    Default Camp Sites Where ONLY 4x4's Can Get To?

    I would like to know some nice camp sites where only 4x4's / decent bakkies can get to and no cars with dropped suspensions and low profiles with bass blasters can get to.

    Beaverlac used to be one of them but they managed to get those pimpbmobiles up there these days...

    Basically nice camp sites where there is no bass music or people swearing at each others mothers.

    Hi Kurt

    Maybe have a look at Klein Tafelberg as well - in winter and spring the flora is absolutely stunning!!! They have new chalets and camping sites with electricity and their ablution facilities are the best. Also a pool, communial braai if you don't want to braai at your spot, "kitchen" area with a freezer - and the best is that the owner is there on weekends as well - so he will sort out the "un-behaved".

    Kurt,

    I can definately vouch for Klein Tafelberg, it's one of my favourite spots as well. Stephen won'y take any nonsense of people not behaving. I am going there again at the end of November.

    Another place you can have a look at is Boegoeberg. A bit further but also great, will visit there end of the month for the long weekend.

    Then you can also look at places in the Cederberg like Nuwerust. Accessible by normal car but I don't think Louise will allow an unbehaved crowd either.

    Alternatively, have a look at www.campsa.co.za I think this is an initiative from one of our very own forum members...

    Louise will not take any nonsense. Well controled, clean and quiet.

    Also try Bojaanskop near Calitzdorp. You might get there with a 2x4 with difflock. Very very quiet, clean and the owners will even bring wood to the campsite at a very reasonable fee. A no nonsense campsite. Chances are good that there will be no other campers.

    Or try to get a group of 6 couples together and book the entire site @ Skilpadfontein - next to the Breede river, lots of fishing, mountain biking @ a great lapa to kuier!

    Between the Groen and Spoeg rivers in the new part of the Namaqua national park. Quite a few camp sites along the coast. Braai places, but no other facilities. Composting toilets, but out of order. Were there last long weekend - no crowds, lovely flowers.

    Agree with Swanny, Kroonland is such place. Need a high clearance vehicle to get to the camp spot, nice lapa to braai beautiful views and very close to Cape Town (close to Villiersdorp)

    Boegoeberg near Clanwilliam. A specific campsite where only 4x4 vehicles can get to.

    Is there any other type of camping?

    Try the Richtersveld conservancy - like the Richtersveld nat park, just wilder. Camp where you want to and you can even choose a campsite where very few 4x4's get to if you wish.

    Default nice camp site - Protea Farm , Montague.

    Hi Kurt24
    We went to Protea farm camp site last year that was very nice. Only one 4x4 can drive to the campsite at a time due to the narrow mountain pass. Some challinging points. This place to me is magical. You completely isolated and have the most nessory facilities like toilets, showers, wash basin and hot water. You will need a 4x4 to get there!!! The river pool and grass park is nice for kids to play. No Electricity!!! come prepaired!! lots of shade!! The stars was freeking spectaculaaaaaar!!!!!

    Only two hours from cape town with all posible things you can do in Montaque with kids and dogs it is the perfect place for me.

    If you go - Enjoy!!

    My apologies if I am off the topic, but will it be possible to create a database where members can input these sites with directions and comments? There are beautiful places that are not generally known, and then are also those best avoided.

    The Tankwa is in the middle of no where and needs a hardy vehicle to get there too but believe me it is also not for the faint hearted campers

    You can try De Vlei Private Nature Reserve. See www.devlei.com. On the same road (Ceres - Calvinia) as Tankwa Karroo NP. 4 camping spots, small ablution facility, no power etc, quads and scramblers not allowed. Camping spots can only be reached with 4x4. There is a cottage on the land as well, which may be available when the owner is not going to use it. There are some pictures on the website, with booking facility etc. Lovely little known place.
