Women and camping is like oil and water, the two just DONT gel very well together. I’m quite the city slicker myself, so being in some bush without a proper bed or electricity is not ideal in anyway for me (and many others I’m sure). I did though find a resort that offers an experience that I would try out with my girls for a “ladies get away” sort of trip.
Nkwe Pleasure Resort
Nkwe Pleasure Resort offers a range of accommodation options, from caravan sites with or without electricity, to self-catering fixed caravans, cottages, chalets and cabins. The fixed caravans give you the fun of Caravanning – all you need to bring is your own linen, towels and food, but the caravan does come with amenities such as cutlery, crockery, small fridge and a two-plate stove. Situated on old farm grounds, just adjacent to the resort is a natural rock pool and waterfall.
The campsite itself is clean with ablution blocks in walking distance as well as a convenience store.
Start at R240 per night for two people per caravan site.
Tents are charged at R100 per person per night with a R50 extra charge per night per site with electricity.
Caravan hire is around R300 per night per couple.
A deposit of R150 is required and will be refunded when you check out.
The cabins are R900 per night for four people
The six-bed chalet going at R1 500 per night for right people (R250 deposit required here).
