Unforgettable experience, we really enjoyed it.

Staff went out of their way to help. The food was from the books, even my husband's diet.

Onvergeetlike ondervinding, ons het dit baie geniet.

Personeel het uit hul pad gegaan om te help. Die kos was uit die boeke, selfs my man se dieetkos.

Very disappointing and uncomfortable.

According to the website it states a flush toilet - my picture is a toilet in my home - which is not this sort of pottie you push and then pull to flush. It is very low and in a tiny enclosure. The tent for your shower is tiny too, then a separate one for the pottie, and then another separate tent to dress in - where your suitcase is. They are all separate, so it's not easy to shower and dress, everything is wet and there is nowhere to put anything and you can't step out as someone could see you. The tent where the beds are in is just big enough to almost stand in with two tiny single beds - not normal size ones as my feet hung over, I'm an average height of probably 1,6 m. I took my parents with me - they stayed in their own tent. My mom struggled as there wasn't anything solid to hold onto in the shower or loo etc. No hot water is provided to wash your face etc. and there are no ablutions - so you need to continuously ask for water to wash in or brush your teeth with or use the loo and not wash! Many tents were close, it was easy to hear others pump their potties etc. It's tiny and not luxury at all. Lights go out at 11 pm and there is no waiter service for coffee or tea or even drinks once you leave the "dining tent". The food was also very disappointing - set menus only and it was always cold. If you are a BIG camper take your own things and you'll probably be OK!

Namaqua Flower Skilpad Camp's response

We appreciate every rant and rave as much as we do the fresh air, peace and quiet and big skies!
The Skilpad Flower Camp is not located on a public camp site and therefore everything that is in camp is brought in and everything is removed. In every bit of communication we indicate a chemical flush loo which is another term for a porta-potty. Although we agree they can take some time to adjust to they are very easy to use.

Ps. your 3x3 m dome tent roof height is 2 m and the bed, although slightly narrow, is the normal length - and yes we do provide hot water morning and night in hand basins and showers. Camping is certainly not for everyone though.
