Ebb and Flow Restcamp, Wilderness section of the Garden Route National Park Review
This rest camp is divided into the North and South sections. The South section is larger and consists of brick family cottages that sleep up to six, as well as log cabins and forest huts, both of which sleep up to four. The log cabins are prettier than the cottages, but both are bright and pleasant, furnished in a plain but adequate manner with floral or geometric curtains and upholstery; both have bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms with balconies. Forest cabins are smaller but cute. Campsites, some of which directly overlook the river, are set on a wide lawn under trees. The much smaller North section has a few grassy campsites and a dozen rondavels (round huts). Two of the rondavels don't have their own bathrooms, but the communal bathroom areas for the campsite are well maintained, clean, and adequate. You can fish, hike, and boat here.
