And of course, there are a range of hippie-luxe accommodation for you to select, from boutique RV camps to luxurious tented stays. Each of the options can accommodate up to four guests. We say, opt for deluxe safari tents or the bell tents for the air-conditioned space and rustic-chic furnishings. Do consider the convenient campervan if you’d like to cruise around the area with your pals.Wonderfruit 2017
