Gouritsmond Caravan Park

Gouritsmond Caravan Park is situated in a little town you will dream about retiring in. Lazy, carefree beach days are then norm here.

But there is actually so much to explore here when it comes to nature as it’s situated in a world biosphere reserve. There are 100 grassed sites with braai facilities, electricity power points and clean ablution blocks.

Witsand West Caravan Park

The first camp as you enter Witsand is ideally situated for those who want to be close to the Breede River Mouth as well as the Blue Flag beach. The Breede has the widest river mouth in South Africa and is ideally suited for a range of water activities, the most loved one here being of course kiting! International kite surfers have been amazed by this place as it provides favourable conditions for practising tricks. They love to come here during summer for the wind and are always pleasantly surprised with the lack of crowds in these parts, something we take for granted! Other water sports like SUPing is also popular and before we forget, fishing! Fishing on the Breede goes hand in hand and the stories you’ll hear around this favourable past time will leave you intrigued.

Witsand Middle Caravan Park

This camp is situated on the eastern end of Witsand right on the beach and offers amazing fishing opportunities from the sand as well as rocks. There is a little tidal pool for swimming and the Blue Flag beach is also walking distance. Towards the east you can walk for many kilometres, making this an ideal retreat if you want to escape for a bit. Of course one of the major drawcards are the whales during winter. The Southern Right Whales flock to St. Sebastian Bay (which is in front of the campsite) each year from July to November to calve in the calm waters and provides breathtaking land-based viewing. Come see for yourself why Witsand is called THE whale nursery of Southern Africa.

Takkieskloof Caravan Park

Takkieskloof is the only one of the municipal campsites that’s not situated by the beach and therefor it’s one of a kind! Here you have the famous Sleeping Beauty mountain peak in the Langeberg Mountain watching over you while you prepare your meal over the fire. The next morning she will still be sleeping as you pack up your tent for another day of adventuring on the back roads. This is a popular stopover between the Klein Karoo in the north and the Garden Route. Intrepid travellers who seeks something off the national road, coming from the east (Mossel Bay), usually head to Herbertsdale and Van Wyksdorp via the Cloete’s Pass. From there to Ladismith and then over Garcia Pass to Riversdale. None of them are ever disappointed by this scenic drive, offering vast Karoo landscapes and rural tranquility. After your stay at Takkieskloof you can continue on with the back road to Heidelberg, or via Gysmanshoek Pass back to Route 62.
