Handpicked for you...

As glamping spots go, Prynnsberg’s classic canvas tented camp under a spectacular sandstone overhang is hard to beat – and a glorious excuse to round up best friends and head here for a heavenly weekend together. You can expect nothing less than eclectic safari romance from the owners Sue and Rick Melvill who have furnished each tent with iconic Melvill and Moon campaign furniture, signature Roorkhee chairs and super-comfortable beds. There’s nothing too shabby about this camping experience…

And when not lazing in the tent enjoying endless eastern Free State vistas or the chorus of birds, the deck under the overhang is the place to be. Warmed by a fire and traditional donkey boiler in early mornings and evenings, it’s the perfect venue for milestone celebrations and unforgettable parties. Enjoy an intimate lantern-lit dinner or throw a wildly bohemian party here – there’s no one for miles around.

What we love: The setting. The privacy. For now, not many know about it but it’s an easy drive from Joburg and is destined to become a hot-list destination, not only for birthdays but for weddings, christenings or renewing vows. St Saviours, the little sandstone church on the farm is close to the glamping site (drop us a line if you need to know more).

Need to know: Muizenberg-style bathing huts have steaming hot showers and loos – or you can choose to bath on the open-air bath platform, lit with twinkling fairy lights and solar lanterns at night. This is a self-catering camp, but anything’s possible here so let us know what you have in mind.

: it’s close enough to Lesotho for 4×4 adventurers who want to explore further, but bicycle polo, cricket, clay pigeon shooting and even hot-air ballooning can be planned if arranged in advance.

The glamping site is on Prynnsberg Estate, and the historic Prynnsberg Manor, built in the 1880s, is now fully restored and available for exclusive-use bookings.
