Die Houthoop close to Kleinsee
        Very nice self catering place


Brandkaros resort just east of Alexander Bay
      Close to Orange river. Camping and chalets. Camping spot we picked had too many thorns though but for the rest it was nice with this lapa type braai.

Die Mond, Tankwa 
Dankie hje. Ek het wyd en suid gesoek maar kry nerens n email adres vir hulle. As iemand dit dalk het laat weet dan kontak ek hulle


I wish  to un-recommend them as biker friendly

We were there last wekeend (by bakkie). 7 people - 4 vehicles

On arrival were were not welcomed, but greeted with ' Ja, Kan ek julle help'. Honde en bikes work nie toegelaat nie.!. We had no bike. we did have a dog. We were never told that dogs are not welcome.

The farm has 5 dogs that roam the place and their kaka can be seen all over.

The woman is apparently married into the family and throws her weight around. She has a bit of that. People outside comment a lot about her rudeness.


So if anyone plans on visiting them on bikes - call first
They have no website
They have no email
They have no Facebook page where they can (for free) publish their contact info and rules.
They do not provide you with a list of the campsite rules when making a booking

----
That being said, the place is special and a lot of fun, albeit very rustic and the chalets are overpriced comapared to what you can get elsewhere
Camping was cheap. R70 per person

Drinking rum before 10am in the morning makes you a pirate, not an alcoholic.

Brilliant bike friendly place I stayed at last month, just on the Laingsburg side of Seweweekspoort. Porcupine Rest Camp. They rent out tents, stretchers, bedding etc. Have a small bar and restaurant and are super friendly. http://www.porcupinerestcamp.co.za/  Thanks will contact them  :thumleft:

And one of my favorites near Barrydale is Karoo Saloon. http://www.karoosaloon.com/ I have invited them, I will follow up again today, thanks for reminding me  :thumleft: They are on the map now, looks like a cool place with cool people  :thumleft:

You can add Lord Carnarvon Guesthouse in Carnarvon.
They also have a restaurant.
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.
