The Tentickle team is proud to reveal that our tents now form a part of a brand-new eco-tourism destination in the heart of the Cape Winelands near Cape Town in South Africa. The thing that makes us most excited about this project, is that the client’s operational ethos aligned so beautifully with our own.
How Boschendal Drives Sustainability
Boschendal Wine Estate recognised early on that one cannot have a business without sustainability built into the heart of it. As such, they have worked hard to become pioneers of regenerative and sustainable agriculture and tourism, where robust thinking and unending commitment have been ploughed into building resilient and regenerative farming methods and lifestyle choices.
In short, at Boschendal the goal is to work with nature, not against it, and to create a viable working farm and incredible Cape Winelands tourism destination for all its guests, locals and communities.
This is why everything they do on the farm is rooted in sustainability, underpinned by a variety of vast operations, small-scale activities, long-term projects, and everyday choices we make as a business. This includes Camp Canoe – the brand-new luxury tented camp situated on a particularly beautiful peak of the Boschendal wine estate. Here, guests are invited to reconnect with nature and enjoy an invigorating sense of stillness in gorgeous accommodation units that merge seamlessly with their environment.
Why Tentickle Tents Are Perfect For Eco-Tourism Locations
The tents their team hand-picked for this location were selected from the Tentickle Explorer range, which has been designed with the requirements of the luxury camping market in mind. These incredibly spacious units benefit from top-tier tent technology and are very easy to adapt to unique location requirements.
The Boschendal team are fastidious about the safety of their guests, as well as the very sensitive environmental area of which they are fortunate enough to be the custodians, which is why they decided Tentickle was the way to go. The fact that the durable Teflon-coated stretch tent roofs are 100% waterproof, UV-resistant and optionally fire retardant put it at the top of their list.
Since the tents are located near water, it was also a boon that our Explorar range comes with rubber-coated mosquito netting to keep the mozzies at bay.
