Firstly I want to say that you have really nice people working at the reception. Especially the young lady with the very pink lips at the hotels reception. What a breath of fresh air, she is so friendly and help full. You should really do something about the monkeys they are getting to be a pest, and very dangerous, there... More

My wife and I decided we needed to recharge our batteries and booked a 7 day breakaway at Richards Bay Caravan Park. Arriving there, the gate guard was a friendly bundle of energy and reception effective, fast and friendly. We chose our campsite at our leisure and were relaxing in no time.

The park is beautiful, with big grassed sites and plenty of trees. Frontline staff are friendly and helpful, and ablution blocks are clean but there was a problem with hot water in the ladies ablutions. There's a lovely play area, with swimming pool, trampoline and swings etc. A small shop and bottle store is also on site for your very... More

A previous management team decided to make certain facilities available to outsiders in order to generate some cash. Unfortunately the outsiders also generated considerable noise. That management team has been disposed of and sanity has returned. This is once again my favourite caravan park,by a large margin.The 2-week pensioner rate of R1000 all-in is pretty spectacular value, in my opinion.... More

We were staying in Richardsbay caravan park over DEC 2014.

We spent a couple nights camping at Richard's Bay Caravan Park. It cost 110 Rand per person per night and there was a 100 Rand deposit (which you get back upon departure) if you wanted the beach access key. The campsites had electricity and the ablutions were clean. The washing area was great, and there was direct access to the... More

If you're a pensioner and you have 2 weeks or more to spare than this is the place to spend them. This park is the best value for money that I have yet found. Privately owned and meticulously maintained, simple but spotless ablutions, excellent security and a wonderful in-the-bush layout. Quite unexpected when you see the horrible pallisade of stinking...

“The neighbouring lodge has built a row of rooms overlooking the lower 'G' section of the camp. These rooms attract a lot of loud-mouths and drunks. One shrieking female was berating her mate until 3am, and I was quite ready to go up there and bury the hatchet - in her skull. Consider this if you book for section 'G'.”
