All 8 Luxury AfriCamps Spots You Need to Check Out With the Family

WATCH: 3 Brand-new campsites and all the boutique luxuries these super shareable boutique glamping experiences have to offer, PLUS: booking open for the new camp in the Cape Winelands

Pre-summer special: Book to stay at an AfriCamps location (except Doolhof) before 13 December 2018 and get over 30% off. Pay only R1090 per night (save up to R500 per night). This is for bookings where you stay between 23 November and 13 December 2018.

Canoe and hike on the Garden Route, have a boutique foodie glamp at the foothills of the Klein River Mountains and soon, relax in a hot tub in the Cape Winelands just an hour outside of Cape Town.

AfriCamps does family holidays and weekends away a little differently with boutique glamping campsites, limited to a handful (because you want it to be special) 55sqm custom-made tents, each complete with 2 bedrooms, XL comfy beds, full kitchen, deck, aircon and fireplace, as well as cool extras like hot tubs and even whale-watching by air at the Stanford camp, set on privately owned unspoilt farmland and estates around the country.

They've just launched three new camping sites in 2018, two of which are in the Western Cape. The latest camp in the Cape Winelands opens in December and is open for bookings. Camp among the vineyards, just an hour outside of Cape Town in Wellington. 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.


Wine tasting, hiking, picnicking and mountain biking. The all-new AfriCamps at Doolhof in Wellington is just an hour outside of Cape Town. It's on a wine estate, so you'll camp amongst the vines of varietals, from Sauvignon Blanc to Chardonnay. The new location opens on 14 December. Bookings are already open.
