Leentjiesklip Caravan Park, Langebaan in our VW California Beach Campervan

Leentjiesklip Caravan Park is situated roughly 120 kilometers from Cape Town on the R27 in Langebaan.  With the Strandloper Seafood Restaurant on its one side and Club Mykonos Resort further up the lagoon.  It is a great place to camp, right alongside the Langebaan lagoon with its “private” beach and a view of the mouth leading out to sea.

It was Friday, 14th August and still a little bit too early for the Spring flowers to be out.  Our journey began with a spectacular display of thick, coastal fog lying low over the ocean and lapping up in waves onto the land.  Chapmans Peak Drive was a dramatic scene of note!

Driving further away from Cape Town, we’d be leaving the coastal fog behind us for a while. We were hungry, so we decided to stop at our favorite sushi bar in Camps Bay at  The Codfather Restaurant before heading up the West Coast.

We arrived at Leentjiesklip Caravan Resort around  8.30pm.  The security guard who man’s the gate 24/7 let us in.  We’d phoned while on the road to let them know we were going to be arriving and staying for the night.  The security guard let us through the gate.

A few campers were camping on the far right, and there were plenty of lagoon edge campsites available.  Their lawns are as lush as expected with being situated right beside the sea.  A braai drum, tap and electrical plug point are on the sites.  The sites are pretty decent in size.

There are Chalets/Plettenberg cottages that one can hire if camping isn’t your thing.

The resort has a  convenient little shop at the front gate that stocks your basic holiday necessities that you may have forgotten to pack.  Kids can enjoy a few games of pool/snooker inside the cafe, or they can have a wild time in the colorful play park outside with lots of jungle gyms and swings.

We camped here for one night with our VW California Beach Campervan, which was super comfy, especially when the wind came up, as it tends to do on the West Coast.  The internal heater in our van worked like a dream.  The front chairs are super nifty as they swivel around enabling lots of space and comfy conversations between us.  We can push the base of the bed upwards, and it’ll stay just under the roof until you ready to pull it back down when you go to sleep.  Creating ample headroom within the vehicle.  A la style, deluxe!

Our  MPEG below depicts a few moments in time that we spent at Leentjiesklip Caravan Park.  The music behind the MPEG is none other than the great Pink Floyd, from the album The Endless River, Side 4, Pt. 2:  Eyes to Pearls.

Drop us a comment or email if you’d like to find out anything further or perhaps you’ve spent many a pleasant/unpleasant day there.  We’d love to hear from you.

Breathtaking Moments

I wish you abundant moments that take your breath away.

From a stranger’s kind gesture to the miracle of new life.

May our senses be open to acknowledging these manifesting moments that make our days and add spice to our lives.  

Pay it forward to make another one’s day in any way you can.

Belief in Karma is that it will come back to you three-fold, not always in the same way.  


“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

Maya Angelou – may she rest in peace.

Tide time

“We go with the currents, plan around the tides, follow the sun. We measure happiness by nothing we can hold… nothing we can catch. Everywhere…Life is jumping and elusive and momentously momentary. We want to sketch the days, distill the memories, make them last. At the same time, we know that the beauty is in the evanescence. Every wave comes in, then retreats. Every day promises, then turns its back and slips away. Every joy has a little tease in it, a give and a take, and leaves a wake of longing.”

The adventurer in me started when I was young

About us.001The dreamer and wanderer in me.

I once believed in all the fairytales.  Now I’m older.  I find myself living my fairytale, one step at a time. Life is about taking millions of little steps in the right direction to manifest our dreams into becoming our reality. If you want to get out there, go for it!  Don’t wait for tomorrow, start planning for it today.

May we all get the chance to take more vacations!

And when you do go on that vacation.

Try to take the time to detour off your route for a bit as this will usually lead you to be left with memories way beyond your wildest expectations.  Manifesting your vacation to be an adventurous journey and not just a destination station.

I made a Garmin adventure of our road trip from Quivertree Forest to Harnas Wildlife Foundation.  It shows you the route we took and the sights we saw along the way, as we head deeper into North Eastern Namibia territory.  I hope you enjoy and that it will be useful for yourself if you’re looking at making a trip to this region of Namibia.
