Next to the Sundays river, on a working citrus farm and only 50km from the Addo Elephant Park. We have 4 cabins and 30 caravan sites with powerpoints available. Lots of fun for the whole family.

We decided as a family that we want to go camping for the holidays, but not by the oceans side. A friend of mine referred me Sitrus Oewer Camp, and we book and the rest was history.

What a pleasant stay, from point of arrival to the last step into the car. I do not know where to start, from the river on our front door, fishing rods next to the braai, swimming in the river, the boats.. and then the play area for the kids. Its just well maintained and oiled machine that they have got running here at Sitrus Oewer Camp.

The kids enjoyed the swimming and the river boats so much, and to experience the safe outdoors was what got them and us going through the day. The ablutions are cleaned daily, and always in clean conditions, with the shower and toilet that you have for yourself, making it a lot easier for the kids and family to run through a quick shower.

We have already made our next booking to go camping this year, and bringing more family members with.

Overall a 10 out of 10 experience for us, and I can recommend it to anyone.

Thank you Anneke for answering all my questions the week leading up to us coming through, kind and friendly from day one.

Sitrus Oewer Camp will become accustomed destination in our family.

What a gem of a place. A must for families to unwind and just just enjoy the simple things in life. Anneke was so accommodating and replied almost instantly to emails. Booking was easy and booking information received detailed but simple. My family of 4 (kids 13 and 10) stayed in Blue Crane cabin. Upon arrival, the cabin was clean and neat. The kitchen kitted out with the necessaries (apart from scissors). The bedroom was just delightful and the bed comfy with fresh linen. Our kids slept on the pull out couch but fear it would be the last time as my eldest is a bit too big too share now with his brother. The bathroom was surprisingly big for the size of cabin and the shower was awesome. We pre-ordered our wood and it was all ready and waiting under the braai. The veranda was ample in size and faced the river. Our kids had a blast on the canoes and jumping platform as well as the swing into the river. It was typically hot for the time of year so having the luxury of aircon in the cabin was priceless. Overall, well priced and comfortable accommodation nestled between beautiful citrus trees and the Sundays River. So close to PE and Uitenhage, a must to visit even for just a weekend. Can't wait for our next visit in March

This is the most beautiful campsite!!! We stayed in Kingfisher cabin with Aircon. Also the amenities are more than any camper
would ever need..
The comfortable beds and luxurious bedding were a pleasant surprise. My boys had tons of fun playing in the river.
I would recommend this camp site to anyone who wants to enjoy spectacular river views a few steps away from citrus orchards.
Thank you to Anneke for making this a memorable camping experience.

As always, we had an amazing time at Sitrusoewer. We've been there twice in 2021 and every time it just feels better than the previous time. Kingfisher is the perfect place to escape for a relaxing time. It feels like home away from home. The cabin is fully equipped with everything you need and very clean indeed. We are already planning a few breakaways to Sitrusoewer this year and can recommend this to anyone.

We had the most amazing weekend. From the turn-off and the clear visible directions to the unit that was clean and well stocked with everything you need. The facilities and bathroom was clean and well kept. We had a 4-year old with us that kept himself busy with the play area. We were all in the water with the lovely weather we had on Saturday. Enjoying ourselves on the canoes and the tubes. All the guest there was also friendly. Can't wait to go back. I want to thank the management for ensuring that you have a gem for us to visit.

What a gem of a place! Hands on management, making sure guests are happy. The facilities are clean and well stocked. The only let down was having to pack up and come back home. We will most definitely be back for another visit.

We had the most awesome stay at Sitrusoewer. Our chalet was clean, neat and had everything we required for our stay. Very safe location and roads were nice and quiet towards town so that i could go for a long run. Great getaway for the family.

Thank you for an amazing 5 days at your River Camp. The facilities were outstanding and our chalet had everything we needed and was very clean. A very relaxing environment and the kids had an amazing time swimming, canoeing and playing up at the kids area with jungle gym and trampoline. I hardly saw my 4 year old the whole week except at feeding time. It was such a pleasant surprise when we arrived and well worth the trip.

We heard about Sitrusoewer from friends and then we googled it and visited the camp. Upon entering the premises we enjoyed the look, the vibe, the neatness etc. We decided to book for January and we were welcomed immediately. We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The neatness, hospitality, the facilities empressed us. At night the gates were closed so we felt safe. The local police took a drive through late afternoon which was also comforting. The owners are on site everyday and very friendly and accommodating. We can recommend this to anyone.
