A Tented camp and campsite almost halfway between Ceres and Calvinia in the Tankwa karoo.

Situated in the 3200Ha Stonehenge Nature Reserve, the camp borders the Tankwa National Park on two sides. The Tankwa river, normally dry, except after heavy rains, runs through the farm.

With the annual rainfall in the area of about 80mm, it is the driest part of South Africa and perhaps the least populated area in SA. Vegatation is mostly Gannabush on the low lying areas. Hoodia, (also known as Gharp) grows naturally on the property.

Tankwa Tented Camp

The reserve host a number of annual events, of which the "Bike & Fly Inn" attracts about 25 planes and many bikes every year. AfrikaBurn is hosted on a dry pan (April), while the other big fun event is BikeBurn in May.

Our camp is popular as a wedding venue and other celebrations while various videos and advertisements have been made here.
