21st century travel is characterised by trends and dynamics that attract the traveller to experience getaways in new and exciting ways. One such exciting new trend goes by the name “Glamping”. Glamping, a portmanteau (a word blending the sounds and combining the meanings of two others) for glamorous and camping refers to new age camping characterised by the traveller getting a camping experience without setting up tents or cooking food on the fire. This luxurious form of travel is growing rapidly in interest, seeing over 200 000 average Google searches per month worldwide to date.
There are numerous types of Glamping experiences that visitors can indulge in. These vary in luxury, comfort and the kind of offering that is in each. Some forms of Glamping experiences are as follows. • Trailers • Farmhouses • Cabins • Domes • Lodges • Huts • Tents
Botlierskop, the luxury Western Cape Game Reserve offers visitors the unique ability to experience Glamping specifically from a lodge point of view. This is accentuated by the privacy and care that is given to each visitor ensuring a memorable stay. This impressive Glamping opportunity is made available to visitors through the stunning Luxury and Deluxe Tented Suites. As is the requirement for the visitor seeking tranquility and comfort, the Botlierskop Tented Suites offer air-conditioned suites which boast breath-taking mountain and river views.
