About Zonnenstrahl Camping Ground

Situated on the outskirts of Nieu-Bethesda, in lush grounds with peaceful willow trees, the Zonnenstrahl Caravan Park is a fantastic choice if you are looking for affordable camping accommodation, in a quiet and relaxing environment.

Comprising eight sites, each camp site has access to power points, water points and braai facilities. The communal ablutions have two separate toilets and two showers.

The town of Nieu-Bethesda has been painted by tragedy, fertility and religion. More importantly it has a great sense of community and many historical sites. The famous Owl house is the town’s main attraction, and an important stop. Learn the sad, yet inspirational story of Helen Martins and experience the legacy she has left behind.

Like all country towns, the town of Nieu-Bethesda has a lovely church, a police station, a small general dealer, craft shops, coffee shops, and the Sneeuberg Brewery and the Fossil Centre.

          We stayed at Zonnenstrahl for a week while we attended a congress in Nieu Bethesda and we certainly enjoyed it. The fact that you have bathrooms instead of just a shower, a verandah to sit sheltered from the rain (we camped in a tent) and the clean conditions ensured by the very friendly management couple Elize and Japie, made it a pleasure. The whole site is level, grassed and have lovely willow trees to provide shade. We'll stay here again.

          This was our 3rd time camping here and as always we love the beautiful location and the unique feel of the town but we did not sleep well this time. Between the rooster, the peacocks and the many many dogs that barked most of the night, it was difficult to sleep as we missed the peace and silence of the Karoo nights.We were happy to come across Hullabaloo Coffee Bar & Eatery. The hosts were amazing, the coffee was great and the Belgium waffles were delicious.
