I recently visited the reserve for a conference. It is literally in the middle of nowhere, but what a wonderful place it turned out to be. I stayed in communal accommodation which was spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. However, I would rather camp or book a chalet if I was to visit again on holiday. The campsites look lovely and...

I visited and camped with 2 friends. Incredible starry skies, cries of the jackal, and amazing sand dunes. The camp sites were well spaced out so that you don't really see your neighbours. Nice conference venue for up to 50 people. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Long journey to get there, along bumpy dirt roads, but it's worth it.

we are frequent visitors to the Witsand reserve. The detour to the location is worth it. This year we got a unmaintained, dirty Chalet. The backyard is full with broken glass, so avoid going barefooted. Tell the cildren to wear shoes!!! The comments to the (new) receiption girls were worthless. They only suggested, to write our complaints into the guest...

The chalets seem to have seen better days, but this place is awesome: the reserve has a lot of interesting wildlife and the different soils assures a great diversity of plant ecosystems. Interesting to visit hiking. On the negative sides, the shop is almost empty: no bread, no rice, no meat... and some activities, like sandboarding, could be organised with...

Spacious, well equipped and laid out stone house. The bathroom setup is unique with a separate bath room, separate area (own door) big shower with ample space. Soft touches like small loose carpets at each side of the bed. There is a big, raised fire pit out front and a small raised water whole where springbuck and duiker leisurely drank....

Witsand Nature Reserve should be more visible to those who enjoy wide open expanses with high quality accommodation. The bird hide is a very good birding site and is frequented by antelope too. The bungalow sleeps two in very warm beds and the kitchen and bathrooms were clean and the water very hot! Two ply toilet paper is dunes are...

Stayed in the chalets, which are private, spacious, well equipped and have a great bush feel - all build in a flat U-shape around a fantastic braai area, which includes a small watering hole that brings the wild life right into your backyard. The thatched rooms all open onto an open stoep, which makes them a bit cold in winter,...

Always wonderful...always a treat. The chalets are really nice...with the best outside braai areas one can hope for. This place is a really special place for family getaways and bonding. The kids love the sand boarding on the dunes..and so did we. The chalets are positioned such as to allow sufficient privacy..but also in a way that allow game to...
