Oewerbos River Camp in Vioolsdrift

Oewerbos River Camp is situated on the banks of the meandering Orange River en route to the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. Ideally positioned halfway between Cape Town and Windhoek, you'll find this stunning camp to be the ideal stopover. Oewerbos River Camp offers meals, a self-catering option and has a full bar available to its guests.

At Oewerbos you can just relax, chill at the pool or enjoy the built in Jacuzzi, unwind on the deck directly overlooking the river while sipping on an ice cold beverage or read a book in your hammock. Don't leave before experiencing one of our famous pizzas from the wood-burning oven while you take in the Orange River at sunset. But that's not where the beauty ends - the Richtersveld night sky is ablaze with millions of stars. This is possibly one of the best places in the world for stargazing.

Oewerbos River Camp strives to offer our guests personalized service, offering a range of accommodation options and activities, including boat trips, fresh water angling and excellent birdwatching opportunities. Explore the large variety of plants, strange rock formations and other wildlife the Richtersveld has to offer.

Had a great weekend here in a tent, with air conditioning. Lovely pub with a brilliant wood fire pizza oven, that was delicious. The owners are relaxed and helpful were they can. Area is tranquil with poor cell phone reception, which is neccessary for a proper breakaway. Will definitely be back. We even tackled the river rafting which was a blast as well. Recommend this experience highly, you won't be disappointed

A beautiful stress free six hour drive from Cape Town led to the oasis that is Oewerbos. Possibly the best spot I've been to. Stayed in one of their air conditioned chalets which were super clean and comfortable. The whole camp had an air of calm and friendliness- from the owners to the other guests. Really good food, shaded lawn to nap next to the pool, kids catered for and everyone considerate to each other. No noisy individual parties blasting out music from their sites. Absolute bliss. Took a canoe on the river of course and saw amazing bird wildlife. Highly recommended. Glad I didn't do the Garden route for my holiday.!!!!
