Just awesome!Drove all the way from Cape Town for two nights. It was awesome. Dropped the bags and walked straight to the waterfall for a swim. A beautiful park as your backyard and such a bargain. See you next year!

We enjoyed 3 nights here. Lively walks around, beautiful sunsets and fun heating your own water for showers. However, if it was windy the donkey didn't work very well. Overall a fun experience with our 8 year old who loved climbing all the rocks

We're glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the feedback about the donkey - we'll look into installing a windbreak.

About
Description
Glamping on an organic farm in the heart of Rocklands. If you're looking for a great break away from the city, or a place to call home while you explore a world-class bouldering area, this is the place for More you. We have taken all the fuss out of camping by constructing three roofed-over, luxury safari tents in the Agter Pakhuis Valley in the northern-most Cederberg, about 30km outside of Clanwilliam. All units are fully furnished, with ensuite bathroom and kitchen. Less
