Rhemardo Church CampLimpopo Provinsie hou sover die rekord vir die meeste bestemmings van ek begin tel het. Dis wat gebeur as jy van warm vakansie wil hou – neuk noord! Maar hierdie keer het ons nie die plek gekies nie. Dit was Philadelphia gemeente se jaarlikse kerk kamp, en ons ‘kamp groepie’ het besluit om saam die groot mense te gaan. Hulle het vir ‘n deel namens ons betaal, so ons kon nie nee sĂȘ nie :-) » Read more: Rhemardo Church Camp

Mount Amanzi

Yes yes, we go to someplace near Hartbeespoort Dam quite often, but this area is just so beautiful!! The lodge is on the foot of the massive Magalies mountain, just outside the small resort town Hartbeespoort. The town’s name means ‘pass of the hartbees’, (a species of antelope) in Afrikaans. » Read more: Mom’s Birthday Weekend

The last time we came here we enjoyed it so much that we decided to come here again, but this time in the Summer. We choose the long weekend, but left out of our budget a few things – holiday tariffs are more expensive, everything was fully booked, and the only available place was a caravan camping stand with electricity, a roof and place for 6 people. We only had a small tent. » Read more: Buffelspoort Long Weekend

BuffelspoortBuffelspoort is one of the ATKV group of holiday resorts. The audit company where a friend works arranged to have their annual company weekend here. We left for the 120km drive to North West province at about 16:00 on Friday afternoon, and had to fight our way through the center of Pretoria city in peak end-of week traffic. We only arrived at our chalet at about 19:00. » Read more: Buffelspoort Weekend
