Splashy Fen Music Festival in the gorgeous Underberg in KZN is the most fun you can have on the Easter weekend, but I’ve found a way to make it a comfortable camping experience – glamping in the Harambee tented village.

This year was the 30th anniversary of the iconic Splashy Fen Music Festival, and thousands of happy campers enjoyed the great sounds and great vibes, in the picturesque setting of the Southern Drakensberg.

The entrance ticket to Splashy includes a spot on the general field to pitch your tent, but if you’re not a seasoned camper, then glamping might appeal to you more.

We opted for glamping… in the Harambee Tented Hotel: luxury camping with awesome food

The Harambee Hotel offered tented accommodation (double or twin beds) in A-frame tents you can stand up in, with a fabulous hot buffet breakfast freshly created daily by gourmet chefs.

And being able to wake up and grab some filter coffee as you open your eyes, makes the Harambee Hotel worth every cent.

Treat yourself to a luxurious camp while enjoying the music and festivities, knowing that you’ll have a warm bed back in camp with bedding and towels and power provided for the bedside lamp and charging your phone and cameras.

And most importantly for me, a hot shower (with no queues!) waits for you any time of day and night and toilets are provided exclusively for the camp.

The Swahili word Harambee, means “let us all pull together” and epitomises the collective of friends and family that has put the Harambee Hotel together. With intrepid explorers at the heart of Harambee Hotel, it is hard to tie them down to any single address or abode. As such there is no physical address where you can find us. Instead, Harambee Hotel can be found wherever the need to outspan and relax arises.
