A lovely secluded setting has been chosen for our camp site. It is located 1 km from the main farm yard of Boplaas in a wooded area next to the mountain stream.

Grass has been planted and ablution facilities erected. A “Donkey”-burner provides hot water to the showers and washing-up facilities and wood is supplied to feed the burner. Braaiwood is provided for the first night, but more can be purchased from Donald.

Not more than six people are allowed per vehicle to secure the peace and tranquillity of our farm.

    Hi. Thank you for opening up your beautiful farm to the general public and nature lovers like me. I spent four days camping in your wonderfull campsite. Your host Donald was most helpfull with knowledge of hiking roetes ect. maggie the dog even made me feel welcome by going with me on my daily walks.Donald even sent me up the ladder which I enjoyed doing for the first time. I have camped at cape nature and piet red beard many times but your farm has that special magic. Is there a special rate for bachelors or is it one price for all. I would like to come and stay at the end of November for at least a week to get that real hel feeling but at R200 a day it just might brake the bank. Can one pay a yearly fee and camp for free or then get a reduced rate. All these questions, sorry just a thought. Thank you again for a very special four day camp at your wonderfull nature reserve. Regards Dean

    Ons het verlede jaar Sept (2010) daar oorgebly (agter by die lapa). Wat ‘n belewenis. Dit was hemels om ‘n stukkie van julle paradys te kon ervaar. Ek en Gerhard Visser beplan om weer later iewers in die jaar ‘n paar nagte te kom kamp.

    Ek is egter baie bekommerd oor die gebied wat deur Natuurbewaring versorg word. Die bosse is besig om die plek totaal toe te groei en een van die dae sal jy niks anders as bosse daar sien nie. Ek het foto’s wat in 1998 geneem is en mens kan nou duidelik sien hoe daardie gebied totaal deur bosse oorgeneem word.

    Dit laat mens wonder wat Natuurbewaring se doel was om die plek te koop.

    Wens so iemand wil weer ‘n tradisionele boerderytjie aan die gang kry in Gamkaskloof.

    Gamkaskloof is altyd in my gedagtes en ek het al menige mens soontoe saamgesleep (party teen hul sin soos my vrou) wat dit dan uiteindelik baie geniet het.

    Bewaar ou Gamkaskloof asseblief vir die nageslag. Sonder dit sal ons baie armer wees.

    Groete

    Ek wil van die geleentheid gebruik maak om almal van Boplaas te bedank vir die heerlike tyd (9-12 Julie 2013) wat ons daar by julle gehad het. Dit was 4 hemelse dae en gewis te kort. Ons beplan om volgende keer vir so 2 weke te kom want daar is so baie wat ons nog wou verken in die klowe.

    Andrè en Lida se gasvryheid en die kuier om hulle houtstofie se vuur was iets besonders.

    Donald het seker gemaak alles loop reg en die kampterrein is in uitstekende toestand. Cape Nature kan gerus daar by julle kom kyk hoe dinge gedoen word.

    Julle het die perfekte balans tussen ‘n natuurkampervaring en voldoende geriewe. Die donkie wat gestook moet word vat my terug na my dae op ons plaas voor daar krag was en dit dra by tot die spesiale atmosfeer van die kloof.

    Nogmaals dankie vir ‘n heerlike ruskans daar by julle en ons sien uit na ons volgende besoek aan Boplaas.

    Vriendelike groete
    Philip & Karin
