Located in the Grabouw area, which is one of South Africa’s most scenic valleys, and among the picturesque wooded hills that borders Palmiet River, lies the Elgin Hills Luxury Tented Camp.
Right from the get-go, you will be amazed at the estate's pristine natural beauty, which boasts over seven kilometres of river frontage and an enchanting forest - akin to what you'd find in a children's classic.
Your accommodation, ensuite tents are platformed above the ground on a solid manmade base and are set amongst a canopy of indigenous trees. They are serviced by efficient staff who go out of their way to make you feel right at home. Look out yonder, from the comfort of your private deck, and view the game and beautiful scenery.
Nighttime at Elgin Hills is peaceful and quiet - fall asleep in comfort and silence on a spacious king-sized or double bed, in between soft linen sheets. Your tent has an en suite bathroom equipped with a shower, basin and toilet. A gas heater can be added to your tent at an additional cost to keep you warm on winter nights.
The camp has a large luxury lapa where you can relax comfortably on the timber sun deck and admire the views of the Palmiet River.
Amble down to the river below for a cruise on the barge. Sip on sundowners and bear witness to the most beautiful scenery on display. Mountaineers, outdoorsmen and keen walkers can hike along the eco-trails situated on the estate.
Adventurists can partake in numerous activities, include canoeing and rowing, mountain bike trails, 4×4 routes, kloofing, fishing, township tours, apple picking tours and hiking.
Intrepid explorers won't be left disappointed while visiting the nearby towns of Grabouw and Elgin; charming villages renowned for the production of apples, pears, plums, nectarines, not to mention fine wines available for sampling.
