A Unique 500m Word Labyrinth

Boutique Camping: A Family affair

Throughout the year

Few things surpass camping together as a family. At Malalapa at Die Letterhuis, alongside the riverbank, you can cop out of rushed city living by getting into your car with only a sleeping bag, something to eat and a suitcase and spend a night (or more) waking up to birdsong and eating under a star studded Karoo sky. If you are equipped you can bring your own gear and camp next to your private bathroom. Alternatively, we can supply everything you need-from tents to mattresses
