5 spectacular glamping spots near Johannesburg

5 spectacular glamping spots near Johannesburg

If you are an avid camper, by now you’ve heard of glamping. For those who haven’t, glamping is ‘glamorous camping,’ which entails exactly what the name implies. Think of glamping as the halfway house between an expensive bush lodge and an inexpensive backpackers.

If you go glamping, you can expect luxury tents with facilities such as electrical power, lighting, real beds, and even private bathrooms, but still enjoy the smells and sounds of the bush and being in nature.

If you find the idea of falling asleep under a starry sky beside a campfire alluring but the thought of tossing and turning in a thin sleeping bag unappealing, then glamping is for you!

Have a look at five spectacular spots to go glamping near Joburg.

1. Bush Willow Tented Camp

Nestled in the Muldersdrift countryside, Bush Willow offers scenic sunsets, game viewing, and hiking up the Zwartkops Mountain. It’s a mere 30-minute drive from Joburg.

The camp is built in a section of the Glenburn Lodge and Spa, which is surrounded by indigenous bush on the Blaauwbank River.

The rustic tented accommodation features ten large walk-in tents, sleeping up to six people each. Accommodation includes an indoor shower, toilet, and a small kitchenette, as well as a communal braai area.

Their rates start R900 per night per tent for six people.

2. Jabula Bush Camp

Jabula Bush Camp is situated in the Dinokeng Big Five Game Reserve; close to the city but closer to nature to relax in the tranquil bushveld. Jabula Bush Camp has four glamping self-catering tents, each with a private splash pool and braai.

Sit on your private deck and sip on a sundowner while you listen to the sounds of the wildlife.

Each tent can sleep six people, four adults and two children, for R1900 per tent per night.

3. Sibani Lodge

Sibani Luxury Tents offer a true escape from the city: there is no wifi available and they use solar electrical supply which allows for some lighting and charging of cellphones, nothing else.

Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, and since there are no self-catering facilities, meals are provided.

In addition, each tent has its own open-air wood-fired hot tub, of which the first bag of wood is free, and additional wood is on site available for purchase.

Their rates start at R2100 for two people per night.
