Net omdat ons 'n tekort gehad het.

Ons het onlangs 'n ongelooflike ervaring gehad by Syringa Sands Rest Camp en ek kan dit met 'n geruste hart aanbeveel aan enige persoon wat op soek is na 'n vreedsame en rustige wegbreek. Die gasheer, Alex, was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam, en ons het dadelik tuis gevoel. Haar gasvryheid het die hele ervaring baie aangenaam en maklik gemaak. Die pragtige omgewing en natuurskoon van Syringa Sands het my asem weggeslaan. Die uitsig was asemrowend. Ons kon die vrede en stilte geniet terwyl ons braai, swem en ontspan. Ek kan met sekerheid sê dat ek beslis weer hierheen sal kom. Syringa Sands Rest Camp het my verwagtinge oortref en ek kan nie wag om weer hier te wees nie. Ek beveel dit sterk aan aan enigeen wat 'n rustige en vriendelike bestemming soek. Dankie Alex, sien weer.

Just because we had a shortage.

We recently had an amazing experience at Syringa Sands Rest Camp and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and tranquil getaway. The host, Alex, was very friendly and helpful, and we immediately felt at home. Her hospitality made the whole experience very pleasant and easy. The beautiful surroundings and scenery of Syringa Sands took my breath away. The view was breathtaking. We could enjoy the peace and quiet while barbecuing, swimming and relaxing. I can say with certainty that I will definitely come here again. Syringa Sands Rest Camp exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to be here again. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and friendly destination. Thanks Alex, see you again.

Dit was 'n wonderlike naweek.

Ons het die rustigheid vreeslik geniet en het die alleenheid en stilte was besonders. Die omgewing met die diere en die dam en die voëls is iets besonders.

It was a wonderful weekend.

We really enjoyed the tranquility and the solitude and silence was special. The environment with the animals and the pond and the birds is something special.

Ontspan in die natuur!

Ons het 'n heerlike naweek by Syringa Sands Rest Camp deurgebring. Het baie gestap. Sabels, elande, koedoes, rooihartbeeste, rooibokke, bastergemsbokke, njalas en kameelperde gesien. Ook 57 verskillende voëlspesies wat die witkruisarend en die bruinarend insluit. Die Rest Camp is goed toegerus. Ablusiegebou voldoende en warm stort heerlik. Nie luuks nie. Lekker gewees om eie beddegoed saam te neem. Sal weer gaan!

Relax in nature!

We spent a lovely weekend at Syringa Sands Rest Camp. Walked a lot. Saw sables, moose, kudus, red hearted cattle, impala, hybrid chamois, nyala and giraffes. Also 57 different bird species including the white-crested eagle and the brown eagle. The Rest Camp is well equipped. Ablution building sufficient and hot shower delicious. Not luxurious. It was nice to take your own bedding with you. Will go again!

Stilte en vrede.

Die grondpad was regtig sleg as gevolg van die reën, maar dit is die moeite werd om dit te trotseer. Die kampterrein is netjies en skoon, die sonkragligte op stoep en kombuis was effektief. Onthou flitse, die ablusie het nie ligte nie, maar wel warm water. Die plante veroorsaak dat die water bruin is, maar heeltemal drinkbaar. Pak dus gerus jou eie drinkwater in.

Silence and peace.

The dirt road was really bad because of the rain, but it's worth braving it. The campsite is neat and clean, the solar lights on the porch and kitchen were effective. Remember flashlights, the ablution does not have lights, but does have hot water. The plants cause the water to be brown, but completely drinkable. So feel free to pack your own drinking water.

Thank you for your review Janet. We do hope to see you and the family again this year. Small update, solar lighting was installed in the ablutions as well, still a good idea to bring torches just in case.

Wonderlik gekuier by Syringa Sands.

