Budget Getaways Review

Kam’Bati, a 5km drive off the N2 and 25km from Swellendam, is aimed at nature lovers and families out for a relaxed weekend of caravaning and camping alongside the Riviersonderend and Breede River.

It's a privately-owned resort framed by fynbos and aloes, and sitting peacefully under giant eucalyptus trees, with grassed sites - all with power points.

 

Apart from the camping options, you've also got the choice of five self-catering cabins, ranging from a two sleeper couples cabin to larger two-bed units, all fitted with linen and DSTV.

Further convenience is provided by way of a sociable lapa. The 'state of the art' ablution facilities are clean, with gas geysers for hot water.

There is also a small function venue equipped with audio and video, an industrial kitchen, and a veranda that overlooks the river, with tables, chairs and a built-in braai. As such Kambati can be booked for small conferences and other occasions.

Kambati is activity-packed and a hit among kids. The attractions include two swimming pools with a 60m supertube, a challenging 4x4 route laid out along the river, short walks, birdwatching (including fish eagle), and swimming, canoeing and fishing in the river - apparently the latter is very good, with carp, bass, eel, springer and barbel in abundance. 

We haven't been there yet, but from what we hear Kambati is just the place for families and friends and other happy campers.

"Although is was beginning of winter I received a warm welcome and got phoned on the way to make sure I was good in my travel getting there. Will definitely go there again, but this time in summer. Beautiful and relaxing!"

"We were truly blown away by the resort. Although we didn't camp and stayed in one of the cottages (also lovely and clean with thoughtful additions), our son needed the toilet when down at the pool. Going into the communal facilities provided for campers, I was pleasantly surprised to see very clean and tidy facilities. This is quite rare when camping. The setting was picturesque and a brilliant answer to the stress of the city and our call for relaxation. All the staff were very friendly and always available. A fantastic place, especially if you've young children as there's plenty for them to do and lots of space riding of trikes and bikes in a safe setting."

"Amazing Amazing! Best getaway we've ever had. Nice and relaxing with lots to do for the kids. Facilities are fantastic and always clean. Kids loved the supertube and paintball and husband went fishing the whole weekend. Would highly recommend it to anyone that want to get away from the city rush!"

"Arriving in Kambati was a windy one. When we got our tent up (which nearly blew into the river) we were sorted. It's really beautiful and having breakfast with the river running alongside you is fantastic! There is a TV in the Lapa so avid sport fans won't miss any games. The only surprise we encountered was that there is only one ablution for all 100 sites and it's unisex. So limit the noises and cover up. But a very relaxing weekend."

"This was one of the best camp sites I have ever visited. Facilities are clean and staff are friendly. Also very safe and enjoyable for the kids."

"Great Easter weekend at Kam'Bati. Facilities are excellent and bathrooms always clean! I will defintely recomend this resort. Kids enjoyed the farm life for the weekend."

"Nice setting. New ablution being built. Friendly staff who are always available."

"Net een woord om alles te beskryf" 'Uitstekend'. Ian, Francois en Jaco Badenhorst - julle is n wenspan en ons as Tygerbergstreek het dit geniet om paasnaweek saam met julle te deel. Ons sal defnitief weer by julle kom kuier."
