The Lang Elsie’s Kraal restcamp

The Lang Elsie’s Kraal restcamp, in the Bontebok National Park in Swellendam, situated on the banks of the Breede River, is the first rest camp in South African National Parks to be built according to a “Touching the Earth Lightly” design. Named after a Khoe-Khoe Chieftain who lived there with her clan in the 18th century, the camp of 10 units provides pristine scenery of the park, Breede River and Langeberg Mountains – a perfect rest stop for visitors.

This project was done with Tracey and Donald Brink while I was a partner at Tradon Architects & Consultants in Knysna.
