Witzenberg Base Camp is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, located on our lifestyle farm 4.5 km from Tulbagh. The camp was built with 100% recycled materials and is equipped with 12 volt solar lighting system, USB port and on demand gas geyser.
There are no plugins for electrical appliances. This is a classic glamping experience. Kick back after a day of mountain biking in peace and tranquility, surrounded by the sounds of nature and panoramic view of the magnificent valley.

The space
The outdoor kitchen is fully equipped for self catering with a portable braai and firewood, 2 burner gas hotplate and a 47 L fridge/freezer 12 volt cooler. Basic amenities such as tea, coffee, rusks, sugar, artificial creamer, salt, pepper, dish soap, olive oil and essential toiletries are provided. The unique and private 3 piece bathroom has a fabulous rain shower with a lovely view of the surrounding mountains. Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep on a queen size bed with quality linens. An extra duvet for cool nights and outdoor wraps are stored in the plastic bin which also serves as a luggage stand.

Guest access
Guests have the entire camp to themselves. There is a lovely over sized hammock to easily setup and transform the outdoor kitchen into a lazy lounge area sheltered from the wind and sun. Adult gatherings of up to six people are very welcome but no overnight stays or noise past 11pm please,

Other things to note
Please be sure to follow the written directions to our farm which you have access to after your booking is confirmed. The GPS and pin drop are misleading and will get you lost every time. We are very easy to find
If you plan to self-cater, the local SPAR closes at 7 pm. Pets are welcome upon approval of the host.

Greetings. My husband and I are retired and live off the grid on a small farm in sunny South Africa. I enjoy gardening and preserving fresh fruits and vegetables from my garden. We are blessed with 7 children between us and 7 grandchildren to date. Our 2 Labrador Retreivers, Elsa and Lizzy, give us a lot of joy. We love farm life and the outdoors. We are dedicated DIYers and enjoy developing and working on projects together. We also enjoy cycling and adventure holidays. Our family and friends are scattered throughout Canada, South Africa, the US and Australia. My husband says I'm addicted to vacuuming and that our house "shines like a wet bottle in moonlight". I couldn't live without a good vacuum, a knife sharpener, a comfy mattress, warm socks and morning coffee. :-)
