We spent a wonderful and peaceful night in the tent and like our other short stops during our week in the Netherlands, we just wish it lasted longer to fully experience the beauty of the Biesbosch area.
Fijne plek, prima tent en rustige omgeving. Bedden lagen goed en er is voldoende ruimte in de tent voor twee. Genoeg te doen in de omgeving en een goede uitvalsbasis om Rotterdam te bezoeken!!
Een heerlijke plek om te genieten vam de rust en de natuur. Wouter kwam langs om te vragen of alles naar de zin was en tips te geven over de omgeving. Hij raadde ons aan een kanotocht te maken en dat was ook helemaal top. Prettige accomodatie en vriendelijke verhuurders.
Tijdens onze ontdekkingsreis door Nederland ook een nachtje in een tent in de Biesbosch. Een chique tent met zalige bedden, een zonnig terras, een koelkast, verlichting, zalige dekbedden en Wouter die ons welkom heette. Top ervaring. Alleen de gedeelde douche en toiletten herinnerden aan het ouderwetse kamperen.
Als (voorheen) fervent kampeerders, met nu even wat minder tijd en energie, konden we geen betere keuze hebben gemaakt. De safaritent conbineert comfort (o.a. boxspring bedden, koelkastje, kledingkast, fijne stoelen en electriciteit!) met het 'buitenleven'. S avonds een kampvuurtje stoken en je eigen eten koken, maar zonder te hoeven slepen met spullen. Ideaal als je even in korte tijd tot rust wilt komen. Wouter en Jess zijn zeer gastvrij en behulpzaam. Hun kano is te huur als je er in de Biesbosch op uit wil trekken (aanrader!)
Me and my love, Monique had an amazing stay in the Biesbosch!
The facilities were much above my expectations and we felt very well taken care of by Wouter & Jes! We would highly recommend anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing time in the Biesbosch to rent a safari tent here. Every tent came complete with 2 comfortable beds (which we pushed together for a cozy double bed feeling ;-)), small kitchenette with everything you might need and even a toilet. Showers and toilets were also just a small 20 meter walk away from the tent. For a small extra fee Wouter set us up with gas pits and a BBQ.
A short walk away you find the beach and facilities for renting canoes & boats. We highly recommend taking a tour of the rivers surrounding the place...real jungle feeling!
