We engaged with Total South Africa to initiate a process to upgrade our Filling Stations in the Park and a contractor has been appointed to start with the work on the Filling Station at Twee Rivieren that will commence shortly. The upgrade will include the replacement of the underground fuel tanks, driveway, water drainage system and fuel pumps. The project will be completed over a period of three months with construction work to take place daily between 08h00 and 16h30 from Mondays to Saturdays. During this process we will only sell diesel fuel from a temporary above ground supply tank that will be situated in the camp reception area. It is not possible to store and sell unleaded petrol from a similar tank system and we hereby request park visitors to fill up their vehicles on route to the park at Askham that is situated 74kms from the park on the R360. Diesel and Unleaded fuel will be available at our other two main camps Mata Mata and Nossob. We look forward to your visit to the park and please accept our apology for any inconvenience that you might experience with fuel supply at Twee Rivieren during your visit. We aim to improve our facilities in the park for the benefit of our valued customers.

Bennie Barnard Dec 2019
Very comfortable. At the reception you get all the information necessary for your stay. The restaurant was was good. All over the place nice people.
Ellen remmerswaal Dec 2019
Camping sites are adequately laid out and consist of the basic requirements (Braai, power point, water, rubbish bin and lights). Facilities are well maintained and kept clean. Reception and staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurant atmosphere is good and food are well prepared. Two campers indicated that the blue power adapting plugs are not available in the store and maybe worthwhile to consider keeping some stock. I will definitely be back.

Rooms clean and tidy. Well serviced. Private and quiet. One request please; can the gates to the park be opened earlier so the sunrise can be experienced inside and not outside the park. A lovely spot. Well be back
