Kon­ingskop, Citrusdal

Tuckshop across the dam

The web site is very user-​friendly with a good lay-​out of the camp sites and book­ings grid avail­able, or phone friendly Office & Shop Man­ager Frieda at 022 921 3198.

Kon­ingskop is lit­er­ally on top of the Pieke­nier­skloof pass – as you reach the top from Cape Town’s side, Kar­doe­sie (restau­rant) on your RHS, turn left at Elands­fontein sign and fol­low the farm road (a few km’s) until you see the Kon­ingskop sign on RHS.

This must be one of the loveli­est camp sites I have seen in a very long time. In my opin­ion the best stands to book are 26, 27 & 29 (on top), 24, 25 and 26 are also good – these sites over­look the beau­ti­ful dam and swim­ming pool area. Ideal if you have smaller kids as there is a jun­gle gym and you can watch them from your camp­site. The path lead­ing to the shop is in sight. These sites are 95% shaded by mas­sive oak trees. This is cer­tainly the first camp site where I did not lay boil­ing in my tent – ever – and that was in Feb­ru­ary! Find the canoe avail­able for all to use – a nice big one for the family.

The other sites are 100% grassy – lovely lush green grass. If you book those sites take along your gazebo and you will be fine. The ablu­tion facil­i­ties are new and clean. The toi­let doors are just some­how too close to the toi­lets result­ing in a head bash if you are not care­ful. The uni­sex show­ers are spa­cious and lovely tiled and clean. The shower’s heat con­trol needs some atten­tion but over­all, a good expe­ri­ence.

Do not miss the chance to hike up the moun­tain to see the Bush­man paint­ings. There are two sites in close prox­im­ity. It is a stiff hike and our smaller chaps could not keep up so take along a back­pack. Remem­ber lots of sun block, hats and pro­tec­tive cloth­ing as the sun is relent­less in this region. The cam­era is a must! Once you have seen the last Bush­man art – return on the same route down (eas­ier). We took the longer wind­ing route – after first get­ting lost as there was a recent veld fire obscur­ing the trail — and ended up walk­ing quite a dis­tance! The hike is worth the get­ting back to camp and jump­ing into the cold moun­tain pools.

The shop is also very handy to have around cater­ing from tooth brush to ice cream. There is wood and ice. Bring your own meat to braai. Mobile braai drums on each site are there – just bring your grid.

Moun­tain bike trails and 4×4 trails – enquire at the office for maps, costs and indem­nity forms. Our group got stuck on the moun­tain result­ing in a res­cue by the farmer in his mas­sive trac­tor. What an ordeal. For­tu­nately no injuries!

If relax­ing in the shade is your thing with a beau­ti­ful view, hik­ing to see real bush­man paint­ings, moun­tain bik­ing, 4×4, canoe­ing and more, this is the place to be!
