So, you want to get away from the rushed city life for a few days, but its winter and you’re super attached to the hot running water at home, your memory foam mattress and that new velvety soft throw you spoilt yourself with last month.
Perhaps you should consider glamping. Why not enjoy all the perks of being in the calming beauty and silence of the wilderness and the warm comforts of home at the same time? Take a look at four local spots you should take a glamping trip to this winter.
HillsNek Safari Camp, Amakhala Game Reserve
Located in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, the HillsNek Safari Camp is part of the greater Amakhala Game Reserve which is popular for its vast views and big 5 safari experiences as well as their 5-star lodges and luxury safari tents.
Marataba Treehouse, Limpopo
Nestled in the hills of Thabazimbi, Limpopo, the Marataba Safari Lodge has a variety of accommodation options on their reserve. Their glamping options included their stone-walled, tented mountain lodges as well as their newly added luxury treehouse. The treehouse is separate to all the other buildings offering privacy, a luxurious bathroom and even a martini deck boasting endless views of star-lit skies.
Glen Eden Ranch, Western Cape
Located in the small town of Montagu, the Glen Eden Ranch has a more rustic and traditional experience in store for glampers. Their sleep pods are made from refurbished gypsy wagons and can either accommodate 4 campers with a separated bathroom on site or you can opt for a private pod which contains a bathroom with a shower, a small kitchen and a deck with dining furniture.
Jackalberry Ridge, Mpumalanga
Enjoy a unique glamping and safari experience on the border of the Kruger National Park. Besides nature and wildlife, Jackalberry Ridge is popular for its luxury tents on stilts and other tented accommodation that feature a nearby swimming pool and campfire area.
