Bontebok Riverside Camp now open for season

Date: 2011-11-07

The campsite has been closed since 2008 due to the flooding of the Breede River passing through the camp. The site will now be opening seasonally for six months of every year from November to April.

Each camp sleeps six, starting at a base rate (for two adults) of R180 per night. Additional adults are charged R58 per person per night, and R29 per child per night.

“We are excited about the re-opening of the Riverside Campsite. We realise that many people were great fans of this site in particular within the park, so we are happy to be able to invite these loyal fans back to the park to take in the exceptional beauty of the Breede River,” says Park Manager, Bulelwa Msengi.

Visitors should bring their own camping gear, and please note that no caravans are allowed on these specific sites.
