Book review: Camp & Caravan

Compiled: Tracy Knox

If you enjoy travelling and exploring our beautiful country, then Camp & Caravan is for you. Published by MapStudio, this handy guide, which is available in both English and Afrikaans, will assist you in choosing your destination, from a mountainous camping or caravan park, to a star-rated beach resort or remote bush camp - there really is something to suit everyone's tastes.

With more than 600 sites listed, finding a place to stay is quick and easy as each province has its own chapter, the chapters are colour-coded and there's a quickfinder index listing of all the sites in the front of the guide. Each entry contains a brief description of the site, type of resort, and the Tourism Grading Council rating, where applicable. Full contact details and GPS co-ordinates are also supplied.


Other great features about this guide include symbols at the end of each listing to indicate price range, facilities, and amenities. You will also find toll road and distance information, as well as detailed provincial and area maps. To ensure that you haven't forgotten anything, there's also a comprehensive and useful camping checklist, with emergency numbers. Going on holiday has never been so easy!


With this handy guide by your side, you need never worry about running out of ideas of where to go again.
