We know you’ve been waiting for it. A reason to get out of your cosy nest, break out from under your comfy duvet, sneak away from the crackling fireplace.. okay maybe not, but did you know you’ll be getting all of that when checking in at any AfriCamps this winter?

Whoever said you can’t enjoy the outdoors during winter has never gone glamping with AfriCamps. Neither did they know all our tents are fully equipped for the chilly winter nights with an indoor fireplace, electric blankets and heater. To top it all off, we are happy to inform you of our chillingly low winter rates! (That’s about the only chilly thing about glamping this winter).

That said, we are also lucky to experience some beautiful warm days during the South Africa winter – so we still have plenty of opportunities for outdoor experiences. Have you heard we are also opening a brand new camp this July? Bookings for AfriCamps at Gowan Valley are now open!

R500 to spend?

Our last question to you is… what are you going to do with your R500 per day saving? We have some ideas…

AfriCamps at Doolhof, Wellington

Why not hire a Doolhof mountain bike for R150 a day to explore the area’s popular cycling routes, or make a stop at the tasting room to buy some of their award-winning wines? Treat yourself to a spa treatment in the comfort of your tent.

AfriCamps Doolhof Winter

Spa treatments in your tent or on the deck at AfriCamps at Doolhof. Prices available on request.

AfriCamps at Kam’Bati, Swellendam
Hire a canoe for R200 a day and explore the countless bird species that reside along the Breede River. Treat the kids to a round of putt-putt, or for the more adventurous, book your spot on Xama adventures’ river rafting excursion for R695 for the day. The rapids are especially thrilling during winter months.
