If you want the close-to-nature freedom of camping without the hassle of lugging all the gear, then The Storytellers has the answer for you! Our three glamping units - luxury safari tents, furnished with double beds, private bathrooms and a their own kitchens - get you in to the bush without breaking a sweat.
Our three units are Dassie Den; Porcupine Place; and Tortoise Terrace.
Dassie Den and Porcupine Place are the two larger units. Dassie Den has a bath as well as a shower and boasts some of the best views on the farm. Porcupine Place only has a shower and is our most secluded unit. Both Dassie Den and Porcupine Place have solar powered lights; gas fridges and stoves; and wood-burning "donkeys" (boilers) for hot water.
Tortoise Terrace is the smallest of the three units, but can still cater for up to four people. This unit has a shower only; solar lights; and gas for the stove, fridge and hot water geyser.
On request, we are also able to install a pop-up dome tent at any of the three units. This tent comes furnished with a double sleeper couch and can cater for two additional people.
The Storytellers is conveniently situated near several hiking trails as well as some world-renowned bouldering (climbing) areas. For those wanting relaxation, a stroll to the waterfall or to the kloof at the back of the farm may be in order. For those looking for more excitement, there are several options for trail running, abseiling, sport climbing, bouldering and mountain biking.
The farm boasts several swimming options - the dam, the river or the waterfall - and those hot summer nights can be be spent lingering around a fire watching the countless stars go by overhead.
