If you’ve ever wanted to step into a setting that screams a Wes Anderson film and luxury camping, we know a place. The good news? You don’t even have to travel to Hollywood to get there.
Perched on a peak in the Boschendal Wine Estate, just 45-minutes outside of Cape Town lies a destination of cinematic and adventure seekers’ dreams. Its name even has a film-esque ring to it – Camp Canoe.
Seven luxury tents stand at the ready. Adventures and relaxation are ready for your indulgence. Everything at Camp Canoe is designed with your convenience in mind, pointed at the most important thing, wholesome energy.
Picking your stay:
Which kind of camper are you? Each tent has its own energy aptly titled for various kinds of explorers. Pick your tenergy (read, tent energy) between The Wanderer, The Botanist, The Zoologist, The Survivalist, The Entomologist, The Ornithologist, and of course, The Astronomer.
“Cook, soak, laze around, be still,” invites Camp Canoe, whose temporary tent havens spoil guests with all the amenities travellers need to relish in nature.
King bed or single beds? The choice is yours. A fireplace? We can hear the crackling now. A hammock and wooden decks? You’ve got to take in those views in utmost comfort. Then there are all the other treats to make your own treats, like a fully-equipt kitchen, braai, Smeg toaster (it is luxury camping after all), cooking utensils, and the option to pre-order picnics, braais and breakfast boxes.
What can you get up to?
You’ll only be staying in one of the most beautiful corners of the Western Cape, and the views over the Winelands alone are more than enough reason to visit. However, there are dime-a-dozen activities to look forward to including:
- Mountain biking, running and or hiking
- Horseback riding
- Farm and vineyard tours
- Star gaze in a hot tub or hammock
- Dam swimming
- Farm Shop and butchery adventures
- And of course, the option to laze around in nature’s splendour
What’s the catch?
Catches include: wanting to come back several times, your friends being envious, and making sure you secure your spot at the watering hole.
