As on a previous stay at Bontebok National Park, we were satisfied with the reception and the accommodation; only the light in the ceiling fan was not working and the fan speed could not be adjusted but this was reported at reception before we departed.

Sadly we spent only one night but the peace and quiet, blue sky (we live in London) was wonderful. The aloes were great and we managed to see Bontebok so all in all very good. Would definitely liked to stay longer.

We enjoyed the stay, clean,comfortable and fairly well equipped. Great trails to walk and see the diversity of the natural bush & surrounds. Great bird life. Enjoyed the natural quietness, listening to the river and bird sounds.

The camping facilities were good. The price charged is much higher than other similar camping establishments.

Bontebok National Park Reviewed by Johanna Eksteen from South Africa on 20 October 2009 .
Die Chalets is pragtig. Die natuurskoon is asemrowend. Die visse in die rivier is maar skaam om te byt. Ek was teleurgesteld omrede ons so min bokke gesien het, want toe ons laasjaar by die Kruger Wildtuin was het ek diere gesien wat skrik vir niks. Maar dan moet ek ook objektief wees en besef ons was nie in die Kruger Wildtuin nie.

Snaaks genoeg, met ons vertrek die Vrydagoggend het ek en my man meer bokke gesien as die hele Donderdag. Die ontvangsdame was vriendelik en proffesioneel. Sy het ons mooi verduidelik watter roete om te ry ens. Die groot kaktusse voor die Chalet waar ons oornag het, het my asem weggeslaan.
Die Chalets is lieflik en die natuurskoon en pragtige berge laat 'n mens vergeet van jou sorge. Ek moet volpunte gee rakende die verblyf en skoonheid van die park.

The stay at Bontebok National park was great, the chalets overlooking the Breede River were great. The flowers this tie of year was beautiful and worth visiting. Was a bit disappointed about the walking route that we could not complete due to maintenance been done, but at least it is nice to know the route is well maintained.

Thank you, our family is split between Cape Town and Knysna, so Swellendam is a perfect halfway meeting point. We had an amazing time camping at Bontebok and really enjoyed everything the site had to offer... The ablution facilities are sparkling clean and nice lighting and adequate mirrors for a change... (5 girls in our family!) The river was perfect for swimming and we loved every moment... we'll definitely be back!!

We loved the location - beautiful aloes and very close to the river for swimming and walks. The chalet's are well designed and comfortable and feel remarkably private considering they are in a cluster at the camp. Highly recommended.

The new chalets are really beautiful and very well equipped! There are 2 items that might need attention: The little stones below the decks... my 2 year old son fell off and hit his head badly on the stones almost needing stitches. The shop could maybe stock more necessities like ice.

The camp is of good quality, however the accommodation (specifically the bedding) is not adequate for 4 people. As families tend to visit a game park, I don't understand why the poor quality sleeper couch is used in the bungalow.

The chalets are superb, and well-equipped. the staff are very efficient and friendly, and we had a very peaceful stay. It would be really good to be able to hire a little canoe or boat/ inner tube for the river as we did not realise how much fun it would be for the kids! More information about the river would be helpful, as well as an idea of actual game sightings. We would have liked to see more. Overall, a lovely experience.

Bontebok National Park Reviewed by David Sanders from South Africa on 3 March 2008 .
Although there was an abundance of flies, it did not detract from what was a very enjoyable stay. The accommodation was clean and well presented, everything looked brand new! The bedding and towels were good quality. The park itself is quite and relaxing with an abundance of game, maybe not the Big 5, but great for the little ones.
The river is the main attraction with many families enjoying the cool bathing on a hot March day. This trip was with my brother, here from the UK, and my 10 year old son. I intend returning with my family for a long weekend.
