The hidden Gems of Campsites

Hear the rivers flow
Birds singing in the tree
Like the sea breeze blow
Set you mind and soul free

Take a walk on the sand
Feel the wind through your hair
Take your lovers hand
Know that love is in the air….

In need of a get- a -way? These camping sites rock.

Koningskop – Citrusdal

At Koningskop, camping is a must since they offer such a variety of sites. There are 37 sites, all on grass and mostly in the shadow of old oak trees.  Some of the sites have a degree of privacy (you need to book early) while others are laid out for larger groups wanting to enjoy each other’s company. A calm and peaceful atmosphere is created by the river which flows through the campsite; also the lack of cell phone reception is a blessing. The sites are suitable for caravans, tents and 4×4 trailers, each equipped with an electric point. Swimming pools and hiking trails can also be enjoyed at this magnificent holiday facility.
