    My next campsite review in this series; Molope camp in Blouberg Nature Reserve
    https://youtu.be/C3oBqfqprxQ

    It was only a stopover (two nights) so I'm definitely going back for a longer stay, really great place!

    Seems like a really nice campsite!

    What are the ablutions like?

    Just seem a bit far for a weekend?

    Thanks for the review - keep them coming.

    Ablutions are basic and need a little TLC (nothing hectic).

    Definitely a little far for a weekend. Good stopover for Tuli block or Mapungubwe but it's also nice enough for a standalone trip.

    Not for us Limpopo guys

    But its a very nice reserve and Johan does his best to keep it that way.

    I had a question on my channel; which road to Mapungubwe is better coming from JHB/PTA; via Alldays (R521) or Musina (via N1 Louis Trichardt)? I only went via Alldays and the last stretch between Alldays and Mapungubwe was badly potholed. What does the Musina road look like? It ads about 60km and I suspect the stretch between Musina and Mapungubwe will be just as bad (did a bit of it on my way to Mapesu).

    The alldays road is hectic, I did that at night with a friends hatch, the other route was a bit better even though longer. Is the whole park open now? Or still two parts? On the way to the main gate the fences were down when we went , apparently the elephants push them over. I must say we were last there 2 years ago.


    Okay scratch that, friend living in alldays says its the better route, just take it slow rather than going al the way through musina

    Alldays is my preferred route, Musina is a 80km detour, plus the mountain and toll gates.

    On the Alldays route once pass the Waterpoort turn-off the road is less hectic.

    Just take it slow.

    Have a look at Boelamien river camp, Limpopo close to Platjan Border awesome camp on the river with great views. I would consider this better than Ratho bush camp
