After much research and excitement we journeyed to Limietberg Nature Reserve after work last weekend. The mountains and surroundings are breathtakingly beautiful which increased my eagerness to arrive and explore. The campsite was clean and tidy. I found 1 tick and fortunately no others. My excitement was shattered when I discovered that there was absolutely NO water pressure AT ALL in the shower/bath/basin the whole weekend - I had to "shower" with a face cloth and a trickle of cold water. The baboons are an absolute hazard - they are brazen and scary. The hiking trail is not clearly marked or maintained which left us scratched and bruised. I will not be returning.

If you are looking for tranquil and quiet campsite avoid Tweede Tol. Recently booked a private campsite for the family, utterly disappointed with the overall state of the facility and the reserve. Upon arrival the gate controller is happy to share everything that is not working, no hot water, no wood, struggling water pressure and casually shares that “you can send an email to head office” like he is regurgitating the same sad news for the 100th time. The campsite was dirty, bins hadn’t been emptied, there was plastic, charcoal and food waste items lying around and we had to resort to asking the staff for a broom and rake to clean the site ourselves before setting up camp. The staff happily standing by watching us clean. The wooden deck area was badly damaged which makes it tricky to place tents without causing damage to your tent. Serious baboon problem because there is no waste management. It took 4 days before any of the dustbins were emptied, the amount of rubbish in and around the camp area is disgusting. Bins were overflowing, the amount of rubbish lying around is simply unacceptable. Low water pressure is an understatement, no water would be more accurate. Trying to use the other ablution facilities to compensate left one cold due to the filthy state they were in. The staff accommodation opposite the private camp site had a fair amount of visitors over the weekend with raucous and lengthy goodbyes, cars hooting as they leave at 19:30 on a Sunday evening. None of the rules on the Cape Nature info sheet are being adhered to let alone enforced by the staff. Music was playing, waste and rubbish seems to be the order of the day, I also seriously question that the picnic area is being limited to the prescribed 120 people per day. The state and site management at Tweede Tol is a far cry from the pristine and tranquil breakaway that they advertise.

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend at Tweede Tol campsite and stayed in a private campsite - we cannot believe how badly run this campsite is. According to the Cape Nature website a maximum of 6 people and two cars is allowed per site – this is certainly not the case. The campsite behind us had at least 5 cars about 12 people staying there in 4 tents. They kept us up on Saturday night with all of their noise – which did not stop all day. There was also music pumping throughout the night and was still playing when we left for our hike the following morning. When we checked in we weren’t asked to pay a conservation fee – we have a Wild Card so this would not have been an issue. I am not sure the conservation fee payment is being enforced. The 10am departure time is certainly not enforced with people staying on their campsites until after 5pm. On Sunday evening it was a lot quieter after everyone had left at around 5h30pm/6pm. On Monday morning while we were packing up the staff were dropped off and created such a noise that my husband had to ask them to keep quiet. Our neighbours, with a baby, were still trying to sleep! This was hardly the relaxing experience we were hoping for. The impression we received was that the staff knew everyone that was staying there and they could do whatever they liked!

We have walked the hiking trail in the reserve in 2016 and again today. It is really SAD how little Cape Nature did or does to do even the basics. I refer to the non existent, faded, unclear tiny little spray painted foot prints that indicate the route. It has been was still today a matter of may be we are on the right track. ALL they need to do is to insure clear markings... the trail is in a beautiful location. Bring at least 1.5liter water per person as it is ling hike to the waterfall, more or less 90 minutes non stop walking. It is fairly easy to walk here and there challenging areas with narrow raised paths. Bring a hat and proper shoes. The hike is mostly in the sun.

Hiking the Kromriver Trail here is magical. You follow the river bank all the way up to a waterfall. From this waterfall you can climb the 10 metre cliffs using the metal chain (not for the faint hearted like me) and once on top another 2 minutes later you come out to a beautiful large fresh water pool with a waterfall that is very high. I have done this hike twice now in the last 2 months and both times snakes have been spotted. R60 permits need to be purchased prior to hiking as it is limited to a certain amount of hikers per day
