AfriCamps at Ingwe is situated in the Crags, a lush forest and Fynbos area embraced by the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay where you can experience all the Garden Route is so famous for. Our high elevated glamping tents boast outstanding views of rolling green hill tops surrounded by deep indigenous forested valleys and the Tsitsikamma Mountain Range. Three of the tents offer a private wood-fired hot tub where you can take in the breathtaking view while listening to the crackle of fire under the African sky. A wood-fired hot tub is the purest form of relaxation, ideal for those starry winter nights. AfriCamps at Ingwe is an outdoor adventurer and nature lover’s paradise. Visit one of the many popular attractions in the area, or just sit on the private deck of your tent and soak up the tranquil beauty and peaceful sounds of Ingwe’s forest. From Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Adrenaline activities and pristine beaches, AfriCamps at Ingwe is the perfect destination to experience it all.

Great glamping experience for the whole family to enjoy, would recommend this experience! Very comfortable and clean rooms, massive shower and enjoyed braaiing outside and still have the camping experience (but with nice clean, warm bed).

We'd loved the accomodation in the middle of the nature. The beautiful environment, everything was clean, the mealservice, the hottub and the bbq, the quietness. We've had a perfect stay at Africamps at Ingwe with two kids (2 years and 4 months).

Awesome family weekend away. The tents had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, the views magnificent and the Couch Potato trail such fun! The Nguni and Impala are lovely to see.. And the hot tubs just add that extra touch.

The tents are modern, the Hot Tub experience is super cool but what makes the difference is the staff and interaction with them. Lisa-Marie is one such example, she went above and beyond to help us settle in and guide us around the area. Also when we were stuck she made some phone calls and helped us. She also recommended us a beautiful cafe for Pies which we said we liked and boy were we amazed. Writing this review just to praise Lisa-Marie and more power to people like her.

We needed a place to stay at short notice as we couldn't get through to our booked accommodation because of a fire. Africamps at Ingwe welcomed us with an hour's notice and we were given the option of a tent with a hot tub. It is a beautiful place. The tents are distanced from each other for privacy and have decks overlooking indigenous forest. The accommodation is lovely with comfortable beds and even an indoor fireplace - glamping at its best. We saw buck on our walk to the swimming pool. It's a perfect getaway for families wanting some peace, with a lot to do in the area. The staff are wonderful and very welcoming. We would definitely recommend it.

We stayed for a couple of night and we loved it. The kids loved the hot tub and exploring the wooded area. Very peaceful. As "non campers" we enjoyed all the mod cons, super comfy beds and hot shower.

The location is perfect and not too far from the main road. From the deck you have beautiful views and the tent is situated in peaceful surroundings. We had everything we needed for our overnight stay.

We stayed three nights and got the last tent booking a month before. Everything is extremely clean and ordered. Beds were very comfy, wood at R50 was provided for the fire pit or the woodburner in the evening. Complimentary tea and coffee is a nice touch too. From here we went on the Africanyon trip which was great fun. Otherwise, quiet and a good chance to relax. There is a clean pool and a trail to follow. Otherwise the views from the tent are lovely and it will appeal to families who want to spend time away together. Well done to the host, Lisa-Marie. Great communication and assistance throughout.
