In the heart of the Citrus orchards on the riverbank lies Rivercamp, the place to be if you are looking for the tranquil beauty of nature.

Rivercamp campsite are situated 20km from Citrusdal and consists of 2 campsites equipped with communal kitchen and private ablution facilities as well as 2 braai areas. Dogs are welcome if you book both sites.

The 2 campsites can be booked as a whole for complete privacy.

Seeing as the sites are so close to the river we are closed winter time because the river floods the camp site.
*NOTE that the kitchen only provides electricity and water.

The campsite is huge. Lush green grass and plenty of shade.The ablutions are in a stone building. There are 2 bathrooms with a huge shower, wash basin and toilet, There are also plenty of hooks and a bench for changing. There is also a nice kitchen area with electrical plugs and a double sink and plenty of hot water.
The campsite is on the banks of the Oliphants river and is quite far upstream, so the quality of the water in the river is very good. The water temperature was a pleasant 22 degrees, so very nice for swimming, which we did plenty of as on Wednesday is was 42 degrees outside.

There are 2 braai area's with a fire pit and an electrical plug point and a light at each. I presume this more or less differentiates the two campsites.


Types of accommodation:

2 Campsites for maximum 16 people

Facilities described:

Braai areas x 2, grass covered, water, kitchen area.
