If you think that having no tent should stop you from actually going camping, think again. This is longer the case with the arrival of Biesievlak River Cabins and Campsite. The hassle and logistics of a camping weekend in the Citrusdal Valley is now a thing of the past. The slogan, “You only bring food and clothes,” shakes up any preconceived idea you have about camping – leaking tents, missing poles and pegs, hard ground and sand fleas.
To set the scene, we have here a 100ha citrus-buchu-rooibos farm located about 20km from Citrusdal, with the campsite located right on the banks of the Olifants River – so we’re not talking dodge municipal setting. We’re talking wide open spaces, green grass, gorgeous sunsets, languid days filled with swimming, braaing and getting to know your neighbours.
