I love camping.I hate packing up. I quite like the part when we get there and are making house and deciding where the kitchen is going to be, but you can keep the pack up and break down, thank you, i HATE it and i become all teenagery, hiding away so The Captain (who is something of a camping sergeant major) can’t give me something else to do. If you’re in any way like me then Hey Pioneer is your (and my) kind of camping company! Oh, and do we need to talk about the hideousness of blow up mattresses that always, always, always deflate in the night?!
Here’s how it works – if you live in the Western Cape and you’ve booked a campsite somewhere (and even if you haven’t since they have booked loads in advance too), they will go ahead and set things up for the ultimate glamping experience. In spacious, swanky tents, with REAL beds and with REAL linen. How fabulous is that?! The tents are old-school Davey Crockett style canvas bell tents (totally waterproof, don’t worry), they’re super spacious and were imported from the US where they take camping seriously. Each Hey Pioneer setup also comes with a kit that includes kitchen essentials and chairs and a table are also included in each package.
Here’s what Hey Pioneer are passionate about: taking the shlep out of camping (in a big way), helping people to unplug and get back to basics, sharing amazing, out of the way, hidden gem campsites, helping poeple create memories and providing opportunities to have unforgettable weekends, celebrations and together time. Did i mention taking the shlep out of camping?
I leave you with a pic of The Captain trying to put an already inflated mattress into an already erected tent while we were camping in Lesotho in 2008 – a classic no go – this is why i (and probably many of you) need Hey Pioneer saved in your holiday go to address book.
