Eclectic Bush Haven Camp Ground 1
This wonderful peace of paradise exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I entered through the front gates I was entranced. The accommodation was more than value for money. The camping area with flushing toilets and hot showers and the fully equipped camp kitchen was the most comfortable camp ground I have ever experienced and so affordable. The apartment was adorable and also fully equipped. Furnished in Julie's eclectic style it was warm and welcoming. The hosts were accommodating, interesting and a pleasure to spend time with. I was invited to participate in an early morning yoga class with Julie and also an enlightening and cathartic meditation session. The fact that dogs are welcome was the icing on the cake. My fur baby Kira enjoyed her time there almost as much as I did, with beautiful walks and wonderous scents. We will definitely be returning to Julie's on our way back home.

A beautiful farm with incredible aesthetics. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and such a beautiful space. Hot showers, flushing toilets in a clean bathroom. Bush walks throughout the property were a great edition. We will definitely be back

Fabulous property
Fabulous property! We stayed just one night at this beautifully kept camp ground, with great facilities. The only downside was lots of mozzies.
