We had a wonderfull 3 night stay at the new chalets. We walked on the beach, rode our bikes in the park, visted the stone cairn and looked at the ship wreck. The chalets are great and the view from the deck is breathtaking. You can lie in bed and see the same view.

It started to rain on the last night, so this was aperfect opportunity to make a fire in the jetmaster!

I'm thrilled to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the lovely chalets. It really is a stunning setting.

:( Just been told by Central Reservations that Agulhas camp accomodation has to be directly booked with the camp??? I can't find this information anywhere on the website ...... the number they have given me is 028 435 6068 but when I called it all I got was a very confused gate guard!!!! I then tried the number on the "contact us" section of the park info (Tel: +27 (0)28 435 6222) and was told to call 012 4289111 - but that's central reservations!!!! I can't use the online booking system yet as I want to book to September next year. :evil:

Can anyone help me :pray: :pray:

Hahahaha :lol: ,

I guess if one of us does not stop apologising, both of us will be apologising the whole day :mrgreen:

About bookings, you need to make bookings at central reservation because Agulhas National Park does not do bookings at the park anymore. You can call the Cape Town number as well on 021 422 2816.

In the future if customers are requested to make their bookings with Agulhas National Park, please get the name of the person so that we can report her/him to their Supervisor.

Hope I have been of assistance icurrie.
Have a lovely evening :gflower:

Thanks Michelle, :D actually it's all your fault that we are doing Agulhas :lol: i read your report and then what we were hoping to do before going to KTP fell through so we decided to go to Tankwa with a side visit to De Hoop. We were going to stay at Swellendam for two nights and then ,....... in the middle of the night ....... I remembered your trip report and a decision was made!!! Russ had no real say in the matter :lol: ..... but I'm not telling him that!! :whistle:

Hi Icurrie,

Hope you enjoy the most southern point of South-Africa. I used to visit that area in the late 60 - 70's quite often and have fond memories of holidays at either Agulhas and Struisbaai. If you want to go for a swim, the best spots will be east of Agulhas, west is ice-cold and freezing. :thumbs_up:
