    We are planning to go to the Kruger Park in May this year from Cape Town and have been trying to find caravan sites en route to break the journey. Having attempted Google and ending up with suggestions everywhere else but where we want to go we are hoping someone who has done the trip could help with suggestions. thanks in anticipation.

    Hi. I may be able to assist with some recommendations but the typing is little slow and cumbersome at the moment with right arm in a sling  for couple of weeks after shoulder operation.

    Are you towing long distance for the first time? What is your average towing speed and how many hours travel do feel comfortable with to do in one day?

    You are welcome to give me a call at 0825763731 or continue with text on forum.

    Hi David

    Sorry to hear about your shoulder problem, hope it gets better soon.

    In the interim we have found a map studio book, “Camp and Caravan” which lists all the sites in SA and should be adequate but if you have specific sites in mind we will be grateful to know which ones.

    This is our first long tow and we are planning to break the journey there and back over three days each way.

    Thanks for the offer.

    Kind Regards

    Dave and Di

    Dave,  at which gate were you planning to you enter and exit the Krugerpark? Alternatively which camp would you be visiting first and last in the Park?

    Reason for asking is to suggest best route and stopovers.

    Rgds.

    Dave there are alternative routes between Gauteng and the Park and all depends where you enter/exit the Park.

    Chosen route may also be influenced depending on what you are towing ie. Off-roader or soft/ on road van.

    We have slept over at following campsites in the past and no reason to complain:

    Karoo National  Park,  Beaufort West

    Travalia, Three Sisters

    Forever Resort, Gariep Dam (stands with private bathrooms)

    Reyneke Park, Bloemfontein ( stands with private bathrooms) – options in Bloemfontein limited

    For stopover in Jhb if required suggest you google Airport En Route Lodge & Campsite in Benoni

    From Jhb to the KrugerPark the preferred route will depend on road conditions and which gate you choose to enter/exit the Park.

    Kind regards.

    David
