Wigwam holiday in Paternoster

Paternoster, West Coast
Paternoster has to be one of the most popular towns to visit along the South African West Coast. The village offers tourists and visitors a truly unique experience – whether it’s buying freshly caught crayfish from the locals or hiking through the Cape Columbine Nature Reserve.

Paternoster, West CoastAll put aside, Paternoster has another little gem that is well worth investigating. Ever heard of glamping? Well this what has become known as ‘glamorous camping’ and Farr Out has created an exciting experience in “” for visitors seeking the luxury of hotel accommodation alongside the adventure and escapism of camping.

A wigwam tepee (tipi) adventure in Southern Africa is the perfect romantic getaway along with all the amenities, comforts and even free WiFi. And once you’re relaxing in an outdoor wood-fired Hot Tub, you may never want to live any other way.

“Wigwam in style for a completely unique experience.”

Paternoster, West CoastFarr Out is located on the road as you enter the village and is a very peaceful space, away from the hustle and bustle of the vil­lage, but close enough to walk down to the beach or to the Panty Bar for a sundowner.

Owners Deon van Schalkwyk and Marion Lubitz were inspired by the wigwams while visiting the USA. Marion ensures that this is no ordinary wigwam and that you’ll enjoy the same comforts as those offered in a room in the main guest house, the only difference is that the walls are made from canvas.

As you make your way up the quaint shell pathway, you’ll be mesmerised by a beautiful view of an indigenous garden and the ocean. And if you’re an early riser you’ll get a glimpse of the wildlife that is only really around when they think no-one is looking. There is also a braai area just beneath the open-sided wigwam, where you can prepare the crayfish or fish you purchased in the village.

Paternoster, West CoastThe best time to utilize the wood-stoked hot tub is just after the sun disappears so that you can enjoy stargazing our expansive night sky.

If you’re searching for accommodation in Paternoster, you’ll come across hundreds of options, but the wigwam is something exceptionally unique.

Since word has spread about this wigwam, it has become very popular, especially as a romantic getaway. So make sure you phone ahead and book in advance if you would like to experience a night or more glamping.
