The Stompdrift Dam Water Resort near De Rust and Oudtshoorn provides the only public access to the Stompdrift Dam with its “coastline” of more than 25 km that cuts into the foothills of the Great Swartberg Mountain Range.

Stompdrift Dam Water Resort is 6km from the hamlet of De Rust and adjacent to Meiringspoort. Surrounded by pristine hills and unspoilt vegetation it is home to more than 2 500 plant species and 50 bird species.

The Stompdift Dam Water resort has several distinct types of accommodation so we can tailor a package just for you

The Chalets
All the chalets at Stompdrift Dam Water Resort have an African Safari character and all are equipped with en suite bathroom, fans, fully equipped kitchenette with fridge, wash basin, micro oven, kettle, crockery, private wooden deck under trees with deck chairs, and enclosed private lapa with braai. We can accommodate from 6 to 16 people in a unit.

Bush Camp
The Fish Eagle Bush Camp is only reachable by boat, and for tens of kilometres the unspoilt hills and gorges are trackless. Here you are on you own - with the stars as the only other source of light. This is the place to relax - around a fire in the African veldt - away from it all.

Accommodation is in 4 tents on elevated wooden platforms while the fire in the lapa should never die. The tents are so positioned that they are hidden, from each other, in the thick vegetation of the Acacia Karoo forest.

The camp is fully serviced with toilet, drinking water, shower, ample firewood, chairs, cooking essentials, lanterns (which changes the forest to a fairyland at night), etc. and even salads, should you so prefer. Portage and cleaning is included.

The Werfhoender Safari Camp at Stompdrift, nestled among trees next to the camping site consist of 4 separate sleeping huts (each with two single beds and cosy balcony) and a large communal hut with lounge, kitchenette with fridge, wash basin, hot plates, kettle, tin cups & plates for 12, etc.

Safari Ship and House Boat
May transport up to 35 adults or 45 children at a time. A sunset cruise with snacks and the best wines of the area is always a “lekker” prelude to a night of fine food and good company in the Aqua Bush Restaurant. Or treat yourself and family and friends on a champagne breakfast on board. Tariffs varies on number of people and what your individual requirements are.

Sail away on your own for a day of angling, swimming and braaiing on the upper deck. Equipped with captain’s cabin with double bunk, head, gully, lounge, aft deck, and large upper deck with braai, swimming platform with ladder, etc. Sleeps four with a maximum of five.
