Found amongst the rustling trees in a private forest, this secluded hideaway in Elgin Valley offers visitors a rare camping experience. Relax in luxurious bell tents amid tall beautiful pine trees.
The campsite is located an hour and a half from Cape Town, and it’s the perfect getaway spot to spend time with family and friends. The scattered tents create the illusion of being lost in an enchanted forest.
At night lanterns surround the wooden walkways to the 12 lush permanently pitched tents which are all equipped with the comforts of home. Each tent lounge has a fireplace, a family table, chairs, and comfy couches. The tents have their own wooden deck, real beds, and wooden bathrooms with big wooden windows.
There are also nightstands with reading lamps, so you can enjoy a nice book while you soak up the fresh air. The tent deck overlooks Elgin Valley and comes equipped with an area for braaing. Relax in a hammock and let the kids run wild in the wide open spaces.
