About Breede Bush Camp

Situated just outside Swellendam, Breede Bush Camp offers luxury tented accommodation on the Breede River banks. Private and secluded, our self-catering bush camp accommodation provides an ideal getaway for those who appreciate nature, or simply want to relax in tranquil surroundings.

In keeping with the secluded, yet comfortable feel of the camp, there is no electricity. Lighting is provided by solar-powered lights and battery operated lanterns, while the fridge and hot water geysers are gas-powered. Further ensuring the rustic atmosphere is the lack of cellphone reception, although you can pick up a signal 200 m from the camp. While the nearest shop is 30 km away, our isolated bush camp remains a safe, private destination.

The central lodge features an open-plan lounge and dining area with couches surrounding a stone fireplace. A large dining table is provided and a fully range of crockery, cutlery and glassware is stocked. The well-equipped kitchen features a large fridge, a gas burner and a double sink with hot water. All pots, pans and cooking implements are provided, including a braai grid and pots for cooking on an open fire. The bathroom includes a shower and basin with hot water, as well as a flush toilet. Another flush toilet is housed in a separate room. A wooden deck extends from the lodge and is ideal for relaxing, sundowners or outdoor meals.

Four semi-permanent tents have been pitched individually on raised wooden platforms overlooking the river. Each platform is surrounded by a reed enclosure ensuring privacy and shelter from the wind. Each tent contains twin single beds, a nightstand and battery operated lantern. Bedding is provided on request. Housed in a separate reed building, it features a flush toilet, a wash basin and hot-water shower. There is also an indoor bathroom with a shower and a toilet, as well as a separate toilet. The open-air fireplace is the ideal plate to enjoy a braai, cooking or late evenings around a blazing camp fire.

Breede Bush Camp offers a wealth of activities for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. Although 25 km of continuous private riverbank is available, the foot of the camp boasts a sheltered beach that allows for easy access to the river. The water is ideal for swimming, canoeing and fishing, while the surrounding area provides ample walking and bird-watching opportunities.

All I can say is location, location and location. One of the best spots I have ever been. Short walk down to the water and then you have your own beach next to the Breede. Will be going back 100%

The fun of camping, but with all the creature comforts!The highlights were the swimming and the evenings spent around the camp fire with ample fire wood supplied. Safe surroundings. As mom I really appreciated the fully equipped kitchen with every utensil we needed. Will certainly visit again.

We were very surprised how well set up the accommodation is - clean tents, the main area well stocked from the kitchen to more than enough wood etc. etc. The little extra touches that made you feel welcome- first aid kit, Panados, Tabbard,to a fully stocked jar with yummy home-made rusks. We would def recommend the camp to anyone.
