Lang Elsie's Kraal Rest Camp

The Lang Elsie's Kraal restcamp, situated on the banks of the Breede River, is the first rest camp in South African National Parks to be built according to a "Touching the Earth Lightly" design. Named after a Khoe-Khoe Chieftain who lived there with her clan in the 18th century, the camp of 10 units provides pristine scenery of the park, Breede River and Langeberg Mountains - a perfect rest stop for visitors.


Each unit of the Lang Elsies Kraal rest camp boasts majestic views of the Breede River valley and Langeberg mountains, from private sun-decks. There are 10 units accommodating up to four people with two single beds (double bed on request) and a double sleeper couch.

Universal Access Chalets

Universal access is a key principle applied in the planning of the camp. All 10 units have ramps throughout and are accessible to wheelchairs. Two of the 10 units are designed with bathrooms and living spaces specially adapted to special-needs requirements.
