Experience this unique accommodation in Kommetjie at Slangkop Tented Camp, nestled in the Milkwood forest opposite Kommetjie beach, 40 minutes from Cape Town central. This is the perfect camp for hikers or anyone wanting to just get away from it all.
You lie back in your sleeping bag on a wonderfully comfy bed and, if you leave the tent flap open, watch drowsily as the rhythmic beam of the Slangkop lighthouse displays hypnotically across the solid canvas walls. Then you drift off into sleep to the never-ending accompaniment of the booming but also incredibly soothing symphony of waves breaking on the Kommetjie shoreline just 100m away.
The "tents" are permanent structures, with canvas interiors covered by a completely weatherproof sheeted roof. It's also themed to fit snugly into its environment, with its low, rounded design complementing the low, undulating coastal thicket vegetation of the Kommetjie area.
Slangkop, like all the camps, is designed on a "touch the Earth lightly" philosophy, with fully environmentally-friendly facilities. Restoration of the indigenous coastal milkwood forests in Kommetjie is an integral part of the camp, with the current exotic manitoka trees earmarked for gradual removal as the newly planted local vegetation becomes established.
One of the camp's special features is the innovative light fittings in the main communal kitchen area, fashioned from the vertebrae of a southern right whale that washed up dead on the shore directly opposite the site some years ago.
