Municipal Caravan and Camping Park – Langebaan
We decided to do a getaway within the 120km radius from Cape Town! Unfortunately, one cannot book a site, so if you are going and wish to have a seafront plot, you have to arrive early … preferably before midday on the Friday…. It was beginning of Feb and the park was 95% full … BUT we did go over a weekend when there was a “slight” heat wave and pretty much NO wind … 35 degrees …. If possible arrive on the Thursday and stay till Sunday! Just not a luxury we can all afford though!
The views are amazing, and well worth making sure you are there to get one … Once you get there and you have paid you can drive around and pick any site you wish!
Each set of sites has direct access to the beach, you shouldn’t therefore have people walking through your campsite for beach access.
Nice for kids, especially ages 8 and up …. As the kids can spend all day up and down to the beach and you can keep an eye on them from your chair under your gazebo!
Ablutions are clean and we only waited once for a shower, there was hot water every time. Park has boom access and security both at the gate and also walking around the site.
There is a shop on site, but we didn’t go in, the only thing I did see them advertising was ice! The weekend we were there was quiet as far as camp sites go, not once did I wish someone would turn boom boxes off nor pipe down at all …. It was good normal community noises.
The further back in the camp site you go the more grass you have, and the plots are terraced so you have some sea view from most plots.
The seafront plots are a bit more sandy, and there are thorns … BUT I would wear my slops all weekend for the view!!
Each site has a built in ground level circular braai. Many campers had “washing machine drums” and Webbers…
Each site has a tap and a hosepipe
Prices are very reasonable, however, one has to pay cash. No EFT’s nor bookings allowed.
Advice I would remember when we next go:
Check weather especially wind…
Leave early on Friday to secure seafront plot
Ground sheets…. I only had one I would take another one at least.
Additional Gazebo we have one on our tent but I would take another one in case for the shade.. there are very few trees so one has to make your own shade…. Typical West Coast.
There is a park for the kids on the Cape Town side… great if you have kids if not then drive to the right from the gate to be further away.
Overall we had a stunning weekend, I would definitely go again. I would not like to be there over Dec /Jan, I think like all the camp sites this would be very cramped. Also not end of Nov /Dec when the Matrics are finishing.
