Camping at Areena Riverside Resort

Camping at Areena

ABOUT CAMPING

Enjoy camping on the river, with garden and Kwelera riverside camping and caravan sites in our idyllic family holiday resort. We offer competitive camping rates.

Many east coast camping enthusiasts have returned to our caravan park time and time again to stay on one of our 110 generously sized caravan or Kwelera River camping sites. Site sizes are an average of 12m x 12m. Most sites are well grassed and shady while other sites have cement slabs for a level and stable base to set up camp on.

With more than half of the sites spread along 800m of river frontage, there will be a site that is perfect for you. Each site has one 15-20 amp electrical outlet for a standard three pin plug and a braai stand with a grid. We have numerous sparkling, clean communal ablution blocks with hot water which are serviced daily. We welcome camper vans as well to our riverside resort.

A communal lounge with DSTV is available to all guests, as well as a swimming pool, tennis court and games room, with table tennis and a pool table.
We offer pensioner discounts and pensioner monthly camping specials as well as peak season pensioner camping for November to end January. All pensioners please enquire for further details. The resort is a bird watchers paradise, with many species to be ticked off that east coast bird watching list.

Fantastic family resort Fantastic family resort

"Areena is a wonderful place for camping with children. There are 2 playgrounds, a beautiful, large pool, plenty of space and so much for them to do. The grounds and ablutions are well kept. Areena is our favourite place to go camping; we camp here at least once a year."

Need to go back ASAP Need to go back ASAP

"I want to camp at Areena, I want to do all the excursions, I want to get married at Areena, I want to have a romantic dinner at the restaurant... I want to do it all. I need to go back to Areena ASAP...my time there was too short and I didn't get a chance to do everything I wanted to do. A definite favourite for me...I thoroughly enjoyed it."

A truly wonderful place A truly wonderful place

"We stayed for three nights camping with a caravan. The setting is just stunning. To wake up by the river each morning and enjoy the breathtaking beauty was amazing.
The facilities are excellent and the staff super. Everyone was so accommodating, friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. We loved every moment in this unique and special place. We’d love to return one day and hope and pray that after the difficult months of fighting COVID-19 in South Africa Areena will thrive again."

Great getaway Great getaway

"Whenever you feel like life is just getting too much, Areena is the best place to go. It has activities for the children, you can launch your own boat, some fishing for Dad and Mom if she likes and a great Spa. The staff are all friendly and attend to all needs."

"We have visited Areena Resort 5 times in our caravan. Each time has been an amazing experience of a simply outstandingly beautiful place. Early morning reflections off the water are amazing making for some special photography. Bird life is excellent another good reason for bring your cameras as are the many photos you can get of the wildlife in the area. At trip up the river to the river mouth is a must for any quest as is a meal or 6 at the restaurant which provides great food and excellent service. For the campers there is a nice SPAR 10 minutes away for your supplies when needed. I would and actually do recommend a stay here for any nature lover."
