    We went to have a look during July21 and yes I think it should be safe from crime, but we were disappointed by locals drinking their local pineapple brew and occupying the two small man made pools on a Friday morning 11am. Bit rowdy to our liking. Wasn't to impressed with the campsites either and moved along. Beautiful location with lots of potential but..... Watched a few ytube camp review vids on this and decided to visit, but not impressed. Next time Ill go camp at Khamkirri and do a day visit.

    We were camping at Augrabies campsite 3 weeks ago and planned to go check out Riemvasmaak.
    Fellow campers said that they had just gone there and it was disappointing and we should not wast our time going .
    Based on this we did not go

    They have reduced the campsites to only 3, and have been working on the ablutions for more than 3 years now.. It is a pity that such a wonderful camping spot is being destroyed.

    I will camp there, only with the knowledge and acceptance that it will be facility less

    Yup - bush camp.
    We stayed at Augrabies NP in late 2018 and used that as base to explore around including Riemvasmaak.
    Scenery is amazing, the locals are "interesting" - I just love the unique way the Namakwalanders speak.
    They are a different culture and that makes it so interesting.
    Example: When a young couple, dating, are allowed by the parents to chat alone outside on the plot, they are considered to be "necking" and they express this as:
    "Bankie sit, en dingitjie tik".
    Makes you think, doesn't it?
    So accurately descriptive I thought, without being Non PC.
    Maybe they are the original woke folk.

    We camped at Die Mas van Kakamas (decent place - NOT IN DECEMBER) as the bar is the dorps local hangout. With it also being harvest time there are plenty of youngsters(16-21). En hulle drink en stoei.

    We did a day trip to Khamkirri and is seemed very nice. We will be stopping over in December on our way back from KNP

    Riemvasmaak, was a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting a bit more from what I heard of it. But still been there done that. I can tick it off my list as interesting sites of SA

    Augrabies, was nice. Flow rate was lower than what is normal. Due to draight.
