GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR INNER SELF
There is something about camping that brings us automatically closer to nature without, and for some our nature within. Perhaps it’s the derth of cement or tiles underfoot, and the tendency to go barefoot. Or simply that every gust of wind, intense ray of sunshine or drop of rain against the cheek is that much more accessible.

CAMPING BY THE DAM
Between the folding Karkloof hills, just 24km from Pietermaritzburg, lies one of KwaZulu-Natal’s largest dams. On its shores you’ll find the ideal family resort – welcome to the Albert Falls Dam and Game Reserve.
You’ll reach the reserve along the Albert Falls Amble in Greytown Road, ready to relax in its compact 3 000ha. You’ll be game viewing from the moment you arrive, often spotting buck and zebra grazing on the banks of the dam. Just a few steps from the chalets, you’ll find somewhere else to entertain energetic children – the swimming-pool and children’s playground.
Fountain Hall Guest Farm
This is our kind of campsite. There are only two of them, which means peace, quiet and space uninvaded.
The guest farm is a working dairy farm in the Midlands, just 7 kilometres from Mooi River. It lies in the foothills of the Kamberg, so in winter, if you’re prepared to brave it, you just may experience snow.
The farm also offers a couple of self-catering cottage options but the camp site is right on the Mearns Dam, with an ablution block and kitchen facilities, as well as electricity in the ablution area.
