Turn left towards the Cango Caves at the intersection next to the CP Nel museum once your reach the center of Oudtshoorn and after driving for about 3 minutes, you will find yourself at the stone gate entrance to AfriCamps Klein Karoo.
Our first location opened up on the 1st of November and we have had great feedback from our first guests, one guest called it “the perfect paradise”. With the Karoo landscape as your backdrop and the Swartberg Mountains as your front view, it is easy to see that from the deck of each tent, you have your own piece of paradise.
We can’t hide the fact at everyone loves their morning cup of coffee and there is no better place to have that first cup in the comfort of the lounge chairs.
Here’s our top three tips for that perfect cup of coffee;
- Fresh beans, and for the freshest coffee beans in the area we recommend Beans about Coffee.
- Use fresh filtered water. This one maybe an ‘old wives tale’ but many seem to swear that it makes the coffee taste better.
- Don’t boil the water too much. A warm 200 degrees is perfect.
In our latest media spotlight AfriCamps Klein Karoo was featured in the famed House and Leisure. This South African magazine with a keen eye on style noticed all the details in the tent, such as the wooden pallets in the kitchen and the corrugated iron in the bathroom.
We challenge you to see how many more unique details you can spot in our tents during your stay at AfriCamps Klein Karoo. (Tag us ‘Africamps_SA’ in your Instagram posts and you could be winning yourself a quirky AfriCamps mug to take home after your stay).
Day time fun at AfriCamps Klein Karoo
Besides just relaxing in the tents and taking the breath-taking views, some guests have found themselves trailing off around the property to see if they can spot some of the game on the farm. As we can see from the pictures that they took these animals have no problem posing for a photo.
After a long day of exploring the Oudtshoorn area and spotting game on the farm, the evenings usually calm down with traditional farm braai outside your tent. With each tent having its own braai area, the only question left is who will be Braai Master.
With AfriCamps Klein Karoo now up and running we are happy to end off the year knowing that this is just the beginning.
Stay tuned for more locations opening in 2016.
