Garden Route camping

Post by Cooper » 26 Mar 2014 17:08

Hi Everybody
Has any one camped at Swartvlei campsite near Sedgefield.
We are planing for December and I could really use some first hand info.
We're also looking at Lake Pleasant Campsite.
Perhaps you can recommend a decent spot somewhere in the Knysna area?
We need a good base from which to explore the area between J-Bay and George.

Thanks Guys
Jason

Dankie Alex,
Ek het gaan loer daar. Ek's bly daar's darm een ou wat weet hoe lyk Afrika suid van die Limpopo.
Wel, ek was in 1981 laas in die Kaap, so dis seker nou maar tyd. Noorde toe hou ons vir die winter maande.
Hoop jy's tevrede met jou tyres.

Goed gaan.

Hallo Jason,

Ons is ook daar in Knysna (River Club Chalets) vanaf 13 tot 19 Des, maar nie met die Patrol nie. Ons gaan met die Nissan Juke 4WD. Hy kan darem daai lekker bergpaadjies en sand duine (J-Bay se Brakkeduine) hanteer. Oor watter tydperk is julle daar? Miskien kan ons 'n dag se outing saam aandurf... :blonde:

Hi Thabbies
Ons gaan seker eers van die 20ste af daar aan kom - wil eers deur Baviaanskloof ry.
Maar ons sal nader aan die tyd gesels.

Groetnis
