Hi there

I see on the bookings for the park that there is a North and South camp. Which one is the one in picture? http://www.sanparks.org/gallery/v/parks ... y.jpg.html

That is the north camp Jacques....the south camp would be to the right when looking at that picture...
The south camp has more chalets etc and therefore I think it could be a bit busier. Both are great though. :thumbs_up:

Thank you for the response and the welcome Caracal. I just love that picture so I will book for the North camp then.

Jacques

I have stayed at the north Camp they are all Rondovals and pretty small.
Those in the South camp are very much bigger.
Kind regards
JDW

Hi Jacques, The Mrs and I have just spent 12 wonderfull nights in the North Camp. The rondawel was fully equipped for 2 people and serviced daily. By all means if you need lots of space then book into the South camp but otherwise you can not go wrong in the North camp.
I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
Johan

SO and I have stayed at both camps and also have camped.
I preferred the North side in the fairly rustic huts as they are close to the forest and forest trails are just a step from the door.

Have also stayed at both camps (both tent and chalet / cabin) but to be honest would vote for the North Camp as our fave. It gives you a greater sense of being closer to nature and also, you get to see loads of Knysna Louries. :thumbs_up:

You see a few Louries in the south camp too, and the Kingfishers are better! Honestly I don't think it really matters both are great!

Thank you all for your information. My family and I (wife and 4 boys) will be camping for the first time at the Wilderness site. Your preferences have helped me to look at the north camp first.

I will let you know how it goes!
