Got no tent. Can't camp? No longer the case, intrepid Budget traveler. With the arrival of Wolfkop Camping Villages, the hassle and logistics of a camping weekend is now a thing of the past. In fact, if the blurb, "You only bring food and clothes," is anything to go by, any preconceived idea you have about camping - leaking tents, missing poles and pegs, hard ground and sand fleas - is in for a serious shake up.
To set the scene, what we have here is a 100ha citrus-buchu-rooibos farm located about 20km from Citrusdal, with the campsite located right on the banks of the Olifants River - so we're not talking dodge municipal setting. We're talking wide open spaces, green grass, gorgeous sunsets, languid days filled with swimming, braaing and getting to know your neighbours.
Each 'camping village' (maximum six spread along a 200m stretch) comprises a 7.5/10 square Bedouin free form marquee with an excellent outlook over the water, and one to three (depending on group size) canvas tents pitched underneath and equipped with 3/4 high density foam mattress, cotton percale bedding, blankets, towels. Then, there's a fully equipped kitchen area check list provided, braai grid and utensils, chairs, tables, electric light, cooler box, etc, etc.
Furthermore, every village has its own power point and there are hammocks - lest you forget that camping is hard work. Ablutions hot showers and flush toilet are communal, so is the fridge for the frosties, freezer and microwave. Talk about roughing it in style.
Canoes/kayaks are all available for hire - but bring your own if you have. How this all translates into the real thing we're not sure as we haven't yet put Wolfkop to the test. Instead we surfed the cyber-ether and found the following: "This is definitely a luxury camping site, as they advertise. When they say, just bring your food and drinks they are right! The accommodation is comfortable and quite exclusive as the campsite is not packed at all compared to most other places.
Grootfontein Camping Villages is for the free spirited traveler.
