AfriCamps at Kam’Bati
is situated on an Overberg farm about 20 km west of Swellendam. The Sonderend River and Breede River meet on the property and our 5 luxury Boutique Camping tents are located in a beautiful and quiet patch of forest close to the river.
AfriCamps at Kam’Bati is a nature lovers’ paradise and the perfect getaway for the adventurous family. There are canoeing, mountain biking and fishing facilities and there is a shared swimming pool for the children, while the picturesque town of Swellendam is only a short drive away.
Swellendam is not only the largest young berry growing area in the world, but is also bursting with heritage, culture and architecture. Visit the famous open-air Drostdy Museum or enjoy the view of the Dutch reformed church, one the best-known historical buildings of town. Perhaps you feel more like an exciting river rafting tour along the Breede River. On the fringe of the town you will find the Bontebok National Park and the Marloth Nature Reserve; nature parks that provide various possibilities for hiking, horse riding, and bird watching. Swellendam is also well known for its vibrant food culture, with plenty of restaurants offering everything from traditional farmers food to coffee shops serving delectable cakes and fine-dining experiences.
Lying at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, Swellendam is the perfect base from which to explore the Overberg Region and the surrounding wine lands. This includes Cape Agulhas, the southern most point of Africa and meeting point between the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean, and De Hoop Nature Reserve where you can hike, swim, mountain bike, quad bike and go bird watching or game viewing.
Our Boutique Camp can be reached from Cape Town in just over 2 hours which makes it the perfect weekend trip destination as well as a great stopover on the way to the Garden Route.

Both bedrooms are furnished with a queen size bed and have their own private entrance which allows maximum privacy. One of the bedrooms also contains an extra single bunk bed, so the tent will comfortably sleep a family of 5. Our tents are equipped with an air conditioning unit to keep you cool during those hot summer nights and a private bathroom with a hot shower cabin, wash basin and flushing toilet.
