So you’re planning a romantic glamping trip, but not quite sure if it will tick all the typical ‘romantic getaway’ boxes? Glamping with AfriCamps is nothing short of glamorous and we can assure you that you and your partner will have a romantic escape like no other. We’ve selected a few activities you’ll love doing with that someone special. Follow our simple instructions below.
1. Wine Down
Kick back and relax with a glass of bubbly or a fine glass of wine. AfriCamps at Doolhof and AfriCamps at Stanford Hills offer on-site wine tasting and sales. Find your new favourite and enjoy it with a platter at your tent.
2. Soak up the views in our outdoor wood-fired hot tubs
Whisper sweet nothings to your loved one in our outdoor wood-fired hot tubs. Simply light the fire, let the tub heat up, get in, and relax. Each tent at our locations in Wilderness, Swellendam, The Midlands, Hoedspruit, Pongola Game Reserve and Wellington comes with a hot tub included in your rate and a starter pack of wood is provided. Three tents at AfriCamps at Ingwe in Plettenberg Bay have outdoor wood-fired hot tubs. Be sure to book a hot tub tent when you book your stay!
3. Starry starry night
There’s nothing quite like a star-filled night sky. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, switch off the lights, and sit back on our deck loungers. On a clear night, you’ll be able to see a few shooting stars. AfriCamps Klein Karoo offers a guided stargazing experience from the comfort of your deck. Bookings can be made with your camp host and are subject to availability. A romantic glamping must-do!
4. De-stress those shoulders
Book a romantic couples massage at AfriCamps at Doolhof or AfriCamps at Mackers. These two camps can arrange a number of spa treatments ranging from facials to pedicures. Prices are available on request and bookings can be made with your camp host.
5. Have a little cuddle
Light the indoor fireplace and snuggle up on the sofa, or enjoy the cosiness of our extra length queen size beds with crisp linen – nothing wrong with sleeping in on your romantic break! Have your morning coffee on our comfy deck loungers and enjoy the view.
6. Romantic drives
All 11 AfriCamps locations are surrounded with SA’s spectacular natural beauty, which makes for beautiful drives. AfriCamps Klein Karoo offers a guided morning and afternoon drive on a Karoo farm, the Garden Route boasts with scenic drives like the 7 Passes Road, explore the longest wine route in the world – the Route 62 between Robertson and Oudtshoorn, and AfriCamps at Mackers is only 25 minutes from Kruger National Park and your hosts are ready to book a guided game drive for you.
7. Soak up the sun
Head to the beach, the pool or the river to cool down. AfriCamps at Ingwe in Plettenberg Bay and AfriCamps at Oakhurst in Wilderness are a stone’s throw from some of SA’s most popular beaches, and a few secret beaches too.
