Bring your camping gear & tent and enjoy this unique Camp Site situated on the edge of a mountain stream and large dam. It offers a thatched lapa & braai area; a separate toilet & shower (hot & cold) and a dishwashing area. Exclusively booked for 1 group of campers at a time.

The space

The site allows for excellent game viewing as many of the plains game, such as kudu, impala, giraffes and eland drink at the dam or at the stream flowing from it. Also, if you like bird watching, many of the African wetland birds are frequent visitors: jacana's, egrets, kingfishers and occasionally a fish eagle couple can be spotted.

Guest access

Guests are invited to enjoy the entire 1,000 HA (10 square km) of the Syringa Sands Private Game Farm on foot or bicycle. We are a nature farm - we regret no self -drive or quadbikes; instead there are 2 marked walking trails or guests can arrange for a game drive in our game viewing vehicle or a guided game walk with Sean or Alex.

Interaction with guests

Alex and Sean check in with their guests daily, just to make sure everything is ok. They would be happy to assist with the organisation of outings in the area such as Big Five game drives at Welgevonden (subject to availability), horse & elephant safari's a visit the nearby Cheetah Ranch etc.

A very peaceful setting with plenty to do. The gravel road there was challenging, because of the heavy rain, but we had a capable off-road vehicle to get us to the campsite. Fishing from the boat was fun and done with rods and lures of a variety to choose from under the lapa. The fire place is laid out perfect, we made a potjie a had a barbecue the weekend. Bird life is rich. Going again next year!

We had a lovely camping trip at Syringa Sands private camp site. Alex and Sean were extremely generous hosts. It's well set up with a large thatched lapa to keep you sheltered from the sun or rain, with a large rustic table and chairs. Hot showers too. We only saw other visitors from the cottage once, and had the dam to ourselves. My kids loved the row boat and the fishing was good. Sean kindly took us on a game drive to see the farm and the rare roan antelope they breed, and it was very relaxed and informative. He also helped lend us rods and bait and showed us where the fishing was best! We took our bicycles and had a lovely ride around the game farm.

During our trip through South Africa, Botswana and Namibia this was our favourite stay. Good facilities and two unforgettable nights in the midle of a wildlife farm. Alex and Sean were lovely and even took us on a game drive through the farm.

Alex and her husband Sean are a Dutch/SA couple that have taken up game farming 5 years ago. We enjoy an outdoors lifestyle, the SA sunshine, walking, hiking, mountain biking as well as African travel in our Landrover and roof top tent. As much as we love the peace and quiet on the farm, it is always a pleasure to share our passion for wildlife and Africa with visitors.
