Western Cape Tented Camps … before you shake your head at the thought of having to slum it in a tent, tented camps are anything but the camping holiday that first comes to mind.
Many have solid furniture, feather duvets, hot running water and electricity. Most have en suite bathrooms and kitchens, and some even have the odd plunge pool.
