For a city detox, 7 Passes is ideal; it might only be a 10-minute drive from the village of the Wilderness, but apart from the massive power lines that run overhead, you could be in the middle of nowhere.
There are only six luxury tents, all set on wooden platforms right on the water. Each unit has a large deck looking out over the lake. The decks are spacious and each contain two large wooden loungers and a table. Comfortable beds, lovely white percale linen with a subtle African design, and big puffy pillows all ensure that you drift off in style, lulled by the occasional bird call and the odd splash from the water. Lovely solid oak cupboard and dressers provide ample space for all your belongings. A fridge and microwave oven enable you to have anything as hot or cold as you wish. A kettle, generous sized mugs and all the makings for tea and coffee are on a table conveniently located next to the electric plugs. A tray is included for it is assumed that you would want to enjoy your morning coffee on the deck. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi, bath, shower and lots of lovely soaps, candles and bubbles to create a relaxing or romantic mood. The Jacuzzi does take a very long time to fill up, but it is worth the wait. It certainly does not feel like camping.
50 meters from the tents is the Boma, or communal meeting and eating area. A large fire pit outside creates a social space for chatting, enjoying a sundowner or getting to know other guests. It is also where you can get paddles for the canoes if you wish to spend some quiet time on the water. A short walk takes you to a little forest and a large raised bird hide. This is a great spot in the early evening.
Breakfast at the Boma includes fruit juice, coffee, yoghurt and cereals, followed by one of the best omelets I have ever tasted. We also had our evening meals here, by prior arrangement, and were very impressed by the Kudu potjie (antelope meat slow cooked in red wine and served with rice and seasonal vegetables)
