Imhoff Park, Kommetjie

Mountain View

Kom­metjie (mean­ing “Lit­tle Basin”) is one of those small towns that feels like it is per­ma­nently on hol­i­day. Every­thing there is very laid back and relaxed and I can­not imag­ine that this tiny enclave could ever feel busy, not even in peak season.

This prob­a­bly why there are three or four camp­sites in close prox­im­ity to each other, and Imoff is one of them.

Imhoff camp­grounds is not sit­u­ated right on the beach, so unfor­tu­nately you dont have any great views, but there is also a huge advan­tage to this. This camp­grounds has hun­dreds of well estab­lished trees, which means you are fairly well pro­tected from the wind and the trees between camp­sites give you a feel­ing of privacy.

On the sec­ond day of our stay the noto­ri­ous south Easter decided to visit and here it can really blow, but sur­pris­ingly we were very lit­tle affected in the camp­site, whereas on the beach one was actu­ally get­ting sand­blasted. The beach is less than two and a half min­utes walk from the camp­site (I actu­ally timed it), so it is quite easy to pack a small pic­nic bas­ket and sit on the sand and watch a bril­liant orange sun­set. On most nights here one can expect an exquis­ite sunset.

If you enjoy walk­ing, you could take a walk to the wreck of the Kakapo, the round trip should take about an hour and a half, or if you feel a bit more ener­getic you could walk all the way to the end of Noord­hoek Beach. Add about another hour and a quar­ter for this.

Another walk worth con­sid­er­ing is walk­ing to Slangkop Light­house where you could take a guided tour, but there are many more walks one could do in the area. Con­sult a good map for more options.

If you do not enjoy bird­song then maybe you should con­sider another camp­site, as I can­not ever recall hear­ing so much bird noises from sun­rise to sun­set. Bring a bird­ing book along as this could pro­vide hours of pleasure.

Also do not be to alarmed if you quite sud­denly see some­thing jump out of the bush, as the camp­site also houses a large amount of fairly tame rab­bits, much to the kids delight. For peo­ple stay­ing in the North­ern Sub­urbs this is less than an hours drive, and a def­i­nite con­sid­er­a­tion for a quick (unplanned) week­end getaway.

Tips and things to do

These tips will prob­a­bly apply to many camp sites, but this is what we thought should not be forgotten
