Many thanks son goddin we are really looking forward to our stay as it is somewhere we haven't visited before. The accommodation looks really special and I'm hoping to take some good pics .... Here's hoping the weather is kind to us :)

I think the camp is Agulhas Rest camp and it appears the co ordinates are S 34° 48’45.9” E 19° 56’30.2”. I've entered them into GE and they do seem to be correct.

From the web site:
This small camp is located 10,3km from the Cape Agulhas Lighthouse. The camp was placed and designed to meet high environmental standards and according to the ‘touch-the-earth-lightly’ principles by which, inter alia, development was limited to disturbed sites.

Accommodation comprises four two-bed and four four-bed self-catering chalets. The four bed units comprise two separate bedrooms each with own bathroom (shower and toilet) en-suite.
http://www.sanparks.org/parks/agulhas/tourism/accommodation.php

Some writings about the park I've found on the web:

http://www.yearinthewild.com/our-journey/?step=287

Hope this helps.

The park is on my list of places I need to see, so perhaps if you do book, you'll come back and tell us all about it?

Hi there

Is there anyone who knows if you can leave Agulhus Camp for dinner? It will be our first night in SA and if we can help it we don't want to stop for too many supplies that day ....... ok,I confess, the bottle store will be visited :roll: but if we can get away with going somewhere for dinner that would help us!

Caracal, I know you stayed there a while back - do you know?

Thanks :D

Hi Issy

As we were not going to leave camp I did not really take note of the gate closing time. :redface: I have in fact just made a phone call for you...the gates are manned 24 hrs so yes you may leave the camp for dinner. The offices are in Agulhas itself and are only open until 17h00. Make sure you check in and collect your keys before that .
Enjoy !!! :thumbs_up:

Hi Nelia,

I don't have the map location for you but am sure you would enjoy reading more about the Renosterkop cottages in Caracal's and Buglette's trip reports.

Wishing you a wonderful stay there :D

Aghulus at Xmas 2013

Unread postby JLC » Sun Apr 14, 2013 3:11 pm

We're thinking of hiring a few cottages for a large family Xmas this year about 12 people - can anyone advise if the cottages are close to the beach, how far from civilization and which are the best ones to try to get?

Thanks

There are several types of accommodation
The one is chalets which are on the beach front. Modern and really look nice
We stayed at some refurbished housies that are a short way from the beach and there are three. really thick walled Old farm houses .they are behind a gate to which only the residents have a key .. very quiet and lovely . The beach can be reached by car along a dust road and my what a beach!! secluded plenty place to walk .
God couldn't be everywhere so he made Grandmas

The Agulhas Restcamp with 8 chalets sleeping 24, is right on the beach to the west of the Southern Tip and the village Suiderstrand; 7km from L'Agulhas village with the shops, etc. Two types of cottages - 4 family chalets (two bedrooms) and 4 single chalets (one bedroom); fully equipped. All look the same with a sea view.
