Situated in Pennington, a picturesque seaside town nestled in indigenous coastal forest, Characters Garden Park offers an unforgettable opportunity to immerse yourself in nature on the South Coast. Relax in one of our many shaded sites and listen to the waves a stone's throw away.
The tranquil setting has you feeling miles away from civilisation, but shops and restaurants are all within a short walk. While Pennington Beach is only a few steps away, offering up a sandy beach, tidal pool, crystal clear rock pools and some of the best fishing spots in the area. Within the park, you can make use of our large swimming pool, playground, soccer pit and games hall, featuring a ping pong table, dartboard and pool table.
We are frequently commended on our spotless ablutions and our terraced sites give campers a sense of privacy. Braai while watching the sun set over the ocean while the indigenous trees shelter you from any wind.
Umdoni Park, which features 18 holes of golf at one of South Africa's most underrated courses is only 2 km away. There is a number of outdoor activities on offer at Umdoni Park, including mountain biking, trail running, hiking and birding. Over 100 bird species have been spotted at Characters – see if you can add to our list!
We have approx. 70 sites all catering to the different needs of holidaymakers. There are also three fully equipped Rent-A-Tents available and an 8-sleeper self-catering house on the park.
