Six things that surprised me about Campervan travel in South Africa.

Despite being well-seasoned travelers, going on a caravaning holiday was new for both Dave and I. We are both privileged in having had access to holiday houses that gave us a very insular idea of what a holiday was. We always went to the same places, with the same extended family and friends and mixed with people with similar backgrounds.Then we both entered in to the tourism industry and have in our adult life spent much time in top-end hotels, safari lodges and resorts. We don’t have any experience of South Africa’s camping and caravan community and feel sure we have missed out.
