About this campspace #s004452
Gecko Rock Private Nature Reserve is nestled in the Nougaspoort Valley, just 25 km from Touwsrivier, and offers visitors an eco-adventure destination. Our mission at Gecko Rock is to offer our visitors an unparalleled outdoor experience in the South African Karoo, one of the most unique natural areas on earth.
Comfortable accommodation options vary from camping to fully equipped self-catering modern, eco-friendly cabins. Guests can enjoy unspoiled views, unrivaled stars, days and days of hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, photography and 4×4 trails, or simply just sit in the shade with a good book or your favourite drink.
The scope of activities on offer at this special place, where the emphasis is on the preservation of the environment, is sure to hold an attraction for everyone. The list of options includes camping and hiking, 4×4 and 4×2 routes as well as driver training, rock climbing and mountain biking, customized team building events and conference facilities, flower and succulent tours, bird watching, and star gazing. Or you can simply relax in this unhurried retreat far away from cell phones and city stress.
De Wet’s Rus is a typical Karoo campsite that looks out into a stunning valley, bordered by mountains.
Walking and cycling trails are close by and you be enchanted by unmatched sunrises, magical sunsets and a panorama of stars.
For those laid-back Karoo days, the splash pool is filled from mid September to mid April.
