We stayed in TWEE RIVIEREN REST CAMP FA2/4A (FAMILY COTTAGE) 26/12/2011 27/12/2011 no. 20 (Charmaine did the booking for us)Bat

Werner Furter

We will try to stay longer next time we visit. The new gate centre at Twee Rivieren is looking stunning!

WF OOSTHUIZEN

Hi, the camping facilities in Twee rivieren, Nossop and mata mata were good. The roads were very rutted. Game viewing was difficult due to long grass and deep roads. Your vehicle needs height to optimise viewing! Regards, Bill Stephens

Bill Stephens

The aircon was not working properly . We were allocated the chalet closest to the road when the camp was not yet full.Surely these should be the last option ?The pool was not functioing up to standard .

M. Mosca

We had a great time. The camping site was peaceful and clean. Was a real pleasure.

Herman Du Plessis

De cottage was volledig ingericht. Goede bedden. Prachtig uitzicht en heerlijk rustig. De moeite waard voor verblijf.

W.G. Weener

This camp is the flag ship of the park from the ones we visited. The receptionist at the desk was great and very friendly and helpful. The chalet its self was very good and well furnished.

DON FERGUSON

Maintenance is not as it used to be !The restaurant food was not so good !Generally we find that booking is not accurate, ie there is place when one is told that all is booked up .

G White

It was a clean and comfortable camp with great game viewing. the personnel was very friendly and very helpful. Thank you for a great stay and we would definitely visit again.

Thinus de Beer

It was a great experience and hope to visit soon.

Karien Swanepoel

Very good facilities! I think more can be done to get some shade?

Andre Stander

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful in all respects. Services also 100%.

alan pietrucci

We enjoyed our trip through the Kgalagadi. The cottages were more than we expected and very neat. We expect to see more game and were a bit dissapointed in seeing not a wide variety, but the lions we saw made up for that.

GERDINE HAYWARD

Verry Good.

Andre Harmse

Had a meal at the restaurant and had a great meal. The staff were very pleasant. The ambiance was in line with the festive season, with carols playing softly in the back ground. Unfortunately, we decided to cut our visit short by a day, but not due to any fault of Kgalagadi, we were just too tired. Well done Sanparks.

Barry Burger

Very Nice.

Susan Laney

Thank you for the good service and very neat & clean chalet. Everything was in good working condition and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Annemarie Cilliers

Staff helpful and obliging.Ablutions needing attention(run down)

DONALD THORNTON

Again the ablution facilities were not great - better than Mata Mata but could also do with an updrade. Some of the showers were in a very bad state.

Bridget Turner

G White

Not enough shade. Dogs and rooster very noisy. Ablution very clean and staff very friendly

Sonja Hartman

WF OOSTHUIZEN

We enjoyed the stay and we saw many different animals.The roads were in good condition. We lost a tyre on a road on our way to the camp and their workshop helped us with that incident. The staff were all friendly and the bathrooms were clean. We were campers.

NIC PRETORIUS

Good dayPlease have the windows fixed in the ladies bathrooms as it cannot close. I feel that a child of 12 is not an adult and cannot be classified as one, a child of 16 yes but not 12.We had a good time will be back.

Ilse Van Niekerk

We had a great stay. All the reviews on trip adviser about bats freaked me out a bit, but there were no bats to be found. Apparently the roofs were sprayed with pool chloride. We saw a leopard and lion on our 1st day. Chalet is tidy and clean with all the basics that you need. Friendly and professional staff. Shop had all the necessities we forgot to buy in Upington. Sunrise and sunsets were unbelievable. Very quiet, had a good rest.

Zarita King

Stayed in chalet 5 . No bats. LOvely camp. The staff were very friendly.

LINDA STRUBEN

Great accommodation and well serviced. Friendly staff, well run and stocked shop. A great experience.

Dori Moreno

Very pleasant stay.

Sonja Hanekom

We had a wonderful time at Twee Rivieren! Thank you!

MIKE REITZ

We were pleasantly surprised that our chalet had an air-conditioner which was definitely needed during our stay where temperatures reach 40 degrees (36 degrees during the night). We found the accommodation completely adequate and had everything we needed. We also enjoyed our dips in the lovely pool. We stayed at this camp going in for one night and on our return for one night and were thrilled to be able to watch the rugby semi-final in the bush bar. We also went on a sunset game drive which we thoroughly enjoyed and had a meal in the restaurant at this camp which was also excellent. The staff were friendly and informative and all in all, we had a wonderful stay at this camp.

John Gous

Good in general.

DALENE VD WESTHUIZEN

Expected noise till late as it is the main camp, yet was surprised : at 21h00 we could hear nature and enjoy peaceful evenings. Staff at reception and at the garage very helpful and friendly. We are hooked.

NIEKIE COETZEE

No problems.

