Sitrusoewer River Camp is situated on the scenic banks of the Sundays River, only 50km from the Addo Elephant National Park and surrounded by citrus orchards making it an ideal getaway for the whole family.
We offer four self-catering cabins, each sleeping a family of four. All cabins have roof fans, as well as heaters for the cold nights. Blue Crane, Fish Eagle and Kingfhisher have aircons now! There are no stoves in the cabins, however, there is a two plate stove in the communal kitchen for cabin guests. We suggest you bring your own pots and pans.
Cabins are finished with reeds for a rustic feel and are equipped with a kettle, fridge, microwave, electric frying pan (in all except Kingfisher), toaster, casserole, braai equipment, crockery and cutlery. We provide bedding for three of the cabins, but for Kiepersol, we only provide pillows and duvet inners. Guests must please bring their own towels. We supply enough toilet paper and shower soap for 2 days as well as dishwashing liquid and dish towels for all cabins. No TV’s in cabins, but don’t fret – there is one in the communal lapa. You can arrange to have it unlocked, but please bring your own decoder and smartcard.

Fish Eagle (with aircon) newly renovated: is now the only cabin suitable for a family of 5 (there will be extra costs for more than 3 adults), with a large roofed patio and braai. It now has a separate bedroom with queen size bed, wardrobe and dressing table as well as a single bed and in the original room, another 2 single beds.

Kingfisher, (with aircon) newly renovated: now with separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed. There is also a bunk bed (not suitable for 2 adults) in the original room which sleeps 2 children, so the cabin comfortably sleeps a family of four. The renovations include a bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin. The exterior was also upgraded to a private deck on the water with an open braai and sink for dishes.

Due to the proximity to the water, this cabin is not recommended for families with small children
