We camped at the Bush camping site. It is rustic and clean with hot water. The camping sites have huge trees for shade. There are a lot of Quiver trees near the camp. The camp manager (Giel) was very friendly. He showed us the fossil trail and Quiver Forrest whilst informing us about the history of the area.
We camped at the bush camp. It is situated amongst the rocks and quiver trees. Each campsite has its own big tree, providing ample shade. There are braaipits provided, take your own wood. Ablutions are basic, with a donkey water heater, but clean and sufficient. Friendly owners!
Great place to spend 1 or 2 nights. We were alone in the campsite and all commodities were goods. The owner is very friendly and the visit of the fossil was a nice activity. Numerous quivertree and dolerite (rock formations) are all around (no real need to go to the nearby parks).
What a lovely, cosy fabulous overnight stop! Attention to detail, relaxed, welcoming and very accommodating hosts. Guided tour is a must and Oom Giel was passionate and entertaining. We enjoyed our time and would recommend Mesosaurus Fossil Camp.
The chalets are rustic and clean with shower and toilet. Outside is a well equipped kitchenette and bbq area. It was very functional for our needs and it was very peaceful here. We did a tour with the owner Giel where he took us to an area where he has found many fossils on the farm, the history of the area is fascinating. He is passionate about his farm and quiver trees and the photo opportunities of the sunset over the dolomite boulders with quiver trees made for interesting photos. Giel can play tunes on the dolomite boulders! He’s a fascinating man full of information! There is a dining area where the other tenants ordered dinner and breakfast before leaving. If fossils fascinate you, then this is the place for more than one night!
