intimate spaces and warm hospitality

We are small team of individuals with experience in eco-tourism management at the highest level in South Africa, which spans several decades. We have hosted guests from all corners of the globe, and from all walks of life. The concept of ‘pop-up camps’ is still in its infancy in South Africa, and as such our camps are evolving with each one completed. We are constantly improving on the design of our tents and every other aspect of our product, and are very excited at what lies ahead in our development pipeline.

Our objective is quite simple, and it is to get people into the wilderness, without compromising on too many home comforts, and to do so at an attractive price.


simple flavors, freshly prepared

Our meal times adapt to our surroundings, the season, and the activities our guests are likely to participate in. At camps where guests are likely to depart early for a days activities, returning late in the afternoon, we offer the option of a picnic basket to take along.

Our menus are designed to draw from local fresh produce where possible.

Sleep differently

the closest we’re going to get to sleeping under the stars.

Our tent comforts range from 92cm beds to stretchers and mattresses, and all are dressed in either cotton linen or sleeping bags, all dependent on the individual desires of our guests.

Luxury amenities in all tents include, soap, shower gel, conditioning shampoo, and hand & body lotion.

live differently

South Africa boasts an abundance of wilderness areas.

Pop-Up Camps seek out the jewels amongst South Africa’s authentic wilderness locations, and, inevitably, the finest locations are unavailable to traditional brick and mortar establishments.

Pop-up camps are particularly ‘light’ on the environment, couple this with our conscientious approach to camp location management, and the product is a unique experiential accommodation product.
