Reviews for Ymansdam Camping & Self-catering Cottage
"Perfect spot to do basic camping in quiet karoo surroundings."
1. Perfect spot to do basic camping in quiet karoo surroundings.
2. No cellphone coverage!
1. Water drips on you when sitting on the loo.
2. The campsite was swept and cleaned, but there were floaters in the loo.
3. Complicated 'donkey' and tap arrangement for anyone to operate who is not technically (plumbing) minded. Some instruction on-site would be good.
4. SMS'd ahead to inquire about a braai grid and was told there was one on site. There wasn't, and had to ride back to farmhouse to fetch one.
5. Although we used an entire bundle of wood to heat the donkey, the water was barely lukewarm.
6. No potable water. A warning about this would be good. We travel on a motorcycle and cannot carry much with us.
