ELEVEN CAMPSITES, ALL WITH ELECTRIC PLUG POINTS
This small, beautiful secluded campsite is tucked away at the bottom of Riverbend along the Umtentweni riverbank. Access is down a fairly steep tarred road which passes through a pretty forested hillside.
Campers will be pleased with all electric grass sites, portable braais available, level ground and large canopy trees.
The ablution buildings have 3 toilets, 3 showers and a bath. There are also 3 double sinks for washing up. Municipal hot and cold water.
The campsite is ideal for holiday makers who are looking for a quiet get-away in delightful surrounds right alongside the Umtentweni river.
There is small vlei nearby which is home to a number of water birds. We have seen Egyptian Geese, hammerkop, African black duck, reed cormorant, pied & brown hooded kingfishers, little egrets, grey & purple herons, striated heron & hadeda ibis to mention a few.
To ensure that everybody is able to enjoy the serenity of this riverside campsite there is a strict no noise/or music policy.
You are welcome to bring & launch your own small rivercraft/canoe to enjoy the exploring river. We also have a few canoes available for hire. We advise that only small electric motors should be used on the river. The river level is dependant on whether the river mouth is open or closed. When we have had a lot of rains in the area the river level will probably be low whereas in the dry winter months the river level is likely to be high.
Fishing : mullet in the river, and the small dam is a lovely beginners fishing spot where you are almost guaranteed to catch lots of little fish. (I’m told they even eat chocolate buns!)
