Every dog lover knows that vacations are always better with our furry friends by our side. And what’s better than a glamping getaway where you can enjoy all of life’s little luxuries PLUS an adventure with your canine companion in the great outdoors!? From the rugged Cederberg Mountains and warm hospitality of the Karoo to the pristine plains of Oudtshoorn and the tranquil vineyards of Stanford, AfriCamps boasts four captivating locations where both you and your furry friend can revel in outdoor adventures.
AfriCamps at de Pakhuys, Cederberg: The perfect place to paws and relax
Nestled in the captivating Cederberg Mountains against the backdrop of striking rock formations, AfriCamps at de Pakhuys offers a tranquil escape for dog parents and an outdoor adventure for doggos. Open spaces provide dogs with ample freedom to roam and bask in the fresh mountain air. While their humans soak in the scenic beauty of the rugged landscape and ancient San rock art, their pups can delight in the myriad of natural sights and scents that surround them.
AfriCamps at Karoo 1, located on a farm in the Hex River Valley, boasts 13 boutique glamping tents that are nestled in a beautiful, rugged landscape softened by Karoo shrublands. The picturesque farm and intricate rock faces make for magnificent views, best enjoyed from the outdoor wood-fired hot tubs next to each tent. Doggos and their humans are welcomed by Benji, the goodest boy and resident doggo who gives guests the first taste of the warm Karoo hospitality they will experience during their stay. Bring along your favourite adventure buddy and come and explore the stunning property along our many hiking and MTB trails!
With a dog-friendly onsite restaurant and tasting room, and loads of outdoor activities, AfriCamps at Stanford Hills in Stanford has been welcoming pets since day one. This camp perfectly combines delicious food and wine with nature and the great outdoors. Even better, furry family members can join in on all of the fun! Some of our four-legged guests’ favourite activities on the farm include hiking trails on the fynbos and protea-covered farm, running along on mountain biking trails, having a splash in the farm dam, accompanying their humans on fishing trips, and if they’re lucky, snatching a piece of braai meat when no-one’s watching.
AfriCamps Klein Karoo is situated on an authentic working ostrich farm just outside Oudtshoorn. Our fully equipped dog-friendly glamping tents are surrounded by the arid landscape of the Karoo and breathtaking views of the Swartberg Mountain range. Rufus, our resident doggo (and quite a legend among our guests) is the number one doggy explorer of our camp and we can certainly say – he approves! With loads of space to run freely, your dog can now accompany you to this pristine setting. After a day of tail-wagging fun, settle down next to the braai and soak up the extraordinary views while enjoying the company of your best friend!
