We fell in love with Mongolia and want to share this experience with the Netherlands. Therefore we brought a Mongolian Ger from Ulaanbaatar and found a place for it on a campsite near De Hoge Veluwe National Park. Part of the earnings goes to charity projects committed to cleaning the Mongolian steppes. Although we don't have steppes, we did find a private place on an easy-going campsite. It's definitely an unique experience to wake up in the round space of the Ger with its Mongolian interior.
The Ger is one round space where traditionally the whole family lives. We’ve furnished it with a place to cook, a place to sleep and a place to lounge. Most of the furniture comes straight out of Ulaanbaatar.
The Ger is on a quiet campsite, with other camping guests around you. The campsite is directly surrounded by forest where you can go for a hike or a bike ride. This year we found a new spot for our Ger on the campsite. We're very excited to be planting trees and growing grass around the Ger. And we’re also keen to make the garden around the Ger a perfect place to reside!
You have access to the Ger itself. In its round space you’ll find a double bed, a couch to lounge on or for an extra guest, a gas burner fit for cooking, and that's it! We’ve also provided some basic cooking supplies and some salt and pepper, cooking oil, tea and instant coffee. There are Sanitary Facilities on the campsite (of course not inside the tent), where you can find toilets, wash basins with mirrors, electricity for charging your phone and warm showers. Wifi is available near the main building.
Although I’m regularly on the campsite to prepare everything for your stay, you can arrive on your own and at your own time. I live in a nearby city, not on the campsite itself, but you can always contact me when you have any questions.
The campsite is Alcohol Free. If possible, please try to respect this and keep your alcohol consumption to a minimum. Or, better yet, accept the challenge to stay completely alcohol free during your visit!
The Ger is placed on a campsite with other guests. We too would have loved to stay in the wild nature, but that's still not allowed. The campsite is full of friendly people, quiet and in the middle of the woods.
Still, keep in mind that the Ger is not a house, it’s a tent. Therefore it’s an adventurous stay during which you'll be living in a tent. All the facilities are a luxury, not something to be taken for granted. Please keep in mind that all animals, big and small, belong to the woods. Please keep any food in closed containers, so that you do not attract them.
Within the Ger keep in mind that you are sleeping in a unique tent. We got them out of Ulanbaatar and that is where we need to go if something gets broken. So please don't. Keep in mind that fire burns and needs to be handled carefully.
The campsite is very special, the guests are mostly there for the quiet nights and nature. There is no alcohol sold on the campsite, and the guests do not use alcohol in public. Take your time here as a recharging time, where you invest in relaxation or reload before you start your next adventure.
Growing up in Arnhem made me fall in love with the Veluwe. So even after traveling the world studying Cultural Anthropology, to me it is still the most beautiful place to live. I explore it daily with my border collie Pip and warmblood gelding Zen.
During my travels trough Mongolia I came up with the plan of creating the perfect nature- getaway; combining my love for Mongolian culture and beloved Veluwe. Right now I'm a free lancer who is also working hard to turn my cosy Mongolian Yurt into a true five-star worthy palace.
