    Default Dinokeng Camping Suggestions

    Anyone got recommendations for nice camping in Dinokeng ? Preferably something off the beaten track, but
    must having running water and ablutions. Not too worried about electricity.
    Also dont want a place that is very busy and commercial.
    thanks.

    Last time there we were at Kyleu. Stands are spaced out from each other with own well kept ablutions. No Elec.
    The stands are in the reserve bush and not fenced off.
    Dont take anything I say as actual advice or fact. I dont.

    Nice and small with ample space between camps. Only thing is it is unfenced thus any animal can walk through camp including lions. If you have small kids it may be an issue. Also not the place for walking or cycling. For R&R it is super.

    My order of preference in Dinokeng

    Kyleu Bush Camp.
    Nice secluded camp sites in the bush, at night you might be able to see your neighbours fire if they make a big one and hear them off in the distance.
    Each site has its own private ablution with gas geyser and solar lights, also a sink for washing dishes on the outside, there is no electricity.
    It is a open unfenced camp, so wild animals sometimes visit, when we were there last October we had zebra and kudu in camp, the other day on Facebook I saw they had a Cheetah if I remember just outside camp. They have very nice half drum braai's and fire pits, very friendly staff, they sell ice and also wood.

    They also have river sites with no facilities, no water, no electricity, no ablution, but I've never been to these.

    Next is Willems Rus, also nice and secluded sites but slightly less of a bush feeling, water, electricity and shared ablutions unless you get site 1 which has a private ablution, they mostly give this one along with site 2 and 3 for groups though. I actually can't remember if they sell wood and ice, but also very good friendly service, nice big braai's and there's a pool to keep the kids busy.

    Almega has nice and big sites, but not very secluded as in you can see your next door neighbours if you want to, at least you don't camp in their faces. Private ablution for every site, electricity and water, they sell wood and ice, very good and friendly service. They also have a pool and play area for the kids, if you are a late sleeper then don't take the site next to the kids play area unless you have kids of your own, then I guess it can be a advantage since you can keep a eye on them all the time.

    Last time we were there a couple with their child riding a bike along side them took some walks along the camp sites and roads, so mostly in the open, I can't remember if Kyleu actually allows this, but all obviously at own risk.
    At night from the trailer to the bathroom was around 10 steps and I thought nothing of it, but the next morning their was small buck spoor all around the trailer and between the trailer and bathroom, so we could have walked right in to each other resulting in a big skrik, or worse, it could have been a cat.

    In my experience no, this isn't a issue, though last I've been there was during the week and before that also during lock down so it was abnormally quiet. Some here on the forum had bad experiences at both Kyleu and Willems Rus in the past due to all night music from the shebeens not too far away, the consensus seams to be that this happens around pay day weekends only, so maybe try to avoid pay day weekends. Touch wood I personally never had shebeen music bothering me while there.

    Any camping in the Magaliesburg area anyone can recommend perhaps?
    I'm looking for something about an hours drive outside of Joburg.
