Trip Summary

Spend 2-nights at Africamps Klein Karoo, Located only a 10 minutes’ drive from Oudtshoorn centre, in the middle of a pristine Karoo landscape with direct views of the Swartberg Mountains, AfriCamps Klein Karoo offers you the perfect backdrop to relax.

Set on one of the biggest working Ostrich farms in Southern Africa, this AfriCamps location is one to experience. (Don’t miss the authentic ostrich tour if you want to see these amazing creatures up close.) A large portion of the farm has been made available to a wide variety of free-roaming game and the popular ostrich tour is a short drive away on the same property. Among the free-roaming game you will find 12  luxury boutique camping tents positioned around a big water dam.  Located just off the Garden Route, about an hour north of George, this farm makes the perfect mid-way stop between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. Oudtshoorn has something for everyone in the family, explore the famous Cango Caves, take a drive through the scenic Swartberg Mountain pass, or embrace local culture at one of the many festivals that run throughout the year. Also, take a stroll through the lively centre of this friendly town to experience its many nice restaurants and coffee shops.

AfriCamps tents consist of a spacious open plan lounge area with a comfortable couch and a fully equipped kitchen. The dining room area has a solid wooden table with enough seating for 5 people. For winter months the fireplace will be the perfect way to warm up the tent, bringing in an intimate setting for you and your love ones. Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen size bed and have their own private entrance which allows maximum privacy. One of the bedrooms also contains an extra single bunk bed, so the tent will comfortably sleep a family of 5. Our tents are equipped with an air conditioning unit to keep you cool during those hot summer nights and a private bathroom with a hot shower cabin, washbasin and flushing toilet. Three of the tents now offer a private wood-fired hot tub where you can take in the breathtaking view while listening to the crackle of fire under the African sky. A wood-fired hot tub is the purest form of relaxation and enjoying the outdoors, ideal for those starry winter nights. With all the comfort of a permanent structure – proper furniture, bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a solid wooden floor – they still preserve the romance and atmosphere of staying in a tent.
