Cradock Spa


On our way home from 31° Latitude trip, late at night, we were really in need of a place to camp and ended up at Cradock Spa - what a pleasant surprise. The camp was empty, and that on a long week-end, but apparently it was due to the fact that the spring water is not hot enough and the machine that heats the water is broken. It is a municipal campsite, so I guess that explains it.


Anyway, the campsite was clean, grassed, with trees for shade, clean ablusion block and a swimming pool.

The small Sterkfontein Dam Nature Reserve is in a beautiful area of the Drakensberg foothills, 23km south of Harrismith on the Oliviershoek Pass road into KwaZulu-Natal. Looking out over this expansive dam with its backdrop of rugged peaks feels like gazing across an inland sea. At one of the many viewpoints there’s a vulture ‘restaurant’, but there’s no set day or time for feeding. Sunset cruises on the dam’s lake are available.

South Africa's Inland Campsites

a review


On the long trips Cederberg 4x4 tries to select safe campsites where the ablution facilities are adequate and where possible there is a lodge that offers a pub and restuarant. At other times we look for new campsites that can be used en-route to a rendezvous or when just travelling through the country. As we travel so often, we will be adding to this page every now and again.

Assendelft Lodge - Prince Albert Road


The upmarket Assendelft Lodge & Bush Camp is situated in the Central Karoo near the tiny hamlet of Prince Albert Road Station and it offers luxury lodge or safari style bush camp accommodation in the Great Karoo near Beaufort West, Leeu-Gamka, Laingsburg & Prince Albert. It is the ideal overnight stop for long distance travelers.

Each chalet has its own braai area and for larger groups, a communal braai area is available where you can sit around the campfire, under the stars at night. Wood is available from the lodge for just making a fire or enjoying a braai. Lights in the chalets are solar powered and hot water is generated by a traditional hot water “donkey”. There is no other electricity available. Only bookings for 5 or more people are allowed. The owner will be building facilities for camping. At present there is only a flush toilet and hand basin for campers, but we've camped there several times. It is stunning.

Address: Goeiemoed Farm, just off the R328,

Van Rynsdorp Caravan Park


After a long drive whether from Cape Town or Namibia this is an ideal stop-over. Either camp or enjoy the rooms & self-catering units. The Caravan Park has a quiet farm like atmosphere, with grass underfoot and some trees for shade. Full ablution facilities.

All the rooms/units have different identities, which varies in size and accommodation. As a privately owned caravan park, the rooms and self-catering units have clean linen and towels. Some of our rooms/units do have air conditioning to keep the heat out and make your stay even more enjoyable and DSTV. All of the above have a small bar fridge to keep those beverages cold, and a braai area in front of each unit.

There is a very popular restaurant that serves delicious food, saving you the hassle of preparing food after a long drive.
