Booking

Magotho is the only one of the 3 Kwai Development Trust Camps that's open to the public, the other 2 are tour operator sites.

This is a large camping area.

There are ablution facilities now, but only cold water. Each stand has a concrete fire pit and ours also had a braai built in brick. There is a central deposit cage for rubbish.

There is a reception office at the camp now, built right in the front on one of the old sites on the Kwai River. The staff allocate sites, receive fees and sell firewood.

Travellers reported that during December 2013 they had lots of gnats about in this camp, which made things somewhat unpleasant, although this is also a recommended campsite by travellers to this area.

The view from some sites across the floodplains is a huge redeeming factor.

“There is a reception office at the camp now, built right in the front on one of the old sites on the Kwai River. The staff allocate sites, receive fees and sell firewood. There are ablution facilities now, but only cold water. Be aware that the water tank may run out of water, in which case staff will have to be alerted to start pumping again !” - Mietsie Visser, 2021/08/11
