South Africa: Tented Ad­ven­tures

Tourism Tattler - - CONTENTS -

Com­mited to low im­pact en­vi­ron­men­tal and eco-friendly ac­com­mo­da­tion, Tented Ad­ven­tures' Pi­lanes­berg Na­tional Park Sa­fari Camp, and Pre­to­riuskop Rest Camp in the Kruger Na­tional Park are per­fectly po­si­tioned with min­i­mal per­ma­nent struc­tures within their re­spec­tive camp­grounds.

The ‘Glamp­ing' ex­pe­ri­ence that Tented Ad­ven­tures of­fers, com­prises of snug twin-beds or large queen bed ac­com­mo­da­tion in sturdy can­vas con­structed tents. Ablu­tions are close to the site and house all the ne­ces­si­ties. Each camp site only has around 10 tents, mak­ing it unique and al­low­ing a com­fort­able in­ti­mate and per­son­alised ex­pe­ri­ence.

Guests will en­joy a camp fire braai din­ner cater­ing for all di­etary re­quire­ments, as well as full break­fast the next morn­ing. Both meals are pre­pared by the camp host who is al­ways on site and guests have the added ben­e­fit of staff who see all vis­i­tors as part of the fam­ily.

Both Tented Ad­ven­tures sites are housed within greater camp sites and of­fer ad­di­tional fa­cil­i­ties. Swimming pools, play ar­eas, restau­rant and bar which are far enough not to spoil the ex­pe­ri­ence, but close enough for com­fort and ease.

In­cluded in the stay are the early morn­ing and late af­ter­noon open ve­hi­cle game drives with the knowl­edge­able sa­fari guides well equipped and in­formed to help spot game, as well as ed­u­cate while tak­ing guests back to the ba­sics of the bush. In-be­tween hours can be spent re­lax­ing, sleep­ing, en­joy­ing the sur­round­ings and gen­er­ally in­dulging in the bush senses.

And ‘Glamp­ing' doesn't mean you have to be an ex­pe­ri­enced camper. You don't have to pitch your own tent, rough a rainy night or suf­fer back­ache from sleep­ing on the hard ground. You can still en­joy all the ben­e­fits of a luxury African sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence, while min­i­miz­ing your im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment.
