This winter we did not go into hibernating but rather into top gear with upgrades and renovations around the resort including a complete renovation of our glamping tents that now proudly boasts with wood fired hot tubs!


We have created pathways from our AfriCamps to the river that is lit with solar lights and offers a few lovely surprises along the way.


These include a very busy bird hide for guests to sit back and enjoy a wide variety of bird life. Currently our finches are in a mad rush to weave their nests and show them off to their partners. It’s truly a sight to be seen and it is impossible to leave the bird hide stressed as these soothing bird sounds relaxes and soothes the soul.


The start of the path is marked with a little outdoor library we call our ‘Little Book Exchange’. We encourage guests of all ages to come and exchange books here. This is a great way to encourage people to disconnect and indulge in some good literature.


The trail leads down to idyllic forest river bed and secret nooks and crannies that makes for the perfect picnic spots.


As part of our welcome pack to AfriCamp Glamping guests we include a scavenger hunt. This fun and easy hunt should be done with a parent on the forest walk and also includes collecting seeds, spotting animal tracks left in the sand and river mud and making memories. If you return your scavenger hunt form with goodies collected (we go and replant the seeds), you get a FREE round of putt-putt!


Our newly renovated AfriCamps luxury tents at Kam’Bati now boasts with extended decks that optimizes views and built in braais. The perfect place to watch the sun go down over the African horizon and Langeberg mountains. Other upgrades includes new flooring, bathroom fittings and wood fired hot tubs!

We have added a humble ‘Spekboom’ cutting with your welcome note and planting instructions as a gift from our garden to yours. Another way we are trying to make our world a little greener!


We have put a lot of energy and time into getting our camp sites to be green en environmentally friendly. Therefore we encourage our campers to recycle their waste and pack responsibly to lessen the environmental impact on the site.

Solar panels have been installed to lessen our electricity usage and lighten the load on the grid.

Another few esthetic green touches includes our very good looking gabion braais with up cycled car rims. We think it’s a very quirky twist.

We have just completed our best winter season to date with a 100% occupancy for all our self-catering units and farm houses on offer in the OENA group.


Come and sink into one of our wood fired hot tubs or simply soak up the golden sunset from one of our extended decks.

Camping season is officially open so if ‘fancy camping’ is not your thing we still offer the best river side sites next to the mighty Breede River. With all the fantastic upgrades to our sites we are sure you will enjoy your stay with us.

Life truly is more fun next to the camp fire at Kam’Bati River Resort!
