AfriCamps at White Elephant is located in the thriving Pongola Game Reserve on the shore of the 15000-hectare Lake Jozini. Spot 4 of the Big 5 on a land or water-based safari, and soak up the African sunset from your outdoor wood-fired hot tub with the Lebombo mountains in the backround. This camp provides an insightful look at conservation of Elephant and Black Rhino.
Our first camp in KwaZulu-Natal, AfriCamps at Gowan Valley is located in the heart of the Midlands Meander. Five tents overlook the grassy green hills this area is known for. A stroll around the farm among Nguni cows takes you to the mighty Mpofana river where you can enjoy fishing and swimming. Visit the popular nearby craft shops, restaurants, waterfalls and mountains, or just relax in your outdoor wood-fired hot tub. The midlands’ relaxed atmosphere and welcoming hospitality is something to experience.
The Cape Winelands’ first-ever glamping camp can be found beneath the historic Bainskloof Pass set within the award-winning Doolhof Wine Estate. Six tents are surrounded by beautiful vineyards, the peaceful Kromme River and the majestic Groenberg Mountains. Soak up the views from the outdoor wood-fired hot tub next to your tent or explore the farm’s vineyard hike, river walk, MTB trails and wine tasting room.
Experience a working dairy farm where cows are milked and calves fed daily, explore the farm on horseback or by mountain bike, hike to the farm’s own waterfall, try a spot of fishing or take out the canoe on one of the farm dams. Located in the heart of the Garden Route, AfriCamps at Oakhurst is close to all of Wilderness’ adventures and stunning beaches.
Located in The Crags, AfriCamps at Ingwe shows off with beautiful foresty views over rolling green hills. Here you can enjoy the views from a private outdoor wood-fired hot tub, take walks in the forest, view the fallow deer, impala and dairy cows and enjoy the numerous adventures of the Garden Route.
Located on one of Stanford’s leading wine and protea flower farms where glamping meets a hearty food experience.

The perfect destination for families with young children. Here you will find water slides, a putt-putt course, and loads of fun on the river. The kids love jumping into the river from a rope swing and biking through the camp for hours. Take out a canoe and row up and down the Breede River spotting birds or fishing.
This location takes you to the heart of the Cape Klein Karoo where guests will enjoy the peace, quiet and uniqueness of the area. Named after the Khoisan word ‘Land of thirst’, it is a dry and arid area, but this brings a unique beauty popular among travellers.
