We were so excited about this holiday for such a long time that perhaps our expectations ran away with us. The place is indeed beautiful and the log cabins are well positioned and sheltered. I was pleasantly surprised by what St Lucia as a town had to offer. Sadly, it seems like the Cape Vidal Camp coffers have run dry....

Having read many reviews on Cape Vidal on this site, we were very skeptical to go. I am pleased to say that we had a wonderfull time. We stayed in the log cabins. Yes the water is brown and undrinkable and do not smell nice. Bottom line, come prepared - this is Africa and not for the faint hearted. We...

Following our visit a year ago where fishing was great and our stay very enjoyable sadly I cannot say the same of this visit again. Although the chalets were in a fairly good condition one didn't have water and the the other chalets water were a bit "dodgy" - fortunately we brought water from St Lucia. But the Cape Vidal...

Having stayed at a number of parks board venues within KZN, including this one about 8 years ago, we have a fairly good expectation of the standard that is delivered; however in this case we were sorely let down to such a degree that we cut our stay short. The log cabins have been poorly maintained and the daily cleaning...

We camped in a roof-top tent with friends last week and had a blast amongst the coastal forest. The kids loved it here, the beach is a short walk away with a safe sheltered swimming area. Sitting round the fire at night was such a pleasure with good friends sharing stories of Africa and putting the world to rights. Some...

If I had known this was, what I was letting myself into I never would have booked it. It is dirty and stinks. I am not going to even try and take a shower, I might come out worst than what I went in. Very disappointed that they advertise this as accommodation. I have absolutely nothing good to say about...

We stayed here in a log cabin for one night. The rain was persistent sadly but did not Dampen our opinion of the location as we were there for the wildlife. The staff in the shop were rude and ignorant. Not willing to help us when we wanted drinking water, bread or beer.. The food available in the shop was...

We camped on site 33 which was nicely sheltered from the wind. The ablutions aren't brilliant, but suffice. The water is from a borehole so not drinkable, and only one block had hot water. The bins are emptied daily. All sites have electricity and a tap. Ladies offer dishwashing and sweeping services for R80/day (a bargain). The road between sites...

It is with great regret that I write this review. We have been camping for years at Cape Vidal and loved every second of it. Unfortunately the monkeys got so bad that we changed to a cabin. We have loved staying in the cabins. The price had almost doubled in the last year, which is not a problem but the...

Went to cape Vidal campsite in April, the campsite was half empty and they charged me R540 for one night as a solo camper, after paying R100 at the gate....very dissapointed....and to add salt to the wounds the showers were cold.
