Situated just north of the Hex River Pass between De Doorns and Touws River on the popular Karoo 1 Farm Estate, it’s a two-hour drive from Cape Town. The narrow valley stretches along the N1 from Worcester to Touws River, with De Doorns, South Africa’s leading table grape-growing region, at the centre.

The tents sleep up to five guests each and are all dog friendly. Each tent has a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious private bathroom with large rain shower and two bedrooms.

They also have their own outdoor wood-fired hot tub and indoor fireplace and electric blankets on the beds, perfect for winter glamping. The camp is a nature lover’s paradise with its stunning natural rock pool, hiking trails and MTB routes across the beautiful landscape.

On the farm, mountain bikers can choose between the 13 km Blue Route trail, the 25 km Red Route trail, the 4.5 km Green Route trail and the 10 km Orange Route trail. All trails start and end at the hotel and are open all year-round.
