Kohandè - Luxury Tents

Hello Journeyers!
So there are a full 15 Mondays left for the year! 15!!! That's it! Then the year has kissed us all goodbye!
Cedric organised us a getaway weekend so we could go and absorb the serenity of the bush. We have tight budgets and that's why we always look for very affordable, self catering places.
We went to Kohandèwhich is situated in the Leeuwkloof Valley Conservancy in Gauteng.
"Three luxury tents with on suite bathrooms provide accommodation for 2 adults each (sorry, no children allowed). A fully equipped kitchenette with fridge/freezer makes self catering a pleasure. Each tent is private with its own lovely panoramic view over the bushveld."
We hit the road after work and we were lucky enough to not hit too much traffic for that time on a Friday! We were welcomed by the friendly owner Dirk and his son. They showed us around our tent and of they went to leave us to enjoy a relaxed weekend. The weather was warm and springy and we even had our first rain Friday night.
There we were, sitting on the little stoep of our Tent enjoying the rain with a glass of wine, playing Monopoly and listening to the sounds of the bush. You can even hear the lions at night. Took us back to our holiday in Marloth Park! Bliss!







The next morning we slept in and when we woke up we got dressed and walked up to the pool. After we saw the pool and the view we were too excited about the great weather that we went straight down to the tent to pack a little picnic basket and went to go soak up some sun!







We had such a great time and were super relaxed when Sunday came rolling by! I just want to say thank you to Dirk and his son for their great hospitality! Hope to see this place again soon!

Have a blessed day everyone!

  2. Looks amazing. This is the kind of camping I would LOVE! I had too many years of bad camping experiences in a tiny tent that is an oven during the day and freezer at night :P

  4. This place looks awesome! Self-catering is always the option we take when it's available. We stayed in a place with a similar set-up while in Omaruru last year and had an awesome time :) xxx
