Ablutions

Centrally situated, unisex, quirky, hobbit-like. These rock and thatch buildings have mud walls and glass details. They are labors of love, handcrafted from reclaimed and recycled materials. There are 4 hot water showers, 1 bath and 4 flushing loos. They may be unconventional and rustic but dirty they are not. They are well cared for and cleaned daily. Loos make use of septic tanks; don’t flush ANYTHING EXCEPT TOILET PAPER.

Water Points

Only 4 fresh water taps service all 30 sites. Water is a scarce resource, so stretch your legs, socialize or bird watch. Do use a bucket to wash your vehicle if absolutely necessary, but not the hose pipe.

camping

Electricity

There are 10 standard points and capacity is VERY limited. (lights and small camping fridge ONLY). Appliances with elements (kettles, hotplates, hairdryers etc) will trip everything. We reserve the right to unplug offending equipment. We encourage the use of solar panels. Noisy generators are not welcome. There are no bright security lights in and around the campsite, because you can see the stars better without! Please bring a torch. Ablutions are well lit and solar lamps are available if Eskom leaves us in the dark.

Parking

There is only space for one vehicle per site. There are no specific allocated parking spots as the campsite is quite organic. Park near or next to your site. Should you wish to give yourselves extra space you need to park in the visitor parking area.

Dogs and Wildlife

Sorry strictly NO Dogs, unless by prior arrangement. We love nature, naturally, but don’t feed the monkeys or leave food out. Also don’t bring doom foggers or zappers to dematerialize the bugs. Mozzies excluded.
