With all the stresses of today (and yes, we know there’s a lot of them), Roadtrippers Travel are here to remind you that one of the best remedies for stress is to get out into nature and sleep under the stars. The best part about it is you don’t even have to rough it out, our Glamping camp sites are set to really WOW you! With so many Glamping trips on offer, it may be hard to choose, which is why we’re delving a little deeper into telling you all about some of the campsites (or should we say ‘glampsites’?) we’re exploring this year.
1. Harties Dam
The ideal getaway for those who are looking to get away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, enjoy big open spaces, fresh air and the ultimate views of Harties Dam! Only a 40-minute drive from Johannesburg city, it’s not so close yet just far enough (if you’re a Joburger), to be counted as a holiday! What can you expect? A weekend filled with activities, camp stories, an epic boat cruise through the dam, meeting some pretty cool people and your very own private chef! Take a boat cruise through the dam with your besties while sipping on some bubbly whilst enjoying great conversation – it’s such a vibe!
Experience Magaliesberg by taking in panoramic views from the Harties Cableway! The fun doesn’t just start when you’re on the cable car, here, it’s a case of the journey is just as fun as the destination! Venture to the top of the mountain and literally feel like you’re on top of the world. You can enjoy a light meal or even a cocktail or two at the top, whilst taking in some of the very best views our country has to offer!
We’re sure you don’t need much more convincing…
Serenely situated in the scenic mountainous setting in the Limpopo Province, less than a 3-hour drive from Pretoria. Be at peace while you are able to wander and explore the area, walk through the forests and hike along the river while taking in some of the most magnificent birdlife, with a chance of spotting the protected and rare Samango monkeys!
Roadtrippers Travel ensure that all facilities needed during a Glamping experience are of a high quality, such as the ablution facilities and electrical outlets. Our camp is set in an oasis of tranquility and peace. This trip activities are perfect for the adventurous at heart! Zip-line through the luscious canopies at Magoebaskloof Canopy Tours, who needs a room with a view when you can literally soar through the skies to take in what’s around you? It’s a 2.5-hour Jane & Tarzan style adventure! We’ve also got you covered on the ground… or should we say on water? Go gecko-tubing through the Great Letaba River, exploring crystal clear waters, breathtaking views whilst you venture through some white-water rapids.
3. Panorama Chalets
Perfectly situated on the Mpumalanga Lowfeld Escarpment, with views over the Graskop Gorge, we guarantee that this camp site will take your breath away! Activities for this trip include exhilarating quad biking through scenic areas, tubing through the Sabie River, and tours through this truly magnificent area. Imagine being surrounded by forests and grasslands, waterfalls and rivers, mountains and cliffs, all in one place? Quit imagining, join us on our Glamping trip for your next local holiday!
During the Covid-19 pandemic, some may argue that glamping may be the best way to travel and experience different areas, whilst being able to maintain safe social distances out in the very best that nature has to offer… We’re sure you don’t need anymore convincing!
