About Zonnenstrahl Camping Ground

Situated on the outskirts of Nieu-Bethesda, in lush grounds with peaceful willow trees, the Zonnenstrahl Caravan Park is a fantastic choice if you are looking for affordable camping accommodation, in a quiet and relaxing environment.

Comprising eight sites, each camp site has access to power points, water points and braai facilities. The communal ablutions have two separate toilets and two showers.

The town of Nieu-Bethesda has been painted by tragedy, fertility and religion. More importantly it has a great sense of community and many historical sites. The famous Owl house is the town’s main attraction, and an important stop. Learn the sad, yet inspirational story of Helen Martins and experience the legacy she has left behind.

Like all country towns, the town of Nieu-Bethesda has a lovely church, a police station, a small general dealer, craft shops, coffee shops, and the Sneeuberg Brewery and the Fossil Centre.

          The peaceful environment of the camping grounds. we were the only people there this time. I have been going to the camping grounds for the past 5+ years. I have watched over these years how the grounds have improved, building of the laundry and dish washing area, veranda in front of the ablutions, It is a place to regenerate the soul and have always enjoyed my stay there due to the quietness of the place, even when it has been full.Things to improve - Locks on ALL bathroom and toilet doors that work. Middle bathroom a mirror for shaving. Staff are friendly and most helpful.

          Booked this for our group of eight with no idea of what to expect.

          We were lucky to have dry ground and space for both families camping together. The location was quite adequate from which to visit the village and the brewery close by was splendid. This offered value for money. Ablutions were pretty decent, but it would have been ideal to have another full bathroom.

          We found the campsite to be pleasant and green, and the manageress very friendly. The only problem was a shower where the hot water system did not work.
