What to consider when booking a glamping site

At Koesterfontein Glamping Farm, we take our glamping very seriously. We love that it combines all the fun of camping with the comfort of a hotel. Most of all, we want you to have the best experience with Koesterfontein Glamping Farm and glamping in general. And now that you know what glamping is, we’d like to give you some tips and tricks on what to look for when booking a glamping site.

What is glamping?
Where you will be sleeping: Well-maintained, semi-permanent or permanent structure. Sometimes glamping accommodations can be very creative like treehouses or igloos.
Nature: Less creepy crawlies. You are in nature after all. Or effective methods to deal with them.
What you will be sleeping on: A comfy bed with good quality linen. And no need to bring anything along.
Amenities: A bathroom, kitchen, and electricity! And maybe a hot tub or private pool?
Temperature: Air-conditioning or heaters to control the weather.
What you will eat: Many glamping sites are self-catering and most have great kitchens for this purpose or great restaurants close by.

What Glamping is not?
Where you will be sleeping: A leaky tent.
Nature: Loads of creepy crawlies and a lack of methods to deal with them.
What you will be sleeping on: Doesn’t matter but you need to bring your own bedding.
Amenities: A hole in the ground, cooler box, and candlelight (this one is okay if it’s to be romantic).
Temperature: Control the weather? Mother Nature is in control now!
What you will eat: Hot dogs or barbeque? Or something you can cook over an open fire.
So, don’t just settle for any old glamping site. Make sure you get the best of what the glamping industry has to offer. We look forward to exceeding your expectations at Koesterfontein Glamping Farm.
