per person sharing a tent
If you think that having no tent should stop you from actually going camping, think again. This is longer the case with the arrival of Grootfontein Camping Villages. The hassle and logistics of a camping weekend in the Citrusdal Valley is now a thing of the past. The slogan, “You only bring food and clothes,” shakes up any preconceived idea you have about camping -leaking tents, missing poles and pegs, hard ground and sand fleas.
To set the scene, we have here a 100ha citrus-buchu-rooibos farm located about 20km from Citrusdal, with the campsite located right on the banks of the Olifants River. We’re talking wide open spaces, green grass, gorgeous sunsets, languid days filled with swimming, braaing and getting to know your neighbours.
From take the N1 direction Paarl. Take the N7 turnoff (left) toward Malmesbury. Continue on the N7 for 175km. Take the turn-off right from the N7 highway towards Citrusdal. When you enter Citrusdal, stop at the first stop street and then turn right on Keerom rd and carry on driving for 20km. You will see the entrance to the Grootfontein Campsite as it is a big white sign on the right hand side of the road. Turn right there and drive straight down to river where you will find the campsites.
