Look around: The hills of the Langeberg are crowded so closely together it’s as if they’re jostling for space. And you’re right in the middle of it all, coffee in hand, on the wooden deck of your safari tent. AfriCamps has hit upon a nice concept: They build trendy self-catering tented camps in established reserves and on guest farms. This one is in Pat Busch Mountain Reserve near Robertson. There’s white linen on the bed and fresh wildflowers in a vase on the table. There’s air conditioning for hot days and a fireplace and electric blankets for chilly evenings. At sunrise, pull on your hiking boots and explore the slopes on one of three trails of varying difficulty – there’s a hiking booklet in the tent. You can also paddle on the farm dam or swim in the pool. Spread your towel on the lawn and watch the sun as it moves through the sky. Make sure you’re back on that deck for sunset as the last rays disappear behind the mountains. Niggles? The work surface in the kitchen is miniscule. The only space for the drying rack, for example, is on the dining table. Rates: Five-sleeper tent from R1 140 per night for two people, plus R200 per extra person and R100 per extra child. Where? About 17 km north-east of Robertson on the Klaasvoogds West road. Contact: 063 170 4222; africamps.com What else?
