The Storytellers The Storytellers Experience the Rocklands wilderness

Dassie Den

Glamping on a deck with a spectacular view of the cliffs. Sleeps 4.

Uniquely situated with unparalleled views of the Rocklands cliffs, Dassie Den includes a fully furnished luxury tent with art deco dresser, a covered eco-kitchen and dining area, comfortable reclining chairs, and a bathroom featuring a restored Victorian tub. There is also a large stone braai and firepit.

Dassie is partially off-grid, but does have hot water (by wood burning "donkey"), a gas cooker and solar lighting. There is a full-size electrical fridge (to make sure everything is properly cool) plus plug points to charge devices.

Towels, linen and gas are supplied. There is one queen size bed in the main room, and then a bunk bed in a separate room, so it accommodates four people very comfortably.

We don't have wifi, and prefer our guests to take a digital detox. But digital nomads can still come and stay while working if they are prepared to use mobile data (MTN only).


We encourage our guests to take longer stays when visiting us, and our pricing is graded accordingly - the longer you stay, the better value. Our reason for doing so is to make our tourism more harmonious - for our guests, for ourselves and most certainly for mother nature. A two-night weekend is scarcely enough to shake off the stress of a life in the city, leaving no time at all to truly engage with nature, in mutual experience - rather than simply taking from her healing power allopathically. The reduced load on water and washing is also more sustainable in our dry area.

All of our spaces are priced as folllows:
3-Night Stay (the minimum length stay we offer): R2400 (R800 per day)
4-Night Stay (recommended minimum): R3200 (R800 per day)
7-Night Stay: R4900 (R700 a day)
14-Night Stay: R8400 (R600 a day)
