Thornycroft Camp

C70 Thornycroft Road


The camp is built in the middle of nature, away from any noise and pollution. The four dorms sleep 20 guests each on bunk beds. As it is a "budget facility", it is run on a strict "bring your own bedding, towels etc" basis. The main feature is the huge braai grill with seating all around. There is a hall with seating for 80 guests, ample ablutions, and a kitchen space for preparing salads etc and doing dishes. The two dams next to the dorms are perfect for swimming and fishing, and the surrounds are great for long walks, soccer, touch rugby etc.
