Hi, I've spent a couple of nights at Varschfontein and loved the Tankwa. I'm now thinking of doing a bit of camping and Langkloof attracts me. I gather that there are only two campsites there but the website suggests that this may be a popular place for touring groups to visit. I'm looking for peace and quite. I'm not afraid to camp rough. Should I rather go to one of the "informal" campsites?

We were in Tankwa from 1 Oct to 6 Oct 2011 and camped most of the informal camps. We simply loved it, especially Steenkampshoek. They were still busy with renovations at the furthest Langkloof camp, so that was a bit bad with the staff being there. However friendly they were, we like to be alone.
Schaapwagtersbos and Volmoersfontein were also very good.

I think all parks should have camps like those in Tankwa. It is really a wonderful experience.

Forgot to add that the Tankwa staff were very friendly and helpful.

The only suggestion I have is that they should have a place where one can have a shower, like one at the main park complex.

How is that Langkloof road? I found parts of it fairly rough!

:dance: We were the first guests to stay at Langkloof and it was really awesome. The most incredible vistas and sounds. The kitchen, shower etc per camp site is wonderful, really made a difference. We had a friend with, who made use of the other campsite and feels the same about this special place. There is so much to do around Langkloof that one does not need to travel around the Park if you just want to take it easy. The walking, hiking and birding is tops. :D

A 4 x 4 is needed possbly a 2 x 4 will also make it acoss the river filled with boulders that have got there on their own over the years. The road was not bad at all.
