Five self-catering boutique glamping tents are situated on the enchanting Gowan Valley Guest Farm surrounded by rolling hills, endless fields, and the mighty Mpofana river. The Midlands Meander is popular for its relaxed atmosphere, picturesque countryside, and welcoming locals. Guests can experience stunning nature, thrilling adventure activities, inspiring South African history, local crafts, and delectable country-style food spots.

Our custom-made tents are fully furnished and equipped with a private kitchen, lounge, en-suite bathroom (with private shower and toilet), two bedrooms sleeping up to five guests in two extra-length queen-size beds, and an extra single bunk bed, an indoor fireplace, air-conditioning, and a wooden deck.
