5 pet-friendly caravan camping sites in the Western Cape


Traveling with a dog can have its downfalls as it isn’t always easy to find pet-friendly places and if you do come across some, they often only allow small dog breeds. 

What’s a getaway without the entire family – fur babies included? Pet-friendly caravan camping sites are ever-expanding, especially in the Western Cape.

However, it is important to keep a few valid points in mind when taking your canine companion on a camping trip with you:

  • It is always important to inquire about bringing dogs before booking your camping trip
  • Make sure your dog is up to date with vaccinations
  • Bring your poo spade and bags along to clean after your dog
  • Be sure that your dog does not bother other campers as not everybody is a dog lover and it may cause a neighborly feud if your dog had to jump on other campers or their children
  • Make sure your dog is well-behaved and not aggressive or unsocial towards other dogs or people
  • Be sure to check for ticks if camping in September – October
  • Dog camping gear
  • Bring enough outdoor safe toys
  • Watch out for allergies
  • Never leave your dog unattended and watch out for wildlife
  • Protect your dogs paws
  • Remember a dog first aid kit
  • Beware of overheating. It is important to have an awning where you dog can lay under and keep your dog hydrated. Click, here to view awnings
