Budget Getaways Review

Appointed on a working farm 4km off the R406 between Caledon and Greyton, Eikebos offers a picturesque and intimate camping experience.

With a grand total of seven stands, all shaded by majestic oak trees and circled by open views of rolling farmland and the Kleinswartberg, it's a far cry from your average municipal facility.

Suitable for the family Jurgens caravan or the happy-go-lucky couple with two-man tent , each stand is equipped with it's own power point and braai area.

The shared ablution block is well appointed and fresh, with attractive stone walls and nice fittings - there are two hot showers and two flush toilets.

Also communal is the new covered lapa area - especially useful if and when the weather decides not to play ball and ideally suited for group functions of anywhere between 40-60 people. There's also the choice of booking the entire campsite and using the lapa and indoor braai for your special function, whether it be birthday, general event or even a country bumpkin wedding. Your host Riette offers a catering service if you do decide to go this route, with potjies, spitbraais or tailormade meals on offer - as well as the option of a bedouin tent if need be... Chat to Riette about the options. 

Sitting 20km from Greyton itself, the Saturday morning market is a no-brainer if you wish to stock up on novel provisions (that is, other than what you would find at your local Spar), such as freshly baked farm bread, pestos and all manner of other home-made gourmet delicacies - who said camping has to be all toil and suffering? Come to think of it, since you've come all this way you might as well also sample one of the many restaurants and coffee stops - where you're likely to bump into one or other corporate buddy from the city.

Several kilos heavier and back under the trees at Eikebos, the balance of your weekend will be filled with long walks on the farm, including a number of biking routes both on the farm and in the surroundings (bring mountain bike), prodding the braai in front of your tent, lining up the next beer, broken here and there by the occasional dip in the pool.

By the sounds of it, Eikebos fills a gap in the much needed camping-in-comfort niche.

"Great - absolutely loved it."

"The host was very kind allowed us us of their conference room as the wind was blowing and it was rather unpleasant outside. The wood is cheap. Lovely grass to play on.The facilities are spotlessly clean. The only negative I found is that there is possibly not enough to do for kids. The grass patch could become quite crowded if the site was full. If we had not imported some friends I think my little one may have been bored. There's no place to swim, we found a dam when we went on a walk but not sure if it can be used for swimming and is about 1-2 km from Campsite. I enjoyed our visit as the campsite was just us and another group. If it had been busier then I think we would all be very cramped."

"We had a wonderful weekend. We even got to watch the rugby and go to the Greyton Market the Saturday morning. The showers were hot and clean and the Lapa area was just what we needed. A relaxing getaway. Will definitely be back with the kids second time around."

"My boyfriend and I booked out the entire campsite to celebrate our birthdays. It was an amazing weekend. Lots to do around the farm and Greyton. The campsite has plenty of shade under the oak trees and the ablutions are beautifully done up and clean. Riette organised the most wonderful spit braai on Saturday night for us and did up the lapa beautifully. It added a really special note to our evening and party. I would recommend Eikebos to anyone wanting a secluded spot to celebrate a special occasion (and definitely use Riette for the catering!) or even just for a quiet weekend away with a few friends and family. I hope to be back soon!"

"The ablutions are excellent and the new indoor braai room is great for a crowd. There are seven campsites but some of them are very small, but all shady and clean. Great cycling, very peaceful, but if looking for hiking then this is not the place for you, as walks are around the farm. Shop has meat and ice for sale as well as wood. Would definitely recommend this place for a group to take over - would have a stunning weekend even in winter."

"Ons het baie lekker gekamp, dankie! Alles word baie mooi netjies en skoon gehou."
