Hi Madman, I only saw your post now...the strip you asked about is at the Tierkrans Farm east of Oranjeville. I have a shack there with a taxiway to the main runway. You guys are welcome to visit. If I'm there that specific weekend I'll have coffee ready. Some of the Klip guys have flown there for a weekend before. Plenty space to camp. Runway is +/-500m with no obstacles. The actual strip is about 500m west of where you have marked on the picture in your post.

Thanks for the invite Giep, I'll also come visit when I'm flying there again !!!! I've chatted with on the radio a few times.