Die eienaars, Sean en Alex, het die kampplek so ingerig dat daar geensins iets agtergelaat is om te verseker dat dit so gemaklik as moontlik is wanneer jy daar bly nie, en sou jy aan iets dink wat jy dalk sou nodig hê, is dit daar. Julle het vir seker aan alles gedink, ons sal vir seker weer terugkom vir 'n langer tyd. Die natuur word mooi na gekyk en grootste pluspunt is dat daar geen selfoonontvangs is nie, wat 'n plesier. Sean en Alex, baie dankie vir die wonderlike plek wat julle beskikbaar stel om te ontspan en weg te kom van die alledaagse lewe. Baie dankie!

Had a great time at Syringa Sands.

The owners, Sean and Alex, have designed the campsite in such a way that nothing has been left out to ensure that it is as comfortable as possible when you stay there, and should you think of anything you might need, it is there . You have thought of everything for sure, we will for sure come back again for a longer time. The nature is well looked after and the biggest plus is that there is no mobile phone reception, what a pleasure. Sean and Alex, thank you so much for the wonderful place you provide to relax and get away from everyday life. Thank you very much!

Wonderlik om in die natuur te kamp met net stilte orals en wild wat stapafstand weg is. Die geriewe is skoon, netjies en vriendelike bystand is naby. Word baie sterk aanbeveel!

Ongelooflike bestemming

Dit is n ongelooflike boskmap met niks. Maar dis die niks wat so lekker is. Groot lapa vir skadu in die hitte van die dag. Skoon ablusie. Maar die uitsigte en die absolute stilte is die rede hoekom ons alweer bespreek het.

Incredible destination

This is an amazing forest folder with nothing. But it's the nothing that's so nice. Large lapa for shade in the heat of the day. Clean ablution. But the views and the absolute silence are the reason why we booked again.

Juweel van 'n plekkie in die middel van die bos en definitief waarde vir geld.

Die plek is asemrowend. Van bosse, wilde diere en berge tot water en visse en die melkweg. Dis definitief die ideale wegbreek van die stad se lawaai en gejaag waar mens weer rus vir jou siel kry.

Gem of a place in the middle of the woods and definitely value for money.

The place is breathtaking. From forests, wild animals and mountains to water and fish and the milky way. It's definitely the ideal break away from the city's noise and hustle and bustle where you find rest for your soul.

Dit was 'n heerlike, rustige wegbreek.

As jy rus en stilte nodig het, is hierdie net die regte plek. Sean het uit sy pad gegaan om dit vir ons so lekker as moonlik te maak en klein dingetjies gedoen waarvoor ons nie eers gevra het nie, soos om spesiaal 'n fietsie vir my dogtertjie te bring sodat sy kon rondry, gasbottels met kookplaat en gaslig. Hy het baie moeite gedoen om ons op 'n heerlike avontuur-volle wildrit te neem. Sal volgende keer vir seker langer bly.

This review is being shown in its original language.

It was a lovely, peaceful getaway.

If you need peace and quiet, this is just the right place. Sean went out of his way to make it as pleasant as possible for us and did little things that we didn't even ask for, such as specially bringing a bike for my little girl to ride around, gas bottles with hob and gas light. He went to great lengths to take us on a delightful adventure-filled game drive. Will stay longer next time for sure.

Dit was 'n heerlike wegbreeknaweek weg van die stad se lawaai.

Ons het heerlik gebly. Die ablusiegeriewe was uitstekend en skoon en die lapa het definitief dinge vergemaklik. Die tafels en stoele maak dit ekstra gerieflik en die braai-area was ook netjies. Klaargekapte hout sal dinge net vergemaklik. Veral as daar nie plek in die motor is vir hout saamry nie en hout nie naby beskikbaar is nie.

Nice weekend breakaway from the city noise.

Enjoyed the stay. Ablution facilities excellent and clean, and lapa definitely made things easier. Tables and chairs made it extra convenient and the braai area was neat. Can suggest wood that's already chopped, especially since there was no space left in the car to transport wood and there was no wood available nearby.
