Great places to camp in the general area of Kimberley / Bloem?
« on: October 01, 2011, 09:47:37 am »
Howzit dogs. I'm trying to organise a great family get camping together (one lot in Joburg, one in George) and am trying to find a central point to rv and camp. We are all into remote, bush, type camping (with decent ablutions - for the older members :-) ). The more private the better.
I'd love to discover a fantastic new spot. Any advice?
