Dassie Den

Secluded glamping with a spectacular view of the cliffs

Sleeps 6. Recommended maximum four adults
An unmatched amphitheater view of the Rocklands cliffs, holding you like a bowl. If you feel so inclined you could spend the whole day, sitting back and watching the light shift on the rocks, and seeing nature’s own theatre unfold as all the birds and other creatures come to visit. You’re close to everything but yet it can feel like you’re completely alone. Here, wildness, natural beauty and privacy take precedent.

The accommodation itself features a stoneclad deck with rolldown blinds, a roofed but open eco-kitchen with full electric fridge and gas oven, and a bathroom featuring a restored Victorian tub and open shower. Windows onto the bush make you feel as if you are outdoors. There is also a large stone braai and firepit.

The sleeping areas are simple: a furnished safari with one room featuring a double bed and an adjoining room with two bunks. We have recently added a second safari tent, fully furnished with two single beds, tucked into the bush beneath a Yellowwood tree. This gives you proper privacy for two couples.

Dassie is partially off-grid, but does have hot water (by solar geyser augmented with wood burning boiler for rainy days), a gas cooker and solar lighting. There is a full-size electrical fridge plus plug points to charge devices.

Towels, linen and gas for cooking are supplied. There is one queen size bed in the main room, and then a set of two bunk beds in a separate room. The additional safari tent sleeps an extra two people in matching single beds, which can be pushed together to create a double. Dassie Den sleeps up to six people, but we generally recommend that you stick to four adults.

RATES FOR 2024: R1050 per night, with weekly and monthly discounts applicable to direct bookings only
