Mavuradonha Bush Camp
Mavuradonha means place of running streams in the Shona language. For Carol and Mike it is a place on the bank of the Groot River. One hundred and fifty metres wide, rarely in flood and grown to reed, the river supports large areas of Acacia Karoo trees, some of which provide good shade. Grassed to the reeds edge the two main camps are facilitated with two long drops, two flush toilets, and four showers with hot and cold potable water.
The first camp has a splash pool especially useful for bikers in hot weather. The far side of the Groot is bordered by Bokkeveld koppies giving a good sense of the Klein Karoo especially in the moonlight.
There are two restaurants in the village and odd things to see along its dirt roads.
For those who really like to walk there is the Rooiberg Nature Reserve with its pristine views high in the Rooiberg foothills from where the village gets its fresh water. Otters have made their home where the Sand River enters the Groot near the end of the last camp.
