Nestled within indigenous Milkwoods, situated a mere 100m from the sea, Slangkop is the perfect location for a traveller continuing their travels after exploring the city of Cape Town (and staying with us of course!). This luxurious tented campsite really is a “Hidden Gem” with not even many of the locals being aware of it. We think it is a beautiful spot to come and relax, braai and have sundowners while watching the sun sink into the Atlantic Ocean.
There are 6 tents at the campsite, with canvas interiors and all covered by a completely waterproof sheeted roof. Tents are all equipped with 2 single beds with mattresses – making it more of a “glamping” than camping experience. All of the tents overlook the ocean, some with more spectacular views that others.
The most breathtaking view however HAS to be the view from the outdoor shower – we can’t think of a better way to start the day. You are hidden from people taking a walk on the beach by the surrounding bushes but you are still able to close the shutters if you feel a little exposed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the camping necessities, so there is no need to bring anything other than the food you would like to cook during your stay, as you are not able to purchase this at the camp. Whale bones have been used as lights continuing the Marine Theme that flows through the campsite.
An undercover braai area is also attached to the side of the kitchen – so don’t forget your firewood!
Booking the entire campsite would be ideal for a group of people travelling together – This has been made doable by the camps extremely affordable rates.

Situated on the edge of the quaint village of Kommetjie, you really do get a special blend of beach, mountain, sea, nature and surf during your stay. Slangkop Lighthouse also helps to make the area picture perfect.
Five big wave breaks are found within a 7km radius of the campsite and surfers from around the world travel here to display their skills and dazzle the passers by. Outer Kom can be seen from the rocks in front of the camp, a world class reef break when conditions are right. 365 Reef is just South of the lighthouse and gets its name from the fact that it supposedly has swell 365 days a year.
* Please note this is NOT a good spot for an amateur surfer*
