Location: South Africa

Reason why: The scent of green pine after a night spent sleeping under the stars will awaken your basic instincts.

Mood: Crawling out of your tent at sunrise, breathing deeply as you enjoy fresh-brewed coffee made over your gas cooker. You don’t need more than that.

Styling: Urban outdoor looks with lots of green hues, a fleece for those chiller moments, and jeans for your city trip to Cape Town.

 

Welcome to the ‘buitelug’!

Would you like to immerse yourself in the outdoors? Spend the night in a Tentsile tree tent, which you attach to three trees high above the ground. Thanks to the mosquito netting and the removable outer shell, you won’t be bothered by insects at night while you enjoy a priceless panorama.

Five original stays in South Africa

  1. Stay in an eco-conscious rondavel, a traditional, round straw-roofed Zulu hut made entirely from local materials.
  2. Spend the night in an authentic Airstream trailer atop a roof in Cape Town, with a view of Table Mountain.
  3. Wake up in the mornings eye to eye with a giraffe from your balcony in a treehouse in Kruger National Park.
  4. Stay in a hospitable homestay in a township and immerse yourself in local culture and life. Plus, you can support the entire community this way!
  5. Spend the night in a real train compartment, just 30 metres from the Indian Ocean, and enjoy the local seafood.
