About
Description
Gariep is the perfect stopover between Gauteng and the Cape, 180 km south of Bloemfontein, just off the N1. Situated on the banks of Gariep Dam, the largest dam in South Africa, and bordering the Gariep Dam Nature ...More Reserve, it straddles the borders of three provinces, namely Free State, Northern Cape and Eastern Cape. The caravan park consists of 106 sites, all with electricity and serviced by two communal ablutions and a laundry. There are also 16 luxury caravan sites each with their own ablution facilities. Accommodation consists of 44 two or three bedroom chalets newly refurbished, and 12 luxury one or two bedroom chalets. Our on-site restaurant, the Quenna Bistro, can seat up to 120 persons, and boasts a ladies bar and outside deck with a splendid view. Activities and facilities include: tennis and a driving range, fishing (own equipment), kiosk and swimming pool. Less

An excellent stop-over or a place to spend a few days rest and relaxation. We stayed in the luxury camp area which provides an element of privacy and the ability to have your own shower, toilet and kitchen area.

Ideal for a getaway weekend. Chalets are beautifully furnished, clean and the attention to detail will make any guest feel like royalty. There's also more than enough to keep the kids busy with. We will definitely see you again!
