Highly Recommended Accommodation Swellendam area ~ Kam’Bati River Resort Afri Camps Self Catering Boutique Camping (Glamping:)
To get to this fantastic accommodation Swellendam experience, you only drive for 2 hours and 50 minutes (202 km) from Cape Town and 1 hour or 20 minutes (124 km) from Hermanus (See the route from Cape Town to Kam’Bati here) and you will find yourself on a most beautiful Overberg farm and the relaxing tranquility of the Kam’Bati River Resort on the Bree River. The stress-free drive, along the N2 between Botriver and Swellendam, is a lovely experience in itself. You can feel the rat-race hustle & bustle slipping out of your veins and relax into deep country-air breathing with the vistas of Canola fields, Blue Cranes, aimlessly ambling sheep, gracious wind turbines, rolling hills and majestic mountains. Kudos to whomever keeps this road in such an excellent condition. #RoadTrip #Adventure #Travel #KiddyFriendly #AnimalFriendly (Book your stay at Kam’Bati Afri Camps)
Kam’Bati is situated on an Overberg farm called Jubileeskraal, that is approximately 20km west of Swellendam. The Sonderendriver and Breede River meets on the property that is owned and managed by the Badenhorst Family. Jubileeskraal is a working farm where production of Barley, Weat, Canola and Corn takes place.
Kam’Bati River Resort offers Grassed Campsites with electricity and clean ablutions, Self-Catering Cabins and luxury Africamp Tents. The resort is very safe, clean and child friendly. The perfect place to spend your next holiday or breakaway weekend!
The Self-Catering Cabins cater for couples in our romantic 2 sleeper units, but also for families in our 4 sleeper 2 bedroom units. The cabins are situated on the edge of a beautiful dam which is a stone throw to the majestic breede river.
AfriCamps Forest opened it’s doors in August 2016. Five luxury Glamping tents have been built in a beautiful and quiet patch of forest close to the river.
The campsite are nestled peacefully under giant trees on the lush river banks with convenient ablution blocks. It is a wonderful family holiday and relaxation spot.
Africamps is all about boutique camping (Glamorous Camping or Glamping) on the most beautiful working farms and estates in South Africa. The first Africamp was established close to Oudtshoorn, the second one close to Swellendam, and the third one, scheduled for later this year, close to Stanford, Overberg, Western Cape. At all of these venues you will be welcomed by the landowners, learn about their farming business and experience the great outdoors and the earthy fabulousness of the Afri-Sexy permanent tents. Each camp at Kam’Bati has its own braai area, fully equipped kitchen, two double bedrooms (one with a mezzanine single bed above the double bed), double thick, extra luxurious mattresses (electric warm blankets for winter nights), luscious bedding, a wood burning fireplace in the open-plan lounge, kitchen and patio area. The Steampunk copper-pipe finishes in the bathrooms and kitchens are an inspiration! The large shower-head, instantly hot water at a good pressure and the shiny corrugated-iron large shower space beckons great virtuoso solos. The towels are soft and fluffy. Everything is simply divine! You can savor the seclusion of nature and a romantic escape, or a family outing and the merry chaos of funky friends! Make the most memorable birthday weekend ever. Connect and plug your children into nature – it will make their world a better place!
