10 affordable and comfortable places to stay for Rocking the Daisies

Posted by Craig Leyenaar on 27 September 2011

Rocking the daises, music festival, outdoors, camping. It’s a winning formula. That is unless your tent was designed by NASA scientists with the same space restrictions as a space shuttle, you aren’t a fan of being woken up by your own sweat or having random staggering strangers decide your campsite is a lot more convenient than theirs (if they even know the difference). Then maybe this list might be for you. Another attraction of these places is the chance to see a bit more than dirt-streaked, beer sodden revellers. Make a trip of it and stop off at some of these places for under R400 within 30 km of Cloof Wine Estate and Rocking the Daisies.
