Find Your Escape: Camping

The love of nature, the need to escape the bright city lights for a bit or even just some solitude as a means of solo, self-care. Camping may not be for everyone, but it certainly is the easy, go-to option for any one of these reasons.

If you do it right, it can be one an affordable and truly rewarding experience.

This week we’ve rounded up a diverse selection to consider

Having a great camping experience highly depends on your setting preference – and while the trend of urban camping may be taking things to the extreme, the choice between rooftop or grounded tents is a stirring debate many an avid camper has had. 

Whether you take it high or low, these four local spots encapsulate a quality camping atmosphere that allows you to kick back with a book in your hammock or look forward to the warm fireside glow. Some even offer a cabin option for those less inclined to tent it out. Whether you plan to rope the family along or fly solo, one of these four SA campsites should do the trick.  

In the mood for something epic?

Any 4x4 enthusiast worth their weight in road-tripping, wander-dust should sign-up for one of these two adventures.

This 17-day Zambia to Malawi #AfriTravel camping trip is one for the books. Filled with lots of off-road driving you will be able to explore Southern Africa’s significant national parks – with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. While this Namibia's Skeleton Coast 4x4 experience takes you along a unique part of West Africa - A rich treasure-trove of discovery for those fascinated by natural beauty and wildlife.
