More than 100 bird species have been identified on the reserve, ranging from Fish and Verreaux Eagles to Nightjars, Sugarbirds, Cuckoos, and Coucals. There are numerous trails to enjoy on the reserve varying in difficulty and ranging from three to five hours. Farm dam surrounded by fynbos.

AfriCamps at Pat Busch is situated in a lush hidden valley in Pat Busch Mountain Reserve just outside Robertson. Ten self-catering boutique glamping tents are tucked away in Cape fynbos and overlook a folded green valley with the Langeberg Mountains as a backdrop. The immensity and vastness of the mountains surrounding our tents in this reserve are quite extraordinary.

 

Guests can embrace the great outdoors from the comfort of our boutique glamping tents with all the creature comforts we love. Our tents can comfortably sleep up to five people in two bedrooms that share a spacious en suite bathroom with a rain shower. Each bedroom has an extra-length queen-size bed with crisp white linen and an electric blanket, with one also having a single bunk bed above it. There is also an air conditioner in the bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen includes a four-burner gas stove, microwave, fridge, toaster, and kettle. The open-plan living area has a lounge, indoor fireplace, and a dining table, and leads out onto a spacious elevated deck with a braai.

 

The possibilities on the property are endless and include various hiking and walking trails in the mountains, exploring the reserve’s wooded kloofs and streams, good bird watching, fishing for bass, swimming, and paddling in the farm dam. The sparkling nine-metre swimming pool, fringed by a rolling green lawn is also a welcomed addition at which to chill in the summer blaze.
