I had no idea how popular the Brits area is for caravanners and campers until I visited the area. Bosveld Oase is a mere 15 minutes’ drive from the town of Brits, and is the new kid on the block, but owners Eugene and Elna Muller haven’t let the grass grow under their feet.
On my visit, I watched while an extension to the campsite − roughly two rugby fields in size of neat Kikuyu grass sods − were laid out in one day. No expense has been spared at Bosveld Oase, the resort is really 5-star. There are 110 spacious and grassed stands for caravans and camping, as well as chalets and a complex consisting of seven ensuite rooms. The complex even has its own small, heated, indoor swimming pool.
The Mullers have installed one of the longest and widest waterslides in the country: 10 metres high by a hundred metres long. And, just for good measure, a twin race water slide. Bosveld Oase has its own restaurant and a small shop, and they also do simple but tasty take aways.
This is a real family resort with a sprinkler park, an open heated pool, a really large under-roof heated pool, a 9-hole mini golf course and a lekker pub with a massive screen for sport.
