Guest Reviews

Dankie vir n baie lekker tydjie.

Dit was n bitter lekker wegbreek na julle toe. Die terrein is ongelooflik mooi en goed versorg. Ons het in n Chalet tuisgegaan en dit was alles en meer as wat ons verwag het. Die eienaars en personeel het ons deel laat voel van die familie. Al die lekker geklets terwyl ons vis gevang het langs die dam. Ons het n hele 7 visse uitgetrek en weer teruggesit, so daar is vis. Die kampterein is ook indrukwekkend en uitmuntend versorg. Dit is lekker om net langs die dam in stilte te sit en sommer net te wees.

A Gem

A gem of a camping site where management aim to satisfy its guests is very visible.

Stephen Davidowitz - 8 January 2023

Will recommend it to anyone

I was pleasantly surprised to see how neat and tidy everything was. The rubbish bin was cleaned up every morning as well as the braaiers. Another thing I was super impressed by is that when a power interruption occurs there is still lighting in every bathroom. Of course that each campsite has its own bathroom is a really nice idea. Well done everybody involved in running this establishment. Will recommend it to anyone that is in the area. You will see me again.

Almal is vriendelike.

Baie baie baie dankie vir n lekker week. Dit was by ver die beste kampterein waar ons nog ooit gekamp het. Almal is vriendelike. Die Werknemers as ook die mense wat daar kamp. Oms beveel julle links en regs aan. Op Fb ook. Mag julle n geseende jaar het. Sien julle gou weer.

Excellent Service

On a stop over from Cape Town to Addo Elephant Park, I decided to set up camp at Oppi Dam. The establishment is well maintained and I received excellent service from booking until check-out. It was my second time at Oppi Dam and what brought me back was the location, near the R 328 just outside Oudtshoorn and on the road to the Cango Caves as well as Swartberg pass, near Cango Ostrich farm and Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. The levels coming in from the road include first the reception, a shop and liquor store, then through the remote controlled gate where the cottages and the dam are situated and around the next corner to the camping ground and swimming pool area. It is a fantastic camp site with great space, individual abolition facilities for each plot including a stoep and a wonderful pool with loungers to relax. This amazing place is clean, safe and secure. The view to the Swartberg mountains is unspoiled and it is a tranquil place with star gazing quality at night.

Elke Frauenknecht - 27 April 2022


We had the most wonderful stay at Oppi Dam Resort and would recommend this camp site to anyone and everyone! The grounds are meticulously maintained and are lovely and green. There are 2 pools to choose from and they are both lovely. We also want to extend our gratitude to all the friendly staff who went out of their way to assist us when our vehicle broke down. Despite the Van issues and the fact that our stay was extended we had the most WONDERFUL holiday and we will definitely be back.

Kerry Bokhorst - 5 January 2022

We found the park super clean and very peaceful

Firstly thank you for accommodating us earlier than our original booking. We found the park super clean and very peaceful. Having our own ablutions a bonus. I would reccommend Oppi-Dam to anyone looking for peace and beauty

Gareth and Rose van As - 31 December 2021

Would definitely recommend it

We absolutely loved our stay. The accommodation was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. We loved the facilities such as the clean pools, dam and the gorgeous gardens. We also loved the fact that the shop was so efficient and made it very easy for us to re-stock. The lamb pies were the best we have ever tasted. We found the whole place to be so peaceful - would definitely recommend it.

Kirsty Allen - 26 December 2021

Uitstekend en word goed onderhou

Ons het die naweek van 19-22 November 2021 by Oppi dam gekamp. Die fasiliteit is baie goed geleë. Ons het die rustigheid baie geniet. Die privaat ablusie en kuier area is uitstekend en word goed onderhou. Die hele terrein is in uitstekende toestand. Ons waardeer die streng bestuur van die fasiliteit sodat almal 'n rustige atmosfeer kan geniet. Beveel dit aan vir enige kampeerder wat van netjiese rustige omgewing hou. As ons 'n punt uit 5 moet gee - is dit 6 uit 5!!

