THE AFRICAMPS EXPERIENCE
AfriCamps is all about boutique glamping at the most beautiful working farms and estates in South Africa. Guests are welcomed by the landowners and their teams who offer a unique, behind-the-scenes look into SA’s various farming industries. Guests can explore and unwind in the great outdoors, experiencing everything from biking and hiking to seclusion and serenity, all while staying comfortably in our fully equipped boutique tents.
BOUTIQUE GLAMPING TENTS
Our custom-designed boutique glamping tents are spacious and fully furnished with excellent kitchens, comfortable bedrooms and large showers. They offer guests the freedom and flexibility of a self-drive holiday, the closeness to nature of a camping trip and the comfort and convenience of a beautiful self-catering unit. Our tents and properties are suitable for close friends, couples and families.
FARMS AND GLAMPING ROUTES
With AfriCamps glamping camps in the Klein Karoo, the Cape Winelands, Overberg, the Garden Route, The Midlands, Zululand, Magoebaskloof and around Kruger National Park, you can choose your ideal location or travel from one farm to another. You will see and enjoy the most beautiful parts of the country and learn everything about the typical South African products that our farms produce, or fauna and flora they preserve.
Sustainability, local empowerment, education and enrichment of lives throughout our value chain is close to our hearts. On our beautiful properties, we aim for families to discover the joys of farm life and the serenity that can come from being in nature, while spending time with the ones who matter most. The activities on our propertires teach guests of all ages how valuable our farming industries are and that each guest has a direct impact on the world aroud them. Children learn about farm animals and where the fresh produce on their dinner tables come from, all while spending time in the great outdoors.
Our business philosophy is strongly based on the foundation of sustainability. This is one of the reasons we empowered young local workers to produce all AfriCamps tents and furniture in our factory in the Western Cape. After hiring and training staff from an area with a high unemployment and crime rate, we embarked on a journey to teach our team sewing, woodwork, welding, painting, electrical skills and more. Most of our factory staff have become exceptionally skilled employees with skills to use throughout their lives.

Our boutique glamping camps are situated on the most beautiful working farms, reserves, and estates in the country. Experience local farm life, taste delicious farm produce and learn how local produce is made.
AfriCamps partners with local landowners and farmers to set up unique boutique glamping experiences on their properties. The farm owners and their teams proudly manage their AfriCamps location. As true ambassadors of their area, our local hosts go above and beyond to indroduce guests to their farming industries and the unique qualities of the region.
TYPICAL SOUTH AFRICAN PRODUCE
With all the beautiful local produce that our country has to offer we like to show off a little bit. Whether it’s our wines, beautiful proteas, ostrich products, olives, wildlife or Karoo lamb, we’d like you to experience it all with us. Please bear in mind that we don’t do touristy show farms but only the real deal!
A CONNECTION WITH NATURE
We aim for families to go back to basics. To rediscover the essence of farm life and the serenity that can come from being in nature. Families spend quality time together, while kids are educated about the animals on the farm, the fresh local produce of the area, and how people can impact the world around them.
