This review is for the Andersson Campsite. We stayed there for one night in April. There had been heavy downpours on the day before our arrival. The road to the reception was in a bad condition. We asked at reception if the road will get any worse and they said no it wouldn't. However it got so bad we were scared to seriously damage the 4x4. The weather improved while we were there but no effort was made to fill in the worst potholes. The campsite itself is in a beautiful location. Unfortunately the firewood that was provided was soaked and the pool was to dirty to swim in. We tried walking the path to the Wilderness Lodge but had to stop because it was completely overgrown & eventually a rock blocked our path. We ended up going back & taking the main road. However during the 15min on the path we saw more animals than the rest of our stay. When we tried to explain at reception that the path was no longer walkable this was mostly ignored. In general staff were friendly but not very informed or organised. We were sent to three different places to get meat for a braai but in the end had to give up. Seeing that the meat was advertised on the website we hadn't bought any on the way. We took the tour onto the plateau because you can only get there with a guide.
The tour was informative, the view from the plateau is beautiful and the guides were very friendly. Apart
from some dassies we didn't see any animals. Which seems to be standard on the plateau as the guide confirmed he hardly ever sees any.
