The ablution facilities at the camp site are large, luxurious and very generous.  The ablutions seperate mens and ladies facilities, with showers, basins and toilets.  There is also a facilitiy for disabled campers.   Hot water is generated by electric geysers, so there is always enough hot water to go around.  Toilet paper and soap are supplied.  The ablutions are constantly kept clean and neat.

Each camp site has its own tap and the water is drinkable.

Each camp site has its own barrel braai.  Braai grids are not supplied, so make sure you bring your own.  Wood can be purchased from the owner and will be delivered directly to your site.

This is a very well organised site with ample space on each site and plenty of privacy.  The grounds are large and there is loads of space for everyone.  The heated swimming pool is an absolute hit with both young and old.  The kids had a wonderful time being kept busy with the swimming pool, putt-putt course, trampoline and jungle gym.  Fishing can be done from the beach.  With the kids entertained and the husband out fishing, it was a very peaceful time for mom.  The lattice fencing around each site ensures privacy and the ablutions were first rate.  Well done on a well organised site.
