CapeNature CEO Dr Razeena Omar says, “Many years ago CapeNature with a few industry partners led the glamping revolution with the award-winning eco-lodges at Gamkaberg Nature Reserve near Oudtshoorn. Today we welcome this new addition to our portfolio of glamping and camping options at CapeNature. The glamping tents are a unique way to enjoy beautiful starry nights and majestic mountain views. Each of the glamping units follow the entity’s commitment to touching the earth lightly, with minimal foundations and lightweight construction techniques involving locally produced and sustainable materials.”
The glamping sites are named after the Southern Afro- temperate Forest (the Southern Cape Forests) present at Grootvadersbosch. The tall, shady, multi-layered indigenous South African forest tree species are Yellowwood, Red alder, Stinkwood, Sequoia (“Si-koi-ja”) and Boekenhout.
Glamping makes for a private, comfortable experience whilst in the open spaces of nature, still leaving you with a rustic feel. Regular tents make way for a luxurious stay with attractive décor and your own fire pit to boot. Glamping is the new “lit” camping for those who are adventurous but enjoy their privacy and comfort.
Grootvadersbosch Nature Reserve now provides a variety of accommodation options on the reserve, from comfortable and well-equipped cabins to a range of camping styles, with basic plots to private and convenient glamping tents.
