While camping, one can really get to know a country and its animals, spend evenings under the bright stars and listen to the unique African night sounds of the Jackals, lions, hyena and the melodic calls of nocturnal birds such as nightjars and owls.

Routes and destinations for a camping holiday in South Africa

Where to begin your South Africa camping trip
The starting point for your camping trip will be either in Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town, depending upon which airport you decide to use. Campervans / motorhomes are for hire near to all these airports. Plan your route according to your interests; if you enjoy wildlife, spend more time in the north eastern parts of South Africa at camping sites in places like the Kruger National Park, St Lucia and Hluhluwe.

The South African Eastern Escarpment
The Eastern Escarpment is spectacular with mountains, canyons and waterfalls, an area you must visit if your are in the Kruger Park area. There are lovely camping sites with very good facilities in the Blyde River Canyon area with beautiful places to visit including God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes and Pilgrims Rest.

The best road from the Kruger National Park to the East Coast and St Lucia is via Swaziland which has great camping sites in wildlife reserves where you have animals moving through and sleeping in your camping site. Swaziland border crossings are simple and the roads in the country are good, but beware of animals in the road.

The South African north East Coast
Destinations  include Kosi Bay, Sodwana Bay, iSimangaliso, St Lucia. At all of these places along the north east coast of South Africa, camping sites for motor homes have good clean facilities and are close to the beach. This part of South Africa also has many game reserves abundant wildlife with activities including turtle nesting tours, whale watching, game viewing tours, fishing, kayaking and hiking amongst others.

The Drakensberg Mountains
Camping in the Drakensberg is one of the experiences on your South Africa camping trip which you will never forget. You can either use one of the many camping sites as a base camp for day trails, or you can hike with tents on walking trails and sleep in the mountains on a multiple day walking trail. An alternative to camping in the Drakensberg is the use of caves, which can be booked ahead of time, ensuring you find the cave empty. Please bear in mind that the high ground is cold in the winter so you have to be well prepared when camping in South Africa in the mountains in the winter.

The Great Karoo - Central South Africa
Big Sky Country as it is also called, semi desert with plenty of sunshine, awesome landscapes and a photographers paradise. Traveling through the karoo can take 2 days and there are several good camping sites to spend the night out in the South African great wide open. The Karoo is one of the best places in the world for star gazing and astronomy and the town of Sutherland is home to the SALT (South African Large Telescope), an international astronomy project situated here because of the clean air and minimal light pollution in this part of South Africa.

The Garden Route

Destinations include Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, Wilderness and Mossel Bay. In this part of South Africa, camping sites are situated close to the beach and are perfect for a few days of relaxation after the drive through the Karoo.

The Western Cape

In this area of South Africa, camping sites are situates along the coast, in the mountains and at several dams and lakes. The area is characterized by vineyards, wine farms and beautiful mountains which drop down to the ocean.
