    We all know that caravanning and camping holidays are great – but if you pick the wrong site, your adventure can turn a little sour.
    Admit it, we’ve all chosen a not-so-ideal location sometime in our lives.
    Whether you are going to a resort with all the amenities from ablutions to game rooms and heated indoor swimming pools, to bush camps without electricity and barely a demarcated site, choosing the right spot can make or break a holiday.
    So, how does one choose the best site?

    Good security, normally we go for parks that have been approved by the CCSA for starters, heated pool mini golf, restaurant and within a 100 km from home. Added bonus if the park is next to water- river, lake or dam. For longer stays the sea is our first choice. A park that’s known for good ablution blocks and maintains strict no noise control. Level stands and shade also an added bonus. A definite NO is gravel roads to the park entrance unless under 1 km.

    I prefer good old word of mouth from trusted sources.

    For us, it depends on the season and the prevailing weather conditions at that time, eg, in the winter we camp more in the mountains and in the summer we camp more towards the coast. Following on from that, if the weather is windy we go more for a sheltered spot, and if there is no wind then we go more for a spot with a view. If it is hot then we go more for a shady spot, and if it is mid winter or cold, then we go more for a sunny spot.
