All quiet on the North West­ern front

Go! Camp & Drive - - Reel & Wheel -


The Buffelspoort Dam lies just out­side Mooinooi, right next to the Maan­haar­rand road. The dam lies in front of you as you drive through the gate. The op­po­site bank is roughly half a kilo­me­tre away, and the wa­ters stretches for 3 km to either side with the dam wall at the far left. The camp­site is near the wall and stretches about a kilo­me­tre along the bank. The stands with elec­tric­ity are front left and most of them are on mowed lawn – all have their own braai. Twenty of them are right on the wa­ter and are clearly marked. An­gling from these spots is only al­lowed dur­ing win­ter months but you’re al­lowed to fish year-round from the stands fur­ther down the bank. There are two bath­rooms. One is lo­cated near the cen­tre, be­tween the stands with elec­tric­ity. There’s a scullery area and spa­cious shower cu­bi­cles. On the far side, away from the gate, there is an­other ablu­tion fa­cil­ity for those camp­ing with­out elec­tric­ity on the large lawn area.
