They have a small tuck shop here where you can buy nice cold cooldrinks, chips & other snacks. They also sell wood & charcoal and you can hire a gas 'skottel braai'.

Mapungubwe/Greefswald

I'm trying to find out which SANParks camp is nearest to the old Greefswald military base and whether it's possible to gain access to what remains of the old base. Thanks.

Leokwe is very close to Greefswald. It is possible to get access to the terrain, since the confluence pick nick site and the lookout point towards Mapungubwe hill is on that site. Very little of the base remains though, only some insignia, and a few remnants of ruins.
