What our guests have said about this accommodation

In general the experience was awesome. Maintenace of ablution facilities is a problem and can improve.
William H van Dongen
Not for the faint hearted but a wonderful camp particularly when the mountains are a rockery of flowering plants. The protection of the natural bush makes sheltered camping and the Nama style ablutions are great (the water is cold). We will visit again.

A lot of vervet monkeys at Potjiespram, which are a real nuisance

the camp was basic as expected and obviously the river had changed the area during the rainy season, so the camp was enclosed by thick bush and river not easily accessed. Noise from mining activity was intrusive.
Gert Kalis
The lady at the Transformation Gate was a huge embarrassment to myself and my felow guests. She was unappreciated unfriendly and rude. I mentioned that to reception thereafter where we signed in and make other payments.

We changed camping to Sendelingsdrift instead, which was a huge plus on our schedule as it was late when we arrived.
L Grassow
To me this was the best camp site. Very quiet and well protected from the wind. The apes were a problem and nowhere were signs up to warn people about them. Lots of birds. We stayed 3 nights.

We stayed in Potjiespram in December and now again in April. One word AWESOME!! We'll be back.......De Hoop is next!
Mareta Esterhuizen
The campsite at Potjiespram was very nice! Privacy was great, and even though you couldn't see the river from the campsite, the access to it was easily accessible. Ablutions neat and effective, and more than we expected. What a great time!!

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!
