The Tweespruit bushcamp was launched in early Spring 2009. It has 4×4 or hiking, mountain bike or horseback access (from the main gateway lodge where vehicles can be safely left), with 4 vehicle sites next to the Jordan river, and a capacity of 20 people using own tents. It has a covered open plan boma with sink, tables, stone benches, overlooking campsite with great view of the mountains, making the bushcamp usable in all weather conditions. Also rustic gents and ladies ablutions with flush water and hot showers.
The camp is a good base for hiking or mountain biking up into the catchment where high altitude wetlands are found, and for visiting the interesting and ancient volcanic basalt rock formations.
There is both lodge and camping accommodation to suite your budget and preferences.
