Breede River Camp

A visit to David and Tanja’s camp on the Breede river at Rivierzicht near Robertson yesterday was an eye opener in terms of a well set up camp.  Together with their friends they have occupied a prime riverside site and their camp has all the facilities required for a comfortable outdoor holiday.   Water activities feature prominently, with ongoing fishing (Jordan has caught around 80 kg of fish in a week!) and fun in the sun.  A passing floating restaurant was happy to give just about all the campers a tow down river on their various flotation devices.  It made for a happy scene.

Fernkloof this morning

Our short walk in Fernkloof this morning took place in cool conditions.  Rain threatened and we even had a few drops, but sadly, nothing came of it.  We wandered around the back of Lemoenkop and up the steep steps to the three dams, before returning to the Visitors’ Centre via the Fernkloof Gardens.

The litter at the base of the three dams is a cause for concern and I will forward the picture to the Municipality for their attention.