Piet Ferreira

We enjoyed a really nice stay.

Sonja Hanekom

Very pleasant stay.

Sonja Hanekom

TR is a nice camp, though it can be busy (not surprising given its location as the Park's main entry point). Excellent shop, always beautifully presented and well staffed. Family Chalet was reasonable, with some irritating drainage problems, presumably short-lived.

PAUL MARTIN

Four adults for a sleep-over before we went on in the rest of the Kgalagadi. Facilities well kept and all staff very helpful. Thank you very much.

Bill Skinner

The camp was in a very good and neat state.

Harmse

Excellent camp, wonderful weather, friendly staff, lots of top class game. We will certainly go again.

Amanda Ellis

Hi. We did not get to stay at Twee rivieren because one of our vehicles had an alternator failure causing a flat battery and so we went straight to Upington to get it fixed. Your office kindly advised later that despite the fact we told your campsite staff of the cancellation, there would be no refund, so add R780 to the cost of fixing the vehicle. Sorry but that is not very eco friendly, when people are in trouble you are supposed to help them not kick them !. All of the staff at all of the Kgalagadi camps are really great, pity about head office !

D Shakeshaft

Clean accommodation seems well managed

Accommodation was clean and the camp seemed well managed

Camping sites ok nice and clean, but we suggest that something can be done to the roads, between TweeRivieren and Nossop there are areas where the road is sunken in and very bad and you cannot even see outside the road, a new road is built near TweeRivieren but since we visited three years ago no progress was made, still the same detour!!!!!. Everybody battles to get accomodation in the Kgalagadi, then it cannot be a funds problem, a lot of money is paid to visit the park, but really no maintenance is done. We wanted to go on the Leeudril 4x4--that was closed....we were not allowed on any one of the other 4x4 routes because we did not stay there----no space.!!! We feel that it is a far way to travel with a 4x4 and then you are not allowed to use it. Thanks Ansie Stols

Ansie Stols

As usual the chalets at Twee Rivieren were clean, and good value. The shop was well stocked and the restaurant menu adequate. The only suggestion we would have is that the swimming pool needs attention as the pump was not working and the pool sides and water was filthy. Apart from that no worries see you again next year.

PEIRCE

Hi. I would like to know why there were so many dead Elands? The food at the restaurant was very good. Regards Elisabeth

Elisabeth Brace

Love arriving here and seeing all the red sand dunes on the way in. Have always enjoyed this camp and have had amazing animal sightings.

Linda Struben

Thank you - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

M. Mosca

During our trip to SA I was to two Kruger park.1.Augrabie Falls: Disappointed. 3 out of 6 platforms to view the falls out of order. I made a complaint at rec. and they say, it is written on your entry ticket. Should I read three pages to know this? Why was i not told this before buying the tickets? It will take just a second. Now I feel cheated, therefore I officially request to refund me park entry funds.Twee Rivieren: Since a long time I have not seen such a bad place for a camping. I was there with a normal tent and imagine to nail the pins in concrete similar soil!For both of places all facilities very well equipped, all appliances worked well.Regards,

Janez Zupancic

We loved the Tweerivieren campsite. The facilities were in immaculate condition, the staff were so friendly & efficient. We will definitely be back!

Kirsten Cromhout

1. Again, upgrading of the ablution facilities are recommended. 2. The roads towards Twee Rivieren are of the worst that we've ever driven before. Something really needs to be done about them!

Thilda Kotze

you can defently make the toilets bigger, it was so full wen we were there that we had to puch one another out of the way to get to a shower. The water is leaking past the shouwer doors which makes the floors sopping wet which makes it imposible to get dressed. But past this it was wonderfull

Chantelle Oosthuizen

I wish to congratulate the Kgalagadi team as part of SanParks for a once again exceptional experience in all the camps I stayed over. The camps were 1. twee Rivieren (1) 2. Nossop (1) 3, Gharagap (3) 4. Grootkolk (5) 5. Bitterpan (1) 6. Tent Camp (1) 6. Urikaruus (1). This was my fourth visit to the Kgalagadi. Once again, Thank You all for a once again exceptional experience. kind Regards

JJ VAN ROOYEN

We stayed in chalet 14 and apparently the wooden beams were treated with what I suspect carbolineum. The smell was so strong that we could not sleep and the next morning our eyes were blood red. I complained to the reception staff but they just gave me a we do not care look.The Menu in the restaurant looks very nice but the food is poorly prepared and is served lukewarm.

John van der Plas

The stay at Twee Rivieren were great. Great campsite, etc. However, the roads in the park were not great, I think you allow too many non-4x4 vehicles and that is not very good for the roads. We saw lion, cheetah, etc, and that was fantastic! It is just a pity that we couldn't get a campsite in either Nossob or Mata-Mata although there were more than 7 open campsites. When we asked the admin person in the office, she just said that you keep the sites for people from Botswana and Namibia! What a pity, I would think that we as South Africans will also have a chance of staying there and experience the park at its fullest. However, it was a great stay and we will go back!

