Pop-up Camping on the West Coast
COUNTRY LIFE has always inspired our travel itch and your September issue was no exception with the Nieuwoudtville to Clanwilliam feature.
As laid-back Capetonians, we always leave things to the last minute so were delighted when we found a vacancy with Remote Locations. A comfortable and well-thoughtout pop-up camp at Zevenputs Private Nature Reserve just north of Lambert’s Bay. Sitting in the West Coast sunshine outside our spacious en suite tent (with real beds and cosy duvets), I was compelled to write to you.
The seals, birds and sense of well-being more than made up for the disappointing flower season. The nine private tents are within 10 metres of the breaking waves, and the air does not get much fresher than this. The night sky was vast above our heads as we sat around the camp fire with a three-course dinner. The mussels were picked off the rocks less than an hour before.
