Bushbuck Camp. Self-Catering Tented Accommodation in Sedgefield, Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa. Experience tranquility and privacy in nature on the Garden Route. A nature lover’s retreat with birds and More bushbuck coming down to the water's edge to drink. Nestled in amongst the milkwood trees, the bushtent sleeps a max of 4 people, it comprises of a main room with a double bed and a smaller room with 2 bunkbeds. It has adjoining toilet and shower facilities and a fully equipped kitchen. An outside braai /barbeque area on the deck is also right next to the kitchen. Situated on a remote lake, which you mostly have to yourself, take the paddleboat out and toast the sun sinking over the mountains with a sundowner as the fish skip across the water. Take a deep breath and let the beauty of the surroundings settle over you. Pack a lunch and take the canoes exploring up the 2 river systems that feed the vlei, watch out for the bright flashing colors of the Knysna Loerie and the multitude of other birds that are found in this exquisite Eco-system. Slow Time. Being located in Sedgefield, time has officially been slowed down for your holiday, so take advantage of it and explore the only nationally declared Slow Town in the world. The river mouth is a stunning place to enjoy the beauty of the lagoon meeting the sea and a walk around the island a must. On Saturday mornings, the Farmers Market is famous across the country for its amazing variety of authentic home crafted goods and special farmer’s breakfast. Other Activities: 5 Min away, Cloud Nine offers some of the most scenic paragliding in the country. Gerickes point, 10 min away, is a stunning beach, with safe swimming, excellent surfing and beautiful walks on the low tide. Myoli Beach, 10 min away, is fast becoming a widely recognized Kitesurfing paradise with the guys from the PilePile Bar located right there on Myoli Beach creating the whole kitesurfing vibe and making it a really interesting spot to visit, grab something to eat or have a sundowner.
