4. Are Kids Allowed?

Though we welcome kids on our retreats, we are aware that in some cases that the campers do not make it a kids-friendly environment. We are therefore working on offering family retreats, where parents are welcome to come camping with their children in a more kids-friendlier environment. Please stay tuned to our website for future family retreat dates.

5. What Kind of Places Do We Camp in?

We look for places with great scenery, more of the essential needs (clean ablutions, plugs, water and safety). Our ideal camping spots normally have nearby activities to do, hiking, river rafting, quad biking, offroading , game viewing and more... We Like to go to places where you get to experience more of what nature has to offer. With the retreats we organise, we prefere not to go to places that have dangerouse animals, like snakes and reptiles. However, should you wish to have your own private retreat with us to those kinds of places, we are more than able to host you.

6. Are Our RetrEats Suitable for Couples?

Absolutely, we had couples enjoy a quite time away from the city joining us on our Retreats. We have activities that are suitable for both individuals, groups and couples. This is the perfect outing for that adventurous couple looking to do something different.

7. What about safety and security?

Well we are very selective about the campsites we choose, as security is a priority, we are not willing to compromise. We choose campsites that have in-house security patrolling 24/7, not only to ensure safety against intruders, but also against fellow campers as well. Campers will be notified on trip details if the campsite has roaming animals or not, so you can perpare yourself.

For additional peace of mind, we ourselves see to it that campers' safety is guaranteed and we will go through additional messures to ensure that.

8. What Kind of Food Do You Offer?

Our experienced chefs will draw up a menu that would be suited for most people, if you have a particular menu you would like to have on your private group retreat, you are welcome to request the chef to cook it for you. We try not to serve you normal traditional food, but to give you entire chef experience. You are also welcome to braai or cook your "potjie kos" if you need to.

We normally go out for weekend long trips, Friday - Sunday (2 nights & 3 days) camping. But we are able to offer customized trips with the duration you require. This will obviously affect your price.
