Bush Willow Tented Camp – where camping and a bit of glamour meets

Not all of us are naturals when it comes to pitching tents, so imagine my delight when I came across Bush Willow Tented Camp’s glamping concept. No sleeping on the hard floor, no worries about cold showers and a little microwave for a quick fix. May I add that your beverages will always be cold, as the tent comes equipped with a fridge.

Bush Willow Tented Camp is situated in Muldersdrift only 30 minutes from both Johannesburg and Pretoria. The small tented camp is built on the Glenburn Lodge & Spa property which is surrounded by indigenous bush, at the foot of the Zwartkops Mountains. Two rivers meet on the property making it a wonderful venue for hiking, fishing and bird watching.

The camp’s ten large walk-in tents, sleep between four and six people each on single beds, which is ideal for family stays, especially now during the school holidays from 18 March to 5 April.

For adults who want to glamp in style, we recommend that you dress the tent up a bit for your occasion…no reason why your bed can’t have your own crisp white linen, crystal glasses and fluffy scatter cushions for your special weekend away. String a line of faerie lights or colourful bunting flags across your patio and feel like a million dollars.

The tents include hot indoor showers, its own toilet, bed lamps and lock up facilities. Meals can also be enjoyed in the thatched boma area where one can relax with a glass of wine while your fillet sizzles on the fire.

In addition, the tented camp can be booked exclusively by a group in conjunction with the full take-up of all the tents, accommodating up to 60 people.

Bush Willow Tented Camp which borders Glenburn and Kloofzicht Lodge are all within easy access (approx. 10km) from Maropeng  where Homo Naledi, a new species of human relative, has been discovered in a cave in The Cradle of Humankind, South Africa.

Special discounted winter rates, where guests have the option of ordering electric blankets  for the stay, are available from our website between May and August.
