About us

    Glamping in South Africa

    Africamps is all about boutique camping (or glamping) at the most beautiful working farms and estates in South Africa. Here you are welcomed by the landowner and his family, learn about their farming business and experience everything from hiking to hammocking, from seclusion in nature & romantic escapes, to family outings and merry chaos with friends!

    Luxury glamping tents

    Our custom designed boutique camping tents are spacious and fully furnished with excellent kitchens, comfortable bedrooms and shower rooms. They offer guests the freedom and flexibility of a self-drive holiday, the closeness to nature of a camping trip and the luxury and convenience of a beautiful
    self-catering unit.

    Farms and glamping routes

    With our first boutique camps opening up in the Klein Karoo – Cape Wine Lands – Overberg and the Garden Route, you can choose your ideal location or travel from one farm to another. You will see and enjoy one of the most beautiful part of the country and learn everything about the typical South African products that our farms produce.

    Philosophy

    Our business philosophy is strongly based on the foundation of sustainability. This is one of the reasons that we produce all AfriCamps tents and furniture in our own capacity in Atlantis Western Cape. Hiring and training staff from an area with a high unemployment rate we embarked on a journey to teach them sewing, woodwork, welding, painting, electrical skills and more. Most of them now have become exceptionally skilled employees with skills to use throughout their lives.

    Taking on this notion of education we aim for families to discover farm life and the serenity that can come from being in nature. At the same time educating kids about the animals on the farm, the fresh local produce and providing them with a closer look at their direct connection and impact to the world around them.

    Local host

    AfriCamps partners with local landowners and farmers to set up unique Boutique Camping experiences on their land. They proudly manage their AfriCamps location and are true ambassadors of the area where you are staying. Just spend some time with them and learn a thing of two from how they make a living of their farm.

    Typical South African produce

    With all the beautiful local produce that our country has to offer we like to show off a little bit. If it’s our wines, beautiful protea flowers, ostrich products, olives, game or karoo lamb we like you to experience it all with us. Please bear in mind that we don’t do touristy show farms but only the real deal!

    A connection with nature

    We aim for families to discover farm life and the serenity that can come from being in nature. At the same time educating kids about the animals on the farm, the fresh local produce and providing them with a closer look at their direct connection and impact to the world around them.

    Together with local partners!

    We believe that the best travel experiences are often those where you’ve managed to get up close with the landscape, the people and the food of the places you’ve visited. That’s why we have set up our boutique tented camps at a selection of authentic working farms and estates in the country. These landowners create unique outdoor experiences under luxurious canvas in partnership with us. Guests can experience life on a working farm, where play is unrestricted and kids can become little explorers.
