New glamping sites at Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve near Swellendam

27 Sep 2021

These five new glamping tented sites are available for pre-bookings.

The campsite: Yellowwood, Red alder, Stinkwood, Sequoia (“Si-koi-ja”) and Boekenhout offers convenience and luxury with private ablution facilities and structured tents which are fully furnished.

Each of the glamping units follows CapeNature’s commitment to touching the earth lightly, with minimal foundations and lightweight construction techniques involving locally produced and sustainable materials. The glamping sites sleep 4 with two configurable canvas bedrooms and a fully fitted, albeit small kitchenette and private ablution facilities.

Our goal was to provide different and exciting accommodation products at the reserve, which now range from self-catering cottages, camping and glamping too.