Schalk en Hester Marais - 22 November 2021

Uitstekend versorg

Ons het ons verblyf baie geniet. Alles is perfek en uitstekend versorg. Al wat ons graag sou wou gehad het is n onderdak verhitte swembad. Die oord is baie sentraal gelee. Kan Calitzdorp, Die Hel, Swartbergpas, Prince Albert,de Rust Meiringspoort besoek. Montagupas ry. Ons het self Knysna Wilderness en George besoek. En dan natuurlik Oudtshoorn. Die Eienaars en personeel gee uitstekende diens en vriendelikheid.

Estelle Gerneke - 16 September 2021

Alles is perfek

Dit is onverbeterlik. Alles is perfek en ek sou niks wou verander nie. Baie dankie dat julle pensioenarisse tegemoet kom met billike pryse. Sterkte vorentoe. Ons sal julle altyd aanbeveel en gereeld terug kom.

Elmarie de Meyer - 21 September 2021

Gerieflike verblyf

Fantastiese skoon, veilige en gerieflike verblyf met heerlike swem en visvang geriewe. N MOET vir enige kamper.

Andre Calitz - 26 September 2021

This is a place to visit

This camp site is a true gem for setting, cleanliness and friendliness of the hosts. From booking on-line to departure you encounter hospitality of the highest quality. The sites have individual ablutions and kitchen area and are very spacious. Swimming pools are kept clean at all times and surrounding areas are in pristine condition. The on-site shop is well stocked and anything not readily available there requires a short 15km drive into town. No doubt in the world that this is a place to visit.

Andrew Campbell - 24 February 2020

5 star accommodation

Ons het so lekker naweek by oppi dam gehad. Dis stil en mooi skoon. Het so lekker ontspan dat ons wou nie huis toe gaan nie. Sal julle weer sien. 5 star accommodation sal ek se.

Charlene McClune - 28 November 2019

A place called home

We wish to thank everyone involved at Oppi Dam, this was our second time we stayed in exactly the same spot, and truly loved every moment. Everyone was helpful from the moment we started our booking to the time we left. A place called home, as everyone makes you feel like part of the family. Thanks for another wonderful experience. Francois & Sharon Joubert

Francois Joubert - 19 August 2019

Rustige verblyf

Rustige en beeldskone omgewing. Oudtshoorn het in ons harte geklim en ons neem 'n klein stukkie van haar saam huistoe. Oppi Dam is 'n rustige verblyf en in beeldskone ligging.

Werner Wessels - 20 June 2019

Highly recommend!

Great place, very clean and well appointed. The private ablutions are a luxury; we were welcomed by the owner who ensured we had everything we needed. We will certainly be back and can highly recommend Oppie Dam.

Brian and Louisa Mc Nally - 07 June 2019

Peaceful break away

We stayed in Chalet A at Oppi Dam and enjoyed it so much, we booked a extra night. If we didn't have to get back to work, we would have stayed longer. What a beautiful place. Neat and clean with everything you need to stay comfortable. I didn't miss my home at all. The owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. They went out of there way to make our stay a stay we will never forget. It is close to a lot of tourist attractions which is a welcome bonus. I would definitely recommend Oppi Dam for a peaceful break away.

Natasja Schamrel - 06 June 2019

Baie vriendelike

Pierre en Rosina Schoeman, sout van die aarde. Warm ontvangs deur baie vriendelike personeel/eienaars. Ontspanne kamp, puik versorg met n aanvullings depot by ontvangs. Privaat en persoonlike ablusie met krag annex met kombuis geriewe en sterk geboude sitplekke en tafels. Omhein met elektroniese hekke. Swembad, dam en baie meer. Gerieflik tussen Oudtshoorn (15km) en Kango Grotte (15km) Addisionele verkenning kan Calitzdorp, Mosselbaai en George insluit binne n uur se ry. Met my eerste besoek het ek my verblyf verleng en het reeds geboek vir later die jaar. Om n juweel weg te bsteek moet n mens nie daaroor praat nie, maar wie kan oor Oppi-Dam stil bly?

Gert Kalis - 02 May 2019

Great value for money!

