#14 of 38 in Swellendam
Kam’Bati is situated on an Overberg farm called Jubileeskraal, that is approximately 20km west of Swellendam. The Sonderendriver and Breede River meets on the property that is owned and managed by the Badenhorst Family. Jubileeskraal is a working farm where production of Barley, Weat, Canola and Corn takes place. Kam’Bati River Resort offers Grassed Campsites with electricity and clean ablutions, Self-Catering Cabins and luxury Africamp Tents. The resort is very safe, clean and child friendly. The perfect place to spend your next holiday or breakaway weekend! The Self-Catering Cabins cater for couples in our romantic 2 sleeper units, but also for families in our 4 sleeper 2 bedroom units. The cabins are situated on the edge of a beautiful dam which is a stone throw to the majestic breede river. AfriCamps Forest opened it’s doors in August 2016. Five luxury Glamping tents have been built in a beautiful and quiet patch of forest close to the river.

Great family camping resort and cabins with wonderful extras to enjoy. Different sizes of pools for the kids and a River to enjoy as well. Shop on site and get variety available. Walks and off road bicycle trails available as well. Great place if you enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.

* No enforcement of the rules... Had to camp through a long weekend with noise until after 1 in the morning. We complained many times but the next night the noise just continues and management does not answer the telephones * Millions of flies. * Not a pleasant experience!!

We rented one of the self catering cabins while friends stayed in the luxury tents. We were disappointed when we compared our cabin to their tent, and saw they had much better amenities for a lesser price. Their kitchen was better equipped, the bathroom was significantly bigger, they had air conditioning, a built in braai, a larger deck, and a hot tub. We had a hot plate with only one burner, limited kitchen supplies, no air conditioning or hot tub. But we paid more for the cabin? Our checkin was delayed for almost 2 house and there was also an issue with house flies When I approached management to see if we could be compensated for our negative experience, I was told "The AfriCamps Luxury Tents & Cabins are two different accommodations types [...] Our Cabin rates have a standard rate throughout the year, were AfriCamps has their seasonal rates which was most likely cheaper than the Self-Caterings Cabins at the time." Moral of the story... the cabins are over priced. Don't book with OENA Eacapes. .

Campsite is great with fabulous lawns to camp on, lots of stuff to do like put-put, swimming, water activities on the river. Ablution not in great condition and was not cleaner often, specially sinne campsite was quite full. Also not a fan of the unisex facility. And the million of flies was driving us mad!!! Don't think I will want to camp there again.

We are a group of 29 people that paid a 50% deposit to camp in April. Due to COVID-19, we could not camp, and immediately asked for the long weekend of 24 to 28 September, with specific camp sites. Kambati confirmed in April that this will be OK. Early June I wanted to add families to the group, to be told that the weekend of 24 Sept is no longer available, they have a private function. I then asked for a refund. They then offered the worst camp site for the weekend of 24 September, which as not according to the original booking or experience sold. They are still refusing to refund our deposit. We are extremely disappointed, and have reported them to the Consumer Tribunal.
