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.

Amy, Zack and Gar­land have, be­tween them, 1.4 mil­lion kilo­me­tres of over­land­ing
