“Camped at Khwai - Northgate in February 2016. Ablutions were kept spotless and in full working order. The campsites were also clean and maintained daily. Our experience was superb. The community were welcoming and warm. Game though was rather sparse but then that's just what it was at that time. Great experience.” - Charles Becker, 2016/04/30

“In 2010 new ablusion blocks were erected at the campsite.” - Mietsie Visser, 2012/04/11

“The site is under trees on the banks of the river Khwai but is infested by a troop of well fed vervet monkeys. The two ablution blocks have flush toilets but are sadly in need of renovation which could be coming soon.” - David Clack, 2009/02/01
