Hey Pioneer Camping Experience

Choosing a spot in the wild to set up camp for the night is a big part of the appeal for the intrepid among us. But not everyone has the wherewithal – or the time – to acquire the necessary equipment.

This is where Hey Pioneer’s fleet of elegant bell tents comes in. Once you’ve chosen an ideal venue, the tents will be delivered to the site and pitched on your behalf, along with all the creature comforts that define the luxury camping experience, such as bedding, linen and rugs. The bell tents come in various shapes and sizes, depending on your requirements, and there are also smaller range tents available for use as child-friendly or singles accommodation.

Furniture, braai equipment and basic camping gear will be provided, and a camp host will be on-hand for the duration of the event. When it’s time to depart, you can leave the task of packing up and clearing the camp site in the hands of Hey Pioneer’s capable support staff..

Choose Your Own Adventure

Whether you’re planning a festive event, or a private getaway with a small group of friends, pop-up camping grants you the freedom to choose your own ideal location.

That said, the site must meet certain requirements for a glamping set-up to be possible. Hey Pioneer can assist in the process of identifying a suitable venue, and can even perform a site inspection at your request (subject to additional charge, depending on the site location).

As well as being able to choose your own camping ground, there’s the option of having customised glamping experiences, where the campsite is styled according to a chosen theme. Catering and dining setups are also available, with long trestle tables, low tables, rugs, scatter cushions and picnic blankets available on request.

Camp sites can accommodate 12 to 40 people, with rates varying according to location, size and set-up. Additional camping equipment available for rent includes:

  • Basic or comprehensive field kitchen
  • Braai / cooking kit
  • Fire drums / pits
  • Outdoor chairs, tables and side tables
  • Tea & coffee station
  • Paraffin lanterns, metal lantern stands and globe string lights
  • Sundowner setup
