Vioolsdrift Camping


The Growcery Campsites

The Growcery Camp offers private campsites with magnificent river and mountain views. These are unobstructed views over the Orange River and Richtersveld Mountains. These private campsites will range in size and location. They all come standard with grass, indigenous trees, and great locations. These Private Vioolsdrift camping sites are prevalent, and we do suggest that you book well in advance. Our concept at The Growcery Camp is recycled, re-used and then upcycle. We urge all our visitors to make use of our well-signed waste and organic bins while visiting the camp. Take full advantage of our organic garden produce and fresh herbs.

Camping and caravanning are welcomed, and the resort provides a relaxed environment. Children can explore the playground while more adventurous guests can enjoy some of the many activities on offer in the area.
