In 2003, news broke of the Spring­boks’ army-style mo­ti­va­tional camp called Kamp Staal­draad (mean­ing camp steel wire). It was quite an em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment for the Boks.The good news is that Kamp Staal­draad in the Swart­berg Moun­tains near Klaarstroom is noth­ing like that 2003 ver­sion. This one has five lux­ury tents with their own ablu­tions, a cen­tral boma and kitchen and very lit­tle cell­phone re­cep­tion (it’s in the mid­dle of nowhere). Thank­fully, there are no naked Boks run­ning about. You can’t reach the camp with a stan­dard sedan or hatch. A ve­hi­cle with higher clear­ance, us­ing the ser­vice road, will get you there though.
