General information

You have undoubtedly heard of the term ‘glamping’ or ‘Boutique camping’. It is a fantastic way of traveling for people who love the outdoors and nature, but are looking for more comfort than just a dome tent with mattress and sleeping bag.

Imagine, you will be awakened in the morning by the rising sun and the singing birds. You make a delicious cup of coffee and start the day quietly on your own veranda, enjoying the view of a river, an idyllic lake, the mountains or the vineyards. That is glamping in the Western Cape of South Africa!

The small-scale camps where you will stay during this trip are in special places such as fruit plantations, wine estates and farms, surrounded by nature. The spacious ‘tents’ have two bedrooms and can accommodate up to five people. You have a private bathroom, a kitchen, dining table and seating area.
You will not be bored during your stay! You can take beautiful walks through the forests and mountains, canoeing, mountain biking, horseback riding, wine tasting and visiting picturesque villages.
The Cape Winelands, mountainous areas, the dry and impressive Karoo, beautiful coastlines and overgrown green forests along the Garden Route are all on the program of this unique journey.

Are you traveling with children? Then this trip is perfect! The camps and the spacious tents are child friendly and you do not have to worry about malaria! Malaria mosquitoes do not occur in this area.

Dagprogramma

Upon arrival at Cape Town Airport, you can receive your Europcar rental car, Category C (Hyundai Accent Sedan or similar) and receive your glamping journey through the Western Cape province! (a different type of rental car is of course also possible)

If you arrive late in the evening, it is also possible to be first brought by a driver to a hotel in Cape Town and to receive your rental car the next day. It is also possible to spend a few days in Cape Town before or after your trip, ask us about the possibilities.

You don’t have to drive far today, the first camp of this trip is near the town of Wellington, about 80 kilometers from Cape Town airport. You can check in at the accommodation from 14:00 and, depending on the time you leave from Cape Town, you can make a stopover en route.

For example, you can choose to visit the historic center of Stellenbosch first or take a look at the village of Paarl. A trip to one of these villages or to Franschhoek is of course also possible on day two or three of your trip.

At the Doolhof wine estate you will stay in one of the six luxury tents surrounded by vines. Different wines are produced at this winery and you can try them during a wine tasting in the tasting room (R50 for five wines). A picnic lunch with fresh products is also possible, advance reservations required.There are also beautiful hiking and hiker routes through the wine countries around the property, you can go horse riding, rent mountain bikes or try the labyrinth.
