We joined the in-laws for some much needed rest time and were blown away by what we found. Our campsite was just above the banks of a beautiful stream and just a short walk to get to the hiking trails. The views we got from our bedroom window every morning were spectacular. Staff are really friendly and look after the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a Longdavel of the Glen Reenen Rest Camp. The room was clean, bathroom with shower spacious. DSTV was convenient for viewing in the evening. Negatives:More kitchen utensils could be supplied. Servicing of the unit is poor, the cleaner only pitched up at 12h40, while we had our lunch. Why cant she come in the... More

I recently stayed at the Glen Reenen Rest Camp with the plan to do some bird photography. The Restcamp is surrounded by majestic mountains and the afternoon sun makes for spectacular scenery. The Longdawel I stayed in was well equipped and clean. Beds were comfortable and I enjoyed the stay. The unit is true self catering with stove, microwave, fridge,... More

The campsite at Glen Reenen is one of our favorites in South Africa. Situated under large shade trees on the banks of the Klerk river, and under the shadow of mushroom rock, an awe inspiring red sandstone edifice, the setting is unparalleled. Sites are large, flat and grassy, but best of all is the new ablution blocks. They are clean,... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the self catering part. The family cottage was oke, it might have been a bit to big for just the 2 of us. The main things were available, fridge, tv, kitchensupply, braai although it would have been nice to see some detergent. As the store only had larger bottles for a month. And there... More

Camping at Glen Reenen base camp was an experience I will not soon forget. From struggling to get the tent to stay up in the wind, to the buffet dinner at the hotel, to walking the Wodehouse trail. Wow! Wow! Wow! The cell signal was even better than at home (just so you know)! The highlight was definitely standing at... More

Excelent environment and view from the venue. Nice spread well laid out and quality of food is excellent. Service was very good and priced right Just not possible to taste and test every piece of food on the spread Over the past few years we had lunch, supper and breakfast at the hotel and always experiance excelent food and service

The surroundings are beautiful and many of the most popular walks start right across the road. The rondawels are compact but well-apportioned and well-maintained. Fridge, toaster, kettle, full stove, with decent cutlery and crockery. No baths, only shower. The braai area adjacent each rondawel is not great - is surrounded by a high screen - which makes it feel quite... More

The best thing about this camp (the rest of it is not bad at all, by the way) is its wonderful location, right in the middle of the park. Consequently, it's the starting point for great, short or longer, hikes in the beautiful sandstone mountains. Fabulous in early mornings and late afternoons. Watch out for the babboons though, they're not... More
