When you are with a group of good friends, I guess one could be almost anywhere and still have a great time. We had a good time, and I think the kids had even a better time. There is plenty to do to keep young and old entertained. The campsite supplied a raft, canoes and a “foefie” slide.That was great fun and I think almost everyone went down it at least once.
Other activities include mountain biking (but beware there are plenty of devils thorns),swimming and going for leisurely walks on the farm. We camped at Sipres camp (which is probably not the best camp, but it has big flat lawns where one can play sports such as volleyball, soccer etc.
There were a couple of gripes though.The first being no ones fault. The mosquitoes! Wow, when I awoke the next morning it looked like I had a mosquito wallpaper on the inside of my tent. Don’t go to sleep without closing the fly net on your tent, and take plenty of Tabard. Even the people that zipped their fly nets closed looked like they almost got eaten alive. We were there middle of March, and in all fairness that is probably the worst time of the year for Mosquitoes in the Cape.
Then if you are very finicky about your ablution facilities, then this is probably not the campsite for you. Although the toilets were clean, we felt that there were way to little toilets for the amount of people. Maybe the campsite is not always as busy as when we were there. The doors also cannot lock, so if you are paranoid about someone walking in on you, don’t go there.
I also just heard by chance that there is no drinking water, so be sure to pack.
