Permanent river tents, camping made easy
Guests staying in our riverside permanent tents are usually fishing enthusiasts or have kids wanting a camping experience without all the extra heavy set up of lugging tents around with them. Ideal for new campers, overnight stops, quick weekend breakaways and generally if you love to camp.
Camping made easy in the Kalahari
What to expect in our tented camp
Our colonial canvas tents are permanently pitched right on the river edge and have easy river access.
The tents have straight sides and high tops making them high and spacious. Each tent is equipped with basic cutlery and crockery, including a braai, power kettle, table and chairs but is not equipped for self-catering therefore guests must bring the necessary with if they would like to do some proper camping cooking.
The ablution facility is close by, there are hot showers, clean toilets as well as baths for the ladies and children, and the men have hot showers and toilets with basins. These are the same ablutions that the campers use. Tents come equipped with linen but no towels.
Experience the Orange River
Closer to the river you cannot get unless you are floating on top of the water. You can enjoy swimming and exploring the shores, lie back and read a book or work on your tan.
How about going into the night with fishing and trying to catch that large Barbell or Carp. If fishing is not your thing sit around your crackling fire and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the Kalahari night.
