"Glamping to the MAX!"

"What a wonderful place...as you sit on your porch overlooking the amazing tress and river, you find yourself becoming more tranquil as the hours pass by. I recommend using the canoes that are provided and exploring the river...what amazing sights! I will be seeing you very soon!Thanks for the hospitality and for a break that was definitely needed!"
"The absolute peace and quiet of the surround"

"Loved everything about the concept of Luxury Tent Camp except for a few niggly irritations eg no Egg Lifter in the Kitchen. The water bottle left on the kitchen Zinc too heavy for anybody (age 70 and 73) to lift off. The way it was you couldn't get a glass underneath to fill with water. It should stand on its own table and not on the only bit of working surface. No bowls should you want to make a salad."
"Best Glamping Experience"

"Where do I start?! This was my first Glamping experience and my word I will never go back to roughing it out! My partner and I went for my Birthday and it is exactly if not better than what I had anticipated.The farm is absolutely breathtaking, the tented camp is situated right on the river's edge - so you have views all day/night and is well equipped with everything that you would need and pet friendly! Although the mozzies are out in full force at night - so best come prepped for that (after all you are in their land).There is so much room for activities in this place - you can take out the canoe and go down the river, fishing if you into that kind of thing, clay pigeon shooting, take a leisurely walk around the naartjie plantation, the wildlife on the farm was nice addition too, some Zebra's, Wildebeest and of course some BUFFALO just chilling it out...We met Hannes who is the Farm Manager and had a lovely chat about the farm, from the Add to dictionary they growing to what fish is in the dam. I will definitely be back with my family and recommend this place to any one looking for a nature loving experience!"

"Great relaxed camping getaway"
14 Mar 2016
By Kim, South Africa
"We had lovely weekend here, just bit of a hiccup with getting in the gate to start but once we were settled in it was relaxation time. You get the camping feel without having to bring everything from the kitchen with you, nor do you have to pitch the tent, or walk to the toilet in the dark with a torch! So arriving in the dark wasn't a sore point, hehe. It gets a bit hot in the tent during the day, but they give you a nice misting fan which helped a lot, and don't forget to take mosquito repellent as you are next to a water source and they can ruin your 'Peaceful sleep' if you are unprepared like we were the first night. But after a spray on the second night they didn't bother us at all beside a little buzz in our ear... all part of camping out in the natural bush! Fire place is nicely set up with grid provided. It's about half way between Tulbagh and Riebeck Kasteel, so both places are great for a day trip out for wine/olive tasting, if you don't want to stay at camp. Oh and you also get the use of a private canoe, so you could go for a bird-watching paddle down the river, we definitely will next time!"

"Well what can one say. Definitelynothing like the photosposted on the internet. I Think they should loose the word "Luxury"when they advertise their tented camp. I wish I could add the photos I took especially of the inferior cooking utensils. Dirty pan, no egg lifter and an old Hart pot without any handles. Even the wine bottle opener was broken - it only had one handle. Only one wine glass for a tent that sleeps 4. No really - it was shocking - to say the least. The ONLY positives were the double bed and towels provided. The bed slept very comfortable and snowy white towels were soft and nice to use. One ply hard toilet paper for "luxury" - not in my vocabulary. No safety jackets provided for the canoe and no safety railings along the deck. The wooden deck also has not seen any sort of treatment in a long time. Definitely NOT Luxury. Our Trailer Tent and accessories are way superior..........."
