Searching for AfriCamps Partners
Updated: Mar 9
Sustain is very pleased to announce that for the month of February we will be representing AfriCamps in searching for and identifying properties throughout KwaZulu-Natal that are suitable for their great 'glamping' (glamorous camping) product.
AfriCamps already offers a wonderful glamping experience in 8 unique destinations in South Africa, and is currently expanding into both KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.
They offer a global partnership model on the levels of: investment, revenue split and operations.
If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in developing an AfriCamps and operating a boutique camping experience on your game reserve or agricultural farm, please let me know.
Primary areas of interest:
Pongola Nature Reserve / Lake Jozini;
The focus criteria for site selection will include:
Areas that are commercially attractive from a tourism perspective and can generate a healthy occupancy rate;
Owners who can partly finance their own project (plus minus R800,000.00);
Owners who can manage and operate a hospitality business and accommodate AfriCamps on their property;
Interesting flora and fauna;
Interesting on-site and off-site activities at and around the destination;
Areas that are accessible for self-drive tourists.

AfriCamps will refurbish all the tents every 5 years;
Partner to provide R70,000/tent participation fee;
