All 7 Luxury AfriCamps Spots You Need to Check Out With the Fam

WATCH: 3 Brand-new campsites and all the boutique luxuries these super shareable boutique glamping experiences, plus: a new Wellington camp coming soon 

Canoe and horse ride at Tsitsikamma, have a boutique foodie glamp at the foothills of the Klein River Mountains, dip your toes into the Sabie River – mere metres from your camp inside the indigenous riverside forest – or take a trip up to God’s Window.

AfriCamps does family holidays, tours and weekends away a little differently. Boutique glamping campsites, limited to a handful (because you want it to be special) 55sqm custom-made tents, each complete with full kitchen, wooden deck, XL comfy beds, aircon and fireplace, as well as cool extras like hot tubs and even whale-watching by air at selected camps, set on privately owned unspoilt farmland and estates around the country.

They've just launched three new camping sites around the Cape. And another new camp is coming in the Winelands – camp among the vineyards. It's just an hour outside of Cape Town at Wellington and opens in December. See more info below. 

It’s about taking the hassle and stress out of camping. No endless packing and unpacking, no crowded campsites, no need for your own equipment, no more shared ablutions. Instead, you and the family or friends get the chance to explore the Cape and SA’s diverse landscapes, people, food and adventures at your own pace and leisure, knowing you have a private shower and comfy bed to come back to tonight thanks to AfriCamps’ unique boutique camping experiences.

See for yourself.

NEW CAMP: WILDERNESS AND EXCLUSIVE GARDEN ROUTE TOURS
The latest AfriCamps location at Oakhurst in Wilderness has launched. It features eight tents on one of the last working Garden Route farms in the Outeniqua Mountains. Expect fishing, hiking, biking, a working dairy farm on the property to visit with the kids and the Garden Route’s famous unspoilt beaches, lagoons and viewpoints as well as hang-gliding and paragliding for the adventurous.

What’s more, the launch of Africamps at Oakhurst means that you can now explore the Garden Route, staying exclusively at AfriCamps as you travel from Swellendam to Oudtshoorn to Wilderness and then Plettenberg Bay.
