About AfriCamps at Doolhof Wine Estate
AfriCamps is all about boutique glamping at the most beautiful working farms and estates in South Africa. AfriCamps at Doolhof is set within the award-winning Doolhof Wine Estate, between the historic Bainskloof Pass and the Groenberg Mountain Range in the picturesque Cape Winelands town of Wellington.
AfriCamps' six self-catering boutique glamping tents are surrounded by vineyards, mountain views and the peaceful Kromme River that makes its way through the farm. It's the perfect backdrop to admire from our outdoor wood-fired hot tubs.
Activities on the estate include a 5 km vineyard hike, river walk, mountain bike trails that start on the property, picnicking at various spots on the farm and the gorgeous wine tasting room where you can try some of the estate’s award-winning wines along with sumptuous lunch or platters. You can also enjoy a selection of spa treatments from the comfort and privacy of your own tent. The little glampers will love our kiddies mountain bike trail and finding their way through the labyrinth. Pre-order your AfriCamps breakfast basket or braai packs, packed with fresh local produce.
Explore the surrounding area’s popular mountain bike trails, hiking trails in the Limietberg Nature Reserve, horse riding, touring between various Wellington wine farms and distilleries as well as golf played on world-class golf courses.
Two white varietals, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and a substantial number of reds, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz are produced at Doolhof. The white varietals are planted on the eastern slopes of the Groenberg, which allow the grapes cooler days and less direct sunlight. A hike through our vineyards and a visit to the estate’s tasting room is a must for wine connoisseurs.
Each AfriCamps tent consists of an outdoor wood-fired hot tub or splash pool, a spacious open plan lounge area with a comfortable couch, a dining area with solid wooden table and seating for five guests, a fully-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms that comfortably sleeps five guests, and a bathroom complete with hot shower, flushing toilet and wash basin.
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 a single bunk bed. Our tents are equipped with air-conditioning and an indoor fireplace. Enjoy a braai on our spacious wooden decks and enjoy the views from the comfortable deck loungers.
