What our guests have said about this accommodation

Tanya de wet
There was not much game to view. The birdlife was interesting. The accommodation was clean.There were a lot of flies however.
Esther Eybers
Swimming facilities poor, toilets neat and clean
Jo Vergunst
We had a great time. Very peaceful.
Nicolene Vermeulen
Knowing the area we did not expect to have a great animal experience. This park attracts those who enjoy the outdoor tranquil experience. The chalets are well situated an looking over the Breede River, well equipped and very comfortable. We could have stayed another night! We saw Bontebok and Rooi Hartebeest and sat for 40 minutes watching a Secretary Bird find his dinner in the veld. That was an exceptional sighting whilst on the circle route between 6 and 7pm. The view of the Langeberg Mountains in the distance from my bed in the morning was lovely!
Mr C Haller
Our stay at Bontebok Park was very enjoyable and though there were not a lot of game to see, the facilities were exceptionally clean, the camp sites set out very well and the staff friendly and efficient. This has been our second camping trip at the park and we will return again and again because of the peace, the clean ablutions and the positive experience we've had. Thank you!
Beverly Senekal
The arrival was great and the park was fantastic.
Elmie van Zyl
We enjoyed our 4 day stay. Found that wild life very few. Only saw Bontebuck and one Zebra.Also no toilet facilities at river edge camp - which is a pity.Lovely place but need some money invested to make us come back.Thank youvan Zyl family
Erick Senekal
Lekke gekuier!
Braam de Vries
In short the reception were friendly and helpful. The camp properly maintained and clean.I will return to Bontebok park
Mike McCarthy
A warning about the rough roads could be given.We found walking the most enjoyable. The bird life is very good.The flowers are very difrent.A book on the Park, giving its history should be in the shop. I found one in Swellendam.Bird and flower books would be handy.We enjoyed our two day stay and could have made it three if we had the time.
William Wilkinson
The Chalet was beautiful. The setting was amazing. The service was great. I only had one problem and that was that the road from the reception office to the chalets were in a horrible state. My poor Golf got a couple of scratches underneath and on the side of its body, but other than that there were no problems.
Heather Dukas
The accommodation was spotless and well appointed. The chalet was well stocked with crockery and cutlery. The walks were well kept and signposted and the gardens well maintained - overall it was one of the best camps and reserves we have seen for a very long time. The staff were friendly and the only drawback was they serviced the units very late in the day ( afternoons) and we told them to leave ours as we wanted to relax. They also wanted to change the towels daily which is nice but not eco-friendly and not Parks Board policy. We told the staff when we left what a wonderful experience we had had; the place itself is lovely (on the Breede River), the birds (50 species identified), the buck and tortoises were great - a good place to go to relax! Will definitely go again!

Fantastic travel agent for African safari family trip!
Wow! Shann was and is fantastic! She figured out a way to make our entire trip work. We are going on a 2 week trip to South Africa and Botswana. She really helped tie it all together as a wonderful, cohesive trip. She is super nice and super smart and very knowledgeable. She is also flexible and thoughtful, etc., etc. When the chips were down (and we literally were considering pulling the plug on the whole trip), she found a way to make the entire itinerary work and got us excited about our wonderful adventure! Highly recommend!
