Travellers' Choice
Gariep is the perfect stopover between Gauteng and the Cape, 180 km south of Bloemfontein, just off the N1. Situated on the banks of Gariep Dam, the largest dam in South Africa, and bordering the Gariep Dam Nature Reserve, it straddles the borders of three provinces, namely Free State, Northern Cape and Eastern Cape. The caravan park consists of 106 sites, all with electricity and serviced by two communal ablutions and a laundry. There are also 16 luxury caravan sites each with their own ablution facilities. Accommodation consists of 44 two or three bedroom chalets newly refurbished, and 12 luxury one or two bedroom chalets. Our on-site restaurant, the Quenna Bistro, can seat up to 120 persons, and boasts a ladies bar and outside deck with a splendid view. Activities and facilities include: tennis and a driving range, fishing (own equipment), kiosk and swimming pool.

Very happy with the whole experience from booking & changing the booking date twice due to the unrest in KZN and closure of the N3 delaying our trip, to our accommodation & stay,every thing was great. On both occassions of changing the date I was assisted by Dimpho, who was so efficient & helpfull. The young man whom, to my shame, I don't remember his name checked us in & spent time with us discussing alternate accommodation since we are pensioners, what a lovely experience to still find well trained staff who care about their clients. Well done Forever Resorts.

We had a quick sleepover on the way to and back from Gauteng and we were received by a friendly guy at reception. The chalet was immaculate and we had a very good night's rest. The resort offered so much more than we needed.

I always stay at this resort on my way inland because the service is consistently faultless. Ablutions are always spotless and pristine. Forever Resorts are the best by far in South Africa. I won't stay anywhere else!

A pleasant place. Accommodation is adequate, staff friendly, and processes work. Restaurant is pricey, charging upmarket urban prices for food that has the same name, but is not prepared with the same finesse. One wants to find excuses: the locality is fairly remote, but on a very busy main route nonetheless. Yet, compared to the local alternatives (some clinging desperately to a fourth star, which can only be justified if you believe in magic and miracles), it is reasonable and adequate.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff at reception was very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and neat! We have stayed over at the campsites and the chalets several times during the last 30 years! And we'll definitely go again!
