Our spacious bell tents are pitched at De Bos Backpackers and camping, situated in the heart of Montagu, just 190km from Cape Town.
The large shaded campsite has fireplaces for barbecues, picnic tables, bathrooms with hot showers and clean toilets. Follow the farm road next to the river and you’ll find a large refreshing swimming pool and a playground for the children. The pecan nut farm has horses, ponies and donkeys – all very popular with the kids. There is an abundance of bird life as well free-roaming peacocks and guinea fowl.
The tents – Our canvas ‘bell tents’ are super-large and very accessible: they are practically the size of an average bedroom as their 5 meter diameter equates to almost 20m² of living space. Double doors open up for unobstructed views and easy access from two directions, and roll-up side-walls open up the tent entirely for those hot summer days. Each tent sleeps 2 adults and 2/3 kids in comfort.
Comfort items – Within the tent you’ll find a queen-sized mattress made up with crisp linen & fluffed pillows. Fresh towels & soap are supplied too. Additional ‘memory foam’ camping mattresses are provided for the kids but please bring sleeping bags & pillows for the extra guests.
Camping necessities – In your campsite you’ll find a large braai, grid, tongs, wood & firelighters. An ammo box with crockery and cutlery as well as washing-up necessities is available as we want you to travel light. A picnic table with seating is also at your disposal.
What to pack – A well-stocked cooler, toiletries & swimming towels. You can even bring your furry friend along! The farm is ideal for dogs as there is an abundance of space to play and lots of room for walks. Due to the size of the farm it’s unlikely that your animals will disturb other guests
