Coral tree campsite

High in the Magoebaskloof mountains, is the ultimate escape.  Set on a plateau with endless vistas down into the valley below, Coral Tree Camp offers a classy alternative to the norm, boasting a bath with a view; a fireplace in the kitchen and a plunge pool with a wooden deck for long, lazy days.  All you need to do is pitch a tent, park the pooches and set yourself up for sundowners underneath the dramatic Coral Tree perched on the edge of the ledge.  Later, around the braai fire, you can gaze at a sky full of stars and listen to the cry of the bushbabies in the nearby forest.

This private camp (minimum 2 and maximum of 8) is only accessible with a 4×4 but for solitude and soul, it is worth the ride.  With solar powered lights and a donkey boiler for hot water, all your needs are catered for in a low-impact way.  If you are feeling energetic, you can go for a stroll along the river and watch the many butterflies and special birds along the route.  Or, amble through Elspeth Humphrey’s herb gardens for a sensory treat.  If you don’t feel like camping, Herb Cottage is a beautiful option.  Magoebaskloof has a large variety of attractions on offer, but I suspect that once you arrive at Coral Tree Camp, you won’t ever want to leave.
