With sweeping hills of perfectly manicured grass, plenty of trees, water and swimming in every direction, and beautiful scenic rolling hills occupying the view line across the water, Hazlemere not only looks beautiful, it’s also surprisingly close, with Durban and northern suburbs only 25 mins drive or Uber.
The drive is very safe and easy, and there’s no dirt roads at all, you arrive on tar roads right at the festival entrance.
But expect to see Hazlemere glisten with magic as the arena gets decorated with lighting shows, laser beams, and psychedelic patterns, and the venue is transformed into an amazing outdoor wonderland to bring in the new year.
Camping on the 31st December is completely free and included in the ticket price. And the camping space is almost limitless with giant expanses of soft grass, plenty of waterside camping, plenty of shaded spots, and plenty of elevated spots as well as numerous sites of incredible natural beauty.
For those who wish to stay longer, there’s also no limit to how long you stay, you may arrive as early as you like, and stay as long as want. Simply pay the Hazlemere parks board directly for any extra days.
