I was lucky enough to be taken on a flight up the West Coast recently and spotted this nicely positioned campsite from the air, so headed there to suss it out. Here’s what I think:

It is brilliantly positioned – very close to Cape Town and right on the ocean. There are plenty of cottages and campsites, all of which are situated in close proximity to the sea with incredible views over the bay, rocks and ocean. The complex also seems to be well-equipped with a tidal pool for safe swimming; a fairly decent sized conference facility; communal lapa area, etc.

However, this is where it starts to lose its appeal. The complex is big and I could think of nothing worse than having my quiet camping escape coincide with someone’s wedding or family reunion.

I also have a slight aversion to municipal campsites – they tend to attract large numbers of people and have this over-used, drained and worn out feel about them.

And finally, to top it off, I’m admittedly not a massive fan of the West Coast in summer, so really only see myself truly appreciating what this spot has to offer out of wedding and wind season – perhaps spontaneously on a non-rainy weekend just as the spring flowers begin to bloom…

    I am this weekend ending off my hols with a weekend at Ganzekraal. Started at Ou Skip Melkbos, then moved on to Oostewal in Langebaan…en route home touched on at Ganzekraal. This is my first visit to the resort and agree with above writer….a beautiful place looks serene ….till it fills up for a weekend. If rules are adhered to it will make it pleasant for all….music is blaring from all angles. However, I will try it again.

      This was my first and last time at Ganzekraal this past weekend. PLEASE NOTE ALL CARAVAN And CAMPERS, If you love nature, the ocean, need a break from work, if you have children,looking for a relax time, then this is NOT the place to be. Absolute bizarre. This is such a lovely place, so beautiful,its a BIG petty there is no control over the weekend makers noise and actions. My family and I feel threatened all the time. Best part was when we packed up on Sunday, campers not far from pulled out an air riffle and start target practice at the seagulls and beer cans. My daughter is 8 and my son is 5,playing not far from there, was not left with any good memories.Hopefully this will move management apply more sticker rules for dedicated campers.

        Thank you for this very helpful feedback! This was also our concern about this campsite – beautiful setting, but it tends to attract large, rowdy crowds that do not go away for quiet, restorative weekends.

    Very nice camping site absolutely devine

    I had been looking for campsites near to home for easy weekend breaks without having to travel too far and have now stayed twice at Ganzekraal. Absolutley love it. The view’s and setting are unique.

    However the ablutions are a bit old and basic but they do have cleanup staff on duty on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. I would avoid going there over very busy periods and also in early summer when the South East wind could make it unpleasant.

    Loud music could also be a problem and on our last visit one party was playing very loud music with a heavy bass that revererated around the whole campsite. However when I approached them and requested they turn the music off, they apologised and then silence ensued.

    Ganzekraal has been my camping destination for the past 20 years. Yes I agree if rules are adhere to then it would be pleasant for all but this is only a foolish dream. Ganzekraal is a Municipal resort therefore it is very basic and should never be compared for example to a ATKV. Loud music is a common problem all over but I have always and I still solve this problem by persistently harassing management about it as they are the people who makes the rules.

    • jayneholness says:

      Apparently, they are incredibly difficult to get hold of and have a reputation for not answering phones. I cannot suggest anything, but to keep trying.

    • DissapointedByron says:

      OMW. Getting hold of them is virtually impossible. I have been trying for the last month. NO LUCK!!

    • annalita says:

    Ons was die naweek deel van karavaan klub en was by ganzekraal wat n wonderlike kamp die uitsig kan nie beter nie. Ablusies nie modern maar baie skoon as jy vroeg oggend of laat aand stort kry jy warm water. Moet se harde musiek van ander kampers is gehoor gelukkig was dit by ander deel van kamp en nie gepla nie. Glo die klub sal weer daarheen gaan.

  8. Michelle says:

    Reception is really pathetic. Tried calling 6 times and no answer. Won’t ever be using your service ever. If your reception is this bad how bad will the site be. No thank you.
