Spending the December holidays camping for the first time?

To make your trip a lot easier, here are some tips:

  1. Practice setting up your tent at home. It will help you master the art of setting your tent in minutes.
  2. Organize your gear into clear bins if possible and group like items together. You don’t want to have to spend 30 minutes hunting for the kettle.
  3. Ensure your food is in secure containers. South Africa has loads of opportunistic monkeys who love to help themselves to a snack or two.
  4. Don’t forget to check and charge all batteries for your lights, headlamps and fans.
  5. Start your trip off early so that you arrive in daylight, this will make setting up a lot easier.
  6. Plan your meals to avoid taking the entire grocery store.
