About Boontjies Rivier Campsite
Boontjies Rivier Farm is a working citrus farm and is situated near the Citrusdal village. The campsite is situated next to a mountain stream, with a section under a big oak tree. Flush toilets, hot showers and two power points are also provided.
The campsite is situated between orange orchards on an orange farm, in a small valley that is very secluded. The campsite has one ablution facility and is ideal for a group that would like to be completely private.
Please bring your own mountain bikes, as the Citrusdal village route runs close to the campsite, which is 3 km from Citrusdal. Alternatively, swimming can be done in the cement dam or the river.
The Citrusdal village is situated 175 km from Cape Town, in the famous Cederberg Wilderness area. The Oliphants River flows through the valley all year round and the area produces a variety of citrus fruits, soft fruits, Rooibos tea, wine and the medicinal herb, Buchu.
With only an hour's drive from the West Coast and an hour's drive from the northern part of the Cederberg Wilderness area with its world-famous rock climbing spots, it is the perfect spot to explore, with six amazing scenic mountain routes to choose from.
