Our story begins in 2004 when Johan and Anneke Swart started Sitrusoewer as a small and private picnic spot on their farm next to the river. While it was reserved for friends and family, it quickly gained local popularity and the demand for a camping and fishing spot in the area lead to it being expanded over time. It now boasts a lapa, 4 cabins, 25 camping sites and 4 ablutions.


Kirkwood is a tiny town located in the Sundays River Valley. It is nestled in between fragrant citrus orchards and sustained by the Sundays River. The farm has been in the family for generations and has grown over time to produce world-class fruit. The farm has quite a long harvesting time, ranging from April to October, and during that time the farm is all in hustle and bustle. Sitrusoewer River Camp evolved with the times to be more comfortable whilst being more tuned in to nature. While we have a generator for loadshedding, it is far from the premises and guests get to enjoy all the luxury without the noise. The cabins are also equipped with a few basic appliances and aircons, because the less you have to pack, the better!  We welcome day visitors, long-standing campers and everyone in between! 

This place is fantastic. Affordable. Great sunsets. Everybody is very helpful and friendly. I can strongly recommend anybody to book and revive yourself. -  Johan Fourie
