Overview
Op-die-Plaas Kamp is situated on a beautiful working farm named Sandrivier, surrounded by the Klein Swartberg Mountain on one side and the Elandsberg on the other. Due to the altitude, summer months are not that hot, however winter can be very cold. Our farm is located 8 km from the famous Seweweekspoort, allowing an amazing drive through unspoilt nature and over more than 20 river crossings on a well-maintained gravel road.There is no electricity in the campsite, and warm water is with gas geysers. Camp under the blue gum trees or find a spot on the grass at the dam. Remember to bring your fishing gear, as we allow catch and release fishing. Gamkapoort Dam is only 32 km away and is a trip worth making. Activities on our farm include milking the cows, driving with the farmer to check on the sheep and cattle in the field, or swimming in the farm dam to pass the time. We have several routes to explore by foot or mountain bike, as well as a 4x4 route for the more adventurous. The surrounding towns are Ladismith, Calitzdorp and Laingsburg, where you can experience the rich tourism culture, ostriches, wine, cheese-making, and even a flood route.

"A truly awesome place to go visit! The owners were so friendly to us and made us feel very welcome. They helped us with a broken piece of equipment and even let us watch a rugby game at their house. There's plenty to do in the way of driving further into the mountains or hiking. The actual campsite is really beautiful and the facilities are top class too."
"Lovely Spot!"

"We found the camp site on this farm to be lovely, quiet and peaceful. The ablutions are clean and there is plenty of hot water. The drive from Laingsburg through the Klein Swartberg Pass is not to be missed!"
"Loved the place, critical of the directions"

"OP die Plaas Camp was a wonderful venue. The first night we had the whole camp to ourselves. The owner even helped us pitch our tent. The owners also went out of their way to solve an ant problem around our tent.However, what WAS problematical was the very poor directions to the camp site given by SafariNow. Firstly they only gave directions from George - what about visitors going from the opposite direction from Cape Town? Secondly, in the directions not once was the name of any town mentioned (besides their starting point of George), just distances and names of roads (the latter meaningless if you did not know which town they were referring to) - so it made it very difficult to reverse directions if coming from the opposite direction, and we had no measurable distances to work with. Thirdly the final direction given was to turn right into the R323. The problem was that there was no R323 sign at the Seweweekspoort Road, which, after going backwards and forwards and even asking at the police station, we discovered was the R323. How about TELLING clients that you turn into the Seweweekspoort Road and travel ALL THE WAY through the poort to the other side where you see a sign to the farm. As a result of the bad directions given by SafariNow we arrived very late - which made the kindness of the farmer all the more welcome when he helped pitch the tent.P. Beeton"
"Lovely private campsite with natural feel"

"We loved our 2-night stay at Op-die-Plaas Kamp! The owners of the farm have designated one part of it for camping, which is right next to a little lake with many local birds. Clean and nicely built ablution blocks with hot water (when the gas works properly).Friendly and helpful couple who offers to charge phones and has ice packs and wood ready if needed.We did have some difficulty finding the place as there are no signs on the mountain pass road for "Op-die-Plaas". You need to turn it at "Zandvliet". There are also no signs on the farm for the campsite, after calling and asking, we eventually found our way. If you are looking for a quiet, serene campsite in the Seweweekspoort area and are happy to stick to the basics (no electricity, no swimming area etc.), this is a lovely place to stay!"

"Die gasvryheid van Frits en Ronel is ongelooflik. Die privaatheid, uitsig is net onbeskryflik. Vir enige iemand wat hou van kamp, is dit die plek."
