For the thrill-seekers, a whimsical foefie slide awaits, offering a splash of excitement. Inner tubes, canoes, and rafts beckon, facilitating memorable fun. It’s a tapestry of outdoor pursuits that ignite the spirit of exploration.
As twilight descends, the campsite transforms into a cozy haven illuminated by campfires. Each plot boasts a dedicated fireplace, where stories are shared, marshmallows roasted, and friendships kindled.
Firewood, an essential companion for these gatherings, can be conveniently purchased from the onsite farm shop. The shop thoughtfully stocks a selection of basic necessities, ensuring your stay is nothing short of comfortable.
Modern comforts in a natural oasis
While Rivierplaas immerses you in nature’s embrace, it doesn’t compromise on modern comforts. The ablution facilities are not just clean and neat but also wheelchair-friendly, promoting inclusivity.
All bathrooms are equipped with solar-powered lights, but apart from this, guests can enjoy the luxury of complete darkness, perfect for stargazing until late at night. Bathrooms also offer hot water showers thanks to a donkey-operated hot water system, thoughtfully managed by the camp’s administration. This of course makes dishwashing while camping, an effortless task.
