AfriCamps at Pat Busch
Attention all nature lovers: This AfriCamps location is situated in Pat Busch Mountain Reserve. 2000 Hectares of spectacular mountain fynbos with streams, mountain dams, birdlife and various animals such as bucks, fallow deer, Nguni cows and even a very shy leopard. The reserve is also home to a rare Protea Flower that was thought extinct for almost 50 years and is now under protection of Cape Nature. Our glamping tents are tucked away in the Cape fynbos and look out over a folded green valley with the Langeberg as a gorgeous backdrop. We invite you to escape the hustle and bustle and come and explore this hidden valley together with your dearest friends and family. The possibilities on the property are endless and include several walking trails, good bird watching, fishing for bass and swimming and paddling in the farm dam. The sparkling nine-meter swimming pool, fringed by a rolling green lawn is also a welcomed addition at which to chill in the summer blaze.
The reserve forms part of the Klaasvoogds West foothills in the Langeberg Mountain between the towns of Robertson & Montagu. With over 160 years of history, Robertson has grown into one of the most attractive Cape Winelands towns, with Victorian buildings, jacaranda-lined streets and vineyards banked with beautiful roses. The Robertson Valley forms part of the Route 62, the longest wine route in the world and famous for its many wine festivals. There are also a big variety of attractions, activities and culinary delights on offer. Visit the Rialheim, a ceramic factory, where you can view and buy unique and fun handcrafted ceramic homeware. Take winetasting to a whole different level by taking the Viljoensdrift River Cruise including a gourmet picnic on the tranquil waters of the Breede River. Or meander your way up the Langeberg Mountain with the Montagu Tractor Trip and enjoy your traditional Potjiekos at an altitude of 1500m above sea level. Round off your day with a soothing massage at Rosendal Wellness Centre while gazing at the beauty of the vineyards.
Robertson is only a 2 hour drive from Cape Town and known as the western gateway to the Route 62 with easy access to exciting villages such as Montagu, McGregor and Bonnievale. Montagu, a beautiful Klein Karoo town, is famous for its hot springs as well as the many farm stalls and markets that offer exceptional food, wines & coffee. McGregor is a unique and alternative village away from the crowds where you can literally step back in time. The McGregor village is home to a vibrant community of artists and there are top-class galleries for you to explore. Also Bonnievale, well known for its cheese factories, is definately worth a visit.
