16 bedroom Self-Catering Cottage in Wilderness from R500 per person sharing
Garden Route Glamping at Oakhurst
“Dear Carene, Apologies for the delay in my response. We just returned to the UK on Sunday and I’m starting to catch up with everything after an amazing holiday. Thank you so much for all your assistance with booking and managing our booking with Oakhurst Africamps. We had the most wonderful stay and have already recommended it to friends in Cape Town. We went with my family (12 of us) and it was such a great place for the family to unwind and spend time together. The tents for all well equipped and very comfortable. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We apologized for moving kitchen crockery from one tent to the other so we could all eat together and said we would move it back as best as possible. They said it was no problem at all and encourage us to leave it as is. I was also worried about us all eating at one tent but the space was more than fine with a table inside and outside. It was such a great place for the kids who just ran freely. They made good use of the facilities – frequently visiting the bike track, doing the pony rides, swimming and the night walk. We also made a visit to the diary farm which was fascinating for all of us! We loved that we were close to the beach and Wilderness town but also felt away from the crowds. Overall a fantastic stay – wish we could go back more often! Thank you again for your assistance and I will definitely use you again when the time arises. Kind regards, Kate & Family. December 2019”
