    “the purest form of relaxation”


    We all need to unwind and recharge our batteries, and nothing does this better than the Buitengewoon wood-fired hot tub. It provides a peaceful getaway in the convenience of your own home which you can escape to any time of the year. All you need to do is light the fire, mix the warm water, sit back, relax and enjoy the soothing comfort of your Buitengewoon wood-fired hot tub.

      Our first experience with the buitengewoon hot tubs was when we visited various Africamps. We decided that it must one day form part of our house build.
      The entire process with Buitengewoon from quoting to ordering to delivery was a pleasant, professional and hassle-free experience. We received our hot tub neatly and securely packaged, by the committed time. Assembly was easy and quick with all parts included (except the 3 screws for the chimney). I decided to paint the mild steel stove with high temperature paint to protect it against rust.
      We love it! Weather has been too warm to try the "donkie" but soon...
      Our Buitengewoon hot tub might be our best purchase ever! We use it come rain or shine, with a blazing fire or cold water - absolutely love it.
      Service from the onset was commendable; the company was really helpful from enquiry through choosing accessories to delivery.
      After much investigation of the hot tubs on the market , we are so so happy we decided to go the BUITENGEWOON snorkel hot tub. The natural looking wooden cladding blends into our fynbos garden perfectly. The fiberglass molding is extremely comfortable and rigid - and nice and deep which is a major plus ! The donkey works very well , and to add - we have installed a small Bestway pump from Takealot and filter to circulate the water - while heating to do the mixing for us - and when not in use circulates and filters the water with a small spar float and tiny chlorine tablet keeps the water fresh for many days. The drinks tray is a MUST purchase. Pleased we also selected the Rino wood option. Happy to assist anyone wanting to add the pump.
      We fell in love with the Buitengewoon hot tubs while visiting Africamps. The quality is next level and we enjoy the fact that you do not have to sit on a bench but can float if you wish. The other key consideration was that the Wood-fired Hot Tub with snorkel heater is more compact and fit exactly in the space that we had for it. Just loving it!

      Africamps – the producer of buitengewoon Hot Tubs

      We initially developed and produced the Buitengewoon wood-fired hot tubs specifically for our glamping business, AfriCamps. Installed at multiple tents across our 15 glamping locations, they quickly became a highlight for our guests. Guests were often requesting where they could order one for their homes!

      After rigorous real-world testing in our camps, we began selling them to the public. Now, with hundreds of hot tubs in private residences and many accommodation offerings around South Africa, we invite you to experience the magic. Contact us to find out how our hot tubs can enhance your private garden or thrill your guests at your own hospitality business.
