    Na ons bespreking is goeie kommunikasie gehandhaaf met ons. Die kort grondpad is geen uitdaging nie en kan met ‘n gewone motor en woonwa gemaklik gebruik word. Met ons aankoms was die kampplek pynlik netjies, skoon, gras netjies, in kort regtig ‘n plesier. Ons is ook verras met ‘n heerlike mandjie met vars melk, eiers, botter en ‘n vars broodjie, baie keurig gedoen. Die staanplekke is al 5 op ‘n veilige hoogte langs die rivier en elke staanplek het genoeg ruimte sodat mens nie die bure hoef te pla nie, alhoewel ons van die ander gawe kamppers ontmoet het. Die private ablusie en groot afdak met opwasplek was goed versorg en baie skoon en selfs versier met groen rangskikkings. Baie dankie vir ‘n wonderlike ervaring – ons sien uit om terug te gaan, net langer die keer.
