BBaviaanskloof, with World Heritage Site status is one of South Africa's best kept travel secrets and Komdomo Campsite, situated on the banks of the Groot River, is the gateway into Baviaanskloof and an ideal position to camp or caravan in order to explore further. Views from the camp are spectacular, the rock formations have to be seen to be believed. The campsite has 22 large, informal sites and divided into 3 sections. There are 2 ablution blocks, one very old and one newer, both functional but, certainly when we were there, in need of some tlc! Had they been in better order I would certainly have given a higher rating. Being situated as it is in a deep river valley, there is not a great deal of sunshine (we were there late May, sun got to our site at 10am, by 3 we were in shadow) so, particularly in cooler months try to choose as open a site as possible. Stock up as well as possible with groceries, fresh produce, drinking water (we didn't drink from taps, I can't comment on water quality) as there is no place other then the village of Patensie (about 1/2 hours drive) to purchase. Be sure too, to pack food tightly, being in a nature area there are baboons. Close by is Kougar Dam, well worth a visit.
