    the camp sites have had a major revamp and really are worth the stay now
    new paved roads, well demarcated sites and new modern ablutions

    We first went to Cape Vidal in April 2008, we had the most memorable holiday & have since highly recommended the Camp Site to many many friends....

    We returned in to Cape Vidal Jan 2011 - I could not believe it was the same place that we had raved so much about.... It was disgusting... the ablusions were so smelly, the staff who were meant to be cleaning the ablusions sleeping in the store room... there was no toilet paper.... the staff were forever spending a great deal of time locked in the toilets....

    The office staff are so rude & not interested in their visitors... The shop is a waste of time... there were 4 large chest freezers all empty... Not an ice cream in sight... in all the "Ola" freezers.... Not one packet of chips on all the Simba POS display stands....

    After 2 nights we eventually found the Camp Manager, & yes he did get the toilet situation sorted.... But the general maintenance of the buildings is shabby.... really for the price you pay to camp there.... A coat of paint is well the least they could do

    Train your staff guys.....Any establishment that deals with tourism have a responsibility to train their staff & make them understand that customer service is what keeps the place successfull & their jobs possible...

    I lived in Mtubatuba for many years and we were at Vidal every possible weekend, except Easter and December, then it is way too crowded, you must be at the gate by 05h00 if you want to get in etc, let the holiday makers enjoy those thrills, we have it to ourselves the rest of the year. There will always be negative comments, no matter where you go, please remember that this resort is run by EKZNW and funds are limited for certain projects, there is always a camp manager on duty to report negative things to, report and make it better for yourself. This is one of the few remaing destinations of its kind (NO BUS LOADS OF DRUNKS AND NOISEMAKERS)and a place that will be with me forever! One of a kind!!

    We went at the end of September to Cape Vidal and stayed in the Log cabins.We previously camped a couple of years ago which I can also recommend.It was really a great experience. I was blown away again by the natural beauty of the place and the amount of wildlife present.Some people I see complain about the monkeys, but I found it better from when I was there previously.Just dont leave food out and take care.

    If its nature, beach, snorkeling, fishing, game watching your after this is the place to be.

    I see a lot of negative comments about Cape Vidal and thought I should voice my opinion. I have been going to Vidal regularly for the past 30 years and not much has changed, including the ablutions and facilities in the campsite. I think this is part of what makes it special aside from its obvious natural beauty. I do agree the cabins could do with an upgrade but they are in no way uncomfortable. The camp and cabins are very rustic but if you are going to a place like this just for the accommodation then you are unfortunately not going for the right reasons. If however you are looking to get back to nature in a lush, beautiful and peaceful surrounding then this is paradise! I have traveled around the world and am yet to find a beach that can come close to it. Put your ear to the ground here and you can hear the pulse of Africa. About the monkeys, Cape Vidal is a game reserve, which protects wild animals, humans are entering their environment and should pay them the necessary respect, not complain when the animals are just doing what is necessary to survive. Just lock all food in you car or if you have a decent cooler with a lock on it then you'll be fine. Otherwise place something heavy on top of the cooler box and they wont be able to get in. In the cabins, just lock all the doors and windows when you go out or have an afternoon kip. Another fantastic point is there are plenty leopard here, and they are often spotted around the cabins. Enjoy!
