Well it has been an interesting couple of months of planning, sourcing, location scouting and eventually, pitching our first ever glamping site! We are so proud and excited to be launching our brand new venture this month, and have so many people to thank for their hard work and support.
Although at times it has been a challenge to source good quality locally produced camping gear, mainly due to the lack of suitable materials for production in South Africa, we certainly do not have a shortage of talented local designers and makers right here in Cape Town.
It has been such a pleasure to work with Karl and Ida from K&I Studio in Muizenberg. Their design work is stunning and it has been amazing to see our brand and website come to life.
Talented duo Leon and Marilet, better known as The Lion and The Lady, were the first two souls to spend a night in one of our tents and managed to capture the Hey Pioneer camp style so beautifully.
And we are incredibly lucky to have access to quality local products and furnishings to help create our proudly South African glamping experiences. Thank you Burgundy Collective, Zana Products, Ménagerie and Hinterveld to name just a few.
We look forward to many more exciting future projects and collaboration!
The Hey Pioneer Team xx
