Camping RetrEats

Tshireletso Mokate is the 31-year-old founder of Camping RetrEats, a delectable camping and feasting experience that blends the best of all the worlds. Mokate was inspired to simplify camping and turn it into a truly relaxing experience.

“We take the chores out of camping – the tents, the fires and the cooking – and turn it into the properly relaxing experience it is meant to be,” says Mokate. “I wanted to create something that lets people enjoy the outdoors and still have the time to socialise while doing it.”

Camping RetrEats moves across some of South Africa’s best campsites in search of the perfect relaxation getaway spots. The private chef creates delicious food, the organisers provide adventure activities and camping essentials while nature provides the rest.

The company provides planned camping retreats that are designed to bring people together from all walks of life and also creates private group retreats that cater for specific needs. Team-building activities are also offered.

“The point is to get people relaxed and away from the city,” says Mokate. “You’re not allowed to partake in any single chore while you are camping with us. I love to see people having a good time and enjoying the service we provide. Most of all, I like to see them make new friends and strengthen their bonds with strangers over a fire. That’s why I do this.”

Camping RetrEats ventures into magical spaces in Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, the Free State and Limpopo.
