Arriving at the camp

When we arrived at Nguni Moon and it was almost dark but that didn’t stop our excitement. We love new and unique experiences and walking down the pathway felt like we were entering a secret tepee village. Nguni Moon is based on Jenny and Alex’s farm and it has its own entrance which is private with secure parking. Through out the camp there is a red Indian theme which really adds to the whole experience.

The Eagle Tepee

We stayed in the Eagle tepee, which is a favourite. One thing we didn’t realize is how spacious the tepee would actually be inside. The Eagle tepee had a queen bed and a double couch fitted quiet snug with all our stuff. Towels, water and bedding were provided and the tepee had electricity available inside so we could still charge our phones and electronics. Each tepee is slightly different – the Eagle, Raven and Sparrow Hawk have queen beds and Crow has two single beds. We had a bit of a rain storm the second night and our tepee was warm and it stayed completely waterproof and dry inside. With the bed and furniture inside the tepee it was more like we were staying in an upmarket backpackers than a tent. Gotta love glamping!

Kitchen with all the self catering essentials

The commune kitchen area provided everything we needed during our stay, right down to the last detail. All you need to bring is your food and your drinks. (There is a shared fridge available to keep to keep food and beers cold.) We cooked on a braai the first night and the second night Liza made her famous home cooked chicken curry dish on the gas stove. The shared lounge area is comfortable with a calming view of the dam. The small dam offers the perfect spot to just sit, get lost in your thoughts and enjoy the peace and quite. There is a path with two bathroom’s to the left of the kitchen area. The bathroom had hot showers, spacious and well lit through the night.

Around the camp fire

In the center of the camp is a cozy fire pit. This is a  great spot to sit on those chilly nights to roast marsh mellows, bond with friends or tell scary camp fire stories.  Everything you need to  make the camp fire is provided with enough wood to last well into the night.

A Dam view

There is a small dam next to the tepees which is perfect for swimming but not suitable for fishing. The dam has a small floating barge to float away with a sun downer or two. We were completely surrounded by nature, it was so quite that sometimes Liza and I found ourselves whispering because our voices sounded so loud. It was not the right time of year to take a swim but it was very tempting since the water is quite clean.

It’s a wrap

We found ourselves spending one morning lazing on a the camp hammocks just taking in our beautiful surroundings and spoke about how great it will be to return one day with a group of friends. Nguni Full Moon offered a great atmosphere and a perfect chilled weekend get away, destress and catch up on some time out. The Sunday morning we got up early and headed to Major Adventures in town to do a tour up Sani Pass into Lesotho which we can highly recommend.

    I’ve never experienced glamping. The more I read about it, the more I’m curious to experience one.
    Good to know that it completely protected you from rain storm. I wouldn’t have expected that in any tent type, camping accomodation!
    Getting to sleep under the stars in hammocks is such a great experience I believe.

    What a cool experience this must have been! Glamping is something I have always wanted to try together with my partner and this looks like the perfect way! Eagle Tepee looks great and there’s so much space inside, who would have thought that.. I really like the sense of community that is encouraged by using the community kitchen area, must be so fun to sit there altogether! I’ll show this to my partner, we might go there soon 🙂

    Wow! This looks really fun. I am not really an outdoor person but the idea of glamping interests me. I would love to try this someday. I enjoyed reading your post.

    Nguni Moon Tepee looks awesome! My kind of vacation! What I really like about this place is the common space and that you are allowed to cook and bring your own food. And if the day get to hot there is even a small dam to jump into! A great place to gather some friends and family over a weekend!

    This place looks so peaceful and seems like a good option for glamping. It’s so good to have a kitchen to yourself so that you can self-cater and cook what you like. I would love to sit around the cozy fire pit in chilly winters with my family and roast marsh mellows and indulge in some grilled food. The dam view looks very serene and its look like a great place to spend a weekend.

    I love the idea of sleeping in a tepee. I think I did this once in summer camp and had a blast. I think my most unique glamping experience was on a floating tent in Thailand in the middle of Cheow Lan lake. We had a personal kayak tied up out front and could kayak through the rainforest and could hear the gibbon families calling out to each other. Glamping is such a great way to explore nature. You have the experience of sleeping in a tent, but get to be on a comfortable bed. It’s the best of both worlds.

    Although I’m totally not into camping, I would give this a try. Look like a great experience. And it’s glamping, not camping 😉
