Africamps at Doolhof Wine Estate
  • Wellington, South Africa

AfriCamps at Doolhof is located within the award-winning Doolhof Wine Estate, a short drive from the picturesque town of Wellington and only 50 minutes from Cape Town.

Located beneath the historic Bainskloof Pass at the foothills of the Groenberg Mountain Range, our six AfriCamps boutique glamping tents are surrounded by stunning nature. With the vineyards behind you, the glorious mountain views in front of you, and the soothing Kromme River sounds filling the air, you are in for a peaceful retreat, best enjoyed from the private outdoor wood-fired hot tub right next to your tent.

Activities on the estate include a 5 km vineyard hike, the river walk that leads you all along the Kromme River, mountain biking trails that start on the property, a kids mountain bike trail, the tasting room where you can sample some of the estate’s award-winning wines along with a platter or lunch and, of course, the outdoor wood-fired hot tub next to your tent. You can enjoy a selection of spa treatments from the comfort and privacy of your own tent, but please note, prior booking is required. Off the property, explore the surrounding area’s popular mountain biking trails, hiking trails in the Limietberg Nature Reserve, horse riding, touring between various Wellington wine farms and distilleries, and world-class golf courses.

Your stay at AfriCamps at Doolhof is not complete without a visit to the tasting room where you will uncover the secrets behind Doolhof’s award-winning wines. Two white varietals (Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay) and a substantial number of reds are grown on the estate. They include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz. The white varietals are planted on the eastern slopes of the Groenberg, allowing the grapes cooler days and less direct sunlight. Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting and take a few bottles home as a reminder of your winelands experience.
