South Africa offers numerous exciting places to camp and with such a beautiful countryside and weather, there is no wonder why many individuals and families enjoy recreational camping in South Africa.
Camping involves providing your own accommodation at a camp site or resort which offers various facilities to campers such as:
- Stand /area to set up camp
- Electrical Points
- Bathroom Facilities
- Dish washing facilities
Depending on where you want to camp and what your needs or preferences are campers can choose from the following lodgings:
Tent - A shelter made out of fabric designed to fit a metal frame which uses pegs and rope to keep the structure secure. Tents are usually put up together with an awning to create a separate living and sleeping area when camping, and more than one tent may be used per family at a campsite.
Caravan - A caravan is a similar to a small motor home, however it is towed behind a vehicle. Caravans offer more security and protection to campers than a tent is able to. Caravans are usually equipped with a small kitchen, cooking area, bedroom and even a portable toilet.
Trailer - A trailer is smaller than a caravan and generally only offers storage space. There are some trailers which are fitted with a tent for campers.
Outdoor Canopy - Unlike a caravan, an outdoor canopy fits onto the bin of a bakkie or 4x4 vehicle and offers amenities such as beds, fold out kitchen, fridge and freezer and storage space, without having to tow anything. An outdoor canopy has everything you need for an unforgettable camping or 4x4 experience.
