Picture this. You’re off to a 2-night golfing and glamping break to the lush Mpumalanga Lowveld, staying in AfriCamps’ signature glamping tents at the beautiful AfriCamps at Mackers in Hazyview. On your itinerary is an early morning self-drive to Sabi River Sun where you’ll enjoy a round of golf with your loved one (or your golf buddy). AfriCamps at Mackers arranges your golf game and even takes care of a golf cart – which means you’ll have a terrific game and might even sink that hole-in-one you’ve been so close to.

You’ll return to your fully equipped tent for a quick nap, falling asleep to the lull of the Sabie River flowing just outside. Rested as ever, you explore the property by foot and cool off in the beautiful infinity pool afterwards. You enjoy a sundowner on the deck overlooking lush Lowveld forest with the fire crackling away in the braai. The occasional calls of the 250+ bird species on the property confirms you are tucked away deep in the Mpumalanga nature and you think back on a memorable day spent. Bliss.