Ursula Coetzee

Great stay very friendly staff.

D Vosloo

would have liked to know of the special power plug required.Why can't they (the park)not rent it out with deposit ie R50 and then donate the monies to support a study fund for children.instead of charging R120 for my one day use.

Baie dankie, onvergeetlike toer gewees, kampgeriewe is uitstekend en skoon.

WCJ Burger

We had such a wonderful holiday. The only negative was our evening we had a meal at the restaurant. This was below expectation. The ostrich steak that Mr Burger ordered was inedible, the staff are not trained and rather bored. They are also noisy and the restaurant is large empty and has no atmosphere. We were also disappointed with the takeaway kiosk. The tables are dreadful and chairs standing around, not up to the standard of the rest of the holiday.

Bernie Burger

The stay was really excellent, thanks!

A comfortable and "well earned" Rest Camp. For the traveller this is always a welcome oasis...Thank youNico.

twee rivieren kamp baie skoon en netjiese kamp. die feit dat n fooi van R50pp p.d. gehef word moet BAIE duideliker aan besoekers gestel word as hulle bespreek en nie net in die fynskrif van die besprekingsbevestiging nie.ons beskik oor n wildcard, maar vir ons vriende wat nie een het nie, was dit n groot skok, aangesien ons dit nie raakgesien het op die besprekingsbevestiging nie. ons ondersteun die kampe om daarin te bespreek en maak dus nie van buite akkommodasie gebruik nie, dus voel ek dat dagbesoekers dit kan betaal, maar besoekers wat in die kampe bespreek, moet daarvan vrygestel word!!

Doreen vd Merwe

It was lovely... the Kalahari is so beautiful.Only problem was that the Nossob road was not available, so we had to travel the same route every day.

Although we only had one night at Tweerivieren on our way to Polentswa our stay was very pleasant after a long drive from JHB. The chalets were very clean and had all the necessary cutlery / crockery.We had a meal at the restaurant which was also very good.Service was pleasant and efficient. We will be back for a longer stay.

G J Teasdale

Twee Rivieren is a lovely restcamp to camp in, but the stands need to be marked more clearly. You are never sure where one stand starts and the other ends and if you are really stood on a stand.

Fay van Eeden

We had a wonderful time at Twee Rivieren. The staff were very friendly and camp is well kept. The bathrooms were very clean. Unfortunately the dogs barking at night did spoil our bush experience.

FC VAN EEDEN

This was my first visit and i will go backThe only negative point is the bad roads....i lost a tyre because of the sinkplaat road.

Arno van der Merwe

The ablution facilities at this camp site are satisfactory - enough of everything. We have one negative comment/enquiry though - why do the power boxes at the camp sites have only sockets for the two thronged plugs? Chances are that campers who visit the camp for the first time won't have the specific plugs or adapters with them especially South Africans. We enquired at the shop to buy one but were not prepared to pay the ridiculous price of R140. It is advised that you inform potential visitors when they make their reservations in future.

Wanda Malan

The park was as always nice.The roads on our arrival was terrible with corrugations all the way from Mata to 2 Rivieren: they should do something about this especially during the school holidays: cars surely suffer a lot of rattling.Then at the end of our stay the petrol was finished!!!! We had to use one day to drive out and purchase petrol 60 km from the park: nobody could give us a clear answer as to why it was finished. [this was unleaded] There was LP petrol available but the pump did not workThis is not good management and should be attended to. As a result of this problem we could not go on the 4x4 drive, and management was not interested in allowing us a 15- 20 min late arrival, so they gave us our money backOtherwise, I will enquire about the roads before coming again and also about the availability of fuel. The park requires driving around, you are not supposed to sit in camp all day?

NJ Tiedt

Good camp with reasonable facilities. Enjoyed the park with some good birding and animal experiences. The roads in places could do with more grading.

Dit is 'n lekker kamp. Ons het geen probleme gehad nie. Die mense is vriendelik by ontvangs en die chalets was skoon en netjies. Maak maar reg vir baie warm temperature en sinkplaatpad. Ek bly op 'n plaas daarom pla die pad nie regtig nie. Byt maar op jou tande.

J Coetzer

We spend a wonderful time!

Apart from the very warn and thin dish cloths and tea-towls provided in the chalets and I had to ask them to change the outside table as it was broken the facilities were average; very clean. The shop in Twee Rivieren could do with a bit more food including a bit of a variety of food. The restaurant was good and the service there was good.

David King

Excellent. Still the feeling of being alone in the bush. All the animal were in very good health.Can highly recommend a couple of days stay in the park. 4x4 not a must but preferable.
