    Default Best holiday resort for a week or a day trip in the vaal area?

    We often frequent resorts in the brits area...kleinparadys...dube...bosveld oase etc. All of these have a resort feel and mainly consist of campsites with activities that include..fishing..hiking..cycling...pool..supertub es ,wildlife viewing etc.

    We stay in alberton and very rarely hear of popular places around the greater vaal area which is much closer to us especially for a day trip....this got me thinking.

    Any resort like places that members would like to share that have families with children in mind and have most of the activities I mentioned above?

    I came across one recently called Sionbergh near Heidelberg Although they do not allow day visitors it looks like our next camping trip will be booked here.

    Happy camping.

    Use to be called Eastco Magalies.

    Small place but nice. Haven't been there since they changed management/owners though.

    ATKV Buffelspoort is one of our favorites. You can go fishing around the corner at Buffelspoort Dam.

    Yes this place caught my eye..thankyou very much..its certainly an option. Its just so strange to me that the places on the vaal meander dont seem as popular as those closer to Harties and Brits and Bela Bela area. We really enjoy Klein paradys and Im hoping someone here will point us to a little gem on this side of the boerewors curtain.

    River Run Resort near potchefstroom on the vaal river.I went there a few weeks back for the first time and was very very pleasantly surprised..Probably the best ablusions i have seen at a resort in a long time..No loud music allowed at night so its peaceful and calm.
