I personally love this campsite. It is half an hour away from Pretoria, and about an hour from Joburg, but you are in the middle of nature. I saw Otters in the river next to my stand, 6 species of Kingfisher, African Finfoot, Elephants, multiple species of antelope etc. The camp has everything that you need, power, braai grids, proper toilets and showers, swimming pool. I could use the owners fridge for a few days to store my food as well. I personally don't understand the negative comments on this page. They are probably written by city people who get scared when they see a tiny insect and who leave their tent open the whole day and then complain about the monkeys. If you like a bit of quietness and nature, I can recommend everybody to come here!

We arrived after sunset and were welcomed by Danian that really went the extra mile to show the area to us. He gave as an option of stands although I had a booking for Stand 7 he allowed us on a stand we liked more. We had a waterfront stand and LOVED it. All campsites are of good size and have electricity and water. Camp VERY clean and we found the ablutions to be adequate and clean. Hot water always. Izak kept our dustbin empty and he also is superb with any little task that is necessary to upkeep the property. In conclusion, I will definitely book there again .......

Stayed there for a long weekend, and a found it disappointing. The bathrooms were never serviced, bins never emptied, braais never cleaned. In fact, braai was dirty from the previous visitors when we arrived.

Hi Roelof We can’t find your booking with us on the long weekend. Maybe you are confusing us with other De Rust resorts at Rust De Winter or Hartebeespoort. We are inside Dinokeng Game Reserve north of Pretoria. Please contact us should you have any questions

We traveled from Jhb to Kruger stopping over here. Did not expect a wildlife campsite so close to Jhb. We saw many animals driving just from the gate to the park. The owners are very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us even when we arrived late.The campsite and ablutions are very neat and clean. We stayed another day to do the self drive. We had an awsome ime and will be back John and Hilda
