/2KNeqzM

    The one that hasn't been mentioned here yet is Kyleu inside Dinokeng, an absolute gem; no fences, big stands that are far apart and private ablutions at each stand. They also have 2 stands next to the river with no facilities.

    Let me know if I missed any!

    Cheers,
    Christoff
