You and your group will then return back to your yurt camp to enjoy a locally sourced lunch spread, surrounded by the beauty of the conservancy.

Spend the next day exploring everything the conservancy has to offer, from hiking trails to swimming dams to views. The space is yours to explore… at your own pace.

About the Yurt Camp

Comprising of 3 private camping yurts, the off-the-grid site is perfect for small groups or families and offers guests an incredible private experience of the farm’s most iconic mountain – the Verraux Eagle cliff face. Positioned directly under the cliff where a mating pair of black eagles have nested for decades, the yurts offer a front-seat view of the conservancy’s breathtaking flora and fauna, often paired with beautiful sunset hues on the rock face.

The Camp is well-equipped for self catering with private kitchen cabins and bathroom facilities. The smaller tent-like Yurts provide a cosy camping experience, with the comfortable lounging in the cabins, open-aired fires, and spacious area of the site offering plenty of space for every member of the party.

The structures have been carefully built to have a minimum footprint on the environment, and with off-grid solar guests can expect to enjoy the simplicity and authenticity of the bush experience. The Yurt Camp provides a distinctive accommodation for those looking to share in nature, together.

Perfect private getaway

We had such a fantastic time, as a family, in this special location. Topped off by the beer brewing which was so fun. Cannot wait to do it again.

Beer, birds & beauty

A perfect combination of comfort, rustic feels and privacy. We just loved our time here and would highly recommend for friends looking to get away and disconnect to connect. What fun!
