This is what you can expect to find out about the Southern African Safari Campsites featured below and on the following pages.
I only feature sites where I have personally camped so you can be assured of my first hand experiences of these resorts and camping grounds.
Not all camping grounds and resorts are in the same league as far as luxury and standards are concerned. Some are really luxury 5 star resorts. At the other end of the scale you get very basic and rustic wilderness campsites.
You need to take this in consideration especially when
visiting off the beaten
track wilderness destinations where you sometimes even have to provide the most basic amenities yourself.
The sites featured here are all places that stand out in my mind. They all have something very special to offer, be it in the location, the attractions or even just the place itself.
Some Camping spots you want to return to year after year. With others, you are content to say that you have camped there but there is nothing so special about it to entice you to return.
I would love to return to each and every place featured below because for me, they have that special something that makes your stay memorable such as this beautiful campsite on the beach at Pomene, Mozambique in the picture below.
Few people visit it so you are likely to have the campsite to
yourself. No fences separates you from the wildlife. Very few camping
sites in South Africa allows you to get this close to the wildlife.
Situated in the Limpopo Trans Frontier Park, Aguia Pescueira overlooks the Massingir Dam. It is most certainly worth it to spend a day or two and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this wilderness campsite.
You can pick between caravan or tent camping sites. The camp has a lot of shady trees and most of the stands has grass cover.
The area is Malaria free and much cooler than the Lowveld
Kruger National Park is situated. You can also view the Big Five
is ideal for a Bushveld Safari breakaway which is not far
from the Gauteng cities of Johanneburg and Pretoria.
Situated in the Magaliesberg Mountains this destination has a temperate climate.
The resort provides lots of facilities including heated pools
(Indoors as well as outdoors). The caravan / camping park has lots of
space. The stands are well marked and has electricity, water, grass and
lots of shade. Buffelspoort
is a great place to unwind..
This wilderness camp is no exception. You can hear the silence, experience the absolute peace of the setting. You want to chill, my friend? This is it...
Duiwekloof is a small campsite which offers basic amenities. It is however the neatest, cleanest wilderness campsite that I have ever seen.
