Theunis and Carol have developed a unique eco destination and the first seven of ten safari tents with private Jacuzzis have been completed and offer excellent alternative nature experiences to visitors.

The tented bush camp, however, comprises far more than merely tents and no comfort, money or effort has been spared in development. Each unit is very private with electricity and comprises of a spacious wooden sundeck of 60 m² that hangs over the cliffs and with beautiful vistas of the Waterberg and the meandering Nyl River far below in the valley. Three and two bedroom units with quality furniture and wooden doors are available and the sleeping area comprises some 30 m². The bedrooms of the 8 sleeper units open to a large covered sun deck living area with roll-up sides and spectacular views. Six sleeper units also have spacious open sundecks.

Each unit is private and has a thatched kitchen with all facilities, a jacuzzi, braai lapa and full bathroom and open-air showers and toilets on tiles in a separate thatched complex. When completed, the whole camp will cover 20 hectares and also offer central conference facilities.

There are also two smaller units - Wildesering and Stamvrug - with sundeck and Jacuzzis. Wildesering sleeps four in two 3, 5 X 3,5 meter tents on tiles, each with two beds, indoors shower, loo and wash basin, equipped kitchens, stove, fridge braai area, jacuzzi etc. Stamvrug sleeps two in a 3,5 x 3,5 meter tent on tiles with two beds, indoors shower, loo and wash basin, equipped kitchens, stove, fridge braai area, jacuzzi etc. (See own web page for Zyndrandt - Wildesering and Stamvrug on farmstay.co.za)
