***Winner announced! Congratulations to Zasha De Langa who won this fabulous prize.
Flanked by verdant forests, craggy gorges and plunging valleys, the 300-kilometre-long Garden Route is arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the world and, unsurprisingly, a popular holiday destination for its irresistible year-round climate, spectacular surrounds and easy-breezy lifestyle.
One of the most authentic and rewarding ways to experience its peerless beauty is with an immersive stay in nature, which is where AfriCamps comes in. These custom-designed boutique tents are fully decked-out with everything you need for a blissful getaway: fully equipped kitchens, spacious outdoor decks, sumptuous queen-size beds, hot tubs (at select sites) and of course, breathtaking views.
Of the 11 AfriCamps across South Africa, three are located along the Garden Route – in Wilderness, Plettenberg Bay and Oudtshoorn – each of which offers its own charm and unbeatable setting that truly show off the diversity of the area.
AfriCamps at Oakhurst, Wilderness
Situated on one of the few working farms in the area, AfriCamps at Oakhurst (Wilderness) is home to eight boutique glamping tents scattered among fynbos plains and a beautiful indigenous forest, where grazing dairy cows dot the horizon. A waterfall hiking trail, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing, and canoeing sets the scene for a blissful country escape.
AfriCamps at Ingwe, Plettenberg Bay
AfriCamps at Ingwe (Plettenberg Bay), in the Crags, is home to six elevated tents with unhindered views of the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range and surrounding valleys, creating the perfect base for exploring Plettenberg Bay, Knysna and the Tsitsikamma National Park.
Offering something entirely different from the lushness of Plett and Wilderness, the 12 tents at AfriCamps Klein Karoo (Oudtshoorn) are set in a semidesert landscape. Positioned around a dam on a working ostrich farm, this arid location serves as a gateway to the Klein Karoo. The breathtaking Outeniqua pass links Oudtshoorn with the Garden Route, creating an exciting round trip. The iconic ostrich tour, Karoo drive and meerkat safari are must-dos at this unique location.
AfriCamps at Oakhurst, Wilderness
An endless array of adventures and activities await at and around each of the AfriCamps locations – from mountain-biking along dusty farm roads, hiking to waterfalls, swimming and canoeing in farm dams and rivers, to stargazing from a hot-tub at night and feeding farm animals – you’re sure to be rapt from dawn until dusk.
And now, you and four (very lucky) plus ones could embark on this dream getaway by simply entering our competition. An experience that lifetime memories are made of…
