The Storytellers The Storytellers Experience the Rocklands wilderness

Tortoise Terrace

Glamping right up under the cliffs, sitting under the stars in the wilderness. Sleeps 4.

Tortoise Terrace is our most private, close to nature space. This is the spot to choose if you really want the sense of being in the wild, with nature all around you.

It is a simple space, but has everything you might need. The bedrooms are in a covered, luxury safari tent. The kitchen and bathroom are in a small wooden cabin alongside. The kitchen is gas powered with electric fridge, water is from a gas geyser, and lights are solar powered. There is a plug to charge devices.

The space has a shaded deck with outdoor dining and living area. and a large stone braai for those late night cookouts. A circular seating area right in the bush has a fire pit for nights beneath the stars.

Towels, linen and gas are supplied. The unit has one queen size bed in the main room of the tent, and then a bunk bed in a separate room, so it accommodates four people in total.

We have no wifi and encourage guests to take a digital detox, but digital nomads can still come and stay 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 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)