It was our second stay, and we'll be back on our next holiday. From reception to the people taking care of the facilities, everybody super friendly. We feeled really being welcome. Stood in site No 3. Everything was spotless, and it was just a pleasure to have a shower in the private facilities. The first evening the owner himself came to check if we are settled, if anything is to ouir satisfaction and if we need something, with some time for a little chat. There was shady parking space under a tree, which we appreciated very much, as we had a big quantity of heat-sensible medical stuff for my wife in the car. (For dialysis). Spacious grassy sites. Access is really for campers only through a remote controlled gate, which you open and close yourself. If not some stressed guy drives away without closing the gate, nobody, not belonging to the Caravanpark is coming in. The place is close enough to tourist atractions such as Cango caves Crocodile ranch, but far enough from Town, so that no "Nightpeople" come out there. Definitely great value for money!

Daniel Schaedeli - 01 May 2019

Extraordinary stay

Very, Very, Very Nice. Absolutely enjoyed it. Will most certainly return and will also inform acquaintances and friends. Thank you very much for a extraordinary stay.

James Denton - 19 April 2019

Dit is 'n pragtige skoon, netjiese en onderhoude kampterreun. Baie vriendelike en hulpvaardige mense. Difinitief ons gunsteling kampplek. Baie stil en pragtige gras, geriewe en swembad. Veilige plek om weg te kom van die gejaag van die lewe.Heerlike winkeltjie met alles wat jy nodig het. Visvang in die dam is 'n hoogte punt. Baie dankie ons waardeer julle.

Henriette van Niekerk - 19 April 2019

Camping heaven

alk about a 'glamping' kinda campsite! For someon who is not a camper, Oppi dam has changed my views completely! We loved our was way bigger than we expected, so we all had ample space, the site was very clean & the grass lusciously green. We will definitely be back! Ps. The ablution area was squeaky clean. Camping heaven.

Unforgettable Stay

I booked the place for my daughter and her hubby for a stay while they were working in the area. They absolutely raved about the place! They are in love with Oppi Dam and said they will definitely go back there. My daughter, being an earth child, had a ball on the dam reading her book sitting in the boat. Thank you for making their stay unforgettable!

Therese v d Berg - 25 October 2018

Love Oppi Dam

We love Oppi Dam - need we say more!!!!

Bill and Carol Aston - 22 October 2018

Will go again definitely

Oppidam was fantastic. The chalet we rented were a lot bigger then expected. Everything you need to have a nice weekend was in the chalet. You only have to bring your food/spices and cold drinks otherwise it's all there. The chalet eve in the hot summer was nice and cool no aircon was even needed.

Willnes Eybers - 1 October 2018

Baie gasvry en maklik

Die kamp was voorwaar lekker, weer-eens. Ek sal dit vir enigeen aanbeveel. Julle is baie gasvry en maklik om oor die weg mee te kom. Al wat julle moet doen is om naweke langer te maak, lol.

Werner Cloete - 25 September 2018

Fantastiese Atmosfeer

Was absoluut fantasties om hier te kamp! Beslis een van die beste oorde wat ons al ooit besoek het en sal dit beslis aanbeveel. Die geriewe is netjies skoon en prakties met 'n fantastiese atmosfeer. Oppi dam is beslis 'n vyfster oord.

Giselle Van Schalkwyk - 4 April 2018

George Edwards - 1 April 2018

Netjiese kampplek.

Die mooiste netjiese kampplek , sal weer en weer daar gaan kamp. Hou van die idee dat jy jou eie badkamer geriewe het en nie moet stap na n ablisie blok toe nie. Die swembad is pragtig en het die 2 dae baie geniet. Baie dankie vir sulke lekker staanplekke.

Ina de Kock - 29 January 2018


Dit is beter, mooier, en groter as baie plekke wat ek al besoek het. Ek sal dit aanbeveel vir enige persoon.

Veronica Herselman - 3 January 2018

Baie dankie vir 'n wonderlike ervaring.

Ons het 'n paar dae in 'n Chalet gebly Desember, die huis is het alles wat jy nodig het, baie netjies en skoon. Die werkers het elke more die sakke kom leeg maak met 'n glimlag en almal is baie vriendelik. Dit is 'n baie rustige plek en mens het die stilte van die natuur regtig in geneem, tog is jy naby Oudshoorn en die winkels. Ons sal defnitief weer by Oppi Dam kom kuier.

Sherese Whale - 3 January 2018

We loved every moment of our stay.
