Caravan Park Review: Klipdraai Caravan Park, Meyerton

Wow! That was my first reaction. I was driving down the long driveway to the Klipdraai Caravan Park which is situated on the willow-poplar-and mulberry-fringed banks of the Klip River.

The park is set on a long lazy curve of the river and can be found in Rothdene, a small town near Meyerton in the Witwatersrand. The park is 50 kilometres from central Johannesburg − no more thana 40-minute drive. You feel welcome from the moment you check in at the gate with Oom Gert, who wears a big leather hat.

Without a doubt, this caravan park is one of the neatest I have come across while working for Caravan & Outdoor Life.

It’s an exceptionally large park, with 340 campsites. There are six large, first class ablution blocks servicing the park: so, no matter where you park, there’s a bathroom close at hand. I liked that.

The first night, as I sat watching the sunset over the river, a whole lot of springbok and bontebok appeared on the grass literally 20 metres away. Once I’d looked my fill, I took a walk along the shady banks of the Klip River. While standing under a gnarly old willow, massive catfish swirling around in the eddy of the thickest branch dipping into the water.

No wonder Klipdraai draws a lot of fishing folk for the barbel and yellows to be caught in the river. whose branches were dipping into the water, I realised that there were three massive catfish swirling around in the eddy of the thickest branch dipping into the water.
