Waterval Campground

We found this camp spot on Airbnb as Jaco and his wife also rent out fully equipped cabins. On their farm ground there are undefined spots where you can camp; even wild camping in the bush! Jaco is more than happy to direct to a spot of your liking, near a river or all alone on the top of a hill.

We paid R300 for 2 pax and a truck (off season) and using the bathroom of one of the cabins. Price depends on season, camp spot of your liking. Best to sent a message to Jaco prior to your arrival to check availability at +27 78 823 5196
