AfriCamps at Gowan Valley

DestinationKwaZulu Natal

The Midlands Meander is popular for its relaxed atmosphere, picturesque countryside and welcoming people. Here you will experience a variety of stunning nature, adventure activities, South African history, local crafts and delectable country-style food spots. Balgowan is a farming area, well-loved for cycling and fishing in the many dams and streams. The area can see all four seasons in one day and you can expect some snow in surrounding areas during winter. The Midlands caters for a wide audience from foodies to adrenaline junkies, to serenity seekers – all in the beautiful and mystical surroundings.

Five brand new AfriCamps luxury tents are situated in our new camp at Gowan Valley Guest Farm. The farm is truly enchanting with its rolling green hills, endless fields, and mighty river. You will experience an ‘English countryside’ feeling, whilst you are welcomed with true South African hospitality. Your gracious hosts, Deanne, and Brett Bouwer farm Nguni Cattle and Golden Kiwis on the property as well as running their guest farm.

You can explore the farm during your stay while taking a 4km walk. Pass through indigenous forest to see the enormous 500-year-old Yellowwood tree, walk along the Mpofana River, see the newly planted kiwi fields and Nguni cattle. Take strolls through the gorgeous rose gardens on the farm and settle down at a grassy picnic spot next to the crystal clear river which flows strongly through the farm. Take a dip or try your luck and catch yellow tail or trout – strictly catch and release.

In surrounding areas visit the Howick and Karkloof falls, experience the Karkloof canopy tour, trek the Midlands on horseback, visit the Nelson Mandela Capture site and spend some time at the popular Piggly Wiggly for family fun and sumptuous meals.

Visitors to the area often come for weddings, to explore the Drakensberg Mountains or to play golf at some of the country’s most beautiful courses.
