AfriCamps Magoebaskloof is located between Tzaneen and Haenertsburg in Limpopo, where 10 fully equipped boutique glamping tents overlook the mesmerising Magoebaskloof landscape. The tents are surrounded by lush gardens, farm dams, and exquisite bird species where birders, hikers, and MTB enthusiasts can explore to their hearts’ content!
‘Kloof’ translates to gorge, and this gorge is spectacular in many ways. Magoebaskloof is a series of lush green valleys popularly known as ‘The Land of the Silver Mist’ due to the soft mist blanket often covering the valleys. It is this soft mist and good rainfall that creates a thick forest blooming with amazing plant species. Streams, waterfalls, and dams dot the area.
During your stay, you will catch glimpses of the lush Afromontane forest, eucalyptus, pine and tea plantations, and avocado, berry, and kiwi farms.
The camp lies just outside Haenertsberg at the popular Cheerio Gardens Wedding Venue. The property is best known for its exquisite gardens – the true passion of former owner and botanist, Sheila ‘Box’ Thompson who started to create the gardens from scratch in 1946. The Gardens have since blossomed into what it is today – one of South Africa’s most beautiful garden wedding venues.
Cherry blossoms, Crab Apple trees, Azaleas, African ferns, and Pin Oaks invite you in, and the vibrant colors of Hydrangeas, Camellias, Irises, and Foxgloves that flourish during spring are sure to steal you over.
The abundant birdlife comes as no surprise, and guests can spot Green Twinspot, Barratt’s Warbler, White-starred Robin, Lemon Dove, the elusive Narina Trogon, and Half-collared Kingfisher during their stay. Samango monkeys jumping from tree to tree and the cheerful whistling of farm labourers add to the calm garden atmosphere. Guests can expect a good dose of rest for the soul!
The picturesque Haenertsburg with its rolling grasslands, bright-coloured flowers, and European-influenced architecture can remind guests of a Swiss village. The village and its immaculate gardens invite visitors from far and wide for a peaceful break from the city. You are sure to leave relaxed and recharged.
