Nice quiet venue in very picturesque surroundings. Accommodation is comfortable with everything you could want available on site. Great weekend away from the big smoke. Being a bit picky, the accommodation could do with being updated. Putting this aside, this is a great place for a family holiday. Lots of activities to keep the kids busy. Great place for a... More

We loved the camping at Merry Pebbles. The activities for children are endless and they loved playing in the river and the water slides. Clean and neat facilities. Good security. Lots of day trip possibilities. We will return!

Very neat place to stay we had a great time. Very friendly staff, lots of activities for the kids. All maintained really well and very comfortable lodges to stay in. Although it was full it was very quiet. The kids made lots of new friends.

Beautiful location and lovely accommodation. We had a little trouble with the geyser but someone was there to fix it straight away. Rooms were very spacious and clean. i do think the cutlery and pots and pans need a little updating. (like cutting into a steak with a butter knife) but all in all a lovely stay. Thank you.

We stayed in the "Plettenberg", right on the river. Small, yet functional, clean accommodation, at a reasonable rate. The facilities are not new or flashy, which doesn't matter at all, considering how immaculately it is maintained. From accommodation, grounds, kids facilities, swimming pools - to the well-stocked shop and the restaurant, it is clear that attention to guest comfort and... More

Been there before many years ago, always expected to be back, just as good, if not better. Did not use all the facilities as we were only one night. Convenient, open spaces, quiet, large chalets with first classes finishes! Will be back with the family for sure!

The camp sites are all beautifully maintained and the ablution blocks are clean. Camping next to the river is a wonderful and relaxing experience and my husband enjoyed fly fishing in the river. Sitting in the river itself, sipping on a cocktail was the best however. Nature at it's best. The shop is well stocked with everything you might need... More
