Braai and Camping

Kogel Bay resort is a beautiful spot for summer camping trips

Spend some time outdoors

Hot summer sun, extra long days and warm nights, sun-kissed skin and time to spend with loved ones; summer in Cape Town is the ideal time to get outdoors and enjoy getting closer to the spectacular nature that is within minutes from the bustling city.

There’s nothing quite like spending a couple of nights at a camp site, enjoying the sun and sea by day and a braai with friends and family after the sun goes down before crawling into your tent for a night of sleeping under the stars. Cape Town has a number of fantastic camping sites where you can spend long days and nights relaxing in the summer.

Camping in Cape Town

Kogel Bay Resort is located just outside of Cape Town, nestled between Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els. This 20km scenic route provides perfect whale watching opportunities, is surrounded by natural indigenous fynbos and is largely untouched by development. The resort is protected from the summer south-easter by high mountains and the white sandy beach forms part of the Kogel Berg Biosphere Reserve.

Soetwater is another ideal camping spot for families and friends to spend summer weekends

Braai pits, picnic tables, camping and caravan sites and Slagkop towering above it all, Soetwater (translated to Sweetwater) is a popular destination for summer festivities. Local fishermen and crayfish divers can often be seen bobbing on the water just offshore and two tidal pools provide ample opportunity to cool down on hot days.

Museum of Gems & Jewellery

PRINS & PRINS DIAMONDS MUSEUM OF GEMS AND JEWELLERY

This unique museum project takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150 km journey to the surface, following the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along our coastline.  Learn about unique and rare gemstones, and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years.  The story about South Africa’s mineral wealth is told, not only for diamonds, but also for our Platinum and Gold deposits.

Buyel'Embo Village

This cultural village aims to remind us of our origin and serves as the reservoir for African knowledge pertaining to nature and traditions, giving us an opportunity to celebrate who we are through music (wonderful sounds from live bands) or from its’ distinct fineness of cuisine, topped up with African (local) arts and crafts.
