    At Buffalo Gorge the mountain top camp is fine. You need 4x4/high clearance to get up there. The camp down below may not be so good. Also good to play in the 4x4 obstacle course.

    Afri-Sun you must ask about the mountain top site as it's not advertised on their website. Need 4x4 to get up there.

    I was looking for a bushcamp on a quick getaway in the Vaalwater area sometime soon and one of the suggestions was Syringa Sands. I didn't see that on your list and was wondering if anyone has been there and what's it like...?

    You also have Matamba bush camp (camping) in that area, I can highly recommend it.

    Iíll add Syringaís bush camp to the list as well

    As I've pretty much visited 99% the bush camps within 3h of JHB now (unless you have new ones ) I'm venturing out to other areas and doing a few at a time. I'll now do a trip video as well as the normal reviews of each site thereafter.
    Here's the first one, Northern Limpopo;

    Thanks Martin!

    Serendipity has massive potential but imho isnít being managed / maintained well. Had issues with the donkey at the bush camp, amenities are dilapidated and the river camp didnít have any power (although itís advertised as such), still waiting for a call back from them (1 week later)...

    It is a real pity about Serendepity - have taken note and maybe do a "site visit" when in the area before making a booking...

    Please do keep us posted on the feedback, if received.

    Looking forward to more of your great reviews...
    Safe travels

    As I've had a few requests for it, I'm opening this up to other countries; Bots, Nam, Zim, Zam, Moz

    You can submit campsites as normal, I just added a country selection https://goo.gl/forms/TRvKA5pTJ2oUA0nI3

    Cheers
