    Default beach wild camping

    Apart from the Namaqua coast north of Lutzville, is it possible to wild camp between Doringbaai and Lambertsbaai?

    What about Donkin's bay area?

    Mostly privately owned between Doring Bay and Lambert's Bay. Google Rooiduinen, it's just north of Lambert's Bay and I believe available for camping.

    Coastal Safari recently posted on their Facebook page a picture/post(see pic below) of a "wild " camping trailer setup close to Doringbaai.

    Perhaps they can assist?

    Baie dankie

    There is a new farm owner, he may come around to collect a camping fee - R 120-00 per family when we were there in September.

    Thanks AndyT. I might decide to just go to the wild camp area on Namaqua coast again.
    However, please PM me contact details of the new owner, because I dont think it wise to just arrive there. Also probably will encounter locked gates, since it is private land.

    We camped close to Brand se Baai during December 2019.
    No farmer came around and we were told that his farm is a bit further away from Brand se Baai(more towards Groenrivier).
    Other campers complained that the farmer came around collecting money from them.
    Farms name apparently is : Watervalle.

    Unfortunately no further details available.

    Yes that sounds about right.

    This is where we were camped - https://www.google.co.za/maps/place/...60986?hl=en-GB

    The farmer came around one afternoon, very pleasant guy mind you, explained that he had bought the farm a while ago and the local municipality "forced" him to rezone for camping.
    He was therefore just trying to recoup some of his losses. His farm as best I could make out covers 20km of seafront - from the gate at Groenrivier to the next gate south of where we were.
    He does not always come around to collect fees, I guess only on busy or long weekends / holiday season.

    His wife gave us a pamphlet thingy, as soon as I can get a copy I will post here.

    No, guys, we are not talking about the same place. The Namaqua coast from Koekenaap, just north of the Tormin mine on the Skaapvlei road up to Groenrivier is the wild camp area, this includes Brandsebaai. I have been there a few times.

    The place I am talking about is called Rooiduin on the private land of Zeven puts just north of Lamberts baai and south of Donkins bay.

    How is the security for wild camping there now? Were there not some robbery/theft incidents a while back. (I guess security wild camping or even any camping in SA and neighbouring countries is always a concern.)

    Elize, al perdehoef baai wat ek ken is Kwassebaai.
    Dit is in die reservaat noord van Groenriviermond en suid van Koringkorrelbaai.
