De Drinken is a campsite located on the Berg River near Moorreesburg, in the heart of the Swartland. It is conveniently close to Cape Town (about 1.5 hour drive). The camp site is situated on a working farm, called Drie Heuwels Farm. The farm, Drie Heuwels, is situated next to the Berg River, 23 km from the nearest town of Moorreesburg and 100 km from Cape Town on the N7-route towards Namibia.

De Drinken is ideal for the city dweller who wants to relax, swim, hike, fish (carb, barber and many other fresh water fish), take a canoe ride or do some mountain biking on the farm. Enjoy the tranquility, listen to the sound of the Fish Eagles and enjoy some birdwatching. Rent one or more of our fully equipped tents or bring your own tent and camping gear. There is only one campsite, which is very big and can comfortably accommodate 4 trailers. There is a covered lapa area, with a kitchen work table, tap and a large braai.
